Our pets are more than just animals—they’re like best friends and family members… and when one passes away, it’s a truly heartbreaking experience.
Many grieving pet owners find comfort in the idea that their pets are just over the “rainbow bridge,” happily waiting for us in the after life.
That was the case for one young woman who received a heavenly message from her late pet dog.
Lucy Ledgeway, a 19-year-old from York, England, was devastated when her beloved pet dog Sunny passed away. The 14-year-old Jack Russell terrier died after suffering a seizure.
In the house after Sunny died, Lucy was grieving hard, and took a car ride with her boyfriend to get some air and clear her head.
They passed a spot where she used to take Sunny for walks, and Lucy wanted to feel her dog’s presence somehow.
“It was so weird. I was thinking to myself that I wanted to see Sunny in the sky as a sign that she was OK,” she told the Daily Mail.
But then, she looked up into the clouds… and saw her dog’s face. “I was crying my eyes out and I looked up in the sky and saw Sunny.”

Some non-believers might see nothing or think it’s just a coincidence, but for Lucy, it was all the proof she needed to know her dog was in a better place.
“After seeing Sunny in the sky I felt a warmth. It was her way of telling us that she is OK,” Lucy said.
She took a photo of the inspiring vision, which went viral after she shared it on Twitter. It’s received over 100,000 likes, with many dog lovers expressing their sympathy… and some even sharing similar stories of visions in the clouds:

With so many cases like this, maybe our dogs really are sending us signs from across the rainbow bridge, their way of telling us it’s okay.
The next time someone experiences the loss of a beloved pet, tell them to look up… they might just see a reassuring face.
