The Dog Owner: Alexandra Lowry; Life Coach & Motivational Speaker
Integrative Life Coach
Infinite Possibilities Trainer
The Wisdom Alliance, LLC
Dog type and Name:
Chihuahua named “Paco”
Q: Why did you choose this dog?
He chose us! He was rescued off the LA Freeway (jumped in car when she pulled over and opened the car door) by my son’s fiancé who nursed him back to health, and shortly thereafter we adopted him & my son flew him home to us in CT.
Q: Do you talk to your dog? If so, what do you talk about?
I talk to him all the time. He patiently listens to me vent or when I need to talk things out with someone, he’s always attentive. I admit I baby talk to him too!
Q: If he could talk to you, what would he say?
“Don’t sweat the small stuff…, or, “I want to OWN you, human!” “PLEASE, let me go chase those pesky chipmunks!”
Q: If your dog had a job or career, what would he be doing?
He would be a traffic cop…he loves chasing cars, and mostly delivery trucks!
Q: What lesson in life has your dog taught you?
Paco makes me stop & laugh every day with his antics, so he teaches me the importance of humor in life, look at the lighter side, laugh, and take a pause during your day to do just that!
Q: How does your dog inspire you?
The fearless unbounded energy he has at times, and his champion “can-do” spirit is inspiring. His unconditional love and joy at greeting us at the door each time we return home is a reminder that we humans need to do this for each other as well, every day. Gratitude.
Q: Where is your dog’s favorite place to go with you?
One of his favorite places is for a walk anywhere/anytime. I can’t even say the word out loud and now resist even spelling it because I think he’s figured it out! He also loves to take an afternoon nap in my lap.
Q: Who or what does your dog find the most interesting?
My sons, chipmunks, the UPS truck (love/hate thing), other dogs, and kids of all ages.
Q: What is the most annoying thing other dog owners do?
Letting their dogs wander and poop in your yard.
Q: What does being a responsible dog owner mean to you?
It means you don’t give up on them when the going gets tough; they have a rough patch, or need extra care & attention. They give WAY more to us then we could possibly return in kind.
Q: If your dog was a Life Coach, what words of wisdom would he have to say?
Paco, the Life Coach, would say, “Treat all living things with loving kindness. Keep an open heart and a curious mind. Listen more and bark less. Every experience and everyone that comes into your territory is here to teach you…stay alert!”
Q: Do you ever dress up your dog? If so, as what?
I have only put a sweater on him to go outside in the winter. He gets chilled easily being a hot weather doggie transplanted to New England! He would not tolerate “dressing up”, he’s toomachismo for that…we call him…
Q: How has your dog changed your life?
Paco has brought more fun, laughter and joy into our household. I have older boys now, but they all love him up like a baby – it’s sweet to see. Also, you have to give of yourself to be a dog owner…you have to be less selfish because dogs require attention and care. I believe being a dog owner in the best sense makes you strive to be a better person.
Q: Does your dog have a philosophy of life?
BE IN THE MOMENT AND APPRECIATE EVERY MINUTE!
Q: I love my dog because he makes me feel loved every day!
Q: Have you ever made dog treats for your dog? If so, please share your recipe. No I have never made treats for him, but I do give him small bits of raw vegetables or apple as a treat!
WAGGLEVIEWS: These interviews are focused on woman leaders in business, the community, or at home. My hope in doing this is to present remarkable and respected women in their community with their beloved pets. Who can resist reading about dogs and what these women do? This is a platform for women to display their talents; their own business, a new book, a deeply loved passion for a charity or their own job. It also shows their love for their dog!
Thank you Alexandra for taking the time to participate in the Waggleview.
