What Happens To A Beloved Dog At The Moment Of Their Death?



In checking my email I found a new comment about a post which I wrote on this site in April, 2011, “Do Pets Reincarnate And Do They Choose Their Owners?”  The writer’s dog died and he must have gone to the internet seeking solace about pets and their death. Below is his sincere comment and I will ask for dictation so that I can send him an answer as soon as possible.

Hi, I lost my beloved dog Duke today. It was extremely hard to consume. I feel very broken right now. I miss my Duke every minute. I just want to know everything is okay after their reality life here on earth. Is it? What happens if I may ask? I fear for him, I just want him to go to the right place. I love him so much. A reply would be so appreciated. thank you. I love you boy.  Anthony Cardenas

Just as I picked up my pen and notebook to write, the Holy Spirit said: “This is what We’re all about!”  Then, as I copied Anthony’s question into my notes, I was so aware that I, personally, would  have no idea as to how to answer this loving, heartfelt plea for upper understanding from this dear, bereaved man. I don’t know the answer to this question myself because, other than that one posting about animal reincarnation, I’ve never dug into the story about animals and their immediate experiences after death.

But first, Anthony, I feel connected to you just from reading your pure and loving words about Duke and the way that you feel about him. What a lucky dog he was! I imagine that he misses you, too, just as much. But let’s find out what the Holy Spirit is waiting to say just now as I write. Oh, my Holy Spirit! What can You tell Anthony about Duke now since he has passed over to Your Dimension?

“Oh My God! This is what We are all about! (He is repeating this many, many times.) We want people to ask Us things like this! It is so wonderful that Anthony looked up some information on the Web and found this chance to ask such a question because it is so clearly evident that he believes in the Upper Realm and wants the same for his beloved pet, Duke. But, since animals can’t talk about this to their humans, he has no way of knowing that Duke is just romping around, wishing that he could lick his dear master’s face once more. And he really, really, really loves this Anthony, who made him so happy while he was on Earth. Now, Duke has gone on but is not very far away from Anthony.

Listen to Me, Anthony! Wherever you go and whatever you do, your Duke is right by your side!

It’s funny that you should mention it, because most people don’t even think of animals or their pets doing much living after death. That is an advanced idea, even about humans and their souls surviving a death on Earth and waking up in the Next World. But it’s very rare for humans to even think of an animal surviving and going on, full of life and renewed youth into eternity.

But animals are always more likely to continue in that World Above because of their innate purity of being. Duke must have been WONDERFUL to have inspired such a wonderfully-deep emotion in your heart. Obviously, he helped you enormously in learning how to give and receive love, even to your fellow humans. This combination of you and your dear, dear pet goes above and beyond most of the animal/human connections and becomes Something Historical to those of Us, Up Here in the Next World.

It doesn’t always happen this way, but when it does, then that becomes a true love story which sets an example for Earth and the humans who populate this planet. Anthony & Duke! There it is! Your story would have been noticed and remarked upon, anyway, but now you have really brought it to Everyone’s attention.

You wanted to know what happens when a dear doggie like Duke passes out of his earthly life: Well, it’s very similar to when a spiritualized human crosses over. There is always a Greeting Family there to happily welcome him back. Every one of these little consciousnesses that have come into an earthly existence is greeted when they return from their travels. Their family wants to know intimate details about their physical life and all the characters in it. So, they will be full of joy to learn what a wonderful life their Dukie found when he went down into that dangerous material plane of existence.

These animals don’t come to Earth to advance themselves spiritually, since they are already well-developed along those lines. They come to help humans become spiritualized and to learn how to purely love another consciousness quite different from their own. This is not a safe assignment for so many animals; even dogs and cats, which have a much better chance of surviving well than other types of beasts of the animal kingdom, which must frequently interrelate with humans.

The love existing between you and Duke has added to the quality of the total amount of human love on Planet Earth”

(This sentence came out slowly, word by word, as if He were filled with emotion and choking it out.)

“Thank you for saying that, Linda Layli! Thank you, Anthony, for asking Me this question. I can assure you that your darling Duke is in great spirits and will be waiting for you in your Family which will be here to welcome you whenever you are privileged to return Up Here to your home. I will be there too, because now I feel very close to both of you.”


This comment was sent in response to the above message and I will attach it here. At the time, I was traveling through the South Pacific and had little time to work on this blog.

In August, I was in Sydney and Brisbane, Australia, and did manage to post three blogs here; the last one of which was a wonderful question from Anthony ([email protected]) about his dear Duke, who had just passed away. Now, Dave has just added a comment to that, which I have approved but don’t see posted yet. From Dave, [email protected]  I hope you guys can get in touch with each other.

“My heart goes out to you on your great loss. I lost my ‘Gretchen’ May 2011 and was devastated! To condense my experiences, my Gretchen is in my life daily (you can accept to believe this or not, but I receive physical signs with this every day), and she is guiding me to becoming an animal communicator to help people like yourself. I’m not sure of your beliefs, but I can atest that Duke is in a good place and watching over you. Pay close attention to little (odd) things, as he might be trying to let you know he is okay. Peace be to you, and I hope I can bring a little comfort to you knowing that Duke is in a wonderful place.”
