My new dog is just like my lab who died over a year ago–is it him?

Dear Sonya & Louis,

My lab Chaco died a little over a year ago from heart failure. He went for a walk and didn’t quite make it home. I found him laying in the pasture across the road from the house. I buried him next to his wife by the front gate so they could watch for the UPS truck together. Well, my best friend needed to find a home for a big, mixed breed dog her kids brought home last summer and I couldn’t say no. He’s a handful just like Chac and I feel this is Chac getting across the road, home. Is it Chaco?



My Dear Sarah,

This is Louis the dog here talking to you from heaven. Chaco has definitely come back to you and reincarnated into this new body. Many of us do reincarnate back to another physical body very easily. And as we all know, nothing happens by chance. You are very smart to feel and know this about the dog you got from your best friend. You always have to trust your feeling and sensing. Chaco is so very happy to be home with you again once more. He loves spending time with you in his new physical body.

Lots of Love,

Louis (As Read Through Sonya) 

Is our dog happy even though he is going blind?

Dear Sonya and Louis,

Is our 9-year-old dog Lucky happy even though he is going blind?

Thank you,



Dearest Jodi,

Lucky wants you to know that he is very happy. He tells me that you worry about him a lot of the time. I have many friends in the spirit world who were blind in their past lives. The great news is that we speak telepathically and it is easier for animals to lose their site than it is for humans. We feel emotions and feelings and see pictures images that humans are putting out all time. Our human companions transmit images and pictures of our home and where our bowls are that we receive so it makes it easier. He says he has no problems finding the food and water, he still has some of his sight left. He is asking could he have a little more cheese please. He is one happy dog.

Woof Woof,

Love from Louis (as read through Sonya)

Will my dog ever forgive me after choking to death on his food?

Hi Sonya and Louis,

My dog Corey just passed in 2013 on Sunday evening, Jan 27th, around 8 pm. He died because he choked to death on the food I feed him.  I tried to take the meat out of his throat, but it was too late.  I have been sad since. The pain is unbearable. I can’t forgive myself. Corey was only 11 yrs old. I want to know if he is still with me in spirit? Can he ever forgive me? Thanks very much.




Dear Andrew,

This is Louis, I am sorry I am just now getting back to you. We get so many letters and try to get to as many as we can. I want you to know that I am playing with your beautiful Corey right now. We have become best friends and he definitely DOES NOT BLAME YOU for his death. Animals don’t think like humans. We never think you are to blame for anything. He certainly doesn’t blame you for his death. We are all working out karmas and this was his and your karma.

Andrew, Corey tells me that you gave him great love and you played like a dog with him. He is telling me all about the happy times you shared together. He knows how much you loved him and if you could take him anywhere with you – you would. He will reincarnate back to you in this lifetime. And whatever dog you get – his soul will gradually go into it over a period of weeks. And you will start to see characteristics of him in the new dog you get. Your beloved Corey is determined to come back to you. You can read about how this works in Sonya Fitzpatrick’s book There Are No Sad Dogs in Heaven. I agree fully with Sonya – I have never met one sad dog here in Heaven. The book will help you understand that there is not death, life goes on when we come over to the spirit realm too. Please know that your beautiful Corey is around you and with you. And he wants you to know that he is able to go with you to restaurants and the park and he still sleeps in your bed. He is sending so much love to you Andrew.

Lots of love to you,

Louis (Read through Sonya)
