Hi all! So I am an animal lover, first off. Here is the reason I am asking your thoughts on this. The first dog I had that was really mine was a doberman named Hunter...she was a very smart dog, devoted to me and my family but not too inclined to like others. I had an opportunity to work overseas for a year so I left her in my parents care and off I went. She was only 7 so I was sure we had many years together. About half way through my year she was diagnised with cancer and died the month before I returned. My next dog was a rescue and a wonderful companion. After he passed away I got a rhodesian ridgeback puppy I named Summer. Poor dog, I got her during the worst period of my life and she was a tremendous comfort to me. Ever since she was young I've always thought she was Hunter come back to me, she was even diagnosed with cancer the first week I got her, she is now almost 6 and despite numerous tests the puppy incident was never resolved or understood. One day I was at the park with a friend, and all o a sudden she called Summer Hunter instead. I was so startled I asked her what she had called her. She was like, that's strange I have no idea why I called her Hunter. I told her about my old dog and we agreed it was very strange. So the question is, what do you think about the souls of animals. To me they are almost like my guardian angels, I have never not had at least one animal in my life. Thoughts?
