Do you dream about your dogs at the rainbow bridge?

I am not sure if this is the right thread but OK.

I had a dream where my deceased (1 year ago) heart dog came into the room, wearing a blanket. It was so realistic. I told him,"But you are dead, right? And here you are." He was a sight and coursing hound and had been well muscled until old age set in. I petted his thigh muscles (like I always did when he was still with us). Then he turned around and marked the wall extremely high. Then he vanished into the after life or wherever he is.
I consider it a visit from one of the best dogs I have ever known (had him for 14 years) and left his mark for WD, the new male dog in the house. It was like his message to WD, "It's OK that you are here now, but remember that I pee higher than you."
Dreams like these are beautiful but though; it brings everything about losing them back. I will cherish it for a long time.

I pray for a dream of Daisy. I still hear her paws in the hall at night and when Lucky and I are out playing fetch I sometimes swear she watching from her old post on the corner of our deck. I think your right it's them saying its ok to move on. I also think that Lucky who recently got into some garbage for the first time had his sis,Daisy whispering in his ear.

No, not after deceased but prior, a premonition. This happened to 3 of my cats. One of them very touching, our old Siamese had kidney issues, we knew he was dying. In the dream he talked to me and said, "Mommy I'm scared, mommy I'm cold, then I held him and he deflated. Then we got together one more time in the dream - we were sitting on the most beautiful, warm beach, watching the most beautiful sunset I'd ever seen.

What a nice gift you had in dream form.

I did dream of my gsd of 12 years and I thought I was awake and looked over and she was laying where she always slept at night, it seemed so real started talking to her and she faded away and then I must of really woke up but I felt a little less sad after this.

Not anymore. It used to either make or break my day when I did. Getting Scarlett, and her being so attached to me makes me less likely to have dreams about Paige, but I still miss her all the time. We have her pictures around our house and I do think back on how much we loved her. I know someday, we will see her again.

I will see or hear my very first dog, Sebastian, in dreams on a regular basis. Even if it's just a glance and he's gone, I still see him. It makes my day. My favorite dream happened right after he died. He was sitting on my bed and he was chewing a bone. He was young and healthy. He then jumped off my bed and started flying around my room before he barked and flew away.

There are things that Finn does that I swear that 'Bastian had to be goading him on...

RIP Sebastian, Baby, Cheyenne, Baxter. Gone but never forgotten.

I dream often of our dog that died when I was in 3rd grade. He spent alot of time outside, and never really wanted to be in the house. He was very gentle and kind. Other dogs my parents had that I spent more time with I don't dream of them...but do my dads hunting dog.

I wish I could, I had to put down my friend Amigo a few weeks ago due to cancer. Totally unexpected, when I go to sleep I always hope that I dream of him and that he tells me he's happy. I miss him so much it hurts.
