The broadcast timed out on me for most of it Sally, but came back about 2/3 through but she did say Hannah is still happy and loves you a ton and is playing with Bodie. :-)

Joined Club Tripawd April 2014 & Lexie loved life on 3 legs! Advice: Start physical therapy as soon as your vet clears it, especially hydrotherapy if available :-) See Lexie pics here.

Well, I got a good message and it nailed it about feeling guilty and not to.  I cried during the whole show and sobbed when she was talking about Sassy.  Hannah had a good message for you.  :) and called Bodie Bossy

I am still working through (aka processing) what I heard/learned ... I think overall the messages from my Shelby girl were spot on. Stacy said that she sees Shelby w/a gold crown and that she thinks she is queen. That Shelby thinks very 'highly' of herself (as in Shelby thinks she is wicked smart, which she was / is). That she thinks that she's smarter than the others and runs around w/them and has to be in the foreground. That Shelby saw herself as the caregiver in our relationship and that she cared for me as much as I cared for her. And that she still crawls into bed with me. (which might explain why Jasper growls more at night). 

And the most bittersweet - because I know this to be true because I have never told another soul this - that Shelby hears me telling her day in and day out how much I love her and I miss her ... I say it probably a dozen times a day, either outloud or in my head when I see a photo - and Shelby is thinking "I know mom, I know". 

The funny part was that Shelby said she sent me Jasper ... which I guess Stacy could have gleaned from any posts of mine that she might have read here but that Shelby thinks Jasper is rather 'dumb' (TRUE - she is a hard one to train and maybe because English is not her first language). And Shelby thinks I need another dog for Jasper which is hilarious because that is so not happening ... I can barely handle the one that I have let alone the expense of another dog but nice try little Shelby.

I might work with Stacy to get a longer reading because I've been left wanting to know more... but I do feel that Shelby is being Shelby in her afterlife ... strong-willed, smart, independent yet always looking out for me. I miss her so terribly much I know that she knows that and she knows she will never be replaced.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Awwww, so glad that Stacy was helpful!

Deb I'm so sorry the tech glitch happened.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

ALLISON!!! Because of the kindness of the Admin Guy and MICHELLE, I've been able to listen to the show several times now....and she really, really was runed into Shelby without question!!!! You did a great synopsis. And now because of Jim's link, we can all listen again!

I like that Jasper might be growling at Shelby trying to hog all the covers!

I think Michelle's from Sassy was really good too! And clearly Sassy has decided that TWO puppies are not enough...she has another one picked out!!! I think a third puppy might just through Michelle over the edge though!

It really was spot on!!! And you just wait...never say never...the anticipation of who Shelby sends you next........ohhhhh myyyyy..this outta' be really fun to watch!!!

Sally - I have to say, you 'glass half-full' life and interpretation always astounds and amazes me ... I wish that I could be more that way. I truly do. I think this reading left me more sad than at peace ... I miss Shelby so much and she was always so much stronger than me and even in her after-life, she's still the epitome of strength! I am sure this is a normal reaction to getting these kind of readings (or maybe not) but I feel 'off' today... I'll probably call Stacy and schedule a one on one with her so hopefully I can find my inner peace again.

It's just harder than I thought it would be... I was SO excited and yet I am now a little blue... Hugs my friends!~

Hmmmmm......I think calling Stacy would be helpful and she could maybe explain your emotions today.

It could be that, for a brief moment duringnher "reading", Shelby's presence felt so strong...it felt like she really was right by your side communicating with you...and then the phone call ends...and the feeling of her being "with you" again leaves.....and that feels sad.

Dunno...just throwing that out there.

Hope Jasper Lily growls tonight at three a.m.! You'll know what's happening this time!

Hugs and love!!

that make sense .. I could almost feel her and smell her next to me.

No growling at 3:00 a.m. but I did hear "click, click, click" on my hardwood floors about 4:30 and I bolted think Jasper had jumped off the tall bed but nope, she was sound asleep in her spot at the foot of my bed. I looked all around but kept hearing click, click, click... And thus Shelby continues to 'haunt me'....
