i just wanted to tell everyone about an experience i had a few years ago.....

one night i had a dream about my dad, who passed away seven years ago.
in the dream my dad was saying to me that he would look after my dog for me when she dies, and in the dream i got the feeling that he was telling me that it would be quite soon, well when i woke up i was quite upset - i had just moved into a flat of my own and my partner had broken up with me, so all i had was my dog who i loved so much.

now, my dog wasnt very old was still eating and playing and showing no signs of going anywhere.
about a week after i had the dream i was sitting in with my dog and she started acting really strange - kind of gasping for breath, this really upset me and i didnt know what to do, so i sat with her and just tried to comfort her for a while then eventually i had to call the vet - a friend took me down to the vets in their car and i sat in the back seat with her, so was laying across my lap looking up at me, i felt so close to her at that time and i knew she was leaving this world, as we got to the vets she was almost dead but the vet gave her an injection to help her on her way. i was so upset about her dieing - i have never felt as close to an animal as i did to her.

i think my dad came to me to warn me about her and to let me know that she would be looked after.
i have dreams now and again about her and my dad, and in the dreams she feels so real - its almost like im seeing her again, im convinced that when my dad visits me in a dream he brings her with him so i can see her.

after having one of these dreams i always wake up feeling like i have seen her again, and IF there is such a thing as an afterlife - i hope she will be there waiting for me as i cant wait to see her again.

;) At least you have the comfort of seeing your beloved dog and father again. They are probably trying to communicate that they love you and are around you quite often. That is a wonderful thing to have happen, and more people would love to experience it. Animals are givers of such unconditional love that we sometimes don't realise how lucky we are to have them, even for such a short time. I have a Cairn who is about 14 now, blind and deaf. I dread the day that he will leave me to cross the Rainbow Bridge, so I love him as much as I can.
If you meditate at all, Rats, try calling your father and/or dog to mind. Then mentally try to communicate your feelings to them. You might be surprised at the results...

hi spooksareus, redhead and spiritlady,

i know i that im lucky to have experienced what i did and i will always remember it.
i was feeling very depressed at the time and im glad my dad was looking out for me.

redhead, im sorry to hear about your dog being deaf and blind, im sure he appreciates all the love you give him, and when his time is called im sure he will be watching over you till you meet again.

animals DO give unconditional love and i think that it amazing that you can have such a strong bond with an animal, my dog always knew when i was feeling depressed and would come over to me, rest her head in my lap and just look up at me with her beautiful brown eyes, it seems like she was saying to me im here for you.

i am clearing out the spare room at the moment to turn into a quiet place to try and meditate.

thanks for replying, loads of hugs to you all and an extra big hug to your little dog redhead!!

Hi Ratgirl,
So sorry to hear of both losses. They all do come to us in one way or another. I get the dreams too, I have very psychic dreams, mostly major disasters around the world and nearby. But when our pets leave us, I must say they either stay with us for a while or they do come back as another pet for us to love again. My daughter gets pet spirits too. She asked me a couple of weeks ago, did Dad ever have a white dog? (he did several years before she was born, the dog passed away) I asked her why? She said she is back, I saw her walking around the house. I had felt one of our dogs was home again, I had heard the toenail footsteps just the day before and looked to see no one was there. I've had one of my cats come back and rub my chin the way he always did. Its a bit creepy, but once you feel them again, its very comforting.

Thanks. He is quite happy and content. I make sure I walk with him in the house, and dont move furniture around on him. I email with someone in England who is in a Cairn club. He told me blindness in the breed is a bit common. As long as Casey eats and enjoys being with us, I will continue to be his seeing eye person, and love him up.

That is great that your dad comes to you in dreams. My grandmother use to do that. Feels good to know they are near you.

Dreams, aer means of comunication with the other realms. On reason why dreams are selected by the dead o contact us, could be the fact that we could be more receptible while we are sleeping.
