Unexplainable - Not to Me

The other night I was up late at my computer.  All was quiet except for the taping of the keyboard keys and the low murmur coming from the TV.  Then I heard Tyson.  He was getting off the couch.  I heard the couch cushions as he moved, I heard his tags jingle and his paws hit the floor.

I know that noise. I've heard it plenty of times from
Payton but I could not believe Tyson was on the furniture - somehow he seems to stay off.

I went into the living room to catch him.  I called out, "Tyson, stay off the couch" and then turned on the light.  No Tyson.  Then I heard Tyson crawling out from underneath our bed.

It wasn't Tyson on the couch.  I may sound nuts.  I know I do.  I think it was Payton.  I swear I see or hear his ghost from time to time.  Once I was standing in front of an open fridge and he touched my hand.  (I thought that was Tyson too)  When I looked down to pet him, there Tyson was lying down fast asleep in the next room.

It will soon be a year that Payton has been gone. It really doesn't seem that way at all.  My heart still thinks it was last week.

Oh, big hugs to you. We've lost three family dogs, and each loss is such a hard one. I know how you're feeling.

Thanks so much. When I was a teen I was a total cat lover. Who knew.
