Unexplainable occurance on Dash’s final day

No Gravatar

Something that happened Tuesday morning, on the day we said our final goodbyes to our 13-year-old greyhound Dash, that shook the emotions for my wife and me.

We made the final decision early in the day and with great sadness set an appointment for early afternoon. But I had interviews planned for late morning for a sports feature I was working on.

When I got into my car, I paused a moment to collect my thoughts and noticed some trash in the floorboard. So gathered it up and took it to a trash bag in the garage. As I walked back to my car, I heard a large truck heading down our street.

The large yellow vehicle had huge letters on the side for the company name. I can’t recall the complete name, but it was something like “DASH Transport and Storage.” The “DASH” was in huge letters.

I’ve lived in my hometown my entire life and I have never heard of this company and have never seen one its trucks. I couldn’t believe that this happened on this particular day and at the exact point when I was in the driveway.

As I was thinking about whether or not I should mention this to my wife, I looked up to see her walking from the garage with tears in her eyes. She had just happened to looked out the front window as the truck passed the house.

Is this a completely random occurrence based on some order of random chance or is there something more at play here? I’ve asked myself several times about why this happened.

  1. Very sorry about the death of Dash, who survived so many illnesses.

    I just Googled for [Dash Transport Wilmington NC]. The third search result was Greyhound.com.

  2. Oh my….just the sort of ‘synchronous’ event I have come to watch for around the time a family member (furry or otherwise!) passes on. Thank you for sharing it, and hugs to you! Watch for other messages from Dash. I think they are meant to shine a light on our connected-ness with our animal friends and their continued presence in our lives. : )

  3. I’m so sorry about Dash. Our animals become such a huge part of our lives. Your story reminds me of a book I read, when God winks at you. It’s about how there are really no coincidences, and when there seems to be, it’s only God winking at you letting you know he’s there.

  4. No, it wasn’t random. It was Dash telling you he is okay. I will tell you guys sometime about the rainbow that came the day after my Bandit passed. They know when we need confirmation. :))
