“I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate

person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation of one’s

self, the very meaning of one’s soul. “ ... Edith Wharton

“ A soul mate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the

communicating and communing that takes place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace.”   …  Thomas Moore

People who love dogs often talk about a “lifetime” dog. Lifetime dogs intersect with our lives with particular impact; they’re dogs we love in especially powerful, sometimes inexplicable ways. While we may cherish other pets, we may never feel that particular kind of connection with any of the rest. For lack of a better term, they are dogs we fall in love with.   From “A Good Dog” by Jon Katz

“Once or perhaps twice in a lifetime, if one is lucky, one knows a dog who is very, very special. What makes a dog special? I don’t know. It’s mysterious. An unseen link, an emotional gravity too strong to resist  pulls dog and person together, and they become soulmates.”   Alston Chase from:   “We Give Our Hearts to Dogs to Tear”

But gratitude changes the pain of memory into joy.  The beauties of the past are borne, not as a thorn in the flesh, but as a precious gift in themselves. “

Gods Covenant with the Animal Kingdom

 An original manuscript, by Dr. Galka                

“… God has an ultimate perfect plan to restore all of His creation that has suffered the consequences of the great war, The Fall, or however you wish to refer to the battle that is occurring between good and evil on this planet. I believe this redemptive plan involves all of God’s creatures, not only human beings…..”   (available for Download), or request via Email contact Below
