If you were following my discussions today then you would know that my pet got hit by a truck and died very early this morning. Lunch time, i couldn't eat well and my Uncle told me I should accept the fact that Grumby is no longer with us and I should be thankful to my pet because he said probably he saved me or one of my family members from any serious accident. It's an old belief that when a pet died from an accident, a family member is saved from that mishap. I didn't believe my uncle and i just ignored him because it was too painful for me to talk about my pet. Then when i was in the bedroom sitting on my bed while watching tv, i suddenly heard a broken glass crashing right next to me on the floor. When i looked it was the fluorescent bulb which was right above my head. It was a little strange and is still is a mystery to me until now, how it fell from the ceiling and it didn't fell on me but right next to me. Could it be that my dog sacrificed his life for my own? Among my family members, Grumble was closest to me. I was like his mom. So now i'm weeping again because of the idea that he saved me from an accident today.

That's true.. My dad had a sudden heart attack then suddenly my female dog, sakura just suddenly yelped and howled next thing we know my dad was standing up well with no signs of distress..Instead, Sakura was laying flat on ground--Lifeless. I am indebted to my dog and she was really close with my Dad.

it was the first time for me to hear such belief. it may be true or it may be not. no one can give us guaranteed answers. the only thing that we can be sure of is that in his own little way, Grumbie had been an angel to you already while he was alive and the thought that even after his life, he'll still be there to watch over you, i guess, is something to be thankful for. Today, you have been saved from the mishap and you have his memories to keep with you even after he's gone. Perhaps, these are enough to make the pain of losing him a little bit bearable. Weep for his life that was lost but not for the love you two have for each other. I guess, it is one thing that won't go with his passing.

Yes but the thought of not being able to play and hug him again is unbearable. My son and i were just having dinner and he was weeping as he remembered Grumby and i was teary eyed as well. It's too soon to get over the loneliness of losing Grumble today.

Oh dear one! Please accept my condolences on the loss of your dear pet! I am a very big animal lover and it pains my heart to know one has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Your pet had a wonderful loving home and it had a very happy life which is what matters the most. Bless you dear!
