Additional Associations for Dachshund:


  • This is wonderful. I recently lost a dear friend of mine as well. My little Zouzou was the bravest and most fearless dog I have ever known. He was a little red dachshund with the sweetest temperament. He was always so loyal to me. When we met, he decided that I was his human. He decided this as if I had no say in the matter. That’s how stubborn he was. I didn’t know it then, but he knew that someday I would need him. From that point on, he never let me out of his sight. He never left my side. He ran beside me when we were both in good health, and then watched over me when I that health failed. He only loved me. Even when I mistreated him, or neglected him. He only loved me. I will never truly understand what that little guy saw in me. But when I lost him… I lost a piece of my heart. I lost one of the few things in my life that never judged or ridiculed me. I gave him love and a home with food and a bed. But what he gave me was so much more. He gave me purpose. I never felt better about the person I was than when he was with me. The way he looked at me. The way he forgave me for everything. The way he always believed in what I was and what I could be. The way he trusted me. From him, I learned to love myself. I learned to see myself the way he saw me. I learned that the life of an animal is something truly amazing. I learned that the love of an animal is something truly magical.

  • Gail – We lost our Patty in March of 2015. She’s visited me many times in my dreams since, and several times I’ve even felt her spirit while I was awake. I haven’t been visited by any of our previous dogs, but I hope they’re all having fun together.

    Dannielle – “Animals are in my mind are Gods & Goddesses- on Earth and in the dreaming that exists forever that we return home to after each stay in this world.” Oh my goodness, yes!

    • Gail that dream sounds like it was a beautiful communication from the spirits of your loyal canine friends. I have had dreams where my deceased rabbit has come to let me know he was still living on somewhere beyond this Earth & even a dream preparing me for the loss of my niece.

    • My beautiful Ghidra lived with me almost her entire 15 years, and died on her 15th birthday. I have been a psychic medium for many years, and because her last six months were horrendous, with a failing liver and anemia from free bleeding which increased until I couldn’t watch her suffer anymore. After she was gone, I prayed to my spirit guide Renee that she not remember me until I cross over, so she would just enjoy being free and healthy again. She died last April 19th, 2016, and a few months later I was still constantly grieving (even though I have two 7yr old rescued chi-terrier mixes, which I do love). I got the joyous gift of being allowed to see her on the other side, running like lightning with her friends who had passed before her, my son-in-law’s cocker Sadie and a chihuahua friend, Coco. I hadn’t seen that joy in years, and she was in a beautiful grassy field, romping and jumping with the others. I still miss and cry for her, but that small peek into her afterlife has soothed my soul. I never knew how much you could love an animal until I got the privilege of being her people-mom, even though I have had many other pets I loved and cared for throughout my life. She was special, and there will never be another like her. I am so glad for you, Gail, you got a rare gift! I wish every pet-parent could have our experience – much love to you!
