American Bryce Bond was taken seriously ill and shortly after being admitted to hospital he underwent a NDE (near-death experience).
He remembered suddenly passing through a long tunnel toward a beautiful light and then...

"I hear a bark and racing toward me is a dog I once had, a black poodle called Pepe.
When I see him, I feel an emotional floodgate open. Tears fill my eyes. He jumps into my arms, licking my face.
As I hold him, he is real, more real than I had ever experienced him. I can smell him, feel him, hear his breathing and sense his great joy at being with me again.

I put my dog to the ground and step forward....

A very strong voice is heard in my consciousness. 'Not yet' it says. I scream out 'Why?' Then this inner voice says 'What have you learned and who have you helped?' I am dumbfounded
The voice seems to be without as well as within. Everything stops for a moment. I have to think of what was asked of me. I cannot answer what I have learned, but I can answer who I have helped.

I feel the presence of my dog around me as I ponder those two questions.

Then I hear barking and other dogs appear, dogs I once had. As I stand there in what seems to be an eternity. I want to embrace, and be absorbed, and merge. I want to stay. The sensation of not wanting to come back is overwhelming."

Bryce was also greeted by all of his relatives who had passed on before him. He experienced these loved ones as somewhat younger in form and face than when he had last seem them, healthier and happier.

He remembered racing backward through the same tunnel he had entered when it was time to leave and reviving in time to witness a hypodermic needle being plunged into his arm.
"I heard a voice say 'Welcome back.'
I never asked who said that, nor did I care.
I was told by the doctor that I had been 'dead' for over ten minutes..."

All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

An NDE account given by a lady called Mary.

"Horses and dogs were playing together and when they stopped they seemed to stare a hole through me and then went back to playing.

I was told they were checking to see if I was the person they were waiting for that had loved them while on earth."

And this account was given by a cat loving lady...

"I can reassure you that there ARE cats in Heaven. I met all of mine. (46 of them!)
Best wishes to you. See you 'up there' someday."

Those are very useful links, Noble Knight! It is always good to read of others who have had similar experiences.

Marie-Clare Hubert, a nurse who had a NDE was she was hospitalized with meningitis, went through a tunnel and emerged to find 'dead' family members, former patients and even long-dead pets.
Now she says, "I know for certain that we do meet our loved ones eventually. Its made me a better person and I try to do at least five kind things a day for other people."
- 'The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences' by Dr Penny Sartori

It (the beloved pet) is kept and looked after by someone here until the friend (owner) arrives into spirit life.
Often the dog or cat is the first one to greet the new arrival

Very many animals of course are living with the people they loved and who loved them in other spheres.
Our friend John has his spaniel, my husband's grandmother her dogs and horses, and we have just learned that Rudolf, our friend's cat recently passed over, is keeping our friend's mother company, an old lady who just preceded him into spirit life.

The knowledge that our loved and faithful friends are contentedly waiting to greet us is wonderful indeed. But this knowledge also forces us to take stock of our behaviour to all animals and perhaps think much more deeply about our personal responsibility for their welfare, evolution, individualisation and happiness.
And this in turn makes us take another look at what we eat and wear, for all creation is one, all part of the Divine Spirit and the Law of that spirit is LOVE

- Peggy Mason (From 'Tales of Two Worlds')

Roger was obviously a trifle timid of the puma, no doubt from his recollection of the same kind of animal on earth, but our host at once reassured him.
'You need have no fear, my son' he said 'See, she is without her wildness, and wishes harm to no-one.'
Ruth had stooped down and was stroking and playing with the lovely creature, which was as gentle as a lamb.
'She is not the only one of her kind here, by any means' continued our host, 'but their disposition is all the same - harmless and gentle.
You see, the two chief earthly factors are gone from all the animals in these lands - the need for food, which makes them prey upon others, and fear of both their own creature-kind and of human kind. Remove these two, and there you have the result. They are a great joy to us - and to themselves. Try for yourself, my son.'
Roger bent down beside Ruth and in a moment had lost his misgivings in stroking the puma's thick fur
- From 'More About Life In The World Unseen' recorded by Anthony Borgia
