I've had that dream this week about Chloe. I had it many times after my Sasha died. It's so sad.

I haven't had that dream but I still dream about both my girls.

Its been 2 years since Fi died and, just a couple months ago, I finally had a happy dream about her. All of the previous dreams were nightmares reliving various scenarios about her death. My dreams about Tali have been very sweet, thankfully. I've actually woke up a handful of mornings and felt like I spent a day hanging out with Tali again. Its so comforting. I'd like those dreams every night the rest of my life.

The same here 82 - It will be 5 years in April sine we lost Kasia - Lost Ali in Sept. of 19 - Haven't had a Kasia dream for a good while - but they were always happy dreams -

Ali has been very tuff on all of us - we just can't get over her death -

Now you all are going to think I'm really nuts here - Even more than you already thought . But it was in Oct 19 - almost a month since Ali girl left us - We were in full harvest mode , I slept with Kadin that night , it was about 4:30 in the morning and I looked over and seen Ali laying on the floor looking at me with her green ball , She looked younger and So , So happy - Just looking at me - I sat up in bed a hundred miles a hour - But then Ali was gone . I just sat there and cried and cried - at that time - my wife came out and asked Ken ! What is wrong ??? I told her the story and she then started to cry uncontrollably . I said I think she was worried about us and was just checking in to say hey ! I/m OK - Don't worry , I'm still here .

There has been other times I felt like I seen her out the corner of my eye - or felt her presents among us .

It sure is a tuff deal around here sometimes .

But would never trade one moment we all had together for anything .

I haven't had dreams about giving her away, but I've had had dreams with Brandy. Some good and some not so good. Recently I had one where I knew I was dreaming somehow, but it still seemed real and all I could do was hold on to her and try to make it last as long as I could. My husband gets upset because he hasn't dreamed about her.

Lots of dogs in lots of years and I still dream about the ones that pretty clearly meant the most to me.

My first Doberman--as a puppy, bringing me something in his mouth--depositing a slightly soggy but undamaged kitten ( we had barn cats back then) in my hands.

A nephew of his who used to carry a towel for me when we were going into a show building...

Another nephew who was big, looked scary to people but whose favorite thing to do was walk behind total strangers and stick his muzzle in their hand.

I've never dreamed about giving away a dog who had died--my dreams about dogs, some of them long gone, were always about the things I remembered them doing.

Geeze--dreaming that you had given away a dog who was dead would be pretty depressing.

For dogs who've passed I always have happy dreams... although I can wake up sobbing from such dreams, usually they're memories of them in their prime, having fun. I suppose I cry because I miss them. But I take it as a message that they're ok.

It's odd what your dreams tell you about what is going on inside.

I remember a dream I had when I was in the process of getting a divorce (after 34 years of marriage) and facing a new life...

I was touring a house to buy. There was one open-air room, built above the house's porch, where I was so worried about the floor being unsafe to walk on that I didn't want to go into it. And there was another room that had no windows that I had to climb through a small opening to get to, that I immediately thought would make a good "mancave" for me (only I'm not a man)--a place to hide in.

I ended up at my parent's house (going back to my roots?) building a fence so I could keep my dogs there.

I had a friend who firmly believed that if you dream of someone who has passed that they are "visiting" you. I decided that I like that thought so I adopted it, too.

About one month after Rocket had passed (he was my bestest boy in the whole world, and I've had a number of really best boys), I dreamt that I was in a highrise building, looking out the window and I could see him coming. I ran to the door - there didn't seem to be stairs or an elevator, I just somehow got to the door, you know how dreams are. I opened the door and he ran in, I kneeled down (ya right, with these knees??) and he rushed into my arms and I was crying and I was squealing and I just kept saying to my husband "he's here, he's here, can you see him? He's HERE!" It was the best dream, it felt so real. I woke up still squealing "he's here!" I really did feel like he visited, and I was so grateful and happy. I'd give anything to have that dream again.

Because most often when I dream about my past dogs, the dreams are really stupid and sometimes awful. Like one time I dreamt that I was living back at home (at my mom's) and I had a couple of my old girls with me. We lived on a really busy street, and in the dream, I decided I just didn't want them anymore so I let them go. Like I would EVER do such a thing! Like I'd ever turn a couple of dogs loose on Main St, for crying out loud. Another time, I dreamt of another best boy, my lovely Rebel. And we were playing fetch, which was nice but we never did that. He just wasn't a fetching dog. And he didn't look a thing like Rebel but in the dream I completely knew it was him. So that's kind of confusing when the dog doesn't even look or act like the dog you knew but you know it's him. Sometimes I dream about a number of them. I've had as many as 10 Dobermans at a time and I'll dream that I'm taking them all for a walk. All of them. Offleash. And there's no way I can control all of them in the dream and I'm so worried about them getting on to the road or whatever, and again, I just think ok, I never would have taken them ALL somewhere offleash where I could not control them. That's crazy. The dream ends up being so stressful that I don't enjoy the visit if that's what it was.

Our 1st girl Tanya = lived 9.5 years & die full of cancer.
- it was heartbreaking, she was so perfect for us & really smart...our 4-legged baby.
- after she passed, this dad was crying for a few nights straight
- took me 2 years to not think about her, all the time / took Mom, 5 years to grieve

And one day Mom had a nice dream.
- Tanya was a Canadian girl, breed by old Mrs. England (Ontario)
- she helped start the Canadian Doberman Club, decades earlier

And wife and I Loved my Granny / plus we had her orange floral couch.
- here is the dream

Tanya was on our Granny's orange couch, getting Lov'en from her breeder...Mrs. Bea.
- we believe former Amy and some of the DT dogs in Heaven...all occupy that couch with our Tanya.
- I'm sure our dogs, meet up with the other angels, from this Forum
- so our old breeder, is now looking after her new clan
- until Mom and Dad, can take over the role

This HELPED the HEALING process - former Doberman, Memorial wall build.
- it makes me smile

- Tanya (1977 puppy) & Amy (2000 puppy)

As a nice surprise for Mom, I designed a "memorial Doberman wall" for our former girls.
Tanya (born 1977) and Amy - features include:
- Tanya's obedience trophy (1st place in class, after 18 weeks of daily training)
- two dog tags, from both former dogs
- Amy's favorite teddy, one of her babies
- Amy's special toy, a rubber moose (purchased at TSC)...and always hid from son's little dog Trevor
- Amy's urn/ashes & cast paw print
- Amy's last construction piece of scrap wood, for good chewing fun
- and finally a Doberman beanie baby, to complete the tribute

Incidentally, the vintage big ben alarm clock, was from my granny's egg house, on their farm...I've saved it for 50 years.
The old Northern Electric long snout telephone, was purchased at a rural garage sale 20 years ago.
- stored in my garage, until I could properly display the old antique (guessing from the 1920's)
Mantle top ledge is from a black walnut board, that was dried & planed 50 years ago...affixed to the hallway with a cut-off of white oak.
This saw milled oak plank was 60 years old, from the family farm & ends cut to length with Dads 1968 Pioneer chainsaw (w/visible burn marks)...power washed old grime off & small hardwood piece dipped in urethane (to keep the dried out bark intact).
Brick work is stacked slate (stone veneer) and PL glued in place.

This one construction project was a labor of love, and an honor to incorporate our fond doggy memories, into our newer living quarters...at the end of the hallway, right beside the master bedroom.







I have phoned AMY on a 1920's long neck crank telephone...connected to Heaven.
- and told her to find my friends dog (from here), and bring into her group
- so they don't have to be Sad, any longer...be a Best Friend, to clear them up

You did all you could for them and they know it. Don't doubt yourself. You loved them enough to let them go. That's completely selflessness.

I actually just had a dream about Coco last week. I was walking Sugar and my husband came running around the corner and yelled "hey look who's here". And Coco came running to mama smiling and nuzzled my ear. I loved that dream because it seemed so real and those are some of the things I miss so much about her.
