Dogs In Heaven?
An old man and his dog were walking down this
dirt road with fences on
both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice
grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it
had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on. They came to a
beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "Welcome to
Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog
following him. The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm
sorry but he can't come with you."
"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If he
can't come in, then I will
stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't
desert him now."
"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the
Devil's on this road and he'll
try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but the dog
can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on
So the old man and dog went on. They came to
a rundown fence with a gap
in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside. "S'cuse me Sir, my
dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade
"Of course, there's some cold water under that
tree over there. Make
"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down
the road said dogs
weren't allowed anywhere."
"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"
"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven,
he said the dog couldn't come
We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and
some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if
my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."
The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."
"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed?
How come that fellow
down the road said they weren't?"
"That was the Devil and he gets all the people
who are willing to give up a
life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out
their mistake, but then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle
people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven.
After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he
separate them in death?"
I wish there were words to make you feel better. I'm sure
the happiness that skeezer gave you during her/his lifetime
is something that will last you yours. I know that because
of a companion like that life can be enriched. Just know
that skeezer made a great impact on you, a positive one, and
that dear is something to be treasured. I'm here, if by
chance you need someone to chat with.
Just knowing your my friends and you care.....has helped me on this day :)))
I just bet Skeezer is eating all the Chocolate he wants to now!!!!
