Reader Stories: Pet Reincarnation Stories


Reader Submissions - The bonds we share with our pets are very strong. Although death separates us in the physical when a pet dies the spiritual connection between us remains forever. Many people believe that our pets can choose to reincarnate and return to us in another vehicle. Readers share stories of their spiritual connections with pets that have passed, and also stories of beloved pets who have returned to them in a different body.
