Message of Love


Hi, Its me Poppy,
I don't want to upset anyone, but I had to tell you where I am now. It all began when I had to leave earth and home as I knew it. Mum and human Dad were so upset, so I tried to stay as long as I could, but I felt so light and was gently drawn away. I wasn't frightened, just felt a bit strange and tingly. I had no more tummy ache or pains in my legs and back any more. There was someone near me, although I couldn't see anyone, I felt them there, and it was comforting, so I closed my eyes and slept. The next feeling I was aware of, was warm sunshine on my face, I could hear birdsong, and I could smell grass and animals. I was frightened to open my eyes because it didn't smell like the home I'd just left, but a soft voice spoke to me and stroked my head, and I felt brave enough to look.
A beautiful lady sat on the grass next to me, stroking me gently, and her touch seemed to fill me with joy and the desire to play and run again.
As I lay there and looked around I seemed to be in a beautiful garden full of other animals running and playing and having fun. There were kittens chasing each other, and dogs playing tag, and others just laying in the shade of the trees. The lady stood up and I knew she wanted me to follow, we walked through many gardens, we passed rivers and streams. Ran together through meadows full of horses, woods with beautiful spotted deer, all was peaceful, and I knew there was a place for all. We finally returned to the garden where I had first woke, where there were many old friends and family gathered to greet me. There is no way I can tell you the joy and love I felt, to see them all.
There are a few humans here too, there are some old monks, who will play ball endlessly with us, they are really funny, the puppies are always chewing their robes, which just makes them giggle and smile.. There are beings of light that seem to have a human shape with a suggestion of wings somewhere, except I've never seen them fly like birds, they just seem to shimmer when they move and appear, and then there are the Goddesses. They are the beautiful ladies who watch over us all, and cradle the young ones and stroke and sing to us. I have also seen a few humans that live with their animals, there is a small boy who sleeps with the rabbits in the fields, they all snuggle up to him at night, and they look very happy.
We have a mist pool where creatures can watch their loved ones and family. I have seen animals dive into the pool, I think they visit earth, I'm not sure yet. There is one little terrier who sits all day by the pool watching his mistress, I thought at first this must be very sad, but when I sat close to him I could see his mistress too . She is a very old lady, and often picks up his picture and talks to him, he answers with a bark, and she seems to hear him and looks up. He wags his tail like crazy, all the time, so I know he is happy just watching, and I think they will be together again soon.
I'm sorry I've made my mum cry again writing this, but the Goddesses and many fellow creatures wished me to help, by affirming their message of Love, and those bonds that are never broken. I didn't understand that, Goddess words, I hope you do.
I guess this makes me a doggy Ghost Writer now.
Love to all .. Poppyxxx

Linda...
I am in tears sitting at work, but I know Poppy is at peace and no more pain. This is and was the most beautiful passage someone has ever written.

Poppy,
Its Sonia and the pugs..If you see a black and white cat named Marissa Lynn tell her I love her and have not ever replaced her in my heart. Matter of fact have not had a cat since her 21 yrs with me. And let her know I appreciate that she went out with a bang and scared my mom after I left and was safely home with the kids.
Poppy you will be greatly missed by your Mum and Dad. I can tell you are a special dog with a gentle, loving, strong soul. I in the short time of blogging with ya will miss you and your quotes. Let your mum know once in awhile you are still watching over her, she needs a Poppy hug once in awhile.

Smiles,
Sonia and the Pugs....

PS~ if ya could swing by my home once and in while and teach Margrit a few good behavior tricks will be gratefull...cuz whew she is a handful.

Poppy -- look for a big ol' Corgi named Woody. He'll show you the ropes and how to visit your mum every now and again while she sleeps to make sure she's okay!

I am just devastated. I have not been by in a while (please forgive me, we have had dog emergencies for months) and always loved catching up with Poppy. You are in out thoughts, and we are sure Poppy is enjoying a great romp...
