I've currently been searching google for the meaning of this dream and I can't find anything. I woke up this morning with a feeling of grief, dread, and utter lack of wanting to get up to face today (and today's my day off, too!!). Argh! But, anyway, here's the dream: My mom's bird (a bird I love, BTW) and a former dog of mine died in the dream. Both of them died at the same time. HOWever...the dog that died was a dalmatian that I used to have and has been dead for about a year now. I realize that death seldom means death in a literal sense, however, after doing some searching I've noticed that animals tend to represent parents. So, what could this dream mean?
