I have so much empathy I often get overwhelmed with emotion. Am I normal, Diego asks, Mishu answers

I have so much empathy I often get overwhelmed with emotion. Am I normal, Diego asks, Mishu answers

Diego,
I’m pretty sensitive to my humans and when I notice they’re in distress, I do one of two things. If the distress comes from them, I just keep them company so they feel better. In this case, I don’t get upset myself (how could that even be helpful?), but I comfort them with my calmness. On the other hand, if I sense distress coming from an external source (i.e. someone they feel threatened by)… well I can get a little crazy trying to protect them. Not sure I recommend that for a human (I think barking would definitely make people think you’re weird), but either way you get the picture — when people you care about are distressed try focus on what you can do to help them, without getting too upset yourself.
Love you Diego!
❤️ Mishu

I like this girl, but I’m nervous to ask her out. Any advice? A. Asks, Mishu answers

I like this girl, but I’m nervous to ask her out. Any advice? A. Asks, Mishu answers

A: Dear A.:  When I meet dogs I like, I give them a play bow to say, ‘hey, let’s play.’ If they bow back and start playing – great. If not, that’s ok too. Maybe ask her if she likes to do something you really like, and if she says yes, invite her to join you sometime. If she says no then you can play by yourself or ask someone else to join you….
… Just think – asking someone to play is actually the easy part. The hard part comes if they say yes and you have to learn to get along.
Love,
Mishu
