That has been going around the e-mails. I crack up every time I see it. It is cute!
But do dogs go to heaven? Hmmm? Have to wait and see.

I hate to be a party-pooper, and this is cute, but fake. Somone is using this great website (http://www.says-it.com/churchsigns/) to create these church signs. It's a fun tool to play with and play tricks on your friends with.

hahaha soo funny and cutee!
I think dogs and other pets will be in heaven because God will give us everything that made us happy on earth....but on the other hand, every desire we ever had will be fulfilled there just because we will be with God, so is it necessary to have anything else??

Only Catholic dogs that vote for Pro-Life politicians go to heaven.

Man I crack myself up!

When God created man He made man in His image and likeness. Mankind was given a soul and the ability to determine what is right and wrong. I had a cocker spaniel that lived for almost 20 years. I know that is a long time and I grew found of him. When he died I missed him, he was my best friend. However God did not make him with a soul or the ability to determine between right and wrong. As much as we would like to see our pets when we go to Heaven I do not believe we will see our pets again. We will be in Heaven with God to love Him and praise Him for all eternity.

(As I write this I had the following thought)

That being said I do wonder if that is true or not because in the Bible it does say that when Jesus returns He will come riding a white horse,there are creatures in heaven with horns,tails etc. Maybe God will allow pets to be in Heaven I don't know for sure but they will not be able to praise Him and worship Him.

Not to be irreverrant;
But, honestly, if someone gives my 14 yr. ole whippet, Rascal, a "biscuit" he worships them!
Whatever I find in heaven I'm sure will be everything that I want or need and will make me happy!

I do not know exactly where, perhaps in Revelation, it says "All creation will praise Him" (paraphrased) and our pets are certainly God's creations. Also, about the rocks---remember how Jesus said that if the people would not praise him on his entry into Jerusalem, "even the stones would shout"? I know the signs are fakes, and we won't know 'til we're in Heaven, but it is something to ponder.

The sad fact is that many people get more love from their dogs than they do from certain people...

But don't you know....I mean, I'm suuuure, they will all have to pass through Purgatory so that they will be well-behaved angels in heaven. Cats especially....


(Uh, and my mom's dog, he's soooooo baaaaad!)

I would have to say that my dog knows when he is listening or not, it is in his body language.
When we are there we will know.
