Tonight my daughter is again watching the movie “A Dogs Purpose”. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a brilliant movie that unfortunately hit the headlines over some leaked footage that was sold to the media, of a German Shephard who was reluctant to shoot a scene in the water. There are a few reports available online that outline it all further, but what I really wanted to write about here is the concept behind the book/movie, which sits well with me spiritually, as well as being heart-warmingly beautiful.
Long story short, after some extensive google searching into the behind the scenes of the film, I agreed to let my daughter watch the movie. It tells the story of a soul who incarnates into several lifetimes as a dog, with various owners. I won’t spoil the ending for you if you haven’t seen it, but what really spoke to me with this film, is the idea of Soul Contracts with our pets. I was having this very conversation not that long ago, with my friend and boss, Anthony Grzelka, as we discussed the pet chapter of his new book, that I am very fortunate to be working on with him. I perhaps may have to see if I can talk him into a mini-interview on this subject, as I think lots of people would love to know more about this, and it perhaps may even explain why we sometimes feel more connected to certain pets. While I love all my pets equally, I have had an intense connection and familiarity with a couple, and it makes you wonder if these are perhaps souls who have been our pets before in this life, or even who we have had other lifetimes with.
What I loved so much about this film, was that after several different incarnations, the souls that were meant to be together found their way to each other, along with the love they each so deserved. Thanks to a super special Doggo who did just a fraction of orchestrating. Some may call it luck, some may call it fate, some may call it Karma or contractual soul agreements.. but the one thing I know for sure is that
DOGS ARE AWESOME.
That is all.
