Yesterday afternoon when Carol and I returned home from the Vet's office, I sat down at the puter and began typing the RIP post about Cappy. It took me nearly 30 minutes because of changes I wanted to make and typos that had to be corrected ... most of which were likely due to blurred vision as I was typing.
Now I want you to know in advance that I am not a superstitious individual. Neither am I dedicated to a belief in the supernatural, ghosts, etc. However, AS GOD IS MY WITNESS, I want to share an experience with you that left me rattled.
Just after I attached the last photobucket link to an image of Cappy in that RIP post and hit submit ... it suddenly became very dark outside and a strong rush of wind came roaring by the house. I opened the window shutters next to the desk to look out and there was a single dark cloud passing directly overhead. The almost furious wind came through in that short blast and lasted no more than 10-15 seconds, and then it completely subsided.
I'm sure that there are any number of logical explanations for that phenomena. However, I'd like to believe that was Cappy's spirit doing a final pass over to say his goodbyes to Remi and Rusty and Grammy. They didn't go with us yesterday and I suspect Cappy needed to "see them" one last time.
I will never, in all my remaining days, forget that experience.
We both know what happened in those moments, Jim. Yes... I believe.

I believe it was him. =)
The bond is that strong.
Me too. Special when they visit.
I believe that they are with us long after the last breath is taken. I am one without great conviction to the supernatural, but there are somethings that I will never be able to explain relative to animals I have had for their lives on earth and observations I experience after their passing. The presence of the dog I grew up with finds its way into my head to this day. I have little doubt that when I pass, before or after HK, she will be with me at that moment.

Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
Without a doubt Jim. The day Jordan was cremated (unbeknownst to me which day at the time). I was very sad and asked her to send me a sign she was okay. That morning on the drive to work, I saw a white egret at a pond. We don't have white egrets in our neck of the woods. I knew it was from her.

I've been visited by Kayla and a dog from my childhood, so yes I believe.
So, do you come here often?
