2010: Sugar and Spice
As many of you know, my beloved Pomeranians passed away last year. Spice went first, in July, and Sugar followed in late November. In January, these sweet creatures would have been fourteen years old. We were blessed by their unconditional love for many happy years. To say that my husband and I miss these dogs is an understatement but time does truly heal the wound.
We both had reached a certain peacefulness about our loss and didn’t feel the choking tears of bereavement as we had before. Now, we could talk about their quirky personalities with great love.
My husband has a habit of sneezing because of the pepper he places on his food each night. Spice used to wake up from a dead sleep and stare at him intently. Sometimes she barked as if to ask if he was all right. Not to be outdone by her sister, Sugar followed me to my creative room where she snoozed as I wrote. They both found ways to remind us of their love and devotion.
Spice loved the snow
Last night, I heard Spice bark, just as she had many nights when she wanted to get out of her crate. The sound jolted me awake. I’ve always said that I’m clairaudient hearing things more than seeing things. I went back to sleep, thinking I was hearing things.
I came downstairs this morning and while pouring a cup of coffee casually asked my husband, “Did you hear Spice bark last night?”
His eyes grew big and he nodded his head. He had heard her bark, also. In fact, he said he wasn’t going to say anything to me because he didn’t want me to get upset.
I was stunned. I’ve read that our beloved animal pets are linked to us in the beyond just as they had been in life. The fact that we both heard Spice bark, well, I have no answers there. We considered the possibility that her bark was a warning of some sort. As protective as that dog was of us in life, I see no reason why she wouldn’t still be looking out for us.
I meditate regularly now and the possibility is that I’ve opened the lines of communication and have become more receptive to messages from beyond. My husband is more visually psychic that I am so it was interesting that he heard Spice’s bark. After she first passed, he’d seen her snoozing under the curtains near his chair. She was there one second and gone the next.

I do know one thing. I have little fear of the unknown. Spice is taking care of Sugar in the collective just as she did here on earth, with us. Her message could have been only to let us know that the sisters are together and looking after us from above. What a comforting thought. ❤
Types of Signs and Messages that Animals Send
Pay attention after you pray for God’s help hearing from an animal in heaven. You may notice a sign for a message like any of these that animals may send to humans from the afterlife:
Telepathic messages of simple thoughts or feelings
Scents that remind you of the animal
Physical touch (such as feeling an animal jump up on a bed or sofa)
Sounds (like hearing an animal’s voice barking, meowing, etc.)
Dream messages (in which an animal usually appears visually)
Objects related to an animal’s earthly life moving (such as a pet’s collar inexplicably showing up somewhere you’ll notice it)
Written Messages (like reading an animal’s name right after thinking about that animal)
Apparitions in visions (these are rare because they require lots of spiritual energy, but they do sometimes happen)
