She talks about her life review and that her dog that had crossed before she did, came and jumped into the chair with her. She was so happy to see her beloved pet and the loyalty between the two survived. What follows are stories from people who have had visitations from their pets. Enjoy!

It takes me 10 minutes for my heart rate to settle down while Morris then makes a tur
