My heart and soul are breaking
« on: May 10, 2011, 03:06:43 PM »
My best friend is in his last days . . . .Albert :(

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 this road."

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 for awhile?"

"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable"

"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 in.
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?"

Pickle.
First of all,my heart goes out to you.My eyes are watering as I'm remembering having to euthanize the best friend I ever had in 1998.As you can see,I never got myself another dog because I don't think that I can bear reliving that moment.You raise them as pups and after getting more love than you could ever ask for,you have to bury them.Condolences are sincere and you know who and what
I am!

Very sorry to hear that.  Had a dog die myself back in the day and another stolen (long story).  I know how it feels.  From the pictures on FB, Albert seemed very friendly and happy with you.  Feel better soon, and my condolences.

Albert is actually getting better.  Looks like he slipped a disc in his neck.  Nothing that some serious pain killers and muscle relaxers/xanax and bed rest won't take care of.  His blood work shows that he is doing well otherwise.  He is a tough old boy. . . .he will be ok.  Thanks for all the good wishes for me and Albert!
