Josh's Tail - In Spirit

The communication with Josh was the first I'd done with an animal that has passed over. His energy was the same as an animal still living & the emotions he transferred onto me were very powerful & a first for me. Josh's communication will always be very special for me. Josh spent his life with my Best friend & her family, another reason why he's a special boy.

Josh seems full of energy, eager to run around, excitable. He loves to play, almost like he can’t believe we want to just sit around when we could all be outside playing!
This is so true, he was always full of energy, was always ‘hyper’, he loved being outside & active whether in the garden or on walks, or swimming in Stirchley pools.

Did he pull the lead?
Yes very much so, even pulled Dad & he’s a big bloke!

Did he have a red rubber ball?
Mom tells me he did have a hard rubber ball, though we cannot remember the colour.

Did he like chasing rabbits?
Unsure, never saw him doing that!
Gemma says if Josh had the chance to get off the lead he would run towards woodlands & trees to chase rabbits.
This is true; he’d always dart for the woodland!
Josh tells Gemma that he chases rabbits in Heaven & apparently he can do what he wants in Heaven, there’s no-one to tell him off!
Cheeky monkey!

How Josh feels about each of you as a family:-
Katie – Gemma sees Josh jump up at Katie & place both his paws on her shoulders. Gemma is then completely overwhelmed by a feeling of love from Josh which reduced both Katie & Gemma to tears, Josh showed Gemma just how much he loved Katie & then places one of his paws on her chest. He then placed a paw on Gemma’s chest.
Sarah – Gemma sees Josh lying at Sarah’s feet whilst she is on the sofa or in a chair, he liked to lye at her feet & to be near her (this is something he would do)
Mom – Gemma sees him nuzzling up to Mom as she sits at the kitchen table. Josh would do this, Mom would say nicely but firmly “Josh, go away”. Gemma believes Mom may feel Josh around, she may feel a sensation to her left, a tingling maybe as she sits at the table or maybe around the house.
Dad – Josh saw Dad as the authoritive figure, Gemma sees Josh sat quietly for Dad. Though to a certain extent this is true, they both pushed each other’s boundaries from time to time as both saw each other as the dominant male in the house!

Gemma says that Josh thanks all of us as we showed him what love really is before he left this world.

Did you have Josh put to sleep?
Yes we did.

Josh thanked us for this, says we made the right decision. He appreciated it being quick & he knew we were all there for him.

Josh says he is still with us. Katie asked if this is helped by the fact that we brought him home from the vets & buried him in the garden. Josh says as nice a gesture as that was, we didn’t need to do that, as he would always be with us anyway & that he didn’t need his body any longer.

Gemma sees Josh lay in the centre of the living room with us surrounding him on the sofas.
He did this, he’d be lay there & would just lift his head every so often to do a quick scan of the room, make sure we were all still there & ok!

Katie asked Josh why he felt the need to be so aggressive & hostile to people outside of the home & why he felt so much aggression towards the postman.

Josh replied that he felt very protective of us. Gemma also picked up on the fact that Josh almost felt the need to be aggressive because of the breed of dog that he was & the body that he was in, almost ‘bravado’, like living up to peoples expectation. Deep down he was very loving & Gemma says that Josh didn’t show her aggression at all during the reading.

Katie asked Josh why he felt the need to climb out of her bedroom window & slide down the garage roof one summer night when they were all outside!

Josh replies that he needed to be with us, he could hear us laughing outside & wanted to join in the fun! Similar to when you’re a child & your parents have visitors but you have to go to bed!

Gemma asked if Josh would always be with us, he replied yes.

Gemma believes that Josh & Katie had such a strong bond as they have known each other in a past life.
I would agree with this, we had a very special bond. I loved him so much. I’m not usually a ‘doggy’ person, however we had a very special bond that I know we both felt from the moment we met.

Gemma asks her pendulum if Josh & Katie may meet again in the future. The pendulum says yes & that Josh’s spirit may be re-incarnated in another dog that Katie will own in the future.

Gemma, thank you so much for this wonderful reading and bringing the memory of Josh’s love and light back into my life after all these years. I cry as I type this. He was such an amazing, special, wonderful & charming dog. He was my baby. I believe for those 2 years that we had together that we completed each other. Though a loving family pet, Josh was always my dog & we were pretty much inseparable. I miss and love you so much Joshy & I look forward to the day our spirits will meet again. I’m so glad you’re happy in Rainbow Bridge but even happier to hear that you’re still with us. xxx

Beaver's tail

After communicating with Beaver in a distant (telephone) communication, where I have a photo in front of me & the pets owner on the end of the phone, I received the following feedback from Jenny (Beaver's Mum).

When Beaver wants something he is inclined to put his head over to the right hand side like you said.

He does like looking into water. There is a particular corner of our fish pond that fascinates him and we cannot see what he is looking at (the fish are usually at the other end) and there are trees behind him along the road which we can see from our garden.

He does always seem to be wanting to please and looking for commands especially when we are out walking. As if it’s a case of am I doing it right, do I go this way or that..

He is certainly a Mum's boy and gets very agitated if he can't find me.

Toys - he is not bother with and we have to get him to play ball.  Edwin has just tried to get him out in the garden now but he has come upstairs and is sitting on the landing watching me. Has to know where I am all the time.

His bed is blue and oval with a liner like you described.

I wonder if the young couple and a baby were his owners in early life or the last. When we adopted him a lady only had him for 9 months and brought him back because he had been growling at her 3 children. (There is no aggression in him whatsoever and he is not  bothered if young children are around him or stroking him). Perhaps another baby came on the scene and that's why he came back. They couldn't cope so the dog had to go. (As happens in many cases!)  I really think his last owner loved him because he came with a lovely bed etc and the people at the kennels said she was so upset he couldn't ask her any questions.

He does work a lot with his nose to the ground.

He certainly likes chicken but he is fed on dry food but does have meat now and again (my neighbour usually brings leftovers over for him).  Chicken and rice is usually when he has an upset tummy but he will eat anything.

He does like his home.  When we take him on holiday he is usually OK for the first week and then does not want to eat.  I have to hand feed him but as soon as he is back home he is back to normal eating.

He did have a hair cut and bath on the 29th July.

He would not go on the sofa at first - just didn't seem to like it but now when we use our lounge (we sit in our little room a lot) sometimes he asks to come up.

I do think he has a lot going on in his mind.  I am always reassuring him that we love him very much and that he is not going anywhere and has nothing to worry about.  Each night when he goes to bed I tell him how much we love him and not to worry. We will always be there for him.

If I can help any more or you want to talk to Beaver again, no problem. I certainly think you had a lot of things right and I am fascinated about the looking into water.
