My Dog's Visit


I got my beloved pooch when I was around seven years old. My grandparents bred and sold pure bred Pomeranians. Around the time my Grandmother got custody of me, one of her dogs just had a litter of four puppies. The only boy was a stillborn, which left three darling girls who were a handful. But I was a kid, and my "job" was to get puppies used to kids around. Since we never got a complaint, I assume I did my job well.

Eventually our ladies were 6 weeks old, which normally meant they were of age for selling sheet they had their shots and checkup. By this time I had been paired with two other dogs, one was not friendly to kids. And while she never bit me, it was clear we were not going to work. The other had a few bad habits that we couldn't break so she was moved to the kennels, which were well cared for.

So my Grandmother decided to try a fresh start. My Aunt had already picked one of these puppies. Leaving the other two for picking. My dog, now named Ferggie, sat next to me as if making up my mind for me.

Years passed and she eventually passed on due to age (14 years) and acute kidney failure. I was broken up by the loss of Ferggie and, as one would expect, I was moping around.

One night, however, my dog visited me in a dream. Her coat was healthy looking, and felt wonderful as we laid on my bed cuddling like we used to. When I woke, I almost expected to find her there. I then had a good cry and thanked her for that one last visit and a wonderful "I'm fine now, I love you, goodbye."

I'm not sure a dream counts as a ghostly encounter but it's a lovely story?

Thank you everyone. This was one of the best visits I remember.

The other I'm not sure would be okay to post since it deals with a Goddess, and I don't want to post if it will break the rules.:D

There's many stories on this site about pets that 'come back' for a final good-bye, or hang about for a bit to be sure their 'family' is ok. Every time, I read one, I get a little hiccough in my throat, and damp eyes. I'm happy you got to have that chance, for one last good-bye.
I believe you experienced this via a dream, because that is when we are most 'open'.

I never remember my dreams. So for Ferggie's visit to stick with me even now, makes me believe She visited me after her passing.

Donut - this isn't just a dream. That is your opinion. This, in my opinion, falls under Family/Friends Visits, which really is where I should have placed it instead of Pets/Animals.

This is a beautiful recount that reminded me of a story I read called Old Bess. It is a beautiful story that is wonderfully written.
