Animal Message of the Day: Gonzo

From Gonzo: “Let me tell you what I appreciate most is my nose. It’s true! I can smell things that I bet none of you humans can. I can smell things deep into the earth. I can smell crumbs that you don’t even know you left behind. All those ways I can find food with this nose are endless. But, I can smell much more than that. I can smell when the other pigs are scared. I can smell when the horses are concerned. I can smell when humans are sad. I can smell when the Earth is joyful. With this nose, I can tell when the weather is going to change. I can smell the seasons when they are about to change. I appreciate knowing and experiencing how others feel. It matters greatly to me. I may not be able to change the world, but I can change a moment for someone who is sad by making them smile. I can change a day for someone who is confused by helping them to think better. And I can certainly let someone know I care when they don’t think anyone else does. You humans may not have my nose (and that is a sad thing indeed) but you do have the ability to do these things too. Sometimes you can be the one to make the difference when no one else can. It won’t look as cool as when a pig does it….. but you will do it in your own human way.”


In an effort to help us all through the stress, fear, and challenges faced by the COVID-19 virus, we are posting an animal message a day. (All messages through animal communicator/co-founder Dawn Hayman) The animals were each asked: What do you feel appreciation for in your life? Or “What would you like to share?”
