i grew up with dalmatians. they're my moms choice of dog. they usually get dogs in pairs but once we had only one named tye. tye died in my arms under our tree. now we have juno and smudge. well, i know how easy it is to see the previous dalmatian in the new one but sometimes i think tye(male) was reincarnated into Juno(female) who has an obsession with me and follows me around. she has a look in her eye that feels like she cares about me a lot even though i get annoyed with her sometimes. my parents though say they see their previous dogs in most all of our dalmatians and there is always a similarity. We've tried to get other breed and have had weird luck... things like Parvo or other unfortunate events that can't be helped... that being said there are dalmatian totems through out this house and i think that is this house's spirit animal(protector).... sometimes i think there are aspects of tye's personality in Juno, like bits of his soul/personality could have been fragmented or shared with our current dogs... i was told if you love an animal enough they also have the chance to incarnate into humans in their next cycle. a lot i don't know about the subject and wish to break away from the cycle of reincarnation if there is such a thing.... still felt inclined to share.
