Last year my aging dog, Arthur, had a persistent cough. Iris did a reading on him and she felt it was his trachea causing the issue. As a “by the way,” she asked about a hike we had taken him on four years prior. It was a hike that my husband and I had long forgotten about, but Iris described the setting perfectly so I could immediately recall it. She explained how Arthur, who was a small dog, loved that day because he was able to climb on rocks and be taller than us. She was able to give other insights on his thinking that helped us to care for him during his final months. Upon a visit to the veterinarian, an x-ray was taken of Arthur's heart. The diagnosis - his heart was enlarged, pushing his trachea forward, causing his persistent cough! After we took Arthur for his final vet visit, I contacted Iris and asked her to check on him. She gave me great comfort in letting me know that he understood the cycle of life, was grateful for his time with us, and was well cared for. I have seen Iris give information during her readings that she could not have possibly known from any other outside sources (like that hike)! - D.L.
