how were/are you with the pets in your life? I have just about had a dog in my life since a baby till about last August when my wonderful dog passed away of old health issues. What i noticed is that any dog i ever had in my life really, really bonded with me. Like a child and parent bond....very very strong love. Even looking back, as a child, the dogs i had were very close, loving and good natured with me....they went nuts for me. Most likely cuz i parented them, was very patient with training and teaching them and altho i am a male, i would be like a watchful protective Mother to them. I did not see my dogs as an animal...how do i explain this?>>> i saw the dogs as a child in form of a dog(their spirit/soul...whatever you like to call it...to me, they were like a child trapped in a dog's body). A puppy to me is just a baby and anytime i saw one or owned one, i had to carry thru om my urges to pick one up and cuddle it/nuzzle it and protect .....very strong mothering instinct that i inherited thru my own mother. So strong was the bond that i somehow could read or sense what was on my pet's mind, stare at each other and read their mind, knowing what they wanted and saying it aloud to them to confirm what they want....and i would get that enthusiastic response as i could tell they were just dying to be asked (walk? hungry? park?want to jump up and sit next to me??). And when their short lives came to an end....they still visit me in my dreams. I catch myself thinking about them in some way everyday , whether a year has passed or 15 years, 40 years . I dont get too emotionally sad or upset or mourn them (i mean i do miss their affection and companionship...they really are Man's best friend) for i know in my heart that these pets were here temporary , that God had sent them to me to enjoy and i was to be their protector, their guardian, teacher ,parent and friend here on earth till time had come and God called them back. For i know we (every Man, animal, you name it..) are here in earthly form for a very brief time , our bodies expire and All our spirits return back to our Creator. So i Know that they are in the very best of hands and one day we will meet again.
