pets not crossing over

A year ago we had to put our family dog to sleep as he was really weak and had recurrent seizures. The vet came to the house and our dog went quiet and peacefully. I know he was ready to die, but ha stayed around for several months. I felt as if was to check on us.
My mom would wake up every night from his barking. He had this thing that he got downstairs every night and barked once at the front door, then he went back to sleep again. His bark was very loud and piercing, it would make the glasses in the cupboards ring. That sound is what woke up my mom. As she has trouble sleeping, she would sometimes hear the bark while still awake. My dad sleeps like a rock and wouldn´t hear a thing
The dog would even come to visit me in my new apartment. Once he had a message to me. I was lieing in bed and dozeing between sleep and awake in the morning, as I had no work to go to or anything else to do. Then I saw him coming in through the bedroom door and walking up to me with a "smile". Yes my dog could smile I felt very comforted and he spoke to me in my head "everyting is going to be all right"
We had a very close connection when he was alive. We communicated with sounds and gestures as well as mental pictures. He was like a person to me. I still miss him immensely.

She took along time to get over him and I am convinced she blamed his death on me.We have finnally gotten back our good relationship but it took a long time.

I don't doubt for a minute that your dog stayed around for a while. The ties we have with our animals is amazing..sometimes stronger than what we experience with people.
Your little guy is adorable. He knows how much you love him and reciprocates the feeling. I'm glad you got to spend a little more time with him.

My dogs visits made the loss easier to bear, and I think that is why he did it.
The picture is from his last christmas. He looks a little sad, but its dissapointment over the boring dogfood he had to eat. He had a little weight problem because of a prostate operation some years earlier, and no one likes to diet
