Nanette: A Very Brave Dog

and how one little dog showed her life

Nanette's attraction!!

E-mail Print PDF

I took Nanette to the Cafe with me today. This is quite a challenge for her because although it's very friendly, it's quite noisy and there are quite a few ' busy ' dogs there.

 What is puzzling me more than anything else is how much attention she attracts from other people!! She's exceptionally quiet and moves calmly ...always beside me and sits through the meal at my side. There's not much space between our table and tables to the left of us but she sits there while people pass and step over her tail...saying a few words to her or giving a quick caress.


 I have never really ' educated ' Nanette, in fact the more I see of ' education' of dogs by humans, the less inclined I feel to involve myself.

Nanette has always come to agreements with me quite naturally just as in fact, Bertie did. He was an exceptionally difficult dog at the beginning....aggressive, epileptic, fearful and it taught me something. That a dog who's owner stands back allowing the dog psychological space to find his own identity rather than the owner's projection!!! is achieving something much more valuable than our concept of ' education' .

 This process..I found... simply bred a quiet respect from the dog for the owner and I suppose that is what people are seeing in Nanette. Yet, it is not only that. She has what people refer to as ' Graciousness'. I am not exaggerating, this quality has become more and more evident and the world around us is noticing. The fact that I order a steak hache for her and a plate of chips for myself may assist the process of course!!

You have a ' difficult ' dog?? Just consider the fact that the difficulty may be you!!! Try changing the tune, stand back.....xx
