Q&A: Do Pets Reincarnate?

One question that I get often is "Do dogs or cats (or any pets) reincarnate?" 

ANSWER: Yes, every living thing reincarnates. All living things including people and animals reincarnate. Every living thing has a soul, which is basically, the energy within, plus memories, personalities and knowledge.
   However, they typically all wait to come back until everyone they know in this life has crossed over.
    I've heard from some pet parents who lost a dog or a cat who have said after their pet passed away, they adopted another dog or cat, and that new pet shows some of the same habits that their pet who passed had! 
   So, people have wondered if their dog or cat had been reincarnated. The answer to that is "no."  What's happening is that the spirit of their late pet comes back and trains the new pet with some of the habits they had during their time on Earth.  That doesn't mean that the newly adopted pet is taught the "good" habits!
   For example, if your newly adopted dog turns over their food bowl when hungry, and your previous dog did that, your dog in spirit has likely taught the new dog to do that.
For more about pet spirits, read "Pets and the Afterlife" or "Pets and the Afterlife 2" by Rob Gutro, available in paperback and E-book on Amazon.com

Special Friday 13th Guest Blog: Haunted LA: A Rose Among Thorns

Today, Friday the 13th, I've got a special guest blog for you, written by an expert in haunted places in Los Angeles, California! Jenny Holt is a a freelance travel writer who has teamed up with a haunted hiking site to develop a guide covering the most haunted places in the city. They've covered places all over the U.S. too. You can check out her article here: http://backpackerverse.com/haunted-places-to-visit-in-los-angeles/

Here's Jenny's guest blog: 

Haunted LA: A Rose Among Thorns
Boris Karloff's house (when you visit the Rose Garden)

You can find haunted places all across America. Some of the best come from the older sites, places where you feel history and decay, some of them come from historic tragedies or tragic lives, and others come with a sprinkle of stardust. Like any other city, Los Angeles has its fair share of haunted houses and locations.

As someone who grew up on black and white horror movies, you might imagine that moving to LA was a dream come true. The most exciting thing of all, was to see the lots and locations where Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi strut their stuff. This meant the first place I went to was Karloff’s Rose Garden on Bowmont Drive.

The most iconic of Frankenstein’s monster actors, as well as playing Frankenstein himself, and the Mummy, Karloff was also a keen gardener. His rose garden was so beautiful several friends asked to have their ashes scattered there. He duly obliged and created one of the most peaceful yet haunted places in the city. This is not the only haunted place in LA though it is my personal favorite. Also check out the Linda Vista Hotel, the Silent Movie Theater, the Wax Museum and many other the most haunted places in Los Angeles.

Spirits Give Signs in Times of Stress

 Spirits have a way of giving us signs to let us know they're around in times of stress or uncertainty. Just look for the signs. Here's an example of a sign I got from my dog Sprite who passed, and how it alleviated my fear of heights at the perfect time. 

Sprite's butterfly
On July 8, 2013 we said a sad goodbye to our 16 1/2 year old dachshund Sprite. The week that Sprite passed, a yellow and black butterfly followed us around daily. Friends who read about Sprite's butterfly encountered the same kind of butterfly right after reading about it.

Two years later, when my husband and I were on vacation we went to a park with zip lines (because he's always wanted to do that).  I'm afraid of heights, (so I was stressed!)  but didn't mind trying it (that's what you do when you care with someone). There were 2 Zip Line routes, each with 7 zip lines. I think they were both about 150 feet off the ground.  

As we were going up the first Zip Line tower, I  was dealing with anxiety from my fear of heights. As we got to the top of the (open faced stairs) and to the tower platform, suddenly a yellow and black butterfly flew around my feet and lingered for a short time. I KNEW it was Sprite and I heard "don't worry daddy, I'm here to protect you." That gave me the courage to do all of the zip lining.

 What's odd is that it was the ONLY yellow and black butterfly we saw the entire day. All of the other butterflies were blue with black outlines on the wings, and one orange butterfly. There is no such thing as a coincidence.  This was a message from Sprite when I needed to hear it.

That's what spirits do. They send us signs to comfort us when we need it. We just need to be aware of what they are. (That's why I wrote the books "Ghosts and Spirits," "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead," and the 2 Pets and the Afterlife books. )
