I had a session with an Animal Communicator once, about six months after my Piggy went to Rainbow Bridge. This is what I found out...
I asked her about Piggy (get the kleenex handy...I'll try to remember everything that we talked about....) She said that Piggy is with me now, and she would be with me forever. She asked if Piggy was fawn, and I said yes. She described her features almost to a T. She said that Piggy knows I'm sad and that I hurt for her, and that Piggy has gone to Rainbow Bridge, but she said that Piggy can feel my love for her every time I look at her picture (I have them everywhere, especially by my computer at work, so I see it everyday). She said Piggy is honored at the way I've fixed her resting place, and she likes the toys on it and the pink and purple flowers especially (purple was 'her' color), but that she's not there, she's in Heaven.
Piggy understands that I worry and she doesn't want me to worry about her, that she is fine. She said that Piggy can run fast and she doesn't hurt anymore, and she can see clearly now. She said that Piggy has found the man with the white hair that I sent to her to take care of her (I don't know who this could be unless it's my Grandpa). I told the AC that sometimes when I'm sitting quietly on the back porch and I'm thinking about her, that I can sometimes still hear her little bark, and she said that Piggy heard me and that she's so happy, she's doing the bouncy dance (she used to bounce up and down on her front paws for me when she was happy) and barking and she's so happy that I understand. She and I spent a lot of time in our porch swing together...that was our special time together.
The Animal Communicator said that Piggy told her that she loves us and that we gave her something she hadn't ever had before, and that was a home. She wasn't sure what to think when she first came to be with us, but she felt loved. And she said that just as Piggy is on my heart (I have a pendant that my daughter gave me a week after Piggy passed away and it had "Piggy" on one side and the day of her death on the other), that I am on her heart (her little doggy tag had our name/number on it). She said that when Barney and Clyde Patches come running through the house for no reason, that that's Piggy herding "the boys" (we always have called them 'the boys'...there's no way a stranger could know this) and that Piggy misses playing with the boys.
I had the AC ask about when Piggy died, did she hurt or suffer. She said 'no, she didn't suffer much, that her chest hurt, and sometimes how your body tells you to hang on, that she had to let go because it was so tight'. She said she was comforted that I was with her, but I wasn't, I was at work. When I told the AC this, she said that Piggy is insistant that I was with her and that I held her and told her I love her. She said she could hear my prayers, but it wasn't in words, it was in beautiful music, and the music was with her when she went over to Rainbow Bridge. When I got the call to go home and check on Piggy, I prayed all the way home. I got there and held her, I knew Piggy was gone, but I went ahead and and took her straight to my vet (I guess I just wanted him to tell me for certain and hear the words).
When I got home with her, I just sat in the car for probably 45 minutes and held her and cried. The Animal Communicator said that Piggy could feel my tears and that she didn't want me to be sad anymore. I told her to tell Piggy that when I get to Heaven, I was going to run to Rainbow Bridge to see her first, and she said that Piggy would be there waiting for me, to help guide me over to Heaven, as others were there to help guide her over. She said that Piggy said she has all she wants to eat and drink, and she runs and plays in the greenest, prettiest grass that you've ever seen, and the sunshine is so bright and pretty, and the sky is the bluest blue anyone could imagine. Piggy said things are just the way that I told her they would be in Heaven.
The Animal Communicator said that she could see that Piggy and I were more like sisters than mother/daughter...(I always called her my 'sidekick' because I took her everywhere I possibly could with me). She said that Piggy loved the pink dress and it made her feel very pretty. (anytime I put a sweater or pretty collar on her, she would always 'priss', and I had just gotten her a pretty pink polka dot harness dress...she got to try it on at home, and wear it to the PugPalooza in May).
The Animal Communicator also said that Piggy was laying her head over my heart like she always did and that she can feel my love for her (every afternoon when I came home and I picked her up, she would lay her head over on me, just at the heart). She said that Piggy comes to visit me in my dreams and she'll always be with me and wouldn't ever go away. She said Piggy also misses her Daddy, and that it made her sad when we had to leave every morning, but she always knew that we would come back later in the day (going to work) and she knew it was something that we had to do.
I don't know how you all feel about this, but the Animal Communicator said too much that there is no way she could know...so I choose to believe. It was extremely emotional for me and was a couple of hours before I could even talk about it. I know my Piggy can feel my love, and my heart overflows for her still today. I'll always miss her, but I take comfort knowing she knows how very, very much she was loved while I got to be her Momma.
