You are invited to sit back, relax and let Samantha, a dachshund/terrier canine, take you on a journey written through her eyes and perception of how life looks to an animal. A narrative that will take you through her life and how she and her owner, Patricia Daniels formed a connection that is described as "from one heart to another." A wonderful, heartfelt bond that every human can learn to form with their pet. It is a story filled with fun, love, mischief and pathos. Samantha will explain how her beloved human trained her with persistence, love and patience through images, pictures, thoughts and words, with this same technique, used on the feline species. You will learn the way to become quiet to do this with mastering a meditation recipe. The same method that will help you open your heart to hear and see what your pet is thinking and feeling. This is a procedure used by gentle animal trainers without using physical force. More of Samantha's adventures will be coming soon.
