How I Healed My Suffering Chihuahua-Nini Love

Nini Love and My Power of Healing

Did you know that my Nini Chihuahua Love is going on 25 and is the longest living dog in the world? Back in August, she was very ill and could not move, see or walk as if her soul had already left me. Her doctors advised me that it was time to put her down and out of her darkness.  But something deep within me was against doing so. I decided to take matters into my own hands, especially because of my proven track record of providing remarkable healing for others. If I could help my followers, my loved ones, and my clients heal naturally through food, good thoughts and surroundings, then there was no reason why I could not do the same for precious Nini. During that time, Nini’s fragile and weak little spirit was in and out of her body trying to decide whether to stay or pass. But I knew in my heart that she was not ready to leave her beautiful life with me. It was exactly then that I knew I had to make her better and improve her health – through my natural and delicious goddess cooking. And so, Nini no longer eats dog food! She will eat what a goddess eats!

I am a natural born healer and a fixer, and I consider myself a true modern day Venus! If there is a problem in my life, I act immediately to get it resolved and bring it to light and out of darkness. I do not enjoy letting things which do not bring me joy linger. Time does not make problems disappear. Time only makes it worse. That is why when my adorable precious Nini Love was ill, I put my tu-anh Love Power in full force and I went into crisis mode while remaining calm and loving. I call this “Goddess Grace under Pressure”. When we are giving light and healing to those in ill health, it is important that we stay silently strong for them so they do not feel any anxiety, fear, or nervousness from us.
I live a clean and healthy lifestyle already. So I knew the right fresh greens and natural foods to give Nini. I fed her the same green smoothies and salads that I made for myself daily and that included my homemade Vietnamese broths. She loved it! She ate away and within days, her eyes were clear and wide open and she started breathing more powerfully and walking with a bit more ease. What a miracle!  And on top of that, she was surrounded by lots of love and affection from her fans, a tranquil atmosphere, therapeutic aromatherapy, beautiful surroundings, and soothing music. Nini has now awakened and is in love with life again and with two young titan boyfriends keeping her company, Jack the handsome ShihTzu and Romeo, the Lover Cat!

I walk everywhere with Nini.

All of us have healing energy that we can tap into. It starts with baby steps…just one precious little chihuahua love at a time!
If you would like some tips on how to make your pet well naturally, bring them by the sanctuary and we can help!  Much love and hope your day was as calm and serene as mine…~tu-anh

She just loves being held and smother with affection.

She stays young because of silliness around her.

Let’s Eat in Old Town Alexandria

I love this wine that I drink with my dinner at Taverna Cretekou. I can finish a bottle on my own. 🙂

What are you hungry for?  Because chances are, Old Town Alexandria has something to suit your taste!

The best thing that has happened for my work is moving my business here. I love to cook but also love to experience new and different tastes. That is why I love that I have so many options to choose from when I do not feel like cooking or don’t have the time to prepare my goddess meals. Just steps and minutes from my sanctuary, there is French, there is American, there is Asian Fusion, Italian, Lebanese, Mexican, Spanish, Irish, medieval, and southern flare, and within their menu options, there is always something healthy for me.

While there are many choices, some of my regular places to eat include Taverna CretekouSociety Fair, The Pita House, Cafe Banh Mi, Asian Bistro, Le Pain Quotidien, located practically next door to my goddess boutique, and the Brabo Tasting Room at the Lorien Hotel and Spa, where I go regularly for my massages and to use their eucalyptus steam room.

Don’t forget the Old Town Farmers’ Market. Held year-round in Market Square on Saturdays, the market is the oldest in the country, and in fact originally featured produce sent by George Washington from Mount Vernon.

And if that’s not enough, Alexandria was named “Best Downtown in America” last year by Livability.com!  One thing they highlighted was the restaurant scene, saying “restaurants in Alexandria are themselves worth flying across the country to try and draw thousands of food connoisseurs from the Washington D.C. area. Residents here take full advantage of their city’s thriving food scene, eating out nearly twice as much as the average American.”  I can personally attest that statistic is correct. 🙂

I am happy and proud to be living and working in such a cute little city. Just wanted to share with you in case you would like to give Old Town Alexandria a visit. What about you? Any food suggestions for me that you would like to share?

Longest Living Sleeping Chihuahua

Nini sleeping in the car during rush hour traffic to work with me.

While Megabyte (what a name!) might be the longest-living Chihuahua officially on record, I think my beloved Nini could definitely beat that record.  Nini is my spiritual animal, and the longest, most loyal, dedicated relationship I have had in my life, second to the one with my parents.  I attribute her longevity not just to the usual things – lots of love and high-quality, clean food, not to mention that I cook real delicious human food for her as well – but also to her surroundings and lifestyle.  What are her secrets for such longevity?  Below are just a few.

  1. Comfort Luxury: If she is not sleeping with me in my comfortable bed, then she is sleeping somewhere in her own little chihuahua luxury. This is important for napping and resting (of which she does daily and almost too much), and also for her joints.  She loves nothing more than circling around and curling up in her beds, and she is just the cutest ever!
  2. Beautiful Surroundings: Just like her goddess mistress, she likes her place of rest to be clean, simple, zen, and free from clutter with pretty plants and flowers. That is why she is so calm and never stressed or anxious like other dogs I have been around.
  3. Classical Music: I love all kinds of music, but what I listen to most often at work and at home in the background is classical or beautiful New Age and World Jazz playing in the background.  And if Nini is around me, she always gets the pleasure of that, too. It keeps me calm and at peace.
  4. Aromatherapy for a sense of zen: I am a lover of all things natural and created by God and Mother Nature. I try my best to live as clean and free from chemicals and dirty polluted air as possible. I am also very sensitive to unpleasant smells. So I love using essential oils to keep my work and home smelling luxurious and heavenly while healing and giving balance to my chakras, as well as harmonizing and promoting good health for my body, mind, and spirit.  Nini is blessed to be experiencing this along with me.
  5. Children Love: You already know I love children because they are such beautiful and pure little angelic souls, and they are so uplifting to be around. Besides, children keep us young and on our toes. Nini loves affection and is surrounded by adorable sweet children daily when I take her for her walks. The little children in the park always run up and ask me if they can hold her, touch her, pet her, give her kisses and rub her soft and voluptuous body. It is as though she gets free massages daily and it is not always from me. 🙂
  6. Goddess Pet Bath Luxuries: Lastly, once a week, I give Nini a relaxing and soul awakening bath with my body luxury products made from natural flowers, herbs, and oils which are good for both humans and animals alike!

I believe any of these are things that you, too, can do to live a long and zen life.  Why not take some time out for a luxurious bath and some aromatherapy one evening?  Nini would join you if she could. 🙂

When it is cold out, Nini refuses to walk. I often have to carry her 🙂
