Our Newfoundland, Kali, had her spirit set free very recently (Oct. 2004). She communicated with professionals and amateurs in the physical world, and I suspect she'd be happy to keep working with us whever she is now.

I'm happy to validate anything she tells someone, and have some questions I'd like answered about her passing:

- did she know what was wrong with her?
- why did she whine/cry as we were laying her down on the mat at the vet's?
- would she like her ashes to stay here with us, or is there a place she'd like to have them spread - or does it matter to her?

Her "stats":
Newfoundland Dog, black, spayed female
7.5 years old

You can see Kali's picture at our website: www.nwk.ca - click on "Newfs", and then "Kali".

Hi Sharon.

I spoke with Kali.


What a talkative girl she is.  She says she likes talking.  She seemed truly excited for me to visit, very friendly and very energetic.

She said to tell you not to be sad.  She misses you too, but she said, 'we are where we need to be and I visit with her when she's sad.  I like to look after her.  She took such good care of me, and I want to return the favor."

She says she is very happy where she is. She has lots of other playmates -- other dogs mostly.  She says, "I liked my dog life.  I'm not ready to let it go just yet."  She said that she is not sure what her next life will/should be.  

I asked why she needed to leave at such a young age:  She said, "I needed to leave because I had things to do.  I was on a stopover."  She said that she never really finished her spiritual learning from the last time she had gone to the spirit world, but she reincarnated to be with you at the behest of a friend.  She said you needed her.  I asked, "What friend?"  She said, "Another dog friend.  White with brown spots."  

I realized that I kept getting your two names confused and she was very gracious saying that you two were very much as one.

I asked what you had learned from her.  I heard "patience," and sort of sighed to myself and she said, "Patience always seems to come up first -- don't discount it."  She defined it as patience because of her health and then she also added, "acceptance."  As in the bigger picture.  She says, "I didn't try her patience, it was patience in the spiritual realm.  I understood that more when I was talking to her, but I'm not getting it all right now.  

I asked if she is back learning now, and she said, yes, she is.  She then noted that I have a pain in my back and told me to note it to my physical therapist.  She's very conscientious. :-)

I don't know where you live, I am just now seeing a .ca on your site for her.  My sense was north mid-west region to north-east region of U.S. or Southern Canada across from that.  Are you anywhere near Minnesota?  Just north of there perhaps?  She said the weather is "crisp."  She liked that.  

I asked about your home.  She said it was large -- ranch style.  Is that correct?   She says she liked her playmates, but they were healthier than she.   She said is was green outside and that they liked to play.  

She said she liked to play with something hanging from a tree.  I then got a picture of a volleyball and then a playground.  She said she was taken to the playground and she liked that.  

She said she had a happy home.  I asked about your cat, and she said that he (he?) was there to meet her, but she has since moved on.  She doesn't know where.  She seemed to have a sense of humor.

I asked if there was anything she'd like to tell you and she said, "Thank you for my life, thank you for my love, I am with you always."

I thanked her for speaking with me, and she reiterated that she likes to speak.

Now....that was from your post on the introduction board.  When I came to post the communication, I realized you had posted this.  So I went back and asked her the questions you asked.


- did she know what was wrong with her?
It appeared to be a lung problem. She said she found it hard to breath.

- why did she whine/cry as we were laying her down on the mat at the vet's?
She first said that her foot hurt, it got turned under a bit, but she also said that she was a bit afraid.  She said it was a little scary not knowing, but that she's calm and happy now.

- would she like her ashes to stay here with us, or is there a place she'd like to have them spread - or does it matter to her?
"What's most important is their comfort, but if they're spread, do it someplace beautiful, big and open -- so I can breath.  Someplace like the mountains.  But they are the most important.  I am with them one way or the other.  My body was just my vehicle.  My soul is my heart."  

I have only been doing this a short time, but this is the first time that I got very emotional.  She said, "Be happy for me.  I am no longer in pain.  I am happy and calm."

I assured her how much you love and miss her.  She said, "I love them, too.  They gave me a good life. "

Let me know if any of this is accurate.  I'm so sorry for your loss, Sharon.  I know how hard it is, but she is there for you.  She hears you and she knows you hear her.  That's why she talks to you.  It must be an awfully big hole in your life.  She seems like such a sweetie.

Thanks, Caat. It's comforting to know it was her time. Having never had to euthanize before, I was so worried that I made the decision too soon.

Kali always told other communicators that she was much smarter than the rest of our dogs, and not as "prissy" as the show dogs. She was always a very chatty girl, and I'm glad to see that hasn't changed.

I'm glad she had a happy dog life. I've had many people say that if they had the choice, they'd like to come back as one of my dogs.

This is interesting. We looked at getting a newf (I had two flat-coats when my husband met me), but didn't have a vehicle large enough. We got our Australian Shepherd instead - who is a tricolor- black, with white and copper spots. Soon after, we bought our van, and I contacted I breeder I knew to be put on a waiting list. That's when we were told there were three teenagers needing a home - and we got Kali. Could it have been Brisbane (the aussie) who asked her to come?

That's very true. Kali was a very undemanding dog, and never tried my patience. I think she's refering to my ability to accept that I can communicate. I expect she's been talking to me quite a lot, and I've just not been tuned in to her. She knows I'm trying.

We live in Saskatchewan. Kali always liked being outdoors - often preferred it to being in the house. She loved winter and playing in the snow. It snowed the week she had to leave us.

We have a fairly large bungalow on just under an acre of land. We have eight dogs, so she had many playmates. The dogs have a fenced play area, and it's surrounded by green grass.

We used to take the dogs to playgrounds to practice agility. We haven't done that in a very long time, but I'm glad to know she liked it.

I'm glad she thinks our home is a happy one. I know Chloe (she) was there to meet Kali - Kali told me that. After she showed me her impression in the window, I saw Chloe's. We don't know what happened to Chloe, but suspect she was taken by some coyotes. I'm glad she was able to meet Kali.

I asked if there was anything she'd like to tell you and she said, "Thank you for my life, thank you for my love, I am with you always."


I'm glad to hear that, Kali. You will always, always be a part of me.

Very interesting. When we took her to emergency, the vet said she noticed there was greater effort on inspiration than on expiration. Yet, the xrays and ultrasound showed nothing. We did notice her breathing seemed more labored on the day we put her down.

She first said that her foot hurt, it got turned under a bit, but she also said that she was a bit afraid. She said it was a little scary not knowing, but that she's calm and happy now.



This is what we thought. My husband said her foot got turned under a little bit. I was worried that she was afraid, but I guess we all would be afraid in that situation. I'm so glad she's calm and happy now.

"What's most important is their comfort, but if they're spread, do it someplace beautiful, big and open -- so I can breath. Someplace like the mountains. But they are the most important. I am with them one way or the other. My body was just my vehicle. My soul is my heart."


I think we'll keep them, Kali. We want to have you close to us.

Thank you so very much, Caat. It's comforting to know she is happy. We've decided she left us to go choose our next newf puppy. The week she became ill, a newf was bred in New Zealand from whom we hope to get our next pup. Kali has gone to find that puppy for us. Is it possible that she'll come back to us in a healthy body?

This is so very fascinating to me, and I have so many questions. Thank you for providing a forum to ask them.
