Well, by that criteria there is at least one dog that will go to heaven

Ciccio the German shepherd attends church every day since owner died



Going to church does not make a good person. A church is just a building...early Christians didn't worship in churches...they worshipped in catacombs and private houses. Jesus didn't preach in a church. He preached every where, inside and outside. Did those people go to heaven?

It never occurred to me that one must worship in a man made building for their belief to be "real". Interesting.....

With that I leave this thread....but I sincerely enjoyed the OP's post

The way I figure it, none of us are dead so we don't know. And folks who quote religious experiences on death are oft countered with it being a normal physiological response of dying.

One of those mysteries we don't have to worry too much about since there is too much to get sorted out in this life as it is.

I kind of like the story of Adam and Eve in that regard because all was good until they were tempted to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (i.e., "everything") And it is in a prominent place in the Bible. We don't really know, but do we need to know when we still haven't even figured out the part about loving each other?

Boris visited me once shortly after he died. I saw him standing next to my bed looking at me. I am absolutely sure it was him.

Anyone who chooses to say unkind things to me, go away, I don't care what you have to say.

Of course dogs go to Heaven. In Heaven, there is no pain or sadness and no tears. It would be very painful and sad to me, if my beloved pets were not in Heaven, therefore, I know they will be there - all my dogs, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, turtles and fish AND even Cecil, the worm I had when I was four.

That is so awesome, what a gift. I always hope that this would happen to me. Sometimes I see them in my dreams and I consider it a visit from them to me.

The weirdest thing ever happening in this regard was when I lit a candle for one of my oldies who died that day and I told him, "Send a nice Collie one day". (at that time I was looking into Farm Collies). The next day I got an email from a friend who knew about two collies needing a home. This has honestly happened. What are the chances that this was a coincidence? The dog I lost had always been crazily obedient, almost to the point of OCD. I told him to not overdo it.
I know that some people will tell me I just imagine this (to say the least...). But I know there is more going on between dogs and their people than we may think.

God and Dog..... wonder how the name came about? God's sense of humor, knowing humans needed an intelligent companion?
Reading the comments under the video is one from Jean Holmes(she wrote this book:
Amazon Amazon
)
Look who's in the front of the line on her illustration

Jane, That was so cute. Yes, God must have a sense of humor. He would have to. LOL!
