Arrival Story:
I was walking by a pet store one day when I saw this adorable ball of fur in the window. I went inside and in the cage were two gorgeous pekingese puppies. A male and female. They both ran to greet me when I walked up to their cage, and the male pushed the little female aside. I bought him on the spot and named him Brandon.

Bio:
February 21, 1985 - August 6, 2000 Brandon was the sweetest pekingese I had ever owned. He loved people and other dogs and even cats. He got along with everyone. When I took him places, people would always comment about how friendly he was for a pekingese. I got to enjoy 15 wonderful years with my baby boy. When he was 15, he developed a tumor in his mouth which I had surgically removed. It returned a couple months later and I did not want him to endure the pain that he had during his first surgery. One evening just as I was fixing to feed Brandon the tumor ruptured and I and my husband rushed Brandon to the emergency vet clinic. They said there was nothing that they could do for him and suggested euthanasia. I loved Brandon so much, I didn't want to say goodbye to him just yet, but I also did not want him to suffer in pain either. They left me alone with him in the room to think about my decision. I finally decided that the time had come to say goodbye to my best friend of 15 years. I always knew the day would come, but I wasn't prepared for the hurt that would come with it. I held him in my arms as he gently went to sleep forever, meanwhile my heart was breaking into a million pieces. Several years have gone by since then, but I still feel guilty and not a day goes by still that Brandon doesn't cross my mind. As I held him for the last time, I whispered to him that if there was ANY way possible, I wanted him to come back and let me know that he was okay. I know a lot of people don't believe in an afterlife, but I do. After Brandon died, my cat Kayleigh who had become very close to Brandon had started sleeping in his favorite spot after he died. One day on a whim, I snapped her picture as she laid in what was Brandon's favorite place to sleep. When I got my pictures developed, the picture of Kayleigh had a white foggy appearance to it, and when I looked closer, I could clearly make out the image of Brandon's face within the fog (mist). I included that picture here, and if you look closely you can "see" Brandon's eyes, nose and mouth and even the white on his chin and chest area. When this picture was taken, Brandon had already been gone for over a month. I honestly believe that he honored my request and came back one last time to let me know he was still around....maybe not physically, but in spirit.

My mommy subscribes to an online weekly newsletter called "Angel Animals". Last weeks story was about an animal who appeared in his owners dream after his death. Mommy wrote to the editors of the newsletter and explained how much She enjoyed the weekly story, since she too, had had a deceased pet appear in her dreams. The following story is what she wrote to them and they immediately wrote me back and asked if they could post HER story! Of course, she said YES! Here it is and I'd like to share it with all of you. She cried like a baby when she read it this morning. If any of you would like to subscribe to it, the subscription information is at the bottom....and it's FREE.

Dear Friends of Angel Animals,

Welcome to the Angel Animals Story of the Week.
This week's story is about a dog who honored his human
companion's special request.

Animal blessings, Allen & Linda Anderson

STORY OF THE WEEK

BRANDON CAME BACK
By Lisa Perry

I had a Pekingese named Brandon. When he was fifteen years old, I noticed his upper lip seemed puffy. I examined it closer and noticed a lump on his upper gum just inside his lip where the puffiness was visible from the outside.

I took him to the vet. The lump was diagnosed as a tumor and it was removed. The vet advised me that she was not able to remove all of it and it might return. Sure enough, six months later the tumor returned.

Brandon had experienced a lot of pain the first time he had surgery for this problem, and I didn't want to put him through that suffering a second time. Over the next weeks Brandon's condition grew worse. My husband and I rushed him to the emergency vet clinic, where they advised me that the best thing to do was put him to sleep.

I always knew I would eventually have to make that decision, but I wasn't prepared to make it so unexpectedly.

They left me alone with Brandon to think about my decision. I cried a sea of tears as my heart broke into a million pieces. I hugged him and told him how much I loved him. I explained how sorry I was for having to make this decision and asked him to please forgive me.

Then I asked Brandon if there were ANY possible way, would he come visit me and let me know that he was okay?

I held Brandon as he fell asleep in my arms forever. The vets left me alone with him for a while again. I cried into his fur and whispered once again for him to please come visit me and let me know he was okay.

I felt so guilty for having him put to sleep. Even after seven years have passed, I still feel guilt.

About two weeks after Brandon's death, I had a dream that I was in a white, brightly lit room. I remembered standing in the middle of the room alone and wondering where I was and why I was there.

Suddenly I heard barking. I turned to see Brandon bounding into the room! I was overjoyed to see him. I knelt to the floor, and he jumped into my arms. I hugged him tightly as he licked my face over and over!

We played together in the room while I petted him. Then suddenly he stood up, and I knew it was time to say good-bye once again. I woke up at that point and was crying. I believe that was my first visit with Brandon.

My second visit, I was not even aware of. This one occurred about a month after Brandon's death.

In addition to Brandon, I also have a cat named Kayleigh. I think she knew that Brandon was old and blind. She was very tolerant of him when he would sometimes run and step on her as she lay sleeping on the floor. So many times I would wake in the morning or come home from
work and find Brandon sound asleep in his little bed, with Kayleigh quietly and intently lying beside his bed, just watching him sleep.

After Brandon's death, I believe Kayleigh grieved for him as much as I did. She began lying in what was Brandon's favorite spot.

One day, on a whim, I decided to snap a picture of Kayleigh lying in Brandon's spot. When I got the pictures developed, I saw what I thought was a bad photo of Brandon. Then it dawned on me that Brandon had been dead a month. There were NO pictures of him on this roll of film!

I looked more closely at the picture and realized it was the picture of Kayleigh lying in Brandon's spot that I had taken only a few days earlier. However, covering a large portion of her body was a dark shadow face or what appeared to be a face. I could make out that it was Brandon's face. I saw his eyes, nose, mouth, and the white of his chest and chin area.

I showed the picture to people in my family and friends who knew Brandon. I always got the same reaction from everyone who saw it. They would say, "Oh my God, that's Brandon!" So I think that was my second visit from Brandon.

A few years ago, I had a phone psychic reading. I was hoping to reach my dad who had passed away in 1987. Before I was due to call the psychic, I looked at my dad's picture and told him what I was about to do. I asked if there were any messages he needed to get to me to please give it to the psychic so she could tell me. I also asked him
to please let me know that Brandon was okay too.

During the phone psychic reading, the psychic gave me a lot of validations that my dad was indeed coming through. Toward the end of the reading, I was happy that I was able to make contact with my dad. However, I felt a little disappointed that she made no mention of Brandon.

Suddenly the psychic said, "Wait a minute. I see a small, brown dog running and jumping around."

At that point, I lost it and I started bawling like a baby. The
psychic asked me if I was all right, and I admitted that prior to our call, I had talked to my dad's picture and asked him to let me know how Brandon was doing.

Letter From the Rainbow Bridge

To my beloved owner,
there's some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know,
that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from the Bridge.
Here I dwell with God above.
Here there's no more tears of sadness.
Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy
just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you
every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you
when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me
and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family,
They'll be here later on."
God gave me a list of things,
that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list,
was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night
the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you...
in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth,
and all those loving years,
because you are only human,
they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry:
it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you
all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you,
you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain,
though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now,
than I ever was before.
There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it
by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy
and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world,
the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody
who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night...
"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented...
that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along
I made somebody smile.
God says: "If you meet somebody
who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up,
as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street
with me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind."
"And when it's time for you to go...
from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going...
you're coming here to me."
