Do pets go to Heaven?

I began my website last year in May of 2012. One of my first articles was about whether or not our pets went to heaven. It never ceases to amaze me how many people do believe that they do. I of course have no doubts, but there are those who do.

 

I have recently posted that I am closing down my site. Mainly because of the lack of interest and traffic I need so much in order to keep it going. So today in my email I found some messages I believe came from a higher source than myself or any other Human. Call me crazy, but I do believe in a Higher Power. That power is God. One of these messages (among many that I have received) made me wonder if maybe I should still chase after my passion. That passion for the past year has been to   research, write, and gain knowledge in the best interest of my Best Friend, Austin, my buddy, my pal, my loving Dachshund.

 

Though I haven’t yet decided on whether or not to continue working here on my site, I felt I needed to share this inspirational message that was in my email box today. If you have read this article this far, then you really need to go here to read my very first website post. If you love your dog as much as I love mine. (Which by the way I now have two little fur babies) then you will take relief in knowing that there is indeed a heaven for our pets. They will be the first to greet you when you yourself leave this earth.

 

So for now, thank you for reading and maybe I will continue to write. Right now I am just taking ravish in knowing I can rest in peace in heaven with all of my loved ones. This of course means my Best friends, Missy, Mouse, Smokey, Lady, Austin, and Lilly. These best friends of mine and for all animals have been the passion of my site here at:

For the love of dogs today





Dogs comforting Newtown

In the event of the Newtown tragedy,where 20 small lives and 6 adults’ lives were taken. People were left with the horrible memories of how this could and did happen.

Well, our best friends pull through again! Healing and helping people pull together to be strong, and restore their faith.

Do Dogs have a Soul?

 

 

Do you love your dog as much as he loves you? Do dogs even have emotions? This has always been debatable. (Though I know my dog loves me!  )

Most of us like to believe too that dogs like people have a soul.

I read a book by, Jon Katz just about a year ago entitled “Soul of A dog”. It was a heart warming story,entertaining and inspirational. Anyone who owns and loves a dog will agree.

I asked my pastor what his thoughts were about dogs having or not having a soul. He explained the Church’s point of view, and then proceeded to tell me his priest friend’s point of view. “If God see’s that we need our pet with us in Heaven, then he will certainly be there to greet us”. That statement will forever comfort my own soul.(click on this link to the left, it is a must read!)

One thing we can be sure of is that our dogs (unlike some people), are unbiased, loving, trust worthy and admirable. They warm our hearts; they mend our souls. Cheer us when we are sad, and most importantly make us laugh when laughter we know is of great  essence to our physical and emotional well-being.

Speaking of ‘OUR physical and emotional being, there are animals that live with people who are emotionally and or physically unfit to care for an animal. In this kind of environment many animals suffer from abuse and neglect. They become the target for people’s distress. It’s unfortunate (to say the least) that people, like these poor innocent animals, are lacking love and tolerance in their own homes. It is very sad. Some people will recognize that they need professional help, others won’t.

But what happens to our furry little friends? Many are left behind to fend for themselves. This too is sad, but some may be better to stray rather than be abused! However an alternative is much better. Such as an animal shelter, a pet adoption home, or someone you know needs a pet, and will provide for them.

If you know of or see a poor animal struggling to survive, please reach out and help. There are many options. Do this FOR THE LOVE OF DOGS TODAY, cats, and all uncared for animals.

I started this article with the intentions to write about my dog. (My little man’s) I like to call him. He likes it too. When I tell him he is my little man (oh yeah, I talk to the animals!) his little tail wags and he knows I love and am pleased with him. He also knows when I am not so happy, when I actually call him by his name (in a much different tone.) The tail isn’t wagging, his ears are closer to his little head and his eyes look very confused. this expression of course is telling me “Mommy, I’m sorry” I have all I can do to ignore this pleading look for positive attention. “No hugs and kisses just yet little guy!” But he does know that I love him.
