I live in an area of Washington that is surrounded by protected natural land. Deer are frequent visitors, particularly the Columbian black-tailed deer. We see them enough that we recognize small family groups of a mom and her two children, born last year, a young two year-old male with spikes, and a majestic buck.
Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, in a peer-reviewed study, demonstrated scientifically that a dog had a psychic link with its owner.
The methodology was simple, but controlled with great rigor. Dr. Sheldrake predicted (formed a hypothesis) that Pam Smart's dog, Jaytee, would go to the window and wait for her to come home, at those times that Ms. Smart decided to come home (from a remote location).
