Her name was Kirby, and she left us at the too-young age of 12 last October. I can guarantee you'll have fun if you talk to this girl!

Hi Daryl.

I spoke with Kirby.  She sure is hyper!  She seemed very excited to talk.  When I introduced myself, and told her you asked that I speak with her, she immediately said what a great dad you were.  She says she misses you but is with you.

She showed me a ball with multicolored string.  She says she loved it.  I'm not sure if it was one of those rubber things with the multicolored yarn hanging off it or if it was some sort of round object. She also showed me a small back yard.

I told her you got a new friend but are not trying to replace her.  She said she knows that and is happy you have someone new.  She said she wants you to be happy. She says she had a good life with you.  She said is was time for her to move on, but she didn't elaborate.

She said you learned from her, patience, and she learned in this life how to be herself.  She said loved when you picked her up and hugged her.  She said your hugs were 'very real.'

She said she hated doors slamming and that she liked to jump on the screen door. (I saw it as a screen door with white wood rather than aluminum, is that correct?)  She says she scratched it a few times because of her long nails.

She then, again, mentioned how much she loved your hugs.  She says she's doing fine and that she is happy.  When asked if there was any other message I could give you from her, she said "I look over them... I care."  "I love them soooo much.  Tell them I miss them but I'm around."
 
I thanked her and told her to 'have fun.'  She said "you too."    I was pooed (exhausted) after speaking with her, she seems really energetic.  What a sweetie.

Let me know if I got any of this right.

Caat!!!

It's great to see you back. How are you? How was Canada?

Thank you so much for talking with Kirby. God, yes, we miss her -- every single day! Reading this brought tears to my eyes.

Okay, on to how you did....

Yes, she was hyper and excitable. She was "all Jack Russell, all the time"!  :lol:  But she could also be the cutest, sweetest thing you ever met.

I'm not sure what the ball with multicolored string might be. I'll have to keep my eyes open when I go home and see if I spot anything that makes me think of that. She wasn't really one for toys; she was more into chasing other dogs who were chasing toys.

She did love her "blankies", though. Jo Ann would give her a piece of soft blanket or fake fur (stuff she used to make teddy bears with), and Kirby would hold it in her mouth and chew it when she was stressed or watching TV. It did make for some interesting multi-colored "deposits" in the back yard! I wonder if that's what you were seeing? (When she pooped, it sometimes looked like she'd eaten her way through a hardware store.)

She did like the back yard, and she loved to go out with me every morning to feed the birds. (Her contribution consisted of jumping up and down eagerly while I wrestled with the sliding door, then she would dash out and make sure there were no intruders in the yard before I got out there.)

She didn't like loud noises like doors slamming, fireworks, thunder, or gunshots.

Our only screen door is part of the big sliding door that opens into the back yard. I don't recall her clawing at it, though. There was also a perf-board partition that we used when we wanted to keep her closed up in the kitchen. When she wanted out of the kitchen, she would jump up and bang against it. Maybe that's the screen door you saw?

Whoa! I just remembered...! Yes, when she jumped by the sliding screen door (waiting for me to open it so we could "feed the birds"), she used to like to tag it with her paw and make it rattle! Good one, Caat!

She did like hugs, and I did give her a lot of them. Our last day together, I took her for a walk on the beach; I let her walk as far as she could, then I carried her all the way back to the car. We looked into each other's eyes the whole way, except that mine were filled with tears all the while.

Yes, I did learn patience from her!  :lol:

And she was ever and always totally herself, that's for sure. If we wanted to get her to do anything at all, she always had to feel there was something worthwhile in it for her. She had a sparkling, powerful personality packed into that small body.

I do often feel her with us, watching over us and hanging out.

If you talk to her again, ask her about the "hide and seek" game we used to play! Also, please tell her that we're VERY sorry about not catching on to the heart trouble earlier. (You might want to rest up a bit before you talk with her again!)

Definitely a special girl, our Kirby.

Darn, there are those tears again.

Thank you, Caat!!!!

Dear Daryl1,

   Hi!  I'm very new to animal communication and I know this post has already been responded to, but  I thught I'd try taking with Kirby too and relay my impressions.  

    Let me first say that I only read your post and saw her picture.  I did not read the other's reply until just this moment, until after i took my notes.  It seems i got some of the same bits of info. the above communicator got, but I received different impressions too- please let me know what is accurate.  

    Thanks so much to you and Kirby for the practice!

    Kirby, female, small white/brown patch coloring, lived to 12 yrs. passed receently:

     -Hyper, hapy dog, excitable
     -I see her running fast in tight circles
     -I see her resting in the grass.  She liked grass
     -Slept on someone's bed insuide the house
     -"Show me somethign you used to do..."  I see her rubbing her nose on the carpet in backward sweeping motions as if to cover up a toy with the air (vs. dirt)
      -I see a german Shepard dog (Did she know one?)
      -I see her stretched out on her belly, legs stretched out in front and stright behind her, and she's yowling and whining playfully at teh same time
      -"Tell me something your owner would like to be reminded about..." I see her on the bed, barking at someone to wake them up or at least get them up.  She's very vocal in insisting she get this person up.
      -I see a person with a bow and arrow  (I have no idea what this means)
      -I see her sniffing in the bushes intently
      -She loves the outdoors
      -I see her eating food (dry kibble) very quickly, she was a fast eater    
      -"What did you do to make people laugh?"  See her jumping on her hind legs and kinda staying in that position
     -"What's special about you?"  I get, "My eyes."
     -I Heard the phrase, "Part of the pack."  (Was that ever said around her. a saying of somebodies?  Or perhaps her own perceptions.)  

     -Please let me know all that is accurate/verifiable.  Thanks!

Hi Danielle!

Thanks for the PM to let me know you'd talked with Kirby. I've been so busy lately that I hardly ever get here on my own any more.

Thanks, too, for speaking with Kirby. She was definitely a special gal!

"Hyper, happy dog, excitable." Yes, through and through!

"I see her running fast in tight circles ." She did love to run, and sometimes ran in tight circles while playing. She especially loved to run on the beach, though, chasing birds, other dogs, dots on the horizon....

"I see her resting in the grass. She liked grass." She did love to lie in the sun in the yard, especially if one of us was nearby.

"Slept on someone's bed insuide the house ." Yes, she was allowed to sleep on the bed during the day and evening. She loved it. At night, she had her own bed in the kitchen.

"I see her rubbing her nose on the carpet in backward sweeping motions as if to cover up a toy with the air (vs. dirt)" She was always trying to bury some special treat or chew stick in the covers on the bed. She never seemed to notice that the comforter didn't cover her things up properly, the way loose dirt would!

"I see a german Shepard dog (Did she know one?) " Hmmmm. I don't know of any German Shepherds she would have known. Sorry!

"I see her stretched out on her belly, legs stretched out in front and stright behind her, and she's yowling and whining playfully at teh same time." We'd usually play silly wrestling games with her lying on the bed and me kneeling next to it. This sounds a bit like one of them. Oh, and I was always trying to get her to sing with me. (She could be pretty talkative once she got started!)

"I see her on the bed, barking at someone to wake them up or at least get them up. She's very vocal in insisting she get this person up. "
Sounds like another "Play with me!!!" moment.

"I see a person with a bow and arrow (I have no idea what this means)." Me either. Although I enjoy archery, I never owned a bow while Kirby was alive. I did play around a bit with a slingshot in the yard, but I don't get the sense that's what you were picking up.

"I see her sniffing in the bushes intently." Yes. She loved to patrol the yard, sniffing around for small creatures to torment. She also loved to smell everything when we walked. I used to tease her that she was trying to sniff the color off the plants.

"She loves the outdoors." Yes, she loved the outdoors very much. Always looking for the next adventure.

"I see her eating food (dry kibble) very quickly, she was a fast eater." She was a fast eater when she liked what she was eating. She was also a suspicious eater. It was very difficult to trick her into taking pills in bits of treats or meat, for example, because she'd always taste things as if she was afraid we were trying to pull a fast one on her. She wasn't very fond of kibble, but she had to live on it the last couple years of her life because she was prone to weight problems. (That particular type kibble was a reduced-fat, reduced-calorie, reduced-flavor, reduced-fun food from the doctor. It was apparently designed to be something one would only eat out of desperation. It did the trick, but she hated it.) Wait.... She DID like some of the varieties of kibble we fed her before her weight became a problem. Her very favorite things were bacon, steak and chicken, though.

"See her jumping on her hind legs and kinda staying in that position." She would do a great many amusing things, especially if there was the promise of a treat. She'd lie flat on the floor, she'd sit, she would even wink! But I'm afraid that standing on her hind legs wasn't one of those things. I think it's because my wife (who adopted Kirby before I came along) thought it would be too dangerously cute if Kirby did sit up like that and beg -- and it was already hard enough not to give her treats every time we turned around.

"What's special about you?" I get, "My eyes." She did have intense, captivating eyes. But I wonder, you didn't happen to picture her winking and think, "Nah, that's just TOO crazy -- I can't say that!", did you? Because that was the most amazing of all her tricks, winking. I never did manage to prove to anyone other than my wife that she could do it, though.

I Heard the phrase, "Part of the pack." (Was that ever said around her. a saying of somebodies? Or perhaps her own perceptions.) It's possible. We (my wife and I) do sometimes refer to our little family as "the pack" when talking about or to our canine friends.


So, good job, Danielle!!! And thank you again for talking with my friend.


      Best wishes,

     -- Daryl

Daryl1,

   Hi!  When I asked Kirby "What's special about you?" I just got a thought/word response.  No picture with that one.  

    I didn't think you ask- "Why your eyes?"  I bet she woulda shown me a wink.  Ah well.  :)  

    But I guess she knew that to you- the answer of "my eyes" would mean something.  I wouldn't think most dogs would think to tell you "Its my eyes"  because that seems more like a human response.  Interesting.   I would loved to have seen her wink!  

     Thanks, Daryl and Kirby!

    -Danielle  :)

    P.S.  You know- I WAS getting a picture of her nosing around in the covers on a bed, but it was an unclear pict or EXACTLY what she was doing.  I shoulda asked her what she was doing.  

    I did'nt know what to make of it, it was a random picture- not led by a question and it was so quick.  

     I'm glad you mentioned it- because that means I need to really pay close attention.
