Love can transcend the spoken word because it is a felt experience verses an intellectual experience, as is the case with language. Animals offer us a unique opportunity to transcend the boundaries of our human perspectives by allowing us to stretch our consciousness beyond the spoken word. In interacting with a companion animal, it becomes clear that communication goes beyond words and wordless communication can be deeper and more meaningful than conversation. Although, there are many times that we use words to talk to our pets, always remember that our pets will understand the intention behind our words. They will understand when we are conveying love to them just as we understand the love our pets express through their behaviors. This type of unspoken but felt love is impossible not to miss when our pets have passed and are waiting to reunite with us on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
