A description of the experience
The Art of Dying – Drs Peter and Elizabeth Fenwick
Michael Finch's mother was in a Macmillan unit, dying of cancer and in a coma. One night Michael left the hospital and returned home to let the dog out.
I will NEVER forget this as long as I live. At 10.45 p.m. on 12 November 1995 the dog began to howling like a wolf. It was spine chilling. I just knew that this was because Mum had died. For five minutes he howled uncontrollably and then took to his bed. The dog was a King Charles Cavalier, and in his then 12 years had never made such a deep, wild and rasping sound as that. When my father and sister returned about an hour later they confirmed my thoughts, that Mum had died at 10.45 p.m.
