Our beloved human, or simply, our Mom, is also known by countless
people in the world as Supreme Master Ching Hai. As a young child,
She already showed signs that She was destined to become a Saint
through Her natural great love for all beings, including us animals.
Since becoming an enlightened Master, She has devoted Herself
to the teaching of the Quan Yin Method (an ancient meditation
practice focusing on the inner Sound and Light) and the promotion
of vegetarianism. She once said that if only one half of the world’s
people became vegetarians, we would have peace on Earth. The killing
of animals for food has culminated in a violent atmosphere, which in
turn sprouts violence, wars and misery among humans. Therefore, the
lives of us animals and those of humanity cannot be separated.
To those who follow our human Saint, She might be a Master or a
great teacher, but to us animals, She is just our loving Mom. She does
all things a Mom does, like bathing us, cooking for us, singing to us,
taking us for walks, and playing with us. We hope we can share Her
love with all our animal friends in the world, and that the day will
come when each and every one can live a life with an abundance of
food, warm shelter, and love, the way we do.
With much love
To Humans and all.
and Peter, the stray well-mannered dog
For the dogs in my life
And all the animals alike
Despite the fact that we are an odd herd
with different species of dogs,
we all have one thing in common —
this beloved human “pet,” we all own!
Inspired by the dogs

And to all the dogs that I love:

Biography of The Supreme Master Ching Hai
The Supreme Master Ching Hai was born in Central Au Lac
( Vietnam ). At the age of eighteen, Master Ching Hai moved to
England to study, and then later to France and then Germany, where
She worked for the Red Cross and married a German physician.
After two years of happy marriage, with Her husband’s blessings,
She left Her marriage in pursuit of enlightenment, thus fulfilling an
ideal that had been with Her since Her childhood. This began a time
of arduous pilgrimages to many different countries that ended only
when She met a perfect living Master in the Himalayas . Master
Ching Hai received the divine transmission of the inner Light and
Sound, which She later called the Quan Yin Method. After a period
of diligent practice, She attained Perfect Enlightenment.
To satisfy the longing of sincere Truth seekers, the Supreme Master
Ching Hai offers the Quan Yin Method of meditation to people
of all nationalities, religions and cultural backgrounds. Her message
of love and peace brings spiritual liberation and hope to people
throughout the world, reminding all to uphold Truth, Virtue, and
Beauty in life.
Benny, my first“official”dog. Maltese.
Protective, loving, loyal and also sticky
(likes to stick close). He is a scholar, officially.
Nicknames: The Boss, The Alfa, Big Brother, The
He attended/graduated from a training school
named K-9 Cadet. The school was impressed by
his behavior and discipline. When he graduated, I
came to bring him home. The teacher told him to lay
down. He did. Anxious to be in my arms, but “not
allowed to walk” by the teacher, he crawled toward
me inch by inch, like a trained soldier. And reached
me in the still “down” position, as the teacher and
all present shed tears of emotion. “My God! We did
not teach him this!”
Benny is very compassionate and caring. If
someone is sad, he comes to offer comfort and love
to that person till he or she is cheered up. One of
my attendants used to play drama like crying, and
Benny would always come to him and kiss him all
over every time. Benny specially loves children and
other animals. If he finds an injured bird or other,
he will sit there on guard till I come over and take
care of it. He is ever so quiet and gentle as not to
frighten the wounded creature.
He loves Veggie Green Bones like crazy. But if I
give with the intention to pacify him as I’m leaving
the house (and him) to go out, he won’t take the
bone, but goes away from it into a corner and sulks!
He sneaks to my place/bed anytime if let him,
forsaking all comfort of his own bed/sofa.
Every time I came home, or let him in my room, he is
excited like Heaven, rolling all over my bed, my sofa,
or sleeping bag, or on the floor – just depends on
He is a loving being incarnate. He is a high-level
soul who humbly plays the role of a little dog, just
to love me.
I was born in Florida.
Have never seen this white snow before!
The sun shines where me & Mom lived,
Even in the winter
except when we walked together
in the garden, or on the beach
I have always stayed indoors.
Just checking if snow is really as cold as people keep telling me.
One thing I tell you, it is very soft. I can dig easily.
Canada is really too “cool”!
Even for a“furry”like me!
