Animal Companions [Aug. 7th, 2016|10:59 am]
Tony Grist
A website I've been reading says our animal companions don't enter our lives by accident but are souls (because animals have souls, right?) that have been especially assigned to us- and some of them accompany us in and out of incarnation through many lifetimes.  It seems they're not limited to incarnating in one particular species but can hop around between them- just as we can- and so the cat who keeps you company in middle age could well be the same "person" as the pony you rode as a kid- and the falcon you carried on your wrist in the 15th century.  I wonder about Marlowe. The way he follows me out into the fields- two mates going on an adventure- makes me think he could be confusedly remembering a former life as a hunting dog.

Maybe you're confusedly remembering a former life as a hunting dog? It seems a cruel joke to make our best friends die so young.

Well that's a possibility...

Everything has its allotted lifespan. I don't see any cruelty; things just are the way they are. Consider how much more complicated it would be if things were the other way round and our animal companions outlived us by decades

I love the thought of this. I love it much more than all that folderol about the Rainbow Bridge. IF there is a heaven and none of my animal companions are going to be there, I don't want to go either. Of COURSE animals have souls.
