Conversations with Skai #6
Hi Mr. Skai,
Today, I need your advice for all of us dog lovers. You see, the biggest problem with you dogs is you only live a fraction of our lifetime and as soon you turn seven or eight, most of us dog lovers become very aware of how time flies.
We do all we can. We feed our dogs wholesome raw or cooked food, all-natural supplements, such as vitamins, minerals, probiotics and omega oils. We’ve learned how to extend the life of canines years beyond the average and despite all this, we dog lovers are still painfully aware of how quickly time passes. No time is long enough with you, our beloved dogs.
When we were sailing in June after you left us, I felt you more. You seemed to be hanging around more. I felt your energy.
A couple of times, we saw dolphins. You know I love dolphins and the second we saw them, they were especially boisterous and fun to watch. They played in the waves, jumped out of the water and were doing rollbacks and other tricks. And as I watched them, I thought how alike you and the dolphins were. Playful and free.
I consider myself quite spiritual, but when it comes to an afterlife, I’m a little hesitant to jump to absolutes. The reality is we can’t be 100 percent certain, we just love to believe there is life after death for our dogs and us.
On the physical level, we have no definite proof. However quantum physics and most religions suggest an afterlife exists. Since you passed away, I’ve been looking for signs and as I was watching the dolphins frolicking in the water, I asked quietly, “Give me a signal my friend.”
A few seconds later two dolphins jumped up opposite each other, creating a heart shape with their bodies. I was standing there, having a hard time believing what I just saw. Others around me on the boat started yelling: “Look, look, they just made a heart!” They had no idea about my request.
A few days later after leaving the boat
We were back in Prague (Czech Republic) and my family visit was nearing its end. At the same time, my 16-year-old nephew Petr, (your cousin :-), played at a national golf championship and his game was worse than usual. I dared to ask you for help and guess what! He won the national championship title! Once again you definitely got my attention.
I can see you are determined to convince me you are still around, being the same lovely and caring you as always. I feel you out there and perhaps when I expressed my doubts, I just meant it was not accurate to imagine that you still exist somewhere out there in the same form as before. I feel when you dogs leave the physical world, you take on a form that allows you to get even closer to our heart…
Your dad, Dr. D.
