TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - One Burley couple attended the Magic Valley Pet Fest Saturday for one reason: the pet psychic.
Flying in from Michigan, Lorrie the Pet Psychic became a hit at the pet fest and the Hopkins did not leave disappointed.
"She's really informative," observed Steve Hopkins. "She's spot on on every thing she said."
Reading pets for the last two decades as a third generation psychic, Lorrie told me she talks to pets like she would normal people.
"It depends how they're going to communicate with me," Lorrie explained. "I'll hear them or they'll show me pictures or however they're gonna communicate. They're not all the same. If a dog is hurting, they can show me where they're hurting or not feeling good, they'll show me or let me feel that."
Take the Hopkin’s seven year old pug, Rambo, for example.
"[She told them] he's got rear leg problems," Steve said.
"We kinda could see it," agreed Erica Hopkins.
But that wasn’t all that Lorrie read.
"She goes, 'You thought you're here for your dog, huh.' I'm like, 'Yeah.' She says, 'No, we're here for you because you're not taking your medicine. He's telling you that you're not taking your medicine'," recalled Steve.
Apparently Rambo has been concerned for Steve, who suffers from post traumatic stress disorder.
"When I get angry or fidgety or kind of in a bad mood, he starts shaking, comes up next to me, looks at my face, trying to calm me down and everything. I just pet him and I'm fine," Steve said.
After the session, Steve told me he will not only take his medication.
"He's gonna get his cheese sticks more often," he added. "[Lorrie] told us that he hasn't been getting his cheese sticks, so now we got to start giving him cheese sticks. It sounds funny but that's his favorite thing. I open the package and he'll come running"
