Do our minds play tricks on us to comfort us? or do they realy appear!
The story of Hobbes the golden retriever who died of cancer, is comforting.
It also makes one think too.
Heartbroken after Hobbes death , his owners put photos of him on their fridge.
One week after their beloved dogs death, Moe their son returned from Uni.
He visited with a friend who upon seeing all the pictures of Hobbes
covering the fridge, asked about the display.
Moe told his friend how only one week earlier, their dog had passed away.
“Thats impossible” his friend replied shocked at his statement.
“I just saw your dog and stroked him ” added the friend.
From people claiming to still feel the presence of their pets after they pass.
To sightings of dogs in fields, that just seem to “disappear”
It would be comforting to know that animal afterlife exsists.
After all they do have souls , just like us.
