The last time I had a dream with my dad, my dog came as well. (Dad is deceased and my dog went missing years ago, the assumption is that she is deceased)
This dream, I remember talking to my dad having a good conversation, all of a sudden I turn to a mirror and see that I am pregnant. My dog appeared and attempted to comfort me. Next thing I remember, I am giving birth, I give birth to five babies; quints, g’damn! I’m panicking as to what to do, I can’t afford to support five children, I can barely afford to support myself right now, I start to consider adoption but then worry about the emotional attachment.
Then the problem is taken off my plate, because I turn around and they are not babies anymore. As if a dream within a dream, I seemed to wake up, to find that it is actually my dog that is having puppies, five are out and she gives birth to two more, making seven. (She actually had seven puppies, when she was with us, but they were all given away. That day was so sad, she missed her puppies.) But then, four of the puppies didn’t make it, leaving her with three (lots of number play in this dream). I spent the rest of the dream watching the new family, analyzing behavior playing with the puppies, just being with my dog. Woke up, still in the mentality that my dad and my dog were reachable… and they’re not.
