From Boxer Mom: I had an experiance when my father in law was
passing. When the dog knew he was leaving us, the dog woudn't leave
me alone and barked constantly, looking at the sky, dragging me
to Dad's side 'till he took his last breath! These pages are awesome.
Thank you for sharing them with me.

Canine Mystery Here
A frantically barking small dog awakened 25 people in China's
southwestern Jiangsu Province, saving them from an impending flood
caused by a rupture in a Hugh underground water pipe. The Beijing
Morning Reported that one of the potential victims wok up in the
predawn hours when the dog, which had somehow gotten into his home,
began tugging his quilt off the bed toward the door. The man opened
the door as flood water gushed into the house. he was able to pick
up his pregnant wife and carry her to safety while the little dog
ran to awaken other neighbors just before their home was leveled
by the force of the water. Once the flood subsided, the dog could
not be found.
Note: The following was sent in by Jeannine whose dog Peter had
been with her since she was 16. Jeannine is now almost 30, so Peter
has been a life companion for her. Peter died a few days before
this experience. Seemingly, Jeannine was in too much grief for Peter
to get a good contact with her, so he came to her friend, who had
never been used as a "channel" before, but was apparently
open to Peter's communication for the loved ones he'd left behind.
If Jeannine's friend would like to reveal his identity, we will
post it as the author of this wonderfully written and experienced
affirmation of love and life after life. (Maybe at least the first
As I awoke from my sleep this morning, I was naive of the spiritual
journey that was before me. It began with a feeling of sadness that
consumed my physical being and awareness. It was as though I was
experiencing the dance of the demons through grieving the loss of
a loved one. There was no one that I had lost in recent history,
but this feeling was as powerful as an Indian war dance.
My chest was tight and burning as though I was having a physical
breakdown. Tears were welling up in my eyes and yet at the same
time there was no pain, physical or emotional. I went to the bathroom
and looked into the mirror. Thoughts of the past were racing through
my mind, but these were the thoughts of another physical entity
of which I had no knowledge or experience. In just a few seconds
staring into the mirror I was sure that someone or something was
present within my soul and trying to tell me something.
Memories of a past with my friend Jeannine were now the focus,
but this was a history long before I had met Jeannine. How could
I know of these past events? I had begun to relax my initial fear
of what was happening to me and began inviting a deeper search of
this phenomenon. It was now clear that Jeannine's dog Peter who
had recently departed the physical world and passed into the spiritual
world was now using me to channel his thoughts back to the physical
world with a message of love for Jeannine.
As I was now calm and welcoming this experience, I was now able
to put into words and actions these feelings that I was having.
Peter, the dog, wanted me to perform a pseudo eulogy for him in
the presence of the animals and Jeannine whom he had left behind
I am a scientist and I look at things in life through logic and
physics. I am open minded enough to realize that spiritual and meta-physical
actions and reactions occur every second of every day. This spiritual
channeling event is my first evidence of convincing proof that has
calmed my cynical mind. So the following is my interpretation of
what Peter the Dog wanted me to pass on to Jeannine, Zammer, Popper,
Josie, and Marlie. There were no actual words planted in my mind,
and the following lines are merely translated feelings given in
the order so ordered.
- To Zammer the Tuxedo Cat:
- "Goodbye old friend, we have seen and shared a lot of
- To Popper the Black Cat:
- "I like you but you are just too cocky. I picked on you
so you would be a better cat."
- To Josie the Blonde Babe:
- (Very amorously): "If I were a cat and ten years younger
we would have kittens."
- About Marlie the dog:
- There was no specific mention of Marlie, however, Peter began
working on getting Jeannine a new companion(s) to watch over
her when he left the physical world. He said he had willed a
soul to her. (Some weeks later, Marlie, the dog, came into Jeannine's
- To Jeannine:
- This was told with much love and affection. As an aside, I
was told to specifically hold Jeannine by the shoulders and
look into her eyes and say: "I have enjoyed my life with
you and I have had a good life. I learned and grew and became
a better dog by being with you. I must ask you to grieve with
me now, but then to let me go. That is the only way for each
of us to get on with our lives. Don't forget about me. But you
have to let go."
At the conclusion of my experience that day, I had a sense that
Peter was running in a field of tall wavering grass and cantaloupes.
After the last thought the feelings of his entity faded away as
quickly as they came. I was back to normal and I have not heard
from him since then.
NOTE: Jeannine reported that her friend had no way of knowing the
following: All of Peter's life, when Jeannine really wanted him
to get a message, she would put her hands on each side of his face
and look earnestly into his eyes. Also, Peter's favorite activity
was eating cantaloupes!
From LA TIMES: A chimpanzee called Ai has a facility with numbers
similar to that of a preschool child, Japanese researchers report
in today's Nature. Ai has learned to use Arabic numerals to represent
numbers, she can count from zero to nine, which she demonstrates
by touching the appropriate number on a monitor, and she can order
the numbness from zero to nine in the proper sequence. The team
from Kyoto University said Ai can also remember the correct sequence
of any five random numbers, like the average preschool child.
From LA TIMES: Argentina's state-run Telam news agency reported
that a dog in the northwest of the country saved his 4-year-old
master from a swarm of bees by flinging itself over the boy's body
in an attempt to block the attack. Kharin Toloza was playing with
his dog Chocolate near Valle Viejo when he was attacked by the insects.
The dog immediately jumped on top of the boy and stayed there until
the body was taken to a hospital after receiving only a few stings.
While Kharin survived the attack, the dog died as a result of numerous
