melancholic and suffering from hot spots around the tail and on
paws. Louie's human companion Gail has been with Louie since he
was six weeks old. He was given to her by a man who was unable
to keep him. Louie has always been a happy dog until the recent
melancholic episodes. He is very sturdy physically although he
has always had a heart murmur. Carol is a runner and has been
for many years. Louie is her running companion and as such has
had lots of physical exercise his whole life. He is extremely
healthy in a general sense and is often mistaken for a puppy.
Carol is a very spiritually oriented person and
Louie has a very strong bond with her. Through the years when
Carol would experience a spiritual opening or expansion Louie

childhood that would also arise causing her some discomfort as

overwhelmed by the intensity and often conflicting emotions that
Carol experienced at such times and he worried that something
bad would happen to her. As a massage therapist working in her
home, Carol often assisted her clients in the release of
traumatic emotions. Louie often felt at the mercy of the
emotions of Carolís clients too.

when she went running. The man who gave Louie up originally did
so because he felt taking care of a puppy was too much trouble.
Louie wondered if, as he grew older, he will be too much trouble
for Joyce too. Louie wanted very much to experience the positive
aspects of Carolís spiritual life with but could not
adequately process the psychic toxicity absorbed from Joyce and
her clients. . His skin itched and his heart murmured.

negative emotions from others.
