The Other Side of Air
First Published in The Santa Barbara News-Press
Jinx was a 16-year-old Jack Russell terrier. He died in April of 2017. In March, at the end of his life, his person asked me to speak with him. She wrote, “Jinx is very old. I don’t have your gift, but I am sensitive to my critters. Jinx is giving me mixed signals. I want to know how he is feeling in his advanced age.”
During our session, Jinx said, “I am feeling a little more distant lately. There seems to be more sunshine on the other side of air. It’s a soft feeling. Dogs are running there: some small Jack Russells like me and a big one too. The big one rolls in the tall grass. He is smiling. I also see a man that says he will take me walking. He is throwing a stick.
“Sometimes I feel happy inside of myself,” Jinx continued. “My mom is sweet and tender to me. She has been feeding me really well. I have times where I am happy in my legs. But when I am feeling sick, I feel confused on what time of day it is. I love my life, but I am spending more time in the sunshine on the other side of air. It is getting close to that time where I will cross the bridge to the other dogs. That rainbow bridge is really fun-looking. I would love to see grass. I am not scared because there is love in that world. I know you can feel your mom hugging you there because sometimes when I am in that world, I have mom hugs and dad smiles. It’s like a peaceful place. When I am awake, I get anxious and my legs start to get anxious too. I think I need to eat a lot of chicken pieces and lick some ice cream. That would be great. Maybe I could eat a hamburger.”
The reason why Jinx’s person was sensing mixed signals is because the veil between dimensions was starting to blend. When Jinx would awake from his dreams or from visiting the afterlife, he would seem briefly renewed, and then, as he stayed awake, he became more aware of his pain and decline of health.
Jinx died peacefully a few weeks after our first conversation. A week after his passing, I connected with him again.
He said, “Tell my mom that Heaven is really beautiful. I can run fast again, leaping over the couch in our living room and spin around. My mom’s dad is here. He met me over the bridge, took me in his arms, wrapped me in a blanket, stroked me like my mom does and said, ‘You are home, Jinx. You are not sick anymore.’ Just then, full of energy, I got up, ran outside and all around the grass. My breathing is really easy now. My mom’s mom is here too. She kisses me, makes sure I eat well, and brings me water. We have been on beach walks! I want to tell my mom that I am relieved that I am not in that body anymore. It was dying on me. Now I am all my spirit and all the love my family
has for me. I am still with her. I visit all the time. I sit on the couch with her and snuggle up beside her. I prance into the kitchen with her and sometimes I sit on the passenger seat of the car. I love it here. I had the best life with my mom. I still feel her here. I don’t feel I am missing her, because we are all one.”
We often struggle when our loved ones pass over, but they have transitioned to a world filled with love. Our loved ones will visit us in spirit, placing a memory in our minds while wrapping their spirit around us. Oftentimes that memory comes with intense emotion — love, laughter, joy or sorrow. The mind may have a hard time understanding it and fall into a sense of longing. Take a moment to be present when you are overcome. Speak out to your loved ones and then notice how you feel. You just may feel a comforting love surround you — a visit from what Jinx calls “the other side of air.”
This is Caesar. He died 1/8/19 at the age of 13.
On April 6th 2019 I spoke with Caesar from Heaven.
After our session, on a form where I ask if there are any quotes from our session that his person wants to share with my readers his mom wrote:
“There was so many. He can do my skip dance, which was funny because I would always sing and dance with him.
His pain was over instantly, I needed that confirmation because I thought we made a wrong decision.
He had feeling of love, fun, and play and was ready.
He doesn’t need his toenails cut, he hated that!
He is never leaving me,He is my guardian💜 and he had a super cool life and his loving on us all the time and loves us and is with us all the time.
I have peace knowing that he is okay and with the 2 most important people in my life, my Mom and Dad. I am so glad I connected with him, I was so worried that we made a rush decision and now I know we didn’t. And to know that he is with me, guarding me, and loving me from above is just so comforting. I miss him every day, but we will all be together eventually💗”

This Sydney. We spoke on 3/22/19 . He went to Heaven later that day. He died at 18 years old.
He said before he died, “I don’t really need this body anymore. Mommy its ok to let me go. Think of it as an adventure. It is sad, but it’s also love. I have been loved. I have been really loved and I have loved my mom. So, it is ok.”
His mom (person) writes after the session: I needed to understand the right thing to do for my little man. Laura helped him tell me what was wrong and what he wanted. I had no doubt after the conversation what I needed to do. He was much braver than me. He had a great meal with the things he mentioned in talk and he left on his new adventure. I am grateful for Laura’s loving and gentle way of talking to him. When she was talking to him I saw him reacting so I knew what she said was true.
Filson and his people had a memorable moment the other day. His person wanted to know how he is feeling and if he is getting ready to transition to Heaven.
But Filson had another agenda! He started our session by sharing that memorable moment with me. They even caught it on camera!
It’s so important to play with your animals! It doesn’t matter what age they are. Make sure you take the time to have fun!
On Tuesday, I spoke to Filson a 14-year-old yellow chow from Free Soil, Michigan. The first thing he said was, “You know I have had an awesome life.
I saw an eagle fly over my head!
The smell of the wilderness is part of my soul. I got that from my mom. She embodies nature. I am very lucky in love.”
Later in the session he says,
“This world is beautiful and awesome. Something created it. So, when I die, I am going to the place that created this world, so I am not worried.”
The next day his person sent me a video, taken the day before our session, of an eagle flying of Filson’s head and the family dancing around Filson singing “bird”. It was a joyous memory for everyone.
These are two clients animals Maki and Mr. Bacon. Their people contacted me so that we could talk to their dogs after the passing of their cat Mae Mae.
This is Maki. He is 16 year’s old.
Here are some of Maki’s quotes from our session:
“Sometimes I feel Mae Mae around me in a strange way. Like out of the corner of my eye I will see her walking or sometimes I feel her like a warm breeze on me. Oh, you think so? Do you think that when I die, I will have sunshine inside of my soul? You think I have sunshine?”
“Well I love to be around my people, and I love it when they talk with me. I also love it when they hold hands in front of me.”
Maybe what we can talk about is … ok this is very important because I thought about this before and I want this to be known. When I die, I do not want to go to the veterinarian. I don’t want to go. I think that I should just go naturally, or someone should come here and shoot me with a dart… Then I want to go naturally. Well if I have to go, I want to have a fresh blanket that smells like our detergent and I want to have mom and dad there and no one else. No one. Ok?
This is Mr. Bacon. He is 10 years old
Some of his quotes from our session are,
“Sometimes when I go pee, I feel like I pee a lot. Do you notice that? I am like whoa. Urine keeps on coming. No, it doesn’t hurt but it does keeps coming.”
“Yeah. Mae Mae dying was extremely sad. I think that her death was traumatizing for all of us, but she comes in my dreams all the time. She says I am going to come back and there will be two kittens. She said two kittens in the spring. That is what she told me, and she said you can’t put me in your mouth. I told her I wouldn’t. yes. “
Their Human Wrote After The Session:
Laura is so intuitive and I love her communication style with our animals; There is a lot of humor and grace. We did a phone session and its remarkable to watch how the animals behave when she is talking to them.
We originally did one session that I gave to my husband as a Christmas gift a few years ago. It was such a good experience that we decided to reach out to Laura again to talk with our dogs about the recent passing of our cat. This was a wonderful experience to help us all talk about it together.
The transcripts are awesome; There is something so happy about the conversation, so its nice to be able to go back and read again. I have recommended Laura to all of my friends with pets.
Laura, you have such an amazing gift! Thank you for your thoughtful interactions.
March 5, 2012 I asked all my animals, “What is love?”
Joey my cat from Heaven said, “Love is respecting your body, mind, and spirit.
Pure love is to believe in yourself and then having discipline to rise to your fullest potential. When you believe in yourself and rise to your fullest potential then the stream of love flows so strongly that you have the power to change the world.
The stream of love will carry you where you need to be. In purity, discipline and love are the same. People and animals who reside in love not only want to relieve themselves of suffering, but they also desire to relieve others of their suffering.
You must take care of your body, your mind, and your spirit. I am with Maia my sister in love. Here we shine the essence of love to our family on earth. We help others to reside in love.”

This is Mattie.
She died August 8, 2018 at the age of 17.
Mattie says from Heaven, “I am young again. I am the kind of young that cannot slip on the floor. I can see really well and I can jump up on the sofa.
I saw Jazzie (‘sister’ dog who passed away last year)
first thing and we went running around in circles. It was so exciting to see each other. I have seen the cats too. The cockatiel is here too. She flies around and we are all together again. We are in family love.”
Laura has been a part of our lives for three years now since the death of our beloved dog 17 year old dog Gus.
She was referred to me by our vet (who had also used Laura’s services when having behavioral issues with her dogs) when I was completely bereft with grief and struggling with the decision to send Gus to heaven.
Laura immediately alleviated my concerns. Gus told her, yes the time was right. And, more importantly he reassured me he was happy.
During that first session with Laura when we could barely hear each other over my sobbing, Gus told her words that I have kept with me ever since:
“Mum, I am around you all the time and the simplest way to know that I am there is just talk to me as if I am. I mean where am I going to go?, our souls are stuck together in spiritual glue”
Those words have been such a balm for my broken heart.
My grief was profound. Laura became not only my Gus communicator but a huge support for me in learning to live with loss.
My husband was understanding but initially skeptical. After listening to the recordings of our sessions it didn’t take him long to realize whilst he couldn’t grasp how she “does it” he was blown away by the accuracy and the detail of the things she said about Gus and our lives. Now he can’t wait to hear the MP3s of our sessions!
We speak regularly. Laura talks to Gus along with deceased family members and friends which again gives us great comfort.
And now she is there for the next chapter in our lives. A while back Gus indicated he was ready to return to us in the body of a pup. Laura guided us through the process of finding the pup and preparing for his arrival.
Earlier in the year he – Squid – arrived. Now we talk to Squid about his new life with us and continue to talk to Gus, who is always here….
Today Gus said:
“I have to tell you I am filled with love and excitement about being back. I can rest my head on my mum and I forget what time it is and what body I am in. I just feel blessed to feel my mum again.”
We are so incredibly grateful to have Laura’s support, empathy and wise words and to benefit from her gift.
We live in Australia and only wish Laura was here so we could deliver a big thank you hug!
Want to hear what your animals have to say?
First published in the
Santa Barbara News-Press
My animals have never had a problem going to the vet. Sure, it’s not their favorite thing to do, but they stay calm and attentive. They don’t exhibit a high-level stress by panting, barking or meowing. They don’t shake or stiffen their body. They don’t refuse to go into the vet clinic or snap or bite while we are in there.
Let’s face it, veterinary hospitals are scary places. They have a strong sterile smell. Other animals are fearful. People do things to the animals that are unnatural and against animal instincts. Without realizing it, people are exhibiting dominant, somewhat aggressive, behavior by leaning over the animals, evaluating them, staring into their eyes and palpating their abdomen. They put cold things up against their heart and make strange faces while doing it. They stick instruments in places no one wants to hear about and swab their sensitive ears. They poke animals with needles that can make the animals feel pretty yucky for some time.
So how do we make these visits better for our pets? If you have an animal that travels well, bring him or her to the vet just for a visit. Let the staff give your pet treats and a warm welcome.
You can also talk with your animal. Explain to your pet what the vet is all about. Take a breath. Clear your thoughts and explain to your pet that a visit to the vet’s office is to keep your pet healthy. Something cold held to the body is to hear the heart beat to make sure it has a healthy rhythm. A light in the eyes is to gauge the pet’s vision. A needle is to pull blood to test how all the organs are working or to administer a shot to keep the pet healthy. A needle in the bladder is to see if the pet has an infection. And so on.
If your pet is at the vet’s office because of illness, tell your pet the doctor is trying to find out why he or she is throwing up or having seizures or whatever the ailment is. Tell your animal you know that the people act strange, but it’s to help your pet live longer. Tell your animal that if there’s pain anywhere to inform the vet over and over in his or her mind and to physically exaggerate the pain to let the vet know. If you are in the examining room with your animal, you can explain what is happening and why in real time. You can do this out loud or you can do it in your head, sending it to your pet’s heart center.
Remind your animals how to calm themselves. Tell them to lick, yawn, stretch, blink their eyes. Remind them they are OK. Tell them you like your vet and you trust him or her. Remind your animal he or she will be going home with you. Whatever diagnoses or news you hear, be sure to tell your animal either at the vet’s office or when you get home. Talk to your vet about something personal. What animals do they have? What do they like to do in their free time? Make them a real person instead of someone who is just poking and prodding your animal.
Even if the visit becomes chaotic, stay positive. If you are nervous, your animal will be nervous. Sometimes your animal’s relationship to the vet office is all about your attitude. Choose a safe and confident vet and your animal will learn to deal with a visit to the office maybe even enjoy it!

This is Bella.
She was 11 years old when she passed away.
She says during a session to her person,
“I want to tell my mom that I am fast as a ray of sunshine and I sparkle like light on flowers. I am a bee sometimes. I buzz around my mom like a bee. There is a grandpa man here who can take care of me and carries me around in his arm. He wears sweaters and likes to watch tv and takes walks outside. there is a garden here with tomatoes and there is a woman here who makes sure I am always warm and she makes me pieces of cut up meat and hands feeds me.
I want my mom to know that I help her often get calm. When she sits quietly and meditates I curl up in her lap and rest my head on her knee.
I run next to her and past her too skipping as I walk and dancing. I am happy here and I have miniature toys that I can play with stuffed toys and a basket I can sleep in where i can hide in and pretend I am a stuffed animal.
I want to tell my mom that she looks beautiful lately and I feel like she has a sense of calm that is being given to her. that she went through a bit of a hard time and now she is rising out of it. kind of like a tulip in a hard winter. and she is shinning and spirit is gifting her with energy and a feeling of lightness.
I have a desire sometimes to come back in life but I want my mom to be ready and I want my mom to know that I will be similar but just a little bigger. yes, and a little more round. I want to be a little hardy around other dogs.
but I feel I am dancing with the light and there will be a time where the light brings me back.”
Her person writes after the session:
I continue to have sessions with Laura about Bella because loosing Bella some years back was loosing my child. She is my heart and a part of my soul. I miss her more than words can express and loosing her left a wound in my heart that still aches with tears. Laura is my source of confirmation that Bella is here with me in spirit with her detailed messages from my sweet Bella. Bella’s messages are completely in alignment with my activities, what’s taking place in my life and much more. It’s astonishing as many of the things Bella said she would leave me, such as gifts, she did. Or Bella speaks of many things in Spirit that her and I did together here on earth. It is remarkable. I’m thankful for Laura and for her sharing her lovely gift with us!
This is Cobey. He died at 14 years old.
During a animal communication session with his person (mom) he said,
“I want to tell my mom that she was a very good mom to me. I felt always very loved by her. When I got sick, I didn’t always tell her. I didn’t want to be a bother so I didn’t always tell her until my sickness got too bad. I thought that I was just getting stomach aches after I was eating. I didn’t realize that I had anything serious wrong with me. When it got so bad, I told my mommy and she took me to the doctor. I feel like my mom was a really good mom. I felt like she paid attention to me and she spoke with me everyday and every day she pet me and told me that she loved me and asked me to help with the kids. I felt like I was her helper.
I understood that she didn’t have the time or the energy. Those children are a lot of work and just being in the house with them made me exhausted. I understood. I didn’t feel neglected. I felt like my mom was doing a really good job being a mother and one of the kids is very demanding. more demanding then the other one and i just want you to know mom, I think you are the best mom and you help the kids be really creative and smart and you help them think and make good decisions and i feel like you were a good mom and I didn’t feel like they stole time away from me because that is our life. We did it together. That was just our life and I loved our boys. They were my good friends and I felt loved always. I really did.
My last moments were very peaceful. I was not scared. I felt a prayer and a blessing my mom did for me and I died in the blessing. I felt her prayer for me and that opened the door for the angels to come and get me. When I was at the hospital, I dreamed a lot about home. There was a part of me that came home to my mom. There was a part of my spirit that was home too. Its ok mom. I had a peaceful passing.”
After our session Cobey’s person wrote: Laura is very spot on and convey the message very clearly. I was very surprised with all the info that my deceased pet told her because I didn’t tell Laura about them at all. This proves she’s really am experienced pet communicator.
I was also very surprised my deceased pet knew one of my sons is more demanding than the other one. Again, it’s spot on!!
I really highly recommended Laura to anyone across the world. I am from Australia and I would use her again in the future to find out if Cobey is ready to come back. Cobey did told Laura the answer and I like to keep it private :). So Laura, I’ll contact you again so I can talk with Cobey :).
Note from Laura: There are many things to point out in this reading. Some of them are: 1. We dont always notice the beginning of a serious illness because the animal at first doesn’t feel “seriously” ill. 2. Our animals know more about our lives than we think they do 🙂 3. Our animals do feel our prayers and our thoughts for them. Our prayers do help them. Our prayers are answered and there are beings in spirit that will come to help us and our animals. We have to trust in that. 4. When our animals are in the hospital they often dream of being home. If we think of them and send them love they feel it and a part of them feels the comfort of us and home. 5. When our animals die, they are very much still alive. If we are open to believing this, we will see signs of them.
This is Lucy. She died 10/19/13 at 14 years of age.
During a pet psychic session she said to me from the otherside,
“I want my mom (person) to know that I still hear her when she talks with me and sometimes I come and lean up against her legs and I also put my face up against hers and I want her to know that stress does pass. It does pass. It’s hard to know about everything….Just its hard to know about everything, mom. I want them to know that I love them. I do come in a hummingbird. Yes, I do. I want my mom to know that I reside in her heart. “
Her person writes: Laura spoke with our dog who has passed, our 11 year old dog, and our 7 month old puppy. She gave me great insight into the 3 of them. It warms my heart to hear from beloved, departed Lucy. I love all of my dogs, but she was one of a kind. Thank you, Laura!
Laura’s note: It’s important to know that are animals who have passed do visit us. Sometimes they come in their energy animal bodies creating a feeling in our hearts and a memory in our minds. Other times they come in hummingbirds, birds, butterflies…, wind, light…. This list is endless. Believe it when you sense them.
This is Yuki. He died on 07/20/16.
Yuki said from Heaven,
“I want my mom (person) to know that I was not scared. No, I was not scared because I couldn’t do it anymore. I was feeling really sick and had a horrible headache. My headache was overwhelming. My back was hurting and I couldn’t get up anymore. I was losing my mobility…
Mom, the one things that I want you to know is that love that we had is still here. I didn’t leave it. I am still in it and I am still around you. I really am still around you. I feel now that you don’t feel guilty, you will be able to feel me all the time and that will make you smile. Mom. I love you. smile we were perfect.”
His person writes: I had requested a reading because I had overwhelming guilt about making the difficult decision for euthanasia. After having it done, I was concerned that he wasn’t ready to go. Laura’s insightful information has helped me realize that it was time and Yuki was ready for his transition. The loss is sometimes unbearable, but he is at peace now. Thank you
Laura From Laura The Pet Psychic: It is common that people experience what I call “euthanasia guilt”. It is a powerful force that often times can be so heavy and debilitating that it literally stops our ability to feel the subtle feelings of love and messages of comfort our animals are sending to us from Heaven. I urge people to go back to that moment where they felt with out a doubt euthanasia was the best option and to remember that feeling. It is always hard to “play God” but it is a kind act that we are privilege to have the option. A choice that may have been our animals that we were open enough to understand and strong enough to help.
Me: “Do you miss Bean (our bunny)? Do you understanding that she died?”
Seamora (Blue and Gold Macaw) answers, “Yes, I understand. She went to Heaven like the cats did. She flew to Heaven with wings through the invisible sky.”
* Seamora is healthy. Her feathers will not grow back.
My sweet little Bean passed away yesterday 1/10/17. We all miss her so much. Even though I do what I do and know what I know my heart is broken. She was ready. Now she’s free in a Heavenly garden watched over by my grandparents and accompanied by all her cat and dog friends. She can kick up her heels again! I have felt her snuggling with me in spirit. Luca is the most sad. He takes these passings very hard. We are finding peace. More of the story soon…. * photo taken the morning of her passing.
This is Ginger. She is 15 years old.
She said during a session, “Yes, I had a good life. A perfect life in fact. I am sort the boss of the house. I mean what I ever I want I get and that is really cool for a little dog in a big household. I feel like no one should be afraid for me because I am not afraid.”
Her person wrote: My daughter and I reached out to Laura in a state of hopelessness when we discovered our Ginger was diagnosed with bladder cancer. Ginger is our baby girl and we have had her since she was 8 weeks old. Hearing she had cancer practically tore us but after contacting Laura we were able to get a better perspective on how Ginger was feeling. Laura is truly an inspiration and is so gifted. She simply cannot makeup or fake what she said to us throughout our reading. Thank you for communicating with our Ginger and for being so pleasant and kind.

This is Keno in the front and his brother Buster in the back. Keno passed away July 12, 2016 at 13 years old.
Keno says from Heaven, “When I was dying, I was grateful. I was so grateful. It was all I could think about. Just being grateful for the love of my mom and all the ways she lit up my world. I mean my mom always talked to me so calmly and she always explained things to me and she used to hold me up to her chest so nicely and I feel like I am wrapped in that love here.
I wanted out of my body. I was so glad my mom helped me. I told her she needed to take me to Heaven and she showed me how to get there. She showed me. There was a candle lit with rainbow energy.”
His Person writes: Dear Laura, Thank you so much for my session with Buster and Keno! I felt so much better after hearing from them, especially Keno, whom I miss so much. It is a relief to know that he was grateful to leave his body and that he felt wrapped in my love that day, because he certainly was. It’s amazing that he told you about the candle I lit because I had forgotten that detail.
I also love that Buster thinks I should take up “nature painting” and that even if I’m not very good, he thinks it’s important that I “work with color.” Who knew Papillons were such discerning art critics? Thank you again! xT
Note from Laura: Often times when an animal is at the end of their life, they tell their people that they are ready to pass. People then notice that it is time to help their animal transition but they do not realize that their animal has told them.
Also it is faciniating to me how many times the animals mention things/events that their people have done for them after they have passed, as if it was happening to/for them in Heaven. For-instance, Keno saw the light of his person’s candle in Heaven and that helped him to/in Heaven.
Animals also mention feeling their people stroke and kiss them even though they have already left their body. It is important to remember that we are still connected to our animals that have passed in deep and amazing ways.
During a pet psychic session he said to his person, “Life is a party and so is heaven and I’m ok mom. I love you…I am running here in these woods that has windy trail. I love it here. I am chasing birds and I am even bathing in ponds. I want you to know that I will bring back how refreshed I am to you. I can bring you a beautiful feeling. I can bring you love. I would like to come back (in life) again. I am thinking maybe I could be something fast and agile.. like a gray hound. I love being fast.”
His person wrote: When Zach told laura he wanted to come back as something fast like a greyhound, I knew it was him because we called him zippy all the time because he was fast as a youngster. It brought me peace knowing he was ok. My heart is slowly healing but he was my forever dog. And the loss is huge. Immglad he’s happy and I miss him terribly. Thank you Laura for giving me some peace and talking with Zach.
DIFFICULT NEWS ABOUT OUR PRECIOUS BLEW from founder of All For Love Animal Rescue. Scroll down to read what Blew has to say.
Many of you know and love Blew. Now Blew needs your love and prayers more than ever.
Over the last 4 years that AFLAR has been caring for him he has become the heart of our rescue. Blew had a hard life until AFLAR took him in.
From the day I rescued him after years of mistreatment I promised I would always take care of him. With the help of some amazing angels in the form of volunteers, donors, doctors and everyone who has fallen in love with this very special boy, this is what our rescue has done. Through mast cell and skin cancer we kept him healthy.
This last year Blew’s biggest dream came true when he finally was able to come home to live with his soul momma Debi, who fell in love with him 3 years ago. All of us were beyond elated that our boy was finally home.
It is with a very heavy heart that we must share the devastating medical news about our precious Blew. He has been experiencing some physical issues that we have been addressing during the last few months. Fatigue, weight loss and weakness. He was treated for low thyroid which helped a little.
Then his mama Debi alerted us that he had collapsed twice. We quickly got him to Dr, Russell, an amazing cardiologist at VMSG, where he was given an echo cardiogram which showed pretty severe heart damage, as well as congenital heart disease. He was also experiencing arrhythmia and tachycardia. He was put on medication to control the arrhythmia, and that was working well and his cardiologist was pleased. We thought we were on the path to a healthier and happier life for our Bubby.
But the lack of energy, diarrhea and weight loss continued. Dr Russell felt our next best course of action given his history of cancer, was an abdominal ultrasound. We scheduled that with Dr. Ortega at VMSG, and the news was not good. Blew has two large masses on his adrenal glands, one of which has already invaded the vena cava. This means it is most likely malignant and has probably shed cancer cells to the rest of his body, since that vein supplies blood to lungs, heart, and brain. We were stunned to say the least. Because of his heart condition, he is not a good candidate for surgery to remove the adrenal masses as he would most likely not make it through that surgery.
We have been struggling with what we can do for our precious Blew. We turned to renowned Pet Psychic and Animal Communicator, Laura Stinchfield so we could hear what Blew had to say. His words from that conversation are below. He confirmed what we all felt, that surgery is not the avenue we will go down. We will do all we can to make what time this angel-boy has left, the happiest, most loving, and pain free time for him, surrounding him with love of friends and family until he tells us it is his time. We don’t know how long that will be, there is no way to tell.
We ask that you send our Blew-Bear all your loving prayers, surround him with healing light, and help his mama Debi and all of us who love him, through this unbelievably difficult time.
We ask ourselves, how will we get through this? I will quote our volunteer coordinator, and my partner in rescue, Kathleen, in answer to this. “We will do what we always have to do; treasure the moment, fight to the last, let go when we have to, honor our lost loved ones by grieving, and live our lives in service and kindness, and love the best we can”.
We will continue to do everything we can for our precious Blew. Please keep him in your prayers, and know that he loves each and every one of you.

Excerpts from BLEW’S interview with Laura:
I want to tell my mom that its ok if I die now. because I have had a really special time with her and I have seen her fight for me and I have seen her sad over loosing me and that makes me feel special and I feel like i got what I needed in life.
When I breathe in it really hurts. Well its like my chest is less. Yeah its like I cant breathe in as much air as I used to be able too and also I have this problem of when I am walking my back really hurts. yeah my spine and sometimes I get really dizzy and I feel like I need to stop moving.
yeah. I want to live and be happy but I feel like I am not going to.
I dont feel like I will live a lot longer because inside of me I feel really tired. I feel like love is what I needed to know and now I can go to heaven.
I dont want help going to heaven now but I know in time I will need it and I know that I will soar really high because I can feel love and love is what makes you soar. I am not dumb. I know that dogs die. yeah I have known dogs to die before so I know how it works and if you dont feel love you feel lost or trapped but if you have felt love you soar really high.
I feel like I am not meant to be frail and old. I feel like I am meant to go soon.
I am thankful for my life and I am thankful that my mom has always kept track of me and has always known what is going on. I want her to know that its okay she wasn’t able to take me years ago. I am glad she took me when she did and I have had good experiences over the years. I am okay with my life path.
I like the idea of coming back to my mom again in another but only if she can have me from a puppy. I dont mind waiting in heaven because i have learned so much in life I know that my heaven will be filled with play time, love and good food. I know that a lot of people who have loved animals before have died and I am sure they will love me because since I have been in this rescue I have met a lot of people that care about animals and care about me and I know that this animal rescue has angels and I know that there is one family here and another family in heaven.
I think my mom will know when I need help because I will give her a sad look that tells her and an angel will hug her at the same time. It will be OK. I will be brave.
I want my mom to know that I love her kisses on my face. and the way she moves her nails in a zig zag down spine and her smiling at me. she loves to smile at me.
thank you mom for being my best mom ever. I love you.
I am just grateful and If I can feel better great. If not my mom will know.
tell her I love her. Such a wide graceful love. tell her that.
