This week's topic is pet psychics. Not so much do you believe in them but what would you ask if you did. And what would you expect/want to hear.
I bring up this topic because they had one at the Mountain View Petco grand opening last weekend. I scoffed when I heard about it, but, hey, it was free so I went for it with both my Yorkies.
My question: What kind of life did Jack have before he ended up in the shelter at 10 years old?
Psychic: He was passed around. Mostly among an extended family. He was a breeder and was treated as an object. He never felt loved. When he ended up in the shelter, he was ready to check out. He was tired of life. But you've changed all that. He feels like he's part of the family. You treat him like a dog, not an object. He loves you very much. And he wants you to know that. She also suggested that he could use some front leg massages because of a back leg surgery he had.
Me: Awwwwwwww, Jack! I love you too, buddy!
So then she did Eddie, my 3-year-old who I've had since 10 weeks.
My wife's question: How does he like Jack and Rusty, our two rescues?
Psychic: He doesn't mind them. He is the prince, and everybody is there for him. He's not the king. He doesn't want those responsibilities. He's the favored child and expects everyone to do what he wants.
Kelly: THAT explains it!
Do I believe it? Nah, but it was good entertainment. And the Petco psychic was at least sincere. You know, I want to believe her.
