First, let me begin by saying that ghost stories have always intrigued me but, I have always been skeptical. Until recently. I lost my 7 year old Shih-tzu/Dauschand mix Maggie Mae on 10/6/10. (She would have been 8yrs on 11/3/10) our UPS driver ran her over, accidentally. Her ashes are in my bedroom.
Shortly after her passing, I was upstairs making my bed & I could have sworn I caught a glimpse of her back and tail going around the corner into the hall towards my son's room. I ran and looked and saw nothing. I figured it was all in my head due to me thinking of her so much and crying.
Then my 13 year old daughter said to me "Mom, don't think I am crazy but when I was brushing my teeth I could have swore I felt something brushing my leg and when I looked down I swear I seen Mag's tail going out through the doorway". My heart skipped a beat. I didn't feel scared at all. I actually felt relieved that she was possibly still here in the house with us. (Please understand that my daughter is the BIGGEST chicken and was not afraid of this experience-she couldn't believe her own reaction to it). Since then I feel her presence.
We have hardwood floors through out our home. I hear clicking of toenails often. I have a choodle-Bella and a shih-tzu-Tilly and an all four-declawed house tabby cat named Peanut. I hear this when the other two girls are sleeping in bed. I will hear it downstairs when I am upstairs, etc. Just yesterday, I left the other two girls out to potty and I was online. For at least five minutes I could hear clicking toenails upstairs. I just sat & listened. It sounded like someone running about playing, not constant prancing between the rooms.
I went up & only saw my declawed cat Peanut looking at me like "what's up?" I just smiled and then tears came streaming down my face, in my heart I knew it was her. I know that my Maggie is just letting her Mama know that she is still here watching over us all. I hope she never goes, unless of course that is better for her. I love and miss her tremendously and I always will.
I am so glad that after my experience yesterday that I came looking for answers online & found this site. The stories from others let's me know that what my daughter and I have experienced is real.
