I am so sorry for the loss of your pet and the hurt you feel. But you didn't lose her. She's right there with you and ever as loving as when she
was with you in this life. The silly notion that dogs do not have souls is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!! Another wonderful feat of an organized religion -
getting people to believe they'll never see their pets again. That's really messed up and dead wrong! You can look in their eyes and see that
they have a soul. They can love. How can something that is given the ability to love not have a soul? I believe all creatures have souls.
I found my dog "Buddy" in a park many years ago also when he was 2. The owner gave him to me because he couldn't take care of him. We had many
wonderful years together and he was my very best friend. I had to put him down because he had an incurable disease. The vet put his body in a bag
and I took 'it' home to lay up a ways over the wooded hills in an open space for the circle of life to let the other animals and birds have their
food. As soon as I got in my car I heard his tail beat against the seat a few times. Unmistakeable sound. We all know what that sounds like. My
husband came home later that afternoon knowing that I had taken him to the vet to be passed on. My husband on occasion has seen people who have
passed on and so have I. He came into the bedroom breaking up with tears in his eyes. He said, "I saw Buddy" and we cried holding each other that
we could no longer touch him or see him but that he was still with us. No doubt I believed him. He said he was walking up the hill towards the house
and looked up and there he was by the house wagging his tail so hard his body was wagging with him - "Dad's home!!" He saw him for just a few
fleeting seconds and then Buddy had dissappeared. The next day I spoke with my daughter who loved Buddy very much. She said, "Mom, I heard his tail
beating against the wall last night. Only about four times but it was the sound of a dog's tail beating against the wall. I know it was Buddy."
My husband also out of the blue saw his cat, "Dawg" sitting on him one evening. He sat there and then jumped off and ran down the hall. We had to
put "Dawg" down from mouth cancer. That evening as we were laying in bed we both felt him walking around on the pillows and the bed and did so
several nights after that. We moved back to Colorado a year later and still sometimes, I feel the pillow dipping and there's nothing there. But....
it could still be one or both of my cats that got eaten by coyotes several years ago. Or, Dawg could have followed us. Maybe not on the plane - who
knows? But in the spirit world I think navigation must be a little different.
When I moved to Colorado in my 20's I had to leave my cat, Leo, behind. I loved him and hated to leave him but I had no other choice. A few months
later I was laying in my bed and all of a sudden it felt like Leo was right inside my chest. I could feel the essence of him and the love from him.
It lasted maybe 20 minutes? He was right there and it made me cry because he was WAS right there with me. About a week later, I got a call from the
man and daughter who I left him with. Leo had dissappeared about a week before and did not return home. He was an outside cat but knew his home - he
was not a runner nor the kind of cat that would take off for days. I truly believe that he died somehow and found my spirit on that invisible plane
we all share but can't see. Same thing happened with one of my cats that got eaten by a coyote - I felt Dusty in my heart soo, so strong. And even
after we had to put "Dawg" down, that night at dinner we could just feel him, but we could feel his happiness and relief of no more pain.
So, don't worry. There are no favorites. If our pets had made themself known, your sweet dog IS with you also. Some people are gifted with their
presence in one way or another and others just aren't. I don't know why. She may run around here and there but she will always come back. She
probably rests with you while you sleep and jumps in the car with you and follows you around the grocery store. She's there. Don't worry. And
I'm quite sure you will see her again. There is love, and would love and it's Creator really allow an eternal separate of two spirits who loved
Still, to this day, when I'm alone, sometimes I say "Hi Bud!" or call his name when I'm walking. Just to let him know that I know he's there and
I haven't forgotten. Maybe sometimes he's off running around but maybe sometimes he's with me when I acknowledge his presence, even when I have no
clue. THAT'S how much I KNOW they are still around us when they pass on.
