Why did our dog, Elsie, run away?

Dear Louis and Sonya,

I have a question about our dog Elsie who passed on last year.

She was a rescue, and she ran away just hours after we got her home.  She was gone for a month. We eventually tracked her down, and we had her home for 5 months before she escaped again.  Sadly, she was hit by a car after 2 weeks on the run.

We’d like to know why she was so ready to run away. Was it us? Was she just not into being someone’s pet? She seemed much happier when we took her to a relative’s house in a rural area and suspect she just didn’t like “city life.”

If you have any insights for us, we’d love to hear.  We think about Elsie often and have a hard time going near where she was killed.  We even think she sends lost dogs our way for us to help them get home.

 Dearest Molly,

Elsie wants you to know that the time she was with you on this earth, she was very happy.  She did have a bit of wanderlust, and she liked to get out there on her own and explore.  Sadly, this came to a sad ending for everyone.

She had wonderful times when she was with you.  She didn’t know a dog could be so happy until she came to you!  She says, “My dad played like a dog and mom kissed me on the head frequently.”

She loved being with you and thanks you for the gourmet food.  She says, “I had never had such delicious food in all my life!”  

She’s so sorry she ran away, but she just went off for fun and to enjoy herself. 

I want you to know, when we all go home, we go to the beautiful, spiritual realm.  And we go home many times.  We live many lifetimes.  We meet all the souls we met in this life, past lives, and there’s just peace, love and joy. 

But what is so wonderful about being in the spirital realm, is we sill have our spiritual energy body, and we are able to move anywhere.  She constantly travels back to her wonderful human family.  She wants you both know she sleeps on the bed at night, goes in the car, and even goes to restaurants with you!  She is always with you and around you. 

When your grieving goes –  you will feel her.  She’s right there with you, and she wants you to know that.  She’s thanking you for the love she received from both of you that will stay with her forever. 

You don’t realize it, but there are no accidents in life, and it was time for her to leave.  But in your lifetime, she will reincarnate back to you. 

And she wants you to know that she does indeed send dogs your way, because you are angels on earth, and you will help any dog and do anything you can.  You will know it’s her bringing them to you.

Love to you,

Woof, Woof!
