    Re: For animal lovers

    Yeah, I've got nothing but time to read these days.
    They made me look at dogs in a totally different way. Dogs have always been my favorite kind of people,but even more so now.
    This sounds crazy but after reading them, I looked Kaylee in the eye and asked if she thinks about stuff the way the dog in the books did and I swear she winked at me!

    And I have grown to believe that my current dog embodies some of her predecessor. She alerts to her "big sisters's" name and has a couple of similar traits even though they are different breeds and size. My dog is just sweetness personified ... or would that be "caninified"?
    I wish I could package the joy she brings me and share it.

    Any time a dog I don't know approaches me in the future, I'll definitely look at it a little differently now!
    Great books. I can never thank you enough for the recommendation.

    I haven't read those books but I looked at some of the reviews on Amazon. The worst ratings were folks who were annoyed at the fantasy of reincarnation. I know from my cats that it's very real, that we go through many lifetimes as any species and either sex. Most of the lives I know about my prior cat, she was human and almost always female. Our pets can teach us a lot about spirituality if we'll let them. I don't know if any of my pets have repeated within my present lifetime, but souls often travel together through time (not always amicably) so I'm less concerned whether we'll meet again.

    Do read the books or at least the first one. You will enjoy it maybe a tad more if you have or have had a pet dog. I would guess there are similarly plotted books about cats ... but if not ... write one!

    But they're not really "cats" or "dogs". They're souls that just happened to come back as a particular lifeform. Although from the communication reports my cats do see their present life from a cat filter. But not entirely. I guess that's how they can be wiser and more spiritually advanced than I am. It's humbling. ;^)
