Do Dead People Walk Their Dogs?
Questions You'd Ask a Medium If You Had the Chance

Chapter One

Can the Dead joke with us?

One time I was doing a reading at one of my big shows and the questioner's mother-in-law came through. Unlike my own situation with my mother-in-law, they had been very close. Most of the time I can validate who the spirit is by asking them the means of their crossing, how they died, which the person is able to confirm. But in this case, her mother-in-law didn't want to talk about that at all. She kept saying to me, "Just say T—she'll know what it means." Well, I sure didn't know what it meant. Was it an initial of somebody? The first letter of a place? Who knew? But the spirit was insistent so I told her, "She's saying to just mention the letter T and you'll know what it is." She looked puzzled. She said to herself, "T? T?" then she laughed. She said, "Oh! I get it! Tea! Like you drink, a cup of tea. After my mother-in-law died, her daughters and I had to go empty the house so it could be sold. In Mom's kitchen were boxes and boxes and boxes of Lipton's tea! No English Breakfast or peppermint or Darjeeling or chamomile. No. Every time we opened a cupboard, there was more Lipton's tea! My sisters-in-law and I still laugh about how much tea Mom had." Clearly they weren't the only ones laughing—her mother-in-law on the Other Side was enjoying the joke, too.

I think even souls who were very sober when they were here lighten up when they get to the Other Side. We're all different so not every dead guy is a comedian, but when they see the big picture they just get a little lighter. And they appreciate it whenwe can be lighter, too. I had four women come to see me for a group reading. They didn't look anything alike so I was guessing they were friends, not sisters. It didn't take long before I saw, standing behind all four of them, the spirit of a woman who told me she had died of cancer. When I asked why she was claiming all of them, did they know who she was, they all nodded somberly and told me that she had been a well-liked coworker of theirs named Viola. Viola had a big smile for one of the four women and I said to her, "Why is it that Viola is telling me that you were the funniest one of the bunch? And what is it she's showing me, like this?" I picked up a pen that I'd been signing books with and pointed it at her. Finally that got a smile out of her. She told me that while Viola was still able to work, sometimes she'd have a pretty bad day and to get her out of her mood she would shoot rubber bands at her with her pen. If Viola was having a really bad day, she'd take the whole box of rubber bands and empty it on Viola's head! So silly, but such a loving gesture at the same time—we all appreciate that kind of thing, don't we?

    Expands on her first book, which changed my understanding of the people I meet and the world we all live in together.

    20 years ago, I would not have read this book because my religion would have very deeply frowned on a book written by a medium. In those 20 years, at my request, God has shown me just how much he loves and cares for ALL of us regardless of our belief system or sometimes, lack thereof. Concetta's books put many concepts from those 20 years into words with clarity, dignity, love and humor.
    Concetta's book has freed me to forgive and love members of my family, friends and others, those still alive and those who have passed. Relationships that were very hurtful and in some cases, soul damaging, had very important lessons connected to them. I am able to see at least some of those lessons, be thankful for them and move on. Make no mistake, moving on is a work in progress, but it is moving toward life, love and a happier, lighter, more forgiving soul.
    Thank you Concetta, for sharing your life, the lives of others and your understanding of the love God has for all of us. Thank you for taking the time to write it down.

    Do Dead People Walk Their Dogs? Disappointing.

    I was very disappointed. A very slow read. Information very vague and generic.

    No Surprise

    It is exactly as I expected. Not as good as the first book. I thought she pretty much covered all the questions in the first book. She should of either changed up the formula a little bit or not written this one at all.
