a woman who, while visiting san francisco, decided to take a walk in the citys lafayette park with her normally enthusiastic companion, a small boxer. after findinga parking place, the woman was surprsed-andannoyed- when her pet steadfastly refused to get out of the car. finally giving up in anger and disgust, she drove back to the hotel where she was staying, scolding her strangely stubborn pet all the way. the next day, however ,as the woman drove past the park, she gasped in horror when she saw that a giant tree had fallen onto the exact spot where her car had been parked. upon asking, she learned that it had crashed to earth only minutes after she and her psychic pooch had pulled away. [this happened years ago]
get real get a husky, brandi is best,its to bad every bodys husky aint as good as mine
I'm not sure psychic is the correct term. I do believe they feel things and are much more sensitive then we are to their surroundings. I think all animals are, in general, more attune to the atmosphere and changes in barometric pressure. Hence why you read all the time about them taking off before earthquakes, tsunamis, etc. And why, before a single cloud or raindrop fell, my dog Princess knew a storm was coming and would start freaking out 2 hours before it started.
Now to add to this ... does anyone belive that a person could be re-incarnated as a dog? My sister-in-law swears that our dog Max has the soul of a person in him. She says she has always gotten this strange feeling when she has been around him, like he is an old soul and has been here before. She even went so far as to ask someone she knows who is intune to this sort of stuff and the woman agreed that it most definitely is possible and that the soul she feels in him must be connected to her in some way for her to be able to sense this in him. Now she wants me to bring Max to this woman for confirmation of her feelings.
I agree, I do think dogs (and even cats) do have a better "sense" and react on instict when they feel something bad is going to happen.
On the reincarnation, yes, I too agree that it is possible. But, I think sometimes it could be just wishful thinking on the owner. I guess it would just have to depend on the situation. I really think anything is possible, if not, we would have a really boring world
Animals, what animals? My children just have alot of hair!
Having been around old ones in the past, I know that big trees do not crash to the ground without making forbidding creaking noises in advance. I would suspect the pup heard something while the owner was focused on other things. Chances are a normal person walking down the street would have heard the noises, too, were they not distracted by other things.
As for reincarnation and such -- there are too many things in this life that I can't explain to pass judgment one way or the other.
I believe that animals are more *sensative* than humans. They know when a storm is comming by the change of pressure in the atmosphere and noises that are too faint for us to hear.
However, I do believe that animals can tell when someone is "Not right." My grandma had a guy over to fix something at her farm when I was 7. My grandma's australian shepherd, Lady, was my best friend at the time. Lady didn't like this guy for no reason and my grandma's mad, spider-man like skills, caught Lady in the air just before she would have bit this man in the face. My dog, Bronx (great-great-great grandson of Lady), was sitting with me on my front porch while I was smoking. An aquaintence of ours came over to pick up his room mate (a friend of my hubby's). Bronx wanted to tear in to this guy, and he had never seen him before. The guy did nothing other than say "Hi" to me. I had to sit on Bronx, wrap my legs around his body and my arms around his neck. It took all I had to keep him from attacking. That's the only time I have seen him react to someone like that.
There have been other times when we were hiking with our dogs and they didn't let us (me, hubby, 10 year old daughter and 6 year old son) go down a path. The times that happened, we found out that there was a party at a camp site that got out of hand.
As my hubby says about our dogs when this happens "They may be crazy, but their never wrong."
If people had emotions as pure as animals, our hearts would have to tripple in size.
IMO...animals are more sensitive to things, but I wouldnt say psychic. Dogs are more in tune, IMO, since unlike us, they dont have a million things on their mind...the bills, work, the kids, what they have to get at the grocery store, a disconnect notice, etc...
We are so busy minded we dont always tune into the small things around us. Pets, do, I believe have a 'sense' of things not being right, and I do truly trust my dogs insticts on people. They can sense bad characters.
Re-incarnation....not a subject for me. I have a spiritual side to me, but am not in the belief that anyone re-incarnates into a animals body.
My take is like lpn's. Some dog senses are much more keen then ours. Hearing, smell etc. This may help a dog to sense things out of the ordinary or to perceive things to come based on simple environmental stimuli. Like perhaps hearing thunder rumbling too far away for humans to hear. I don't believe that dogs have any esp ability but I do think that dogs have intelligence and self awareness.
I am a person of faith. I have to believe that a soul, a persons conciseness ascends to an existence that we simply can not understand in this world. A place where there is no pain, no hunger no despair. A place of wonder, beauty and perfection.
I do not believe in reincarnation.

I believe dogs are more cognizant of their surroundings than humans and may exhibit behavior that humans can interpret for good or for bad. Psychic? No. But then I don't believe humans can be psychic either. Intuitive? Yes for both species. Psychotic? Yes for both species!
