Background to this following Article:
The following is a nice anecdote that my sister, Therese, wrote about my affinity with animals.
I hereby attest that the animals of this world have an affinity with my sister, Celine, as the following descriptions show. I am recording the experiences that show a definite connection between creatures and Celine. The animals respect Celine, treating her as a kindred spirit!
1. Small dog puts both paws on Celine’s knees, ignores all other people.
At a family get together, Celine and I were standing apart from the others. Celine was standing a fair way away from me. A small dog was wandering around. The dog and Celine espied each other and Celine indicated to the dog a little bit. Without much ado, the dog went straight up to Celine and, without Celine’s bidding, put its paws squarely on Celine’s knee and looked up at Celine. Whereupon, Celine patted the small dog and said some encouraging words.
Later on, the dog was seen by me wandering around. I didn’t see it approach anyone else. Although I looked at it and tried to communicate non-verbally to it to come to me, it completely ignored me. The small dog only liked Celine, so it seemed! It found a friend in Celine because it immediately went up to Celine and with no hesitation whatsoever put it’s paws trustingly on Celine’s knee.
