When My Own Animals Die

I‘m delighted to share with you the perspective of Morgine Jurdan,
an Animal Communicator colleague of mine.

All professional Animal Communicators have to face and
work through the passing of their own animals.

In each instance, we bring to our own situation our very best efforts to
assist the animal and to handle our own grief.

In answer to your inquiry regarding how I personally deal with my own animals dying…

I spend time telling my animal friend the various ways I have appreciated having them in my life and the lessons I lave learned, so when they pass on, I have no doubt they know how much I have loved and appreciated them. Sometimes I create a book with photos and stories as I remember them.

My daughter’s dog Chetwin was at home when his time came and he needed assistance. He wanted to see some people in his life, including our daughter who was teaching at a camp about 3 1/2 hours away. So I put a beautiful blue bow he wanted on his neck, and took him around to see these people and know he really appreciated it.

Chetwin had been very ill and he wanted assistance and it was early spring and I took a nice blanket and we sat out in nature in the sun and I lit some rainbow candles and talked again how much he helped changed our family’s life at the vet’s office. Our vet gave him an anesthetic and he relaxed. She came to check and said he was ready and she would be back in a couple minutes.

After she left, a bee appeared buzzing around his head and he appeared totally under the influence of the drugs and asleep. It was too early for bees and I was surprised and told the bee he or she was very lucky. This was Chetwin’s last day and he was an expert bee catcher. In fact, we always worried he would be stung, but could never get him to stop biting at them. At that moment, Chetwin opened his eyes and caught the bee!! I will never forget that moment ever. I KNEW right then, the bee had appeared so Chetwin could have that Last Wonderful memory of his physical life!! It was so magical I just cried.

Morgine's dog, Rowan

When I adopted Rowan, a Sheltie, he had bent legs from poor feeding. Many years later, he suddenly could no longer get up and walk and told me he did not want to live this way. He wanted to pass on his own and did so, not eating or drinking for 10 days. I had him on several blankets and then plastic and towels under him which I would change a few times a day.

I knew Rowan was not afraid of death. I know he would live forever and I could communicate with him as I have my other animals. I asked Rowan what he wanted and how could I support him through his process. If feelings come up, I sometimes journal or meditate with the Divine and ask questions and let go, and answers would come in some form, either I hear it or someone says something or I read something.

I had been with him every day and the last day, Jerry and I had to leave for 2 hours to sign some legal papers and left him outside on all his blankets under to deck roof. It was raining lightly and birds were singing and Rowan loved standing in the rain, so we thought he would enjoy hearing it. I told him we would be back soon.

When we returned, I wish I had taken a picture!! It was if a Groomer had come while we were gone and combed his hair back. It was perfectly combed, I kid you not!! All swept back, his tail up in the air and his front paws stretched up like he was taking off for the sky!! He passed while we were gone and we had NO doubt it was a blissful passing.

I strive to live “in the moment” when my animals time comes near, the way they do. I know the time is precious and so when they ask, I stop and spend time with them. Often they want to be left alone for periods as well. I sing, play music, cry, meditate and follow my inner guidance.

I hope this answers some of your questions…
