These are fabulous questions. Thank you. Extra {{{{{hugs}}}} to Sally, I know that wasn't an easy one to post about Hannah.

I think that we may have enough for a 30  min show here but anyone else can feel free to post and we will see if Stacy can join us in the chat room afterward to continue answering them.

Hello Everyone! 

I'm SUPER excited to be back on air with the Fabulous Tripawd community!! I am looking forward to answering your questions for those able to call in and perhaps we'll have enough time to get to a few questions posted with their pictures. If you don't have pictures posted please be sure to do so with your animal friends, name and age, if they're currently present with you or crossed over. That will make my job much easier and quicker so we are able to get to more people!

Thanks again! I look forward to connecting with you soon.

Stacy

LOL Erica!

I am sooooo looking forward to this call! I hope that Shelby's message to me comes across loud and clear ... Love you my baby girl! Always and forever... and even if she doesn't talk back, I do hope that Stacy can let Shelby know how much I love and miss her every single day and that she is forever with me.

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

General questions: How do our angels over the Rainbow Bridge feel when we still miss them and when we show our grief through crying?
-Glad that we miss them?
-Sad that we're not with them in an earthly way?
-Upset with us?
-Does it depends on the dog/person pairing?
-Many here have talked about pennies being a sign from them. Are there other signs we should look for that they like to send to us?
-Do they bond with the other Tripawds?
-In the afterlife, do they always choose to go back to four legs, or do some of them choose to be pain free on three legs just to be different?
-Do they remember dogs who passed years ago who they used to be friends with?
-Do they meet all the other dogs they knew as soon as they cross over, or does it take some time?
-Now that they're up there and we're still down here, what can we do on this end to make them feel loved, remembered and thought of in the most positive way?
-Same question as above but for those who left four-legged family members behind... What can we do for their remaining brothers/sisters who are still mourning them?
-When the time comes for their remaining brothers/sisters to leave, will they be waiting for them?

Stacy, thanks so much for doing this. And Jerry's pack, thanks a ton for hosting and for having such great guests!

How is my Lexie, who just transitioned a couple weeks ago? And did she have a hand in all the wonderful things and the turn of events that have been happening in the past week or so since she left? I think she knows this, put please tell her we love her and miss her a ton.

For some reason unable to post a pic but maybe this link will work:

What can we do to help Milo, Lexie's brother, feel more comfortable and less anxious and less on guard/aggressive with other dogs?

Pics here...sorry images not showing up.
