Experience description:  

My best friend, Paula, passed away suddenly on May 12, 2011.  On May 10, 2011, Paula told me that the puppies she was breeding were born, and to get ready for one in mid-July.  She was a dog trainer and breeder of Dobermans.  I had gotten two from her in the last 20 years.  Her daughter said that she had hand picked the one for me and it was the puppy with a crooked tail.   

When Paula died, her daughter took the puppies to her home and I took the sire of the litter to live with me.  This dog was a three year old rescue dog that was Paula's main dog.  The dog was very attached to her. 

Last week, the daughter came to my house to pick up my dog (the sire) to take to her home so she could have the father of the dogs there to sell the last two puppies.  She met (with my dog, Buzz) a gentleman interested in a dog right off of the highway on the way home and the man followed her to her home to see the larger of the two remaining pups.  The girl told me that she became uncomfortable with this man's motives because of some things that he was telling her as they were walking back to the area which she had housed the pups. 

The area where the pups were contained was air tight, and there was no possible way for the pups to get loose.  However, when she was there with the potential buyer, the pup that he was interested in was missing.  She looked and there was no sign of escape and surmised that the only way he could have escaped was if someone lifted him out of the area.  She was glad that this gentleman was NOT going to get the pup, but very worried about the pup's whereabouts.  She looked all day for the dog and did not find it.   

Later that night, about 12 hours later, she let my dog Buzz out, and he immediately ran away into the woods.  She looked all night and was unsuccessful in locating my dog.  About five am, her boyfriend called her and said that he is going to start looking at that time.  He indicated that he had been asleep, but felt strongly that her mother was telling him to get up and help look for the dog.  He lives about an hour away, but he came to look. 

First he went to the girl's house, looked around, and then left and drove the seven miles to the deceased's home.  As he was pulling in the driveway, it was shaded all the way up the drive except for one spot where light was shining down.  As he approached this spot, both my dog Buzz and the pup were standing back to back in this spot (like statutes).  Also, prior to this, my dog had to be kept away from the pups because he wanted to fight with them.   

There is no way that the pup got out alone and they had to cross many roadways and busy areas to get to the deceased's home.  How did the dog find the pup and how did they make it all the way there.  I think Paula did this.

The next morning, my mother came over and I was telling her the story and had a strong feeling that Paula was listening to what I was saying to my mom.   

I think that if it is possible for the dead to communicate with our realm, Paula would do it through the dog she loved so dearly. 

Additionally, we think that she did not want that man to buy the dog for probably good reason and the pup that ran away was the one she had picked out for me to have previously.
