Love4Sadie and Havanesefan,
Thank you so much for both of your replies to me.
My sincere apologies for responding to you both after so much time. I have moved out of the United States in late November, and I am so busy trying to get settled/adjusting to living in Asia; it is a complicated process to settle into a new different society and culture.
Yes, I felt always a extremely strong, loving connection to Jessie for a great number of years. Ever since rescuing her from a shelter in 2003/2004, when her owners just pushed her out of their car door in front of the Humane Society building and drove away as fast as they could. They didn't have the courage/maturity/dignity to bring her inside and help her get started with the very scary process of getting/finding/hoping for a new home. She was just a 1 year old pup then.
Yes, the "communication" from her, is just incredibly surreal to me. Yes, I believe it was a sign; had to be a sign; was much more than just a sign, it was a message to me, loud and clear.
For her to die on the very day I arrived here, after all the years of waiting, is impossible for me to accept or understand as just a coincidence.
Jessie had a very long and wonderful life after she was rescued by my wife and I. I feel nothing but wonderful about this fact. She was a lucky, fortunate dog in this respect. Much luckier than most by far.
Yes, I don't believe Jessie could have been clearer. And yes, I can believe you that Jessie with 1 foot out the door and 1 foot still in the door, was communicating with her sister Tasha at the Rainbow's Bridge ... with both of them trying to conspire and communicate with me and give me a HUGE sign.
As you said, putting words into Jessie's and Tasha's mouths:"Hold on, he is almost there, he needs a sign from us..."
And you said: "Your girls pulled off a miracle for you. Enjoy this new chapter in your life. Jessie and Tasha are definitely watching out for you."
I do believe you are absolutely right. They did pull off a miracle, the 2 of them. They DID communicate with me this way. To send me a HUGE HUGE HUGE sign. On the VERY day I arrived at my dream retirement destination after waiting, for years, for both of them, to be OK, to have their very important needs met 1st.
Tasha's Dad and Jessie's Dad (I loved them both so damn much
I don't know what my name is!)
