Hello!  Madi is my family's 8.5 year old Australian Shepherd merle .

My mom and I have been working on animal communication for about the past year, though we usually stay away from the interview communications with our own pets.  But I'm interested in what they have to say!  Would anyone mind having a chat with Madi?  She's the most "verbally" expressive dog I've EVER known, so I don't think this will be a challenge - might be fun for beginners.  Madi is living with my mom at our home in Redding, CT (I'm in Boulder, CO.)

A few things you might want to ask:
-who are your friends?
-what does your living environment look like - inside and outside? how do you feel about living here?
-where do you like to sleep?
-what kinds of things do you do to get our attention?
-what are things you like to do to play?
-what are your joys, fears?

If you feel that you've clicked with Madi on some of these answers, maybe you could try to investigate some of these things:
-the issue of going to the bathroom in the house
-the issue of running away for a few hours at a time (she doesn't do this anymore)
-her general health

Again, I think anyone would really enjoy talking with Madi.  Be sure to tell her that she brings us SUCH joy, and that we love her deeply.  And tell her Sarah will be home from school in a few days! : )

Thank you so much! I look forward to hearing about any conversations with Madi.
