Feathers From Heaven

Bunny here, with another post about our trip.

The last day of our vacation, Mom and I wanted to go and have time to enjoy the beach.  She knew how much I enjoyed the water, so we went down there to take a walk.  We enjoyed seeing lots of other dogs down there as well as people.  The sky was beautiful and the weather was perfect.  It was a great last day at the beach. 

While we were walking along, Mom told me about how much Treat used to love playing in the ocean, too.  She said it was Treat's favorite thing to do when they came to the beach.  I can certainly understand why!  As we walked, we spotted a feather on the beach.  You may be thinking that it's probably not uncommon to see a feather on the beach.  After all, there are lots of birds near the beach, however, we hadn't seen one so far.  A lot of people believe that feathers mean that someone in heaven is thinking about you.  We even bought a picture from an artist who painted portraits of dogs who'd crossed the Bridge and included a feather in the picture. Mom said maybe Treat was thinking of us.

Then, while we were walking back, we found a butterfly who was caught in the ocean.  It's wings were wet and it couldn't get into the dry sand.  So, we gave it a lift on my long line and it hung on there, drying its wings as we walked back towards our spot on the beach.  We stopped and I allowed Mom to take some more pictures of me on the beach, and wouldn't you know it, the butterfly climbed right up on her hand.  It sat there for a long time, and finally it was tickling Mom too much, so she set it down in the sand.  We sat there with it for a while before we walked back up to the hotel.  I hope it dried off and flew away.

I don't know if there were signs from Treat on the beach or not, but it's nice to think she was looking out for us and enjoying it with us.  I'm just glad that it was a perfect last day to enjoy the beach!

  2. Is that Treat or Bunny's shadow? There is so much harmony and motion in the last picture. What beautiful memories!

  3. What a lovely time you have had.

    If you remember a loved one that's passed, then they are with you, so I am sure in all thosde little things Treat was saying, I'm here and enjoying this trip with you.

    Could I ask how long the long lead is? It looks longer than the lead I have for Song. Would like her to have more freedom, but was told not to put her on a long lead and certyainly not an extending one.

  4. I hadn't heard that about feathers before. It's lovely to think loved ones who have left us are still looking over us, 2 legged and 4 legged:-) Love the last photo in particular.

  5. I think she was there with you. How lovely to save that nice butterfly.

  14. I think Treat was there with you! May be that's the way she said 'HI' to you and your momma.

  15. There is NO doubt about it.. Treat put out all the signs that she was there enjoying the time with you!!!

  16. Yes, that was Treat watching you with love. My Sarge loved to sit under the maple tree, ever watchful and protective. Sometimes I feel him watching from above. Miss my old boy.........

  17. I didin't know that about feathers! And it must be true and Treat looking out for you during your last day on the beach!!

  18. Beautiful thoughts to go along with such lovely photos.

    Treat was there with you. Your heart carries him everywhere you go, he is always there for you anytime you want him.

    I like to feel that way about my loves lost.
    Sometimes this thought brings tears to my eyes, but mostly smiles.

  19. I love the picture with you laying on the sand. You look so happy!!

    This post gave us goosebumps... I think for sure Treat was with you both!


  20. So that's what angel feathers look like. :-)

  21. Oh, I luv that last picture, Bunny! Well, all of them, but especially the last one. And I really, really DO think those were signs from Treat. How Most Marvelous that she was there walking alongside you!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  22. Bunny, you looked to be smiling on all those photos, I love the saying about the feather.

  23. Thank you for the comment about the little prince . It was sweet and kind and gentle and caring. It was very special.

  24. You're so lucky to be on the beach. Love the pics.

  25. It's funny Bunny, but you say feathers. I say hummingbirds and train whistles. My dad believed that my brother came to visit as a hummingbird. Every time I hear a train whistle, I think of my dad. I guess everyone has a way to remember their loved ones.

    I'm sure Treat was with you. Love never dies.

  26. That last photo with the pawprints in the sand gave us big smiles. What a touching post! We think Treat was there with you along with the special feather and butterfly. We are sure this is a day your Mom will treasure for a long time.
