jafo220 Thanks for the first hand experiences. It's nice to know that I'm not crazy in hearing those sounds.

Rocky was such a stink when he was a pup. I worked the night shift. Leaving my wife to fend for him and one child on her own. There were times she told me years later and going through the things we go through with Cruz, that she was about to give Rocky away. She never really would have, but he drove her to that point many times. Then at around one year of age, he totally flip flopped into this awesome dog. I think all the adverse instances with her and Rocky were bonding moments happening, though at the time she never realized until later.

He was a funny pooch. I remember that he was never allowed on the furniture. But he would get on the couch through the day while we were at work. He knew our vehicles or something, because when we walked through the door, all the pillows would be on the floor, and he would be sitting there are laying in close proximity to the couch. You could walk over and feel the seat cushions and they would be very oddly warm. Hmmmm. He never got into trouble for it, he never hurt anything. The cat Jacob, probably talked him into it. They were buds. Like to brothers poking at each other all the time but never escalating into anything bad. Jake would walk up to or behind Rocky and nip his ears or his front paws forcing a yep from Rocky. Jake would just sit there and do it over and over. Rocky would look up to one of us with an expression of "are you just gonna sit there?". Or "can I bite back?". Once in awhile, he would pin Jake to the ground with his mouth and role his eyes up at us looking for praise, but mom would be yelling to let Jake go! and he always did. He was just putting Jake back into his place in the pack.

Now, if I let Cruz near our current cat Neko, it may be the end of the line for Neko. How times change with different situations.

Brando & Julietta's Dad Very sorry to hear about your loss of Rocky. It sure sounds like you guys enjoyed his wonderful life together. I sure can relate with how the emptiness that a missed GSD in a home feels. I have never heard sounds but I do feel a presence that feels like their there. Long live your memories of Rocky. Good boy!

wolfy dog another weird one from years ago. I was lighting a candle for one of my passed dogs and told him to send me a good Collie one day. In these day that was what I was researching. Honestly, the next day an acquaintance (who didn't know anything about my preferences) emailed me and asked if I knew someone who could take in two male Rough Collies. My own passed dog had always been crazily obedient but I told him to not take things too literally as I was way not ready for that. What are the chances of such a thing?

Sri I have a friend who told me that after her dog passed, she heard sounds of him and she kept it to herself. Almost a year later her husband confessed to her that he had been hearing sounds of the dog, and they realised they were both hearing the same sounds at the same time. She said that they stopped hearing the sounds when she finally found peace with his passing away.

SunCzarina Good friend of mine lost her heart dog to cancer. For months she said she could hear him barking outside.

I lost a dear girl about a year later. From the great beyond, Morgan sent me a puppy to cuddle. Random chance meeting adorable gold sable pup, Morgan was a gold sable.

About 2 months later, when I was ready to think about opening my heart, breeder friend announced her V litter had been bred. I had always joked that Morgan was named after a war goddess, I'd never do that again, the next bitch would be Venus after the goddess of love. Kismet on the V litter.

Sometimes Venus is so much like Morgan I swear she's the same dog come back to me. Little things, her favorite spots, how she plays, how Venus is wise beyond her age. Past life experiences in humans, the concious mind doens't know who we were in the last life.

sehrgutcsg Personally, I'm not really certain about what you're talking about however, my wife will be sitting at her desk and she will feel something brush up against her leg and she will look down and there's nothing there - the little white dog name Spanky seems to cruise around the house at times and she does feel his her presents as unusual as it is for me to admit, I think my wife is right. Spuds, if you're out there - we can see you playing hide and seek, and we remember that you ate all of the bark out of the planter at the apartment that you lived in -- quite a feat..

readaboutdogs I rarely have dreamed of my boys. Not too long ago I had a glimpse of them in a dream heading toward the back door, like I was following behind them. I awoke with the intent of getting up and letting them out. The morning after Cody died I was so upset laying there, and then like a sparkle in my mind I heard a voice say very clearly " it's ok". When I had to board Clipper (Cody's brother) to go see my new grandson, when we returned and had picked up Clipper & Hooch, I was so glad to have Clipper home safe ( he was 12 years old) we heard a noise in the kitchen and I just felt Cody was going to come out and join the reunion! I believe they come to us! I wish I could see them in my dreams more! Usually just a glimpse, like the profile of pointed ears, shifting the way they would, something like that. I've heard toenails when the house was still and the other dogs laying still where I could see them. I won't want to move either, I'd hate to leave their yard and house behind!

Ellimaybel I haven't had to make this difficult step in my life yet and I dread the day when any of my animals reach that point. I have watched my mom do it over and over again throughout the years and I don't know what's worse for her. The actual goodbye or the last few weeks when they are bouncing from good to bad and having to know the exact right time to do it. She always tried to give them the longest life possible without prolonging the suffering and I feel she's a much stronger woman than I will be when the time comes. Also, I should not read threads like this when I'm in a hyper emotional state. Every single post made me cry.
