Some of you have heard this before. Last year at this time, my guide dog Waylon began to have episodes of anxiety and fear. These began while at a friend’s house, when he bolted up out of sleep and fled. My friend and I were able to soothe him, and the episode passed. Later that day, he had another one, and continued to have them periodically. His vet could find nothing to account for them, and most of the time, he was his usual mellow self. Finally, I asked the vet if the flea medicine he was taking might be the cause. She researched it and found that other dogs had had adverse reactions, so we agreed to stop giving it to him. Since then, he has had no other episodes of panic.
What does this have to do with today’s lesson? Simply this: One of the lessons I was practicing when the episodes began was 38. I sent Waylon an intention to know peace many times on February 7, 2018, and the final result was calm for him. It doesn’t matter how long it seems to take for a problem to be resolved. It will be.
