My Psychic Buddy Little Bear

I’ve been blessed my whole life with wonderful, amazing animals that have enriched my life experiences. This is my personal medium experience with my best friend’s dog Little Bear.

There is nothing little about Little Bear, but this gentle giant was one of my special buddies from the animal world that I loved dearly. Little Bear was bi-lingual – understood English and Spanish … and telepathy. I met Little Bear as a puppy before I moved to Italy.

This amazing animal knew me by name. Whenever I called, my friend would say, “It’s Miss Abigail on the phone.” He would go looking for me, only to look back at my friend with that face,  “No she’s not here what’s the matter with you, mom?!” Now you know what’s coming next right? I went there as I have done with my own animals – I talked to him on the phone. You see I used to brush him, babysit him, take him out (or should I say he took me out, all 150 lbs of him!). When he had an eye infection once, I soaked his eyes with warm tea bags. My friend was grinning from ear to ear shaking her head as she watched this big Rottweiler allow me to do this to him.

Then they decided to get Little Bear a buddy. What a pair an English bulldog and a Rottweiler made. This big dog loved and nurtured this puppy like it was his mother. You see, he was getting ready for Mr. Belvidere to take care of the family when he departed this lifetime.

A few months back, she called and we had our “coffee talk.” She’s a New Yorker who now lives in New England, and I’m a New Englander who now lives in California.

I said, “You know Little Bear visited me in my dreams last night. He came in my room and gave big wet kisses, woke me up and I petted him.” She started to cry,“It’s because he is not doing well and he’s saying good bye to you.” This woman has been my best friend and mentor for many years. Little Bear died 3 days later.

He was able to leave in peace in my friend’s arms, knowing this silly Bulldog named Mr. Belvidere with a big personality would take care of his people for him. I miss my big buddy in the physical sense, yet I know he’ll visit me every now and then.

    Irish setters are high energy dogs love the outdoors and birds not really good for city dwelling but little cockapoo’s are. They are happy just to go along with the flow pretty smart too.

    I only saw one Irish Setter in the last couple years here in LA. Not like the 70’s and 80’s. But when I was in Ireland, they were everywhere….
    Is that why? thanks.

    Hi Abigail,
    Yes, after volunteering for animal
    shelters for many years….you lose an appetite for breeding purebred because so many mixed breeds need homes.
    What profile ??????

    Good Morning Gina,
    Oh I have adopted many strays too! I have a calico cat now she came to me when I was alone last summer. The next door neighbors got new dogs and she said I’m outa here. LOL She’s become Seans cat. Good familiar helped remove some things for me. I know you know what I am talking about. Sean had a dream she was fighting a rattle snake the other night I asked who won he said that he did not know. Anyway I posted the new profile we spoke of on the birthday.

    Of course I do I wish that all that play money I won on the tables that night was real my purse was so heavy by the end of the night with chips. I should have been in Vegas LOL You were laughing at me cashing them in as I dug them out all the compartments in my purse….hehehe

    When I was a little girl, we used to have two horses, star and nugget.
    my dad sold them because he was in the entertainment biz and traveled a lot to Japan, it was too hard on my mom while he was gone, with three kids, etc.
    My dad had regrets later, We also had a ranch but he had to turn it over for funds. I hope who ever got our horses were good to them.
    Later on, I took equestrian lessons (no offense to anyone but I did not like it being that I was groomed for western for years) the scene, it was too stuffy.
    I went back to western and was happy. But then, I met Big Ben. My guides told me to not ride him, and I was not ready. 17 hands he stood. Well, he threw me off, I was in severe pain for months.
    I have been afraid eversince. How do you get over this? I miss riding!!
    There is a freedom I want back, but I am scared….thanks, Miss Krystal

    Yes, you have all of those kitties.
    You are a good mommy to them.
    I love how when you said you were looking for a new home, you had to include an extra bedroom so they could have their own. You are a great parent to them. You have a lot of boys, right?

    Well, many moons ago, back in the 70’s, I bred and showed (in obediance) Dobermans,as a hobby, not as an income.
    But, after seeing all of the animals that wind up in the shelters, mixed breed and purebred alike…..I stopped breeding Dobermans altogether.
    I work now with Doberman rescue, as well as the local shelter near me.
    An adopted animal is usually very loyal….they seem to know and apreciate the fact that you rescued them.
    Mixed breed dogs also make excellent therapy and drug law enforcement animals.

    Thanks Miss Krystal! Bowie is a little devil but she’s so very, very cute. I needed her and she came along at the right time.

  17. Miss Krystal ext. 9192

    Gina Rose,
    I figured…It may be too overwhelming for the animals…That is amazing your cat lived so long. I never had an animal make it to even 13. Lost the last one at six. My dad’s setter made it to 17, I was not as lucky with mine.
    Shattering. But I still love them and want animals around. Thinking of the next puppy coming into my life! 🙂

    Hello Gina Rose I use to raise, show & breed Siamese cats. I had one from the time I was a baby. I loved it when I had my cattery (cat house LOL) I had all 7 colors so beuatiful and smart they were the next pet story will be about my Lynx Point Zambucca and my Chocolate Point De’Saronao and the Ouiji board visitor that my oldest boy Levi broguht in …..The Siamese thing I’ve known to be a past life thing for me. I use to see the temples. Hope the readers don’t think I’m really cracking up now. Someday I’ll have my Siamese and my Shepard therapy dog when I have my own place. Hoepfully that is really soon !!Hey I can visualize it right now.

    Sorry for your loss. I have felt immense pain losing my dogs. I think getting another animal is the way to go.
    It was good you got Bowie. Otherwise, the pain just lingers on.
    I know this sounds childish, but whenever I get upset, I take a walk to the school near me, there is an area where they have sheep, goats, and now, there are baby goats. I can’t believe how just spending time with them makes me smile. I also think about the next puppy I will get, and that makes me excited, too.
    We need to experience rebirth with animals. —- too easy to miss and why go through that? Getting a new pet will help. It will not be the same animal, obviously, as every animal is different in a unique way (just like people), but you will still have the snuggles and love. We can learn to love them very easily.
    I am so sorry. However, I do know that Bowie is lighting up your life. Hugs, Miss Krystal

    It depends on the animals….if they are socialized correctly….then it’s ok.
    I would think it might be a bit tough on the animals to adjust to different commands and signals from all of the different care takers though, not to mention the animals having to adjust to a caretakers differing work schedule and hours……week to week.
    Animals usually do better with a routine type of care….being fed at the same time, same food day to day, same exercise time for good housebreaking habits ,etc…
    I really don’t know enough about this type of program though….

    The Siamese breed is known for longevity…..they can outlive most other breeds. That breed is also known for an eerie, loud, yowl noise that some say sounds like a wailing baby. AND….the Siamese breed is one of the few breeds that can be trained to walk on a leash like a dog.
    Chow Mein was a purebred choclate point… about a year old when I rescued him and took him home.

    wow Gina rose,
    I appreciate all of this. Someone I am close with is totally interested in this for themself and family…. to all work together. Family Biz type of thing, ya know…
    Last year, there were terrible fires here in southern california. Anyway, there is a special adaption for animals here in LA that had a lot of the pets that were victims from these terrible fires.
    So there were these two siamese kitten -sisters. My friend kept checking to see if the owners ever came back to get them, they were little itty bitty kitties, maybe 8 weeks or so. Well, after weeks, owners never came to claim them. So we picked them up and now they live with my friend. She is so happy.
    It was shocking to see all of the beautiful pets left behind from the fires. But there are good people in this area that found them all wonderful homes.
    We have a club here in LA called FLEXPETS lol and basically people share pets – for example, a dog could be at one person’s home one week, and then another person’s home the other week. They rotate. It’s like doggie and kitty dating lol-whatcha think about that???
    is it inhumane ? or entertainment? or one big happy family?? hmm

    Hi Phillip,
    I worked there, way back in 1977, when they were located at Rand Rd in Palatine, the highway it sat back off of was only 2 lane then, believe it or not….LOL….. they have long since moved I hear.

    I know save a pet sweety. You just connected to my heart so unless you tell me not to call you that, I will. It is so hard to lose a pet. Dr. David Hawkins who wrote “Power vs. Force” and spearheaded the research on kinesiology, said that the wag of a dog’s tail and the purr of a cat rates higher than most of humanity. He says that their gift to us is teaching us what unconditional love looks like. I must agree.

    It can be, depending on where you live…..
    I’m in the country….WAY OUT in the country…this little animal shelter is off a county two lane road, seven miles outside of the nearest town.
    I helped the county people set this small shelter up 3 years ago…they rely on donations, and donation money from adoptions.
    My ( middle )step-brother,Sean, is a big shot at a high end dog food plant, Royal Canin, 50 miles from here…they donate most of the food.This is a very poor rural area, so we are very grateful to them.
    We have a working relationship with the only two country vets in the area…they do the shots, spay/neuter, etc.
    Best way to gain info….stop in at a local shelter near you and ask questions….they will be delighted to help you and answer your questions….it’s a good way to get a realistic, close-up look.
    IF you are within your city limits it can be complicated X 10….,
    I would speak to your local city chamber to find out their particular city and county laws….including building and any fire codes as well.
    You need to understand the Dept, of Agriculture laws too….like…
    You can only room so many animals depending upon the space you have to work with, they MUST be vaccinated , and you must show traceable records to prove the age, vaccinations, sex, spayed/neutered or not, etc. …..the animals MUST be fed and some may have special feeding needs, watered, and have clean runs,
    It can be very complicated BUT very rearding at the same time.

    Gina Rose,
    I know you are talking shelter. But is it really difficult for someone to open a new kennel? If you know….
    Miss Krystal

  29. Gina Rose ext.9500

    I’m still very active with the one and only no-kill shelter in my area now….I’m a “sucker” for the dogs ( especially) and cats that nobody wants….the older ones, the crippled ones, the one with the torn ear….I always wind up with the ones nobody even looks twice at, at the adoption weekend shows.
    I take them, give them basic obediance training…my specialty is re-habbing abuse cases that fear-bite.
    Socializing them and giving them a reason to trust humans again, and a little basic training is normally all they need to make very loving and EXTREMELY LOYAL pets.
    I have alot of little buddies waiting for me when I cross over, including a couple of horses as well.

    Dear Phillip,
    When I was just 19 years old, many,many,many moons ago….I managed one of the largest no-kill shelters in the midwest named Save-A-Pet. It was a small place then, but has grown over the years.
    We had two, full brothers, chcolate point Siamese male cats come in,…. actually they had been dumped.
    I named them Chow Mein and Chop Suey.
    They were skinny, and very weak,… Siamese do not board as well as other cats due to respitory problems… I took them both home….Chop Suey did not make the first 3 weeks and died…but Chow Mein did make a healthy comeback.
    What a character Chow Mein was, he was big for a Siamese, 17 lbs….he ruled a house,( with a loud piercing YOWL and swagger)… he even ruled over the 4 Doberman Pinschers I had adopted,( abuse cases that I took home and was trying to socialize).
    My daughter was only 2 years old when Chow Mein came to us. Chow Mein died at the ripe old age of 24 years old.Siamese can be very long lived…
    We cryed our hearts out…my daughter, an only child, then grown up, described Chow Mein as the “brother” she grew up with and shared childhood memories with.
    She would walk him on a little leash , even dress him up in doll clothes, ( I drew the line at lipstick though)…and Chow Mein LOVED the attention!
    He would jump up on my bed, do three turns and sleep next to me.
    A week after he crossed, I actually felt him jump up on the bed, do his customary three turns, and plop down….and I knew it was him and his way of saying good-bye.
    I still miss him….what a personality he had….but I’ll see Chow Mein and all of my other friends the next and final time I cross over….and what a joyful re-union it will be.

    Thank you Gina Rose! She was a very good dog and took care of me when I was little. I’m happy she had such a long, happy life. My dad put my Grandma’s rosary beads around her neck so I know she’s in a better place 🙂

    Dear Jen,
    I’m so sorry about Bailey’s crossing over…..My animals were , and still are, very special to me… truly is like losing your best friend when they cross.
    Hugs )O(….Gina Rose ext.9500

    My childhood dog Bailey passed away a few weeks ago. She was the most loving dog (a Cancer we did her astrology!) When I started getting migraines she would sit with me and lick my hands til i felt better. My new kitty Bowie on the other hand is a little fireball. I had a reading done with Verbena about little Miss Bowie and she told me the greatest thing:
    “Bowie’s morning ritual of walking around your bed and licking your face is more than an act of love, she’s clearing your space of bad energy. For her it’s like chasing a mouse toy… fun, easy and sharpens her predatory instincts and skills.”
    The kitty chose me. When my friend and I went to go pick one from the litter, she came right up to me bit a button off my sweater then passed out on my arm 🙂 I wrapped her up in a little pirate bandana and took her home.

  34. Phillip# 9485

    My older sister is a vet. I lived in a one bedroom apartment for 20 years, above her clinic. My younger sister worked as an assistant there, so there is a closeness with us. People used to bring in cats all the time to be euthanized. Either they would do it for financial reasons, or they would do it for convenience. My sister would take their money and then heal the cat if it was an issue. I can tell you that there were never less than a half dozen cats on every floor of that clinic over the 20 years I lived there. I have always wanted to own a pair of Abyssinians from the same litter, but finally resigned myself to a life of strays and crippled. At this moment, my cat, Rocky is sleeping under my blanket on my bed. He was born with 2 crippled front paws, and he is precious to me. He does just fine. The point is: While I lived in the clinic, I saw many cats come and go. We would find homes for some, we would take some home and some would die just from old age. They would always be replaced with new homeless cats. It taught me that love goes to the same place and that place is source. I was told years ago by a very wise woman that I could have learned that lesson in no other way.

    This was so touching. Thank you, abigail.
    I have known bi-lingual dogs. It’s sad when you have studied five years of spanish, and the dog understands it better than you do lol
    These lovely animals touch our hearts. We are so lucky to have them in our lives.
    It’s sad when they leave us. But nobody can take our memories away. And just think of the lovely animals out there who need a home right now!
