As a young child, people noticed Rachel had the ability to see or feel what the animals were saying and relate this information to the owners. This resulted in her being called Mrs. Dr. Dolittle. People came from all over to understand what and why their pets were acting in unusual ways. The people wanted to communicate with their 4 legged family members This ability to see, hear or feel the animals' thoughts, communicate the issues to the owners, helped everyone gain more peace, joy and less stress.
