At exactly the moment of his death at home, his two dogs started barking and howling.
Everybody mentioned it, although most people here do believe in the supernatural already, and it was seen as touching, yet quite normal.
It's in hindsight that I wonder about it.
Did those dogs see his spirit go?
I also know of a cat that was quite heroic, and alerted people to a lady who had just had a stroke.
Now if animals are so psychic, then have we lost something as humans?
I wonder what it is exactly, and how we lost it?

Interesting. Food for thought.
Twice, I had an experience of "knowing" a loved one died. In each case, I had the sense that the person wanted me to know-- so not that I am keen
to it, but that the deceased were powerful and "made" me aware. Could be it was so with the dogs.
Once, while in grave danger (drunk man with a rifle, firing at me), I was in the woods, and several horses ran toward me, away from the danger-- as if
I could make them safe, but also shielding me. By watching them, they let me know where the source of danger was at any given time, backing away,
directing their ears, and such. Several minutes passed, and the horses began to relax, but stayed near me. When they started grazing, I knew the man
was no longer near enough to frighten the horses, and so made my escape.
Lastly, I like having hound dogs, because of their superior sense of smell and hearing combined with their sense of the pack. I had two dachshunds in
my life-- each one did battle with a viper to protect me. The first one finished that battle without a scratch (I was very young) and the second-- I
finished the battle with a hoe, and the dog was not harmed.
I guess I am saying that animals have their use and their best use when with humans, and humans remain even more incredible-- even after death (and
the animals seem to know it of humans on both sides of death).
