Hero, the faithful dog

This is a story from Petter in Norway.
This is a recap of what happened after my black Labrador, Hero, died when he was 11 years old, and it spans over a period of 10 years. I have always been very skeptical and have never believed in reincarnation, but sometimes one would wonder.

In life Hero was a very normal black Labrador retriever and he used to follow me everywhere, faithfully having a daily chore of escorting me to my school bus, and waiting until It picked me up, He would make sure I was protected where ever I'd go. Then about 1 year after he died of old age, one of our cats gave birth to a female black kitten. In all our years this was the only time any of our many farm cats got a black kitten. Jokingly we remarked hey she looks a bit like Hero, she even have his white flag shaped spot on her chest. We named the kitten Euphra and she was always a bit odd, I never heard her meow and she would run not like any of our other cats, and we often said jokingly she must be a reincarnation of Hero, since her behavior was more like a dog than a cat, but still always considered this to be more a coincidence than anything else. (see Petter's other post in this blog about coincidences)
A few years later Euphra passed away and I moved to Tromsø to study, I always walked a lot, and during the first year I often saw this one kid about 7 or 8 years old playing along in this one part I passed while walking to or from the University. Then one day the kid stopped me and asked where my dog was, he insisted he had seen me walk by with my dog almost every day now for over a year. I told him he must be mistaken since I did not have any dogs, though I do walk by almost every day. The kid was very persistent and continued telling me what the dog looked like even describing the unique flag shaped white spot on his chest, a perfect description of Hero my old dog from years earlier. It does make you wonder if there really are something more, and if so it seemed my old dog Hero was still with me even 10 years after he passed away.
