Spirit Messages from Little Betty Sue the Dachshund


 In October,  I received an email from Erin who was dealing with the grief of losing her precious Dachshund Betty Sue. Betty Sue provided me with some signs that she's around her mom today in spirit. Pets will often convey things to me that they experienced in their daily lives, just as people in spirit do.  
  When people send me photos and the name of their pets, and any question they want to know, I usually can connect with them. Spirits share information about their lives and habits that only they and their pet parents know- it's different for every one of them- and that's how they confirm their identity. 
   When I saw Betty Sue's photos, they brought tears of love to my eyes. She has such a deep love for her mom and dad from spirit. 
   Erin graciously allowed me to share this blog post so that others would have an idea of how their dogs and cats can also communicate.  -Rob


EMAIL FROM ERIN ABOUT BETTY SUE THE DACHSHUND

Hi. I am almost finished reading your book Pets & the Afterlife. I just lost my little dachshund, Betty Sue, about 2 weeks ago & am having a very hard time. She was my best friend for over 15 years & saw every important day in my life. I am still feeling extremely guilty over the decision to put her to sleep. Can you let me know if she has any messages for me? I have already found a lot of comfort in the words from your book & look for signs everywhere now that she is still with me. Thank you in advance.

MESSAGES I RECEIVED FROM BETTY SUE:
I told Erin "I can sense the fiesty-ness in her and the intense love she shares with you. She's showing me that she followed you everywhere. She still does!
   The main thing is to not feel guilt about helping her pass. She was ready. She's telling me that she let you know because she wasn't eating... is that right?  As a Dachshund dad, I know that there's nothing that keeps a Dachshund from their food... but that was a sign from her.
  I  mentioned that Betty Sue will show up from time to time, in things that remind Erin of her, or Erin may hear her (like a faint bark)... or those cute little feet/nails running across the floor."

 CONFIRMATION FROM ERIN:
You are 100% right. Betty Sue fought kidney failure for 13 months. I gave her fluids twice a week since the day she was diagnosed. She had recently started losing weight rapidly & lost a pound & a half in just 2 months, which is a huge amount considering she was only 8 pounds to start with. She refused to eat the last 2 days of her life.

     I heard a faint bark during the night, the same day that she was put to sleep. Our other dog growled all night long that night which was very unusual. The next morning I found a big pink flower with a yellow butterfly sleeping in it.   I felt like that was kind of a sign.

   Then I downloaded your book & was shocked to read the similarities between your dachshund's last days compared to Betty's: the similarities were almost identical! Then I saw the pic of the little black dachshund in your book & thought that was another sign! Of course then I read the rest of your book about all of the signs that spirits send to us to let us know they are still around. I couldn't believe how many signs I had seen!
  
  Erin also confirmed that Betty Sue was fiesty and called her "Sassy!" 

FOLLOW UP SIGN FROM SPIRIT - Spirits can also make things happen to help us - including making a photo that we're searching for appear in front of us! This email from Erin on Oct. 27 gave another proof that Betty Sue is around her:

Erin said "I've included yet another picture of Betty Sue. I looked everywhere for this picture a few days ago but couldn't find it. Today it popped up in 'Memories' on Facebook. It's a picture of Betty Sue with her head hanging out of the window of our truck, ears flapping in the wind, while we're 4-wheeling on the beach at the Outer Banks. We try to go there every year on vacation & she went every time. She just loved going to the beach & digging in the sand. I'll always miss her sassy self."

Spirit Dog's "Yellow Duck" Message

Little playing with her yellow toy
Dogs provide images, barks, noises, and so many other signs to let us know they're still around us. In early December I received an email message from Wendy about her dog "Little." She wanted to know if Little was okay and still around. That's when Little confirmed she was by showing me one of her favorite toys.

WENDY'S NOTE
Little's Duck toy!
Wendy said, "She was diagnosed 11-17 with Lymphoma & we let her go 12-2. Devastating to say the least. I could go on & on...she was cremated, and vet staff made paw print molds. We had her euthanized at home."

LITTLE GIVES ME A SIGN
I wrote Wendy and told her that " Little is showing me a yellow toy ... it looks almost like a ball, but could even be a yellow Duck. Do you have a little yellow duck, or a yellow ball in the house? She tells me that she was fixated on it (it may not be a toy - it may be something you had , like the yellow ducks in the bathroom). - anyway, she's going to be around and give you signs.

WENDY'S CONFIRMATION
Wendy sent a photo of Little's Toy Basket and in the basket was a squeaky yellow Duck!
She said "I think u just made my boyfriend Jeff (of 14yrs)--a believer. Thank u! U made our day! And many days 2 come.   Now when that toy turns up mysteriously, we'll probably Keel over!"

A Touching Hospital Story: Santa grants a final wish to Terminally Ill Boy

Sam Venable. Cred. Knoxville News
This story appeared earlier this month about a special engineer who has played Santa in Tennessee.
He was called to the side of a dying little boy and this story will touch your heart. This is what spirits want is to be like.

Sam Venable: Santa grants a final wish 

Eric Schmitt-Matzen looks every bit the part of Santa Claus.
His 6-foot frame carries 310 pounds, leaving “just enough of a lap for the kids to sit on,” he says with a gentle Kringley chuckle right out of Central Casting.
No fake facial fuzz for this guy. Schmitt-Matzen’s snowy beard is the real thing, albeit regularly bleached to maintain its whiteness. His shag is so spectacular, in fact, it won first place in the “natural full beard, styled moustache” division of a 2016 national contest sponsored by the Just For Men hair products company.

There’s more.

ABOUT SANTA SAM
He’s professionally trained. Custom-tailored in red. Was born on Dec. 6 (that’s Saint Nicholas Day, of course; are you surprised?) Works approximately 80 gigs annually. Wife Sharon plays an authentic Mrs. Claus. His cellphone, with a “Jingle Bells” ringtone, continually counts down the days until Christmas. Even his civilian attire always includes Santa suspenders.
The whole shtick is designed to spread joy and have fun.
Which it does – except for the role he played several weeks ago at a local hospital.

GETTING THE CALL 
“I cried all the way home,” Schmitt-Matzen told me. “I was crying so hard, I had a tough time seeing good enough to drive.
“My wife and I were scheduled to visit our grandchildren in Nashville the next day, but I told her to go by herself. I was a basket case for three days. It took me a week or two to stop thinking about it all the time. Actually, I thought I might crack up and never be able to play the part again.”
This is what happens when a terminally ill child dies in Santa’s arms.
“I’d just gotten home from work that day,” recalled Schmitt-Matzen, 60, a mechanical engineer and president of Packing Seals & Engineering in Jacksboro.
“The telephone rang. It was a nurse I know who works at the hospital. She said there was a very sick 5-year-old boy who wanted to see Santa Claus.

AT THE HOSPITAL 
“I told her, ‘OK, just let me change into my outfit.’ She said, ‘There isn’t time for that. Your Santa suspenders are good enough. Come right now.’ ”
Schmitt-Matzen got to the hospital in 15 minutes. He met the lad’s mother and several family members.
“She’d bought a toy from (the TV show) PAW Patrol and wanted me to give it to him,” he said, voice growing husky. “I sized up the situation and told everyone, ‘If you think you’re going to lose it, please leave the room. If I see you crying, I’ll break down and can’t do my job.’ ”
Nobody entered with him. They watched, sobbing, from a hallway window in the Intensive Care Unit.
I’m now going to relay what happened next, just as Schmitt-Matzen spoke to me. Space does not allow inclusion of the numerous pauses he took while struggling to maintain composure:

MEETING THE BOY
“When I walked in, he was laying there, so weak it looked like he was ready to fall asleep. I sat down on his bed and asked, ‘Say, what’s this I hear about you’re gonna miss Christmas? There’s no way you can miss Christmas! Why, you’re my Number One elf!
“He looked up and said, ‘I am?’
“I said, ‘Sure!’
“I gave him the present. He was so weak he could barely open the wrapping paper. When he saw what was inside, he flashed a big smile and laid his head back down.
‘“They say I’m gonna die,’ he told me. ‘How can I tell when I get to where I’m going?’
“I said, ‘Can you do me a big favor?’
“He said, ‘Sure!’
“When you get there, you tell ’em you’re Santa’s Number One elf, and I know they’ll let you in.
“He said, ‘They will?’
“I said, ‘Sure!’
“He kinda sat up and gave me a big hug and asked one more question: ‘Santa, can you help me?’
“I wrapped my arms around him. Before I could say anything, he died right there. I let him stay, just kept hugging and holding on to him.
“Everyone outside the room realized what happened. His mother ran in. She was screaming, ‘No, no, not yet!’ I handed her son back and left as fast as I could.
“I spent four years in the Army with the 75th Rangers, and I’ve seen my share of (stuff). But I ran by the nurses’ station bawling my head off. I know nurses and doctors see things like that every day, but I don’t know how they can take it.’”
In despair, Schmitt-Matzen was ready to hang up his suit. “I’m just not cut out for this,” he reasoned.
But he mustered the strength to work one more show.
“When I saw all those children laughing, it brought me back into the fold. It made me realize the role I have to play.
“For them and for me.”

What is Rob Gutro's "Ghosts and Spirits" Book About?




Ghosts and Spirits 2016 has purple border
Whenever I give talks people ask me the difference between the books I've written. So, here's the answer about my first book (which I just updated and revised in 2016). Available in paperback and E-book on Amazon.com. 

QUESTION: What is Your "Ghosts and Spirits" Book About?

ANSWER: This is my first book that sets the foundation of defining the difference between Earth-bound ghosts and spirits (not Earth-bound). (It was updated in 2016) As a scientist I believe that energy is the foundation for the afterlife and explore that in these pages, but provide personal stories of encounters with both Earthbound entities and those who have crossed over in the 1st Section of the book. You'll read about how to protect yourself, and cross ghosts over. 
  In section 2 you'll read some of my moving and personal experiences (that you can also experience). My father passed as I was writing this book and provided an amazing number of signs during the week of his services that are included in one amazing chapter. The signs he provided are similar to those others provide when they pass.
  In section 3, you'll visit many haunted locations where I confirmed the ghosts I sensed actually lived there!  You'll see photos of faces of ghosts that haunt the Bird Cage Theatre in Arizona and a home in Savannah, Georgia where a very nasty civil war era general lived and accidentally killed his young daughter.
  This is a great way to develop a foundational understanding of the paranormal and what happens after our physical bodies pass.

Author Revises "Answer Guide to the Paranormal" Book



Big Announcement in time for the "Spirit" of the holidays!  
I've updated, revised and added 6 new chapters to my 2nd book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead." 
- Available on Amazon.com and CreateSpace.com. 

RELEASE: 16-03   
Author Revises "Answer Guide to the Paranormal" Book  
WASHINGTON -- Author and paranormal investigator Rob Gutro has updated, revised and added 6 new chapters to his second book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead: An Answer Guide to the Paranormal."  The book sports a new cover that contains the haunting face of a female ghost encountered during an investigation.

"I wrote this as an answer guide to all questions about the paranormal," Rob said. "Every chapter contains experiences that address questions such as what happens to suicide and murder victims and so much more." Readers will experience a "Spirit Treasure Hunt" of messages that prove a spirit was with all the members of his family and prove he didn't commit suicide. They'll meet the ghost of John Wilkes Booth and see photo proof of a ghostly face from a "Double Murder Ghost Investigation."

"Lessons" was originally published in 2012. The 2016 version includes six new chapters and all other chapters enhanced and the book reformatted. New chapters address a Double Murder Ghost Investigation; Angels, Demons and Dark Entities; 3 Ghosts of Christmas Past and John Wilkes Booth's Ghost, Baltimore's Haunted Book Escape, A Band of Spirits; and Spirits all in the Family.

Readers will learn the difference between a ghost and a spirit. Learn lessons spirits want us to know to live better on Earth. Experience cemeteries, battlefields, historic places, spirits of suicide, murder victims, angels and demons, poltergeists, ashes, slow death experiences, how to protect yourself, reincarnation and how infants and animals pass messages to the living. You'll even explore many haunted locations around the U.S. and beyond.

The author is a medium, paranormal investigator, scientist and dog dad. He provides proof that people and pets do communicate with us from the other side, whether as an Earth-bound ghost or spirit. He is a medium with Inspired Ghost Tracking of Md. He sketches out what ghosts look like who are haunting private homes and has received many confirmation from homeowners. He also volunteers with Dachshund and Weimaraner rescues.

Earlier in 2016 he published his fourth book, "Pets and the Afterlife 2," a follow up to Amazon's best-selling "Pets and the Afterlife," where readers will learn how dogs and cats have the intelligence and ability to send signs to the living after they pass. In August, he republished an updated and reformatted version of his first book called "Ghosts and Spirits." The author's four books have all reached best-seller status in Amazon.com's supernatural category.   

Rob maintains a weekly blog, Facebook and Twitter pages, where he writes about paranormal topics, and where people can share their stories or find other resources on the paranormal. All of his books are published by CreateSpace, Inc. and available in paperback and E-book on Amazon.com: http://tinyurl.com/hp92st7.

The author has been featured in the Washington Post, MSNBC, WBZ Newsradio Boston, "Coast to Coast AM" syndicated radio with George Noory, Paranormal TV's "Do You Believe," Paranormal Underground Magazine and U.S., U.K. and Ireland paranormal radio programs and many others.
