My Old Dog Came to My Dreams to Say Goodbye

Memories of a pet, translated…

Maybe it’s because of my father being in business, he kept believing, that dogs bring luck, so since I was growing up, we’d kept dogs as pets. Of these, “Poki” was the one who’d accompanied us the longest.

She was a tri-colored Cocker Spaniel, with two golden eyebrows, and black-and-white coat. She was only forty-five days old when she came home, and became a member of the family. With her company, I’d passed through my teens, into my twenties, and, she’d watched me marry off, and on the verge of becoming a mother, she’d, died.

In the final stages of her life, she’d lost her hearing as well as her sight because of illness and old age, and, she’s no longer full of energy as she once was. Being cleanly, she couldn’t even bring herself to go to the bathrooms, and can only lay there, on the floors, and, acted like that yellowed rug, not moving a single muscle. But, as I’d walked closer, she’d known my scent, lifted her head up, with her cataract eyes, and, sniffed hard into the air, and, fully wagged her tail.

On the day I gave birth, the joys from becoming a new mother, along with the nervousness of it, made me forget about Poki for a short bit, but one night, I’d dreamed about her: in a seaside white mansion, my deceased uncle opened up the doors for me, and, inside, Poki, in her white-as-snow coat, very energetic, with her eyes, bright again, she was, grinning at me. I’d turned around, she’d run into that long hallway, very light, her eyes flew with the wind, she looked very happy, without any worries, without any illness, just kept running, running, until she’d become, nothing BUT a white dot in the distance, vanishing, from my sight.

The very next day, my family told me, that Poki died in the night, and ever since, we’d never had another pet. It’d been, six years already, and not a day goes by, that I don’t think about her.

So, the dream you had, foreshadowed that your beloved pet was about to pass on, and, because you loved her so very much, it pains you, to have another dog, and this just shows, how strong a bond between a pet and an owner can be.
