My Grandmother's Dog

 

My grandmother found a puppy, on the side of her street, about 13 years ago. She brought the poor thing into her home and loved, and took care of her. She named her Baby. We never knew what breed of dog she was, but none of us cared. She was the cutest thing. But about 2 years ago she was found to have cancer in her stomich and it spread beyond what the Vets could do about it, and it would be best to euthanize her, to stop her suffering. Afterwards I could tell my Grandmother was heart broken. So I decided to stay a couple of nights with her.

As I was sleeping on the couch I heard what sounded like something hard walking around in the hallways. It sounded just like what Baby's claws sounded like on the wooden floors. I told my Aunt Kathy (who lived with Mamma at the time) and she told me that she heard it too and both of us think its Baby checking up on us. I think it was too, because when I heard it I didn't feel afraid, just suprised. I didn't think animal spirits could come back like people spirits do. This didn't happen just once. It happened everytime I stayed at her house. Not once did I feel afraid. Mamma said she never heard it, but belieives it to be possible.

But my Grandmother said that the house has always had a little something going on like creaks and sounds. But she belives it to be true because Baby loved eveyone. She was a sweet dog and I dedicate this story about her life and her death to her. I loved her so much, I cried for weeks. But with the help of her and my family, I have finally accepted that she is probably in heaven or where ever we go. Because the last time (two weeks ago) that I stayed with my Mamma's house I didn't hear any little noises, and neither did anyone else. So if it was Baby we heard, she seems to be satisfied that we are okay and she can move on.

I thank you for reading my story. I hope it warms your heart and that you believe it to. I will be typing another story soon so look out for it!

My dog died a long time ago almost a year ago. But I still cry about her. When I cry I can feel What feels like fur on my arms.
I'm so glad they can come back! 😁

thank you for sharing this story! It actually has made me realize personally that when visiting my husband's parents' house that sometimes I hear his dog's nails clicking on the kitchen floor. She died 3 years ago this holiday season. It makes me feel like I'm not crazy for thinking that it's her... I still look up to say hello too, it's that real! Also his mom will feel like she is in her usual sleeping spot or thinks she hears her on the hard floor too. I never would have thought of it as much had I not read this!

thank you sharing such a sweet story.
Pets can and do come back to let the family know that they are ok, and will stay around too some times.
It sounds like baby wanted to make sure you all had time to get used to the idea that she had passed and was ok until she went to where ever it is we finaly go.
Loved this thanks again

Animals' spirts do come back to visit their loved ones too 😁
Loved your story jrthompson, I like every sweet story I hear/read but when it comes to pets visiting their "family" my eyes always fill with tears. That's lovely ❤

RIP Baby! I have a pet too, and I would be devastated if I lost him! I know how it is to love for an animal, and I'm so sorry for your loss! Baby is in a better place now! God bless you!

I'm sorry for your loss. It was probably Baby coming back for a visit. I would also like to give thanks to your grandmother for taking in a stray; not everyone has the heart to take one in. Bless her heart. Loved the story. Going to favourites!

Very nice story. Ugh Generalchaos... I received a sympathy card from my Humane Society when I had to put down my cat and they printed out and included that Rainbow Bridge poem. Talk about making a person cry more! 😭 I can't even think about it, I'll cry here at work.

Thank you for sharing your story - it's very sweet.

There's a short bit of prose called "The Rainbow Bridge" that you might like (it's a bit of a tear-jerker).
