If Boston Terrier has come across your path;

You are reminded that in order to be kind to others, you must work on exercising greater compassion on yourself. You may have spent your entire life trying to make others happy, to alleviate their pain or to share your resources with the needy. However, once in a while, it pays to pause and ask yourself if you have somehow your physical, mental or psychological health. Be kind to yourself in small ways. Treat yourself to a relaxing vacation, try a little yoga or meditation to ease your stress, and don’t hesitate to indulge in your favorite activity, whether this be reading, exercising or simply walking in a natural setting. In time, you will see that when you feel calm and fulfilled, your motivation and ability to share yourself with others grows exponentially.

Additionally, you may need to trust yourself more; go with your intuition when you encounter new people and situations. You should not be afraid to choose the journey you instinctively know is right. When you are true to yourself, it is easier to have no regrets. It also eliminates the need to blame others when the results are not as you would have liked.

If Boston Terrier is your Animal Totem;

You are very sociable and feel a deep longing when you are separated from your loved ones. You would rather do something mundane with friends and family, than travel the world in search of adventure, alone. You tend to be most comfortable at home, though you are also very active and need to get your heart racing to calm down your nerves. You are playful and childlike at heart, though you are also deeply loyal and sensitive to the suffering of others. This makes you a good friend and loyal family member whom others tend to love and cherish deeply.

If Boston Terrier has come into your dreams;

To dream of a Boston Terrier is an omen for being more daring and open to new people and experiences. One should never create a ‘closed’ list of loved ones. Surprises are always around the corner and the best come in the form of new friends. A Boston Terrier is deeply loyal to its owner but is also happy to greet strangers, especially to those who share an interest in them. Their trusting attitude is one you can learn and benefit greatly from, in both the practical and spiritual sense. Expanding one’s social circle opens many new doors—perhaps to a new job, social circle or hobby. It also enables you to accept help when needed, and to have someone to lean on for support, or to listen to you in times of strife, or to help you with day-to-day tasks. Being with others also enables you to share laughter, which is often the best medicine.

  • The Boston Terrier comes at the end of this dream, so bear with me. Last night I was visited in a dream. I was standing in my home looking out the sliding doors at the rear of the house and saw a bunch of homeless people standing around a campfire beneath a highway overpass near the backyard. My home was an amalgamation of all the houses Judy and I have lived in for the past thirty plus years, but it’s definitely home. I’m the only one inside the house with the exception of my two dogs, Bri and Flynn. Suddenly, outside to the left is a crowd of people, very mean and ugly, beating a large white wolf. The white wolf isn’t fighting back, it’s wounded pretty badly. I open the sliding doors and yell at the crowd and they stop to look at me. The white wolf quickly limps his way to me and enters the home. Bri and Flynn start licking it’s wounds, and it looks at me with huge blue eyes. I reach above the refrigerator and pull out the milk bones. I toss one to Bri and Flynn, and then toss one to the white wolf. It eats it quickly, and gives me that canine look that says…”more.” So, I toss them a few more. By the time the white wolf is finished, he’s healed. It moves back to the sliding door and wants out. I open them and he steps out to be greeted by a black and white Boston Terrier pup. They nose each other, and then run past the homeless people beneath the underpass and disappear.

    • David, your dream could also belong on the wolf page. The character trait that is shared by the white wolf and the Boston Terrier is compassion. It is very good that you rescued the white wolf and fed it. The white wolf represents valor, hope, courage, compassion. The white wolf is your own intrinsic goodness. When you looked into its huge blue eyes, (blue is the spiritual realm) you were looking deep into your soul. Feed it often. Protect what is precious.

  • Boston Terrier came to me in my meditation this morning! Kind of random, but I’m being initiated as a shaman so I’ve been visited by many of the animals. The energy I got was very loving, and reassuring- I did feel kind of a “treat yourself” vibe. This post was so accurate, thanks again. 🙂

  • wow, this actually sums me up quite accurately,and I did the random one, and although none of these have crossed my physical path,or dream path it sums me up to a tee,i haven’t read the dream because i have not dreamt about these…. Thankyou spirit guide
    Blessings and love for you
