The they I am talking about are the animals that seem to intuitively know who needs them. Once a client told me the story about how she adopted a dog from a human society because she needed a companion. Her husband was dying from cancer.
It seems that the dog immediately understood the assignment that she was given. As soon as the woman picked up her new family member from the humane society and put the dog, which was a beagle, into her car. The dog sat right next to the woman on the front seat as if she had done it many times. “It was amazing” she said. What astonished her was how the new family member upon entering the house immediately when to the bedroom where her husband was resting and jumped on the bed and parked her body next to his!
