She's At It Again...A Story

My Girly Girl always seems to have something brewing.  I was quite surprised to get the following email on Saturday morning from our dear friend Pat.  She has graciously given me permission to share it.

A "story"

Two months ago, my sister and her husband adopted a 15 year old toy poodle who had been used for stud and lived most of his life in a small crate. They gave him a short time of knowing security and love before he died on Thursday. Frankie was a character and we watched him blossom from a grumpy old man to a mischievous little guy who was happy to be petted and cuddled. He will be missed. Hugely. We all fell in love

with him and are very saddened by his loss. But Frankie is not the story.

Last night, trying to sleep, I was thinking of my sister, Frankie and all of the dogs and cats that preceded him in Kate's life. I was hoping that they would meet him and teach him how to live at the Bridge. I thought of George, Gretchen, Samantha, Leiber, as I thought of each of them, I could see them in my mind's eye. Then I thought about Daisy, my sister's heart dog. But no Daisy appeared, nope. Who came into my musings? Girly Girl. She was just there. She looked beautiful, strong and calm. But even though she was very still and quiet and I saw no movement at all, there was a sense that she was just pulsing with energy! Like she was going to leap -- um, I don't know where, just leap, I guess. And she "said", "Tell Mumma." That is all.

I have spent the morning trying to figure out what sweet Girly Girl wanted, and am dismayed to have no more to tell you. Rick thinks she just wanted to let everyone know that she is whole, well and happy. I don't think that's it at all. Bottom line, GG is with you, thinking of you, loving you.

I hope this "story" does not make you feel sad. In my thoughts (or dream?!?) she was happy, her gentle little self, but with a truly awesome energy. Perhaps it makes some sense to you.


PS: I remember you telling me that GG was going to come back to you in another houndie. But that grey is already born, right? And you know who s/he is? So her message is not about that. Hmmm. A puzzle from Girly Girl to her mom on this almost Spring Saturday.

 While I try to figure out what my girl is trying to tell me, I usually don't understand immediately what the message is.  But so far it has always unfolded with a little time.

That story makes me cry but in no way makes me sad.

I think it means something more as well but I'm not exactly sure of the meaning.  Two things immediately come to mind but GG sometimes has bigger plans that I don't get to know until after they have come to fruition. The adoption of Bettina immediately comes to mind!

I was told by a communicator that GGs job these days is to help other dogs cross over.  I love to think about
Frankie the Poodle
Frankie two weeks after coming to his new home with Kate
her waiting for each dog as they open their eyes on her side.  Since you were thinking about Frankie and other dogs who have passed, perhaps her message relates to that.

Or maybe it is to comfort me.  I have a tough time in February and October (her birthday and when she left me).  It feels like its been particulalry hard this year though I can't point to why.

If she's coming back with the same ear tattoo she showed me in the dream, she has not been born yet, she'll be born in July of 2016.  I know exactly what she'll look like.

In any case, I don't doubt that she had a message for me.  There is a reason she is sending it through you and that at some point we'll learn exactly what she means.  In the meantime I'm very comforted by your story.  I believe she is with me and she sends me messages all the time now that I am open to them.  She was probably sending them from the minute she crossed but I was too blocked by pain and loss to receive them even though a message from her was what I most desperately wanted.

I'm also very sorry about Frankie's passing.  Your sister is a very special person to help him knowing that time with him would be short.  I'll be sending you and your sister positive energy.

Would you consider letting me post  this story on my blog?

Message from Girly Girl?  I believe so.  I'm sure some think I'm deluding myself but if that ultimately ends up being the case, I'm OK with that to.  I believe she has something up her sleeve and I am most interested to learn what it is!


  1. Love doesn't die when the person or pet dies. I'm glad for that.

  2. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if GG had some kind of plan up her sleeve!

  3. It may not seem like it with my tardy reading of your posts but I really enjoy the ones about GG's visits in particular. I'm looking forward to seeing what she's got up her sleeve for you in the future.
