When I was around 10 years old one of our German shepherds, Axel, passed away because of a cancer that made his bones ache and make him sick. He passed away about 2 years after getting the cancer and me and my parents and sisters were devastated. He was a good dog. A champion show dog at that too. Anyway...
I was sad for a long while and missed him a lot. Then one day when I was on the couch in the game room watching a TV show when I saw a faint blur out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look and couldn't believe my eyes. There was Axel just like how he was when he passed away only he didn't seem to be in any more pain.
I just stared for a minute trying to comprehend what I was seeing. Axel tipped his head to the side as if saying "What's the matter?" I tried to pet him but my hand just went through him. When he seemed to lick my hand I felt a cold breeze on my hand. I kind of realized then and there he was real. I wasn't crazy. I was so happy I could have burst!
He sat next to me on the couch making a dent where he was sitting. He was really real. After about an hour, though, he got up off the couch and walked out the door looking back at me one last time. Then he just vanished.
Has anyone else experienced a passed on pet coming for a visit? By now I have become to curious about what I've been seeing and want to know what other people think and experienced. Since then I never really saw him again. I have a feeling he's happy where he is though. I will always miss him and never forget the last time I saw him.
