ESP, Your Pets, & You


ESP, Your Pets, & You


I wrote this back in 2014.



Do you communicate with your pets? Have you really tried? Have you looked deep into your pet’s eyes, and said something to them with your mind, not your voice? Have you gotten a response…maybe, a loving gaze from them, or a thought that came into your mind from them, possibly just an image or picture of something out of the blue? I believe that is your pet and you communicating on a very basic level…mind to mind, heart to heart.

Extra sensory perception – ESP…the 6th sense…information that comes to you beyond the limitations of normal hearing, seeing, touching, smelling  or tasting. It is a receiving of information, concerning the past, present, or future, originating in a second, or alternative reality.

If you have a pet, be it a dog, cat, bird, or other animal we share our homes/lives with on a daily basis, you probably talk to them a lot. We treat them as part of our family, and they learn what we are saying and what we mean, especially at meal times. Other times we scold them, and they know they’ve made some little mistake. We give them hugs, or tell them our secrets, and give them love. They give that love right back to us, uninhibited.

For me, I believe I will again see my pets that have passed away…in heaven. They will all be there to greet me when I get there. Some may disagree…and that’s fine. We all have our own set of beliefs. However, this story happened just as I’m going to write it. It is one I will never forget, and I know what I saw and felt at the time.

Quite a few years ago, my sister’s dog, a Pomeranian named Trixie, passed away. She was failing in health, as she was aged, but we did not think it was time for her to leave us, just yet. However, I suppose she thought different.  The family was all gathered around watching a tv show, that evening. I noticed that Trixie came and sat in front of me, just staring at me for the longest time.

I got the strongest feeling she was saying good-bye. I looked into her eyes, and silently said to her that I loved her, and would see her later someday. She seemed happy with that. She then moved over to each family member, in turn, doing the same thing…staring at them with a loving look. I don’t think anyone else noticed, though. I could tell she was beaming her loving thoughts to them, thanking them all for being her family all these years.

The next morning, she was gone, passed away during the night. I’m glad we got to say our final good-byes the night before. (I’m going to cry, now…and it has been so many years ago…it is still a beautiful, yet sad remembrance.)  But, I know I will see her again. I will see all my other pets that have gone on before me…someday. That’s why I never say good-bye…to pets, or to people. I’ve told them all the same…that it is not good-bye…just…”See you later.”

If we want to have a chance of communicating with our pets, we have to learn to pay attention to what they are trying to tell us, in their own way.

Back Where I Come From – Day 19


Back Where I Come From – Day 19



Thanks for hosting the challenge, Suzanne, and the interesting questions!


Question # 19

19. Did you have any pets in your childhood home? If so, please tell me about them. If you have a photograph of any of your childhood pets, please share.

My Answer:

We always had a dog. There were a lot of them over the years, but we only had one at a time, I think.

We had parakeets a time or two, also.

We had the occasional gold fish. Then, after that one kept jumping out of his bowl all the time, I got scared of fish, so we didn’t have any more in the house. That started my fish phobia.

We couldn’t have cats, as my mom was afraid of them.

I have thought about writing up a post about each pet I’ve had over the years. I’m pretty sure I remember them all (and may have a photo of most, but will have to look for them). We’ll see if I do that someday. 🙂

Here’s a photo of a couple of our (my) dogs.

Hi there! I was created by the nice lady. She calls me a purse, but I’m confused. I am a decorated wooden box, with a handle. She’s never used me as a purse, or hand bag, or anything, really. I could be a treasure box, or a jewelry box, or a memento box, but so far I’ve just sat here looking cute.

The nice lady glued all kinds of things onto me. Mostly the items are things to do with all the pets she’s had over the years. There are photos of the cats and dogs, a parakeet, and gerbils, and there is a photo of her, when she was a little girl. She called herself ‘Critter Girl’.  There is also beads, a dog tag, and chain. Inside you can look at yourself in a little round mirror. The handle beads spell out ‘Friends’, which is a nice touch, as all her pets were her friends.

Several more box/purses were made to give to her daughters and sister, with photos of memories of them on the sides and back. The nice lady has two more blank boxes she could decorate someday. 🙂
