I'm not a religious person, but I do believe.  I was reading Woman's World magazine today, and read the section about Guardian Angels.  It told stories of people asking for signs that a loved one would be o.k. and other things.  Not even out loud, I thought to myself "wouldn't it be nice to receive a sign that Chewie is o.k.?"  I read the next article, and when I turned the page, I saw the words to the next story that read "Beloved Pet".  I started to laugh and cry at the same time, as I think this is a sign that Chewie really is alright.

I truly believe that our precious angels send us signs to let us know they're o.k. and also to bring comfort and peace to our aching hearts.

I have had signs from my cat Cheeseburger, and the first was as soon as we left the hospital after he had passed. My son turned the radio on in the car and immediately the song "Free Bird" began playing. My kids said it was a sign from Cheese to let us know he's o.k. now and free from suffering.

Your Chewie sent you this sign also. He wants you to know he is ok, and strong and healthy again.

Our babies are pure love; their energy and spirit is so powerful that they will find ways to get in touch with us.

Thank you so much for sharing this - I love to hear about signs from our babies.

Your Chewie knows you love him and he will remain in your heart forever.

Hi Chas,

I do truly hope that they send us signs. It is what keeps me going, the thought of having no contact with my boy for 40 years is just too much.I am sure it is a sign from your Chewie just to say that he is ok.

Hi Chas- yes it was definitely a sign! they are everywhere all the time. sometimes they're big, sometime they're small. all you have to do is watch for them. Since my mom's passing years ago she continuously gives them. one of her routine one's is turning on the tv to a channel with static at appropriate times when we need her. this is a channel that we are unable to get to using the remote.

Yesterday morning I got one from our precious baby Daisy that we just lost on Monday. I was taking down her last flyer down by the grocery store. I left it there last night because it was so far away. Well, when I got to the stop sign right where her flyer was I hit my left turn signal- immediately the signal flashed extremely loud and rapidly! and pointed right in the direction of the flyer with Daisy's picture. My blinker has never ever done this before- and after that it didn't do it again.

Please post any more signs you receive. It's so nice to hear them and gives hope.

Happy faces, Pat (Daisy's daddy)

Oh gosh... I may have just seen another sign from Daisy. Tuesday the night after she must have gotten taken by the fox and we thought she was still lost (before finding her Wednesday)- I was by the back shed. The shed light was out. I thought this strange because I just replaced the bulb last week, and it is on a photo sensor timer. I looked at it, unscrewed it to test- the bulb was fine and apparently the photosensor unit was broke. It wouldn't light up. So i wrote a postit, and placed it on my dashboard as a reminder to go to Lowes to get a new one. in the midst of recovering Daisy I never got around to it.

So tonight, as I sit here awake and heartbroken. I look out back. The light is working again. Sometimes big signs. Sometimes small. I'll take what I can get.... I guess I can go back to bed now...

God bless, Pat

How true. We lost our beloved Dalmatian Jesse just over 3 weeks ago to a heart condition and seizures at nearly 13 years of age. I have never noticed (and I'm definitely not looking out for them) the number of dogs being walked in our street since she's passed, the pictures of dalmatians I'm seeing in various papers/magazines, articles about pet loss and the most significant one - my neighbours dog 2 doors down (who just happens to be a Dally) has not stopped giving me a "hello bark" when I walk past her gate to the bus stop since Jesse passed away. It's as if Jesse is communicating through Missy to me - and their bark is exactly the same. I get so upset when I hear it, but happy at the same time, in a way Missy is keeping Jesse's memory alive for me - because I'm not yet able to look at her pictures etc etc.

I really do believe the incredibly close bond we shared with them must somehow create such an energy that they are never really "gone".

to our babies, wherever you may be, continue to shine your light on us in whatever way possible.

Ok this is the a sign from Louie and I never put it together till about a week ago. I got the call from the vet at 8 am 3 weeks ago and he told me Louie took a turn for the worst. The vet said that the infection traveled to his bran and left him with neurological problems that he would never recover from. He was basically paralyzed, he would not get up. He was alive in his eyes and ears but he just could not move. It was June 5th and it was raining and miserable out just like how I felt traveling to this hospital knowing I had to say good bye to my love. A song came on (I listen to Christian Rock station) it was so beautiful and I was just a mess, crying and everything. I had to turn it down, it had such beautiful and powerful words and it was making me worse as beautiful as it was. I get to see Louie and of course I cannot leave him. When the nurse asked me if I want to stay while they put him to sleep, I could not wrap my selfish mind around it. I was just out of it while I was there, thinking back on it . I asked what would happen, she said they would give him a shot through his IV and he would just sleep and he would not feel anything. I asked if he would shut his eyes, and she said some do, most don’t and that they usually take a long deep breath and let it all out. By this time I was HYSTERICAL! I just could not do it (biggest mistake of my life) I told Louie I was sorry,  I apologize to him for another hour. His eyes were so there, he perked up when he seen me, but he could not move, but he was so there. I just wanted to spend as long as I could with him but all I could think of was how he might be in pain. I was getting ready to leave and he started to have a seizure or just freak out. I should have stayed but I left and I feel so crappy for it till this day! I break down in tears every time I think of it.  when I got back in my car that song came on again! I cried and tried to listen to it as I thought of my Louie passing over and if he was watching over me. Again, I did not listen to the song very well to get who sang it or anything. So early this week I started to investigate the song and I found it, I listened to it and found the lyrics. At the end of the song the last line is “time to breathe in and let everything out” I could not believe it I had already thought of Louie when I heard the song but to know the lyrics and knowing that, that was what the nurse said to me about when they die that they take a deep breathe and let it all out. Maybe it was not Louie and it was God saying he’s got him up there or just letting me know that he is fine. I don’t know what it was and I can’t explain it but it makes me feel SOOOOOO good. The song is by Sanctus Real and it is called “Whatever you’re doing” I am including the lyrics and there Myspace website link if u wanna listen to the song. They do give us signs and they are among us, they love us just as much if not more than we love them. I have more signs but I think I have shared enough for today J I Love u LOUIS!!


It's time for healing time to move on
It's time to fix what's been broken too long
Time to make right what has been wrong
It's time to find my way to where I belong
There's a wave that's crashing over me
And all I can do is surrender

Whatever You're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there's peace
It's hard to surrender to what I can't see
but I'm giving in to something Heavenly

Time for a milestone
Time to begin again
Reevaluate who I really am
Am I doing everything to follow Your will
Or just climbing aimlessly over these hills
So show me what it is You want from me
I give everything I surrender...


Time to face up
Clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I've wanted to say for so many years
Time to release all my held back tears

Whatever You're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but I believe
You're up to something bigger than me
Larger than life something Heavenly

Whatever You're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but now I can see
This *is* something bigger than me
Larger than life something Heavenly
Something Heavenly

It's time to face up
Clean this old house
Time *to* breathe in and let everything out

I believe there are signs too. My baby passed away on June 16th, and a few nights later, I had a very realistic dream, that I was watching Bella outside of the crate she was in at the vets office, while she was being treated, and she was smelling the front of it, acting very curious. The weird thing is, is that her crate was on the 2nd level, so for her to be in front of it, she would have had to be floating in air. She looked beautiful and healthy, not sick anymore. Also, when I got in my car to go to work one day, I have a towel on the seat for her to lay on when we went places. I had left her harness and leash on the seat as well, but there was this indentation of her little body in the towel, as if she was laying on it next to me, next to her leash. I pray to God that there is a heaven and that she is there, happy and healthy and being loved. When your baby is taken so young and unexpected, sometimes I doubt my faith. But, I can't anymore. I have to know that she's ok and in a better place. I hope I get more signs from her. I miss her so.

Those lyrics are just beautiful!!
Thank you for posting them. while sad, they are also very inspirational.

I am so glad all of you are receiving signs.
it gives hope and light.

Last night, Donna came to me and said we have a new Daisy 'sign'. followed with "and if this isn't a Daisy sign, I don't know what is!"

I followed her into the living room where the TV was turned on- to a static channel. Long story short- we bought this TV after my mom passed with her inheritance, and ever since she turns this TV on to a black and white static channel during key moments (xmas, bdays, when you talk about her, when you ask for a sign etc) i will also add that the channel that comes on screen is not accessible by remote or anything else. we can't get to it manually.

This time- last night- the static channel came on, but was not also static- BUT in FULL COLOR with straight horizontal lines!!! we've never seen that before. ever!!!
all I could think of was how colorful it was- just like rainbow bridge.

i left it on all night and slept beside it.

We got ANOTHER SIGN this morning!

Sadly, a possum and a bird were floating in the pool dead.
At first I was shocked as I just couldn't see how this could happen.
Especially a bird...
Then I realized that deaths comes in threes.
And these were Daisy's closest friends.
The reason she would go out at night is to hang with the possum.
And she adored watching birds.
While sad to see these two go, I realized that she asked the Lord for her friends to join her at Rainbow Bridge. Unable to resist her cute ways, he complied.
I feel better knowing she has them to play with.

hugs to all, I hope today is easier for you than yesterday... even if just a tiny bit.

Chewie's Mom:

  Yes, I think these things happen alot. They are so confirming, validating and helpful. I would be lost without these signs, frankly. It helps us humans know there' s more than meets the eye here on Planet Earth. I hope Chewie sends you more signs.

Please believe my friends..........there is no death, just a moving on into the next level.  I just saw my beautiful Sorcha today, she has been gone 7 years.  She walked right passed me in the kitchen, I saw her for a moment and heard her walk.  They are not gone, but merely out of sight...........usually.  Bless you all, hope that you have many more contacts with your babies.  Please keep believing.  Love Di xxx

I believe I had a "sign".  The day after we had to have Pepe put to sleep, I was sitting at the computer which faces a window and at that moment a really tiny bird which I am sure was on his first voyage away from the nest, sat on the window sill.  It is the first time I have ever seen this happen.  I want to believe that this little bird was bringing me a message from Pepe that he is ok.  

I want so badly to have a dream of Pepe but haven't yet.  But our youngest daughter who is an adult and hasn't lived at home for years, did have a wonderful dream of Pepe the other night and I am really happy that she did.

I think you are right. it was a sign! :)
Pepe has found a way to communicate with you through nature's voice and spirit.
it's all around us, and signs are there.

My mom even sends them through butterflies. A white one flew a circle closely around us just after she left. Ironically she was wearing a butterfly tshirt in her funeral video which friends of mine made- not knowing the story of the white butterfly. Then those white butterflies started appearing everywhere. Even- you won't believe it- in the middle of the desert!! I hadn't seen them in a while, but the other day one was all over me. i couldn't help but saying 'thanks Daisy' and 'hi, i miss you' aloud.

Funny how nature has so many 'coincidences' with us at just he right times :)

Pepe is with you, and letting you know. the bond between the two is strong and knows no barrier between here and rainbow bridge. Pepe misses you too- and will send you more of those 'hellos'. I'm certain of this.

I believe in signs.  When my cat Belle died over two years ago, after several months of nothing, on day I got into my car and I heard her distinctive "meow" -- just once.  No one else was in the car and the doors and windows were clsoed.  On her last night, I had her in the car to take her to be put to sleep.  I think she wanted to let me know it was really her and not another cat. 

After I lost Herbie this past Feb 20th, after a couple of months I smelled his "spray" -- he had not done it for several years but I sort of thought maybe with damp weather or whatever even though the smell had been gone for a couple of years.  But when I was grieving, that was his way of letting me know it was him since the others were all girls.  It went away for awhile as I seemed to be doing better.  The weather has been even hotter and damper, but no smell.  Then, these past few days I've had the grief wash all over me again and I just miss him so much.  And today, I smelled his spray.  I think it is the only thing that was distinctly Herbie and that is why it is there.  It may seem a bit gross, but it really is the one thing that I know was Herbie's only -- so I choose to believe it is him letting me know he is still with me. 

I am grieving so hard now, and in a different way than when he first died.  I miss him more as time goes on and knowing he is gone from me for the rest of my life.  I sometimes almost wonder if he and Belle were ever with me because now I only have memories and a few photographs and for so many many years, they filled up my life and my home.    And now I am so empty.

Last night we noticed the strangest thing....

to start, Daisy's favorite room- he upstairs bath, has a motion sensor light.
this light has never acted up and only comes on when someone enters the room.

well, we were by the pool and we noticed that the light turned on whenever someone opened and closed the door by the pool. i checked and re-closed the door ever so gently as to not make vibration, and the second it latched quietly the light went on again.

so then we checked the back door by the patio- same thing. the upstairs bathroom light went on when that door was opened and closed- even ever so gently.

and then we checked the front door- same thing!

i just can't imagine what's causing it.

somehow we felt that it's daisy, either going out or coming in from outside thru those doors like she always did.
and since she lived in that bathroom 24/7 somehow she is somehow connected to it.

at least we hope so. the pain of life w/o her is still so unbearable.
and so we needed that sign.

we miss you SO MUCH DAISY!!
i wish i could turn back the hands of time somehow....
