Learn how departed animals communicate with their owners with either "Postcards" or "Kisses" from heaven and other heartwarming and funny stories. This book highlights true "tails" about animals that have visited their owners from the afterlife. For anyone who has ever loved an animal, these stories will produce a roller coaster of emotions and the belief that their "heart animal" will always be there for them—even after leaving this world. Harrison the Greyhound refused to leave the van he rode in, even after he passed away; Boo Boo, the long-deceased Boston Terrier, reappears any time another pet needs to cross to the other side, and Coco's barking from beyond saved her family from a fire. Do pets return from the dead to contact their owners? Can pets actually see spirits that exist in your home? Does your pet have the drive to protect you from spirits that appear at your bedside? Decide for yourself as you read these ghostly stories.

I believe in the Afterlife. I believe that there is a Heaven, and I believe that there are animals there. I cannot imagine Heaven without them! Every devoted pet owner knows about the Rainbow Bridge. We believe this is where our pets go to cross over to the Afterlife. This is the comfort that fills the void left in our hearts where they depart this life.As a well-seasoned paranormal expert, Peggy Schmidt has lead numerous ghost tours. She has written and documented a wide variety of experiences, including the pets in this book. "Tails" of the Afterlife: True Stories of Ghost Pets is a very comforting book for those who feel as I do about this topic. Peggy has created a beautiful book full of stories, personal experiences from pet owners, and many colour photographs of the pets she writes about.The stories in this book are unique and interesting. Each story is touching, showing the power of the human-to-animal bond. In one story, a dog reappears to assist another pet in crossing the Rainbow Bridge. Another dog appeared just in time to save his family from a fire. In other stories, pets remain in their earthly home, seemingly held there by love.The book includes an appendix that addresses topics such as communicating with the deceased, including pets, and knowing when it is time to let pets move on, across the Rainbow Bridge.Peggy Schmidt writes about what others have experienced, while being open about her own experiences and thoughts. She is owned by eight Jack Russell terriers.This is a nicely done book for those who believe, or even those who want to.

Do ghost pets visit you from the other side? "Tails" of the Afterlife: True Stories of Ghost Pets (ISBN-13: 978-076433253), by Peggy Schmidt, examines the notion of ghost pets and their ability to return to their owners after death. This work is a 160 page non-fiction paperback released by Schiffer Books in May of 2009. This work reveals stories about pet owners and their deceased pets, and the ways in which animals continue to communicate with pet owners after they have passed on.Schmidt is the co-owner of Ghost Tours of Phoenixville. The latter company was created with the collaborative efforts of Schmidt and Andrea Martnishn: two friends that have a serious enthusiasm for the paranormal. Schmidt writes about her experiences while giving ghost tours, her own visitations and psychic experiences with animals, and she shares true stories and encounters of others with similar experiences. Schmidt¿s book explores the notion that animals can see spirits, that animals often protect their owners even after death, and that they frequently communicate with owners after death to let them know that they are fine.Peggy writes in an incredibly lucid fashion, sometimes sharing the stories in her own voice and sometimes simply conveying the stories as they are shared with her by other pet owners and animal lovers from around the world. Schmidt talks about the embarrassment that some people have when it comes to sharing ghost pet stories and experiences, the deep psychic connection that pet owners have with their animals, the real, intense, and true affection that pet owners have for their animals, and she reveals how animals communicate with their owners. The work also explores how pet owners can overcome the grief of an animal¿s passing, how animal communicators can assist pet owners in connecting with animals both while they are alive and when they have passed on, and some of the common events that occur when an animal makes contact from the other side.Schmidt also explores the concept of old soul animals, animal reincarnation, the lessons that animals are here to teach people, and the potential existence of an ¿animal underground railroad.¿ The book even has tales of dolphins and the information on the legend of the white doe. In a personal interview with Peggy Schmidt on ISIS Paranormal Radio, she revealed that she plans to write more works like this book, and it is unquestionably work that readers, pet owners, and animal lovers can look forward to in the future.This book is beyond extraordinary and is a wonderful selection for every pet owner or for those that love good, deep, heartwarming stories. The formatting of this text is absolutely wonderful with every glossy page rich with colorful images of pets from around the world. Images are also presented in a watermark-like fashion as the text is set over animal images of all kinds. The images do not make the text at all difficult to read and they serve to bring the text to life in full, vibrant colors. The glossy pages and colorful layout set this book apart from other books and help to make the text an entertaining read. Whether you believe in the possibility of ghosts or not, if you have a profound love for animals, this book is definitely worth reading. You will find tale after tale about animals and their possible survival after death: some of them joyous and some of them tear-jerking. Once you pick the book up you will literally find it impossible to put it down and it can be read in one sitting with ease.
