My Little Lioness

Oh, the places I’ve been!  And the faces I’ve seen! (and if you haven’t visited our Facebook group, Faces of Mental Illness, why then, come on over and check us out…leave a comment, or come out with a photo or short video of yourself.  Or just hang out, no pressure.)

I’ve been ambling and camping around the East Coast, hoping to eventually get Out West, but things keep happening.

For instance, at this moment I’m camping in a dear friend’s driveway in Rochester, NY.  She’s a wonderful healer who’s helped me many times over the years.  She’s also my teacher.  Her husband is a brilliant inventor.  She’s Chinese, he’s Polish, and we all love each other dearly, so I am having a lovely time.

Yesterday my healer was giving me an energy treatment, and I was lying face down on her treatment table.  Little Noga, my not-quite-13 lb. Lhasa Apso, was looking on anxiously.  Then she started pawing at my healer’s leg.  Then, when she didn’t stop treating me, Noga levitated up and over the 3 foot high treatment table, landed squarely on my back. and lay down, covering as much of me as her little body could reach!  I believe my little lioness would lay down her life for me.  I cannot imagine a better traveling companion….

Although she does enjoy life's comforts, Noga considers me her property, to be protected at any cost

  1. Laura, nice to know where you are. Noga looks like a sweet girl. Lhasa Apso’s are guard dogs, I have one, Sammy. He’d do the same! Hope your travels on the east coast continue to be safe and therapeutic! Christine

    • You know the Apso nature then! I always had German Shepherds, and this time I wanted a big dog in a small package. She is as big-hearted and courageous as any of my shepherds, and that’s saying something!

    • Thank you, Ashu. Nobody ever expected her to do anything like that! Today she was a bit more trusting and merely nibbled on my healer’s ankle the whole time LOL

  12. Sorry I haven’t been around in a while…a combination of body problems keeping me in bed and away from the computer and oh, so much life being stressful lately. I am so, so happy to know that you have started on your adventure and are enjoying yourself. Not to mention getting some healing! You are in my thoughts even when I’m not here to say so 😉 Keep on enjoying and I’ll try to be following more closely. Peace to your heart (and to Noga’s)

  13. Noga is so cute! I have a service animal that is actually one of my caregivers, one of my best friends and he means the world to me. I couldn’t imagine this life without my Teddy Bear (so named because he’s a 150# Rottweiler). 🙂
