Penny and Maggie's Mom, thanks so much for sharing the thoughts and words of FR. Melton.

I too believe our animals go to heaven and we will one day be reunited.

There's a book called "Heaven is for Real" and it's a true account of a boy that almost dies. During surgery, he goes to heaven and when he wakes up is able to tell his family things he couldn't have possibly known. He mentions to his family he saw animals in heaven, including dogs. So if you believe the story is true, dogs do indeed go to heaven!

I've read this book and I believe it is true. I also believe our loved ones, that have gone before us, watch over us from Heaven. And I believe our pets are waiting for us, along with our loved ones to join us for eternity. What if it isn't true? Well, I have a quote hanging on the fridge..."I'd rather live my life as if there is a God and find out there isn't than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is".

Wow....I was thinking this very thing recently. My old man, Billy, is now ten and a half and I see him slowing down. It's killing me.
Cassie was my heart dog. She was my everything. I can't explain what that dog meant to me...but here on this forum I know you all know what I mean. She was my center. Cassie had two seizures that I know of...the second one was the one that ripped her from me...I remember at the emergency vet, looking at her gums going gray as she slipped from me, and I remember the sounds that came out of me when she left me....they weren't human sounds. I couldn't believe those raw animal sounds came from me.
Going home I just threw myself on the bed. I just existed for a couple of days. Then suddenly I knew I needed a puppy. This was late April and I suddenly decided it was a golden retriever I wanted. I found this forum, joined, and folks here guided me to am amazing breeder. Max was born exactly to the day one month after Cassie died. When I went to the breeder's open house to meet the puppies, there was one puppy with a little bones collar who just bonded with me, instantly. This puppy and I connected in an extraordinary way. I WANTED Mr. Bones, as I called him. But the breeder picked the puppies herself. Amazingly, she picked Mr. Bones for me.
Max seemed to have an old soul. Calm, confident, took everything in his stride. I would watch him in new situations and it was as if this was nothing new. Then one day I was getting ready for bed and I saw Max jump on the bed, smoosh all the sheets together, get inside them, under them, turn around, and put his head on the pillow.
In EXACTLY the same way Cassie did it.
I believe the Lord grants us many mercies in our lives. He and Cassie sent me Max. And one day Cassie, Max, my old man Billy, and every dog I've ever had will meet again. I don't know if there will be a "Rainbow Bridge" but I believe with all my sould and all my heart that his mercy will give us the opportunity to see our loves again.

I truely believe we will. I really do. Atticus' passing in August is all too fresh in our memories. We miss him terribly. My partner and I have talked at length about him still being around--and that we hope that when the time was right, that he'd let us know he was "still in our lives". Just show us a sign--even a small one.

I had to do some work this past weekend on our cabin. My partner was at home with the other two Goldens. The weather was crappy--cold, rainy and windy. It was 'just me' at the end of a long road; the nearest person was quite a ways away. The cabin was usually a little cramped with us two and the three Goldens bouncing around--but now, just me and the sound of the fridge running. I felt very sad and alone. I crawled into bed and dozed off but soon after, got wakened by the sound of footsteps--four-footed ones, padding aroud the room--very quietly but the gait was unmistakable--it was Atticus! The steps came slowly toward me in the dark, then turned to the my side of the bed. Of course, Atticus always came to my side first to nuzzle me with his cold nose, "C'mon dad, time to go out and pee".... Then, silence.... At that moment, I no longer felt alone. It was wonderful...

I really believe that our companions are still with us in some form--even after they pass on... We just need to keep an open mind.

Scott J.

I believe that we will have them again in Heaven. I had a brief vision of our first Golden, Charlie, running under a blue sky on grass, young again (about age 2) and healthy!

I also had an impression of our second Golden, Chester, walking on the heavenly version of our nearby park trail. There was no dirt. The path was paved, and there were no weeds, just beautiful plants.

I really hope so. I believe in the possibility of anything. In heaven, in reincarnation or nothing at all. I choose to have the strongest faith that we, and our beloved pets go on to a place like heaven. I believe in God, and so if he loved us enough to give us these blessings, then if we might go on, I hope they do too.

I recieved this in an e-mail & thought ya'll would enjoy a little long but ...
A cowboy is riding along a trail on his horse with his dog walking along beside him.He notices he's never been on this trial before & how beautiful trail is.
He then remembers dying & then relizes his hourse is one that left him years ago & the dog was his heart dog as a young man.
He sees way up on a hill a shining white wall with a gate made all of gold.As he approches he sees a man sitting at a desk & asked "What is this place?"The man says "This is heaven"
The cowboy says "Could I trouble you for a drink of water?" & the man says"Once you enter you can have anything you want."
He then ask" Can my dog & horse come with me?" The reply was "no only you" So the cowboy says"well I guess I'll just keep riding & heads off.
A mile or so later he comes upon an old wooden fence with a gate with an old man leaning on the gate post'The cowboy asked him for water & the fellow says"Why sure the pumps right over there help yourself."He then again asked "Can my pets come & have a drink too?"
The reply was "Of coarse all are welcome here"
He then asked "What is this place?" & the man says"Why my son this is Heaven"
The cowboy doesn't understand & asked "What is that place up the road then"
"That's Hell" was the answer.
He says "Don't you get mad that they use your name like that"
"No" was the reply."It helps us weed out all the ones that would leave their best friends behind"
