'A Scratch'

by Samantha Lee
(Texas)

My dog died on December 29, 2011. He was a wonderful dog, and one of the most familiar sounds I always heard was him scratching at the back door waiting to be let in.

About a week after his death, I was sitting down at the kitchen table doing homework. Everyone else had gone to bed, so I was alone. Suddenly, in the midst of dead silence, I heard a scratch at the door. I turned, snatched the door open, expecting him to be looking back up at me with a thankful grin to be let in. When I noticed that he wasn't there, I slowly closed the door with tears streaming down my face.

To this day, I wish I could hear that scratch again and confirm that I had not dreamed it the first time.

Scratch is a wonderful share

I too can relate. I can still hear my Maximus bark sometimes when I am alone. He would stay up with me late at night while everyone else had gone to bed.

Knock, and the door shall be opened

You didn't dream it Samantha ... It was him coming home to visit, and let you know that although he's in Heaven now, he will always be there to watch over you

My Co Co went home to God 4 months ago today & she has visited me a few times

It sounds crazy but think about it, if humans can be "ghosts" and return, how would it be possible for our loving dogs to not have the same ability?

May God comfort you through this difficult time
