So, sorry to hear this RegardesPlutero.

Youre both in my thoughts and prayers.

I just had a scare with my dog Tues. night. She was on the brink of death and spent a night in the animal ER. She's still shakey but seems to be getting better.

Anyway, I know what you are going through. Sending love and white light both your ways.

One think I did was visualize my dog in bright white healing light and I do think it helped or at least soothed her to some extent.

Hoping for the best for him.

RegardesP,

From what I have been uncovering/reading, they do actually "hear" you.

I didnt want to sound like a complete weirdo, so I didnt write about it...but I did somehting similar to you where I "talked" to my dog and tried to explain to her what's going on...


The language of the heart does not need translation...

it is interpreted by every living thing, in the way it was sent, or they can interpret it somehow - in their own language - because heart communication over-rides all...

I was also worried my dog wouldnt know what I was saying,... but I took faith in the fact that he did.... I'd read alot on how they do. Too much to explain here, but just wanted to say that I'm sure your loving thoughts were somehow translated to him.

and I bet it meant the WORLD to the little guy.

Even if he passes, or it's his time to go, i'm sure he will never forget the love you communicated and sent to him today and will take it with him when he goes.

Bless you both.

I had a talk with him, though. I told him how much he is loved and why he might be put down--I know he's a dog and can't process it, but I wanted to say goodbye and I wanted to explain things to him. It reminded me a lot of the conversation that I had with my grandmother right before she passed--we just were laying around talking about all of the important things. I'm grateful to have a chance to say goodbye to him.

You might not know, for a long time, how much that meant to him, or how much it helped him.

I had a similar situation with my dad when he passed.

They say the hearing sense, is the last thing to go on a person. Maybe that holds true for animals too. It has to help to hear a loving and soothing voice... as you make your journey over. We can only hope so.

I think it was very kind and loving, what you did for your dog. Still holding out hope that he starts to feel better...

I thought I responded earlier.

I know it's awful - the time does fly by, and it never feels like enough. You always feel like you could have done more, even if that isn't the case. At least, I do. I'd wondered where you were, and I'm so sorry to hear that you might be losing your friend.

Earlier on, my mother pointed out that since Walt hadn't been feeling so well, he'd been sticking like glue to me (when he would normally be going to see her at times). As she was saying this, he was moving closer to her, obviously enjoying her presence, and the next thing I knew, he'd followed her downstairs and was snuggled up in the chair with her when I eventually went down there. I think they definitely know what we say.

I remember Liz, when we'd had her for a year or so, in California. My dad (who is now a big softy) didn't want her in their bedroom, or on the furniture, but as soon as they went to bed - as soon as their door was shut - she was on that couch. So precious. I'm sure he knows that you love him, understands what you're saying, and loves you, too. I wish I could remember the name of the book I read a lot of at B&N, the night before we had to have our last cat put to sleep last September. I'll try to find it, and post a link for you.

RegardesPlutero

I'm sending good thoughts to both of you.

I will tell you that animals can sense what you are feeling. You talking to your dog is one of the best things to do. Think how often he knew you weren't feeling well or having a bad day and he came to your side.

I have gone through a number of losses with my 'little zoo'... I was with each one talking and holding them and telling them how much I love them. I KNOW they heard me and were comforted.

I hope you and your dog will be alright whatever the outcome. ((((hug))))

I had about an hour after work to spend with him. I wanted to cheer him up and send him off happy. I told him (and I know that this is going to sound really stupid) about all of the cool dogs and celebrities that he will see in heaven--Benji, Asta, all of them can be his friends. I told him that he's going to be this really cool dog that people up there would want to know. He can see my grandmother. I told him to mind and to be good and that God would be good to him, that God loves him. I told him about all of the funny things that he did, and thanked him for everything. I just petted him and held him for awhile and then he was taken to the vet (I didn't go with the people taking him; I just couldn't handle it).

That was really beautiful RP How blessed he was to have you there in the end and throughout his life.

http://rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I'll always miss him, but I know that he died being loved so much. That's an honor that not everyone gets to have, and I'm grateful that he got to have it.
