Kinook has left us on April 27,
2016, at the ripe age of sixteen and a half years old. She continues
to live in Tana's heart, and she will always be loved.

I am Kinook, an assisting healer working with
Tana, specializing in emotional healing.
I am a cross-Akita girl, with a sweet, regal
personality and a taste for cheese. I love children and male Golden
Retrievers. My Akita side shows through the blue spots on the tongue,
which, to my opinion, are due to my blue blood. I have a double coat,
and am happy in a cooler weather.
My work consists in beaming Love through my
gentle presence in Tana's private and group sessions, soothing clients
and students during emotional releases, and encouraging people to
allow emotions to move through. I offer pre- and post- session hugs to
both children and adults, and I agree to be fed healthy cookies by the
healing practice and home guests. If you and I have already worked
together, you know by now that after the integration part of the
private session, I enter the treatment room to check on you.
My greatest desire is to evolve, just like you,
and to expand to all that I can be. I seek to live a happy, meaningful
life, with work and play, good treats and lots of love. I hope that
one day my healing work will be recognized and I will be allowed
everywhere where other dogs with jobs, such as seeing and hearing
dogs, are allowed. In my perfect world, all parks are dog-friendly,
off-leash places, and any humans with phobias of dogs are gently
encouraged to heal their fears and make friends with me and my peers.
Here's to our ancestral friendship, with love and
