Awww, she is beautiful! Yes, I do believe in reincarnation. In fact, I used to have a small Chihuahua a few years ago. His name was Scotty. He was my shadow and followed me everywhere. I couldn’t even go to the bathroom without him right there with me, lol. He died in his sleep right next to me in mine and my husband’s bed one night. I knew he was dying because he was really sick but it still hurt my heart to lose him.

I went upstairs to our bedroom in our old apartment to get him one morning because he had trouble walking then. He was 17-years-old at the time of his death. I walked in and called his name and he didn’t move. I slowly walked over to where he was lying, knowing deep down what I was about to find and when I did I started screaming and crying for him.

My husband came running upstairs to see what was wrong and found me on the floor crying my eyes out. He was my buddy. I have tears now thinking of him.

Anyway, now I have seven dogs my husband and I keep. One is Peanut and although he is a Jack Russell, he acts just like Scotty did with me. He follows me everywhere I go and I swear Scotty reincarnated into him.

Thanks for sharing your story!
