Hello and welcome to another month of Furry Words! For August I’m going to share a fascinating reading that just happened but first I want to share with you my personal grief that felt like it would never end. I’m used to being the one who helps you process grief when you lose a loved one, but for the past two months the tables have turned. I lost an aunt, a friend to suicide, a beloved family friend, a massive figure in my partner’s world and finally, my sweet kitty Miss Maple. I know that they’re all at peace and that it was their time, but man I’ve gone through a lot of tissues! I’m feeling like my head is once again above water and my heart is healing. I definitely was reminded that when I’m delivering messages, I need to be mindful of how sad and depleted we can feel after so much loss and that I’m also grateful to help you find peace and healing through psychic insight. Here’s to joy in the days ahead!
I did a reading a few weeks ago for a woman whose dog was pregnant. She was referred to me by a client I’ve had for years, and she wanted to know if the dog had any requests prior to being a mama and how she could best support her. Well, the dog point blank said she did NOT want to have puppies. She said that she’d need a C-section and she’d be fine, but that the owner may want to put the vet on standby. Two days ago, I got a message from the friend who referred me, and she said that there were only two puppies born via C-section and they both passed within twelve hours. The owner was devastated and was blaming herself for their passing.
I scheduled her for a fifteen-minute session to help her understand what had happened and to check in with mama dog. The first thing I heard was that the puppies had heart valve defects that prevented viability. I’m not a veterinarian and don’t offer medical advice, but that was what they relayed from spirit. I could feel them trying to get enough oxygen, but the valve kind of fluttered and breathing was difficult until it stopped. I saw them gasping, and she said that was exactly what happened. When she asked if the mom willed them to die, the answer was no, but she was relieved she didn’t have to raise them. She asked to never have to do that again and said that they didn’t need to spay her and promised she wouldn’t need an emergency spay for an infection. The owner was relieved because they both enjoyed the show ring and that would have ended her career. It was the first attempted litter, and she was clearly not going to try for another.
Then the dog said although she didn’t want “real” babies, she’d love two little stuffed animals to call her kids. We were both shocked by this! I saw her nesting with them, carrying them around oh so delicately and showing them off to guests. The owner said that that morning she went upstairs to find the dog nesting on the bed, and she’d never seen her do that before! When I asked her why the puppies came to life if they didn’t plan on surviving to adulthood, their answer was loving and gentle. They said that the owner was so full of love that they knew in the hours they existed they’d be filled with more love than some souls find in a lifetime. She cried saying that she had loved them, held them, kissed them, and was grieving them. Her guilt was all- consuming, but they assured her they got exactly what they needed in their short time here.
Not all the readings I do contain easy messages to relay. I may read a fun bouncy puppy in one call and then shift to a person who has committed suicide in the next. I can assure you they all find peace on the other side, but my heart goes out to all of you who are in the weeds with grief. I completely understand and wish you healing and reassurance that this heartache will lessen with time.
