~All Dogs Go To Heaven~











"I think God will have prepared everything
for our perfect happiness.
If it takes my dog being in Heaven, I believe he'll be there".
Rev. Billy Graham


.....and cats, horses, rabbits, turtles, deer,
chipmunks, squirrels, parakeets, raccoons,
eagles, chickens, groundhogs, and on and on......


Have yourself a fab little day!
xo,
misha

No doubts about it . . .Snickers is soulful . . . Most animals are . . . Especially when they are treated with kindness and love, like Misha does, like Andrea, Diane, Gail . . . Jackie, Theresa, Suzie . . . . I could go on and on.

All creatures great and small . . . God loves them all . . .

IF my dogs aren't in heaven when I get there then I am going to turn around and leave. ;-)

A debate trough billboards? Really? That's only possible in America...
I always thought it was clear and easy; all of Gods creations go to heaven. But obviously not everybody thinks so. Strange.....

We have to wait and see for ourselfs than....

being that i've never had the heart to have a dog as of yet.. . because i would hate to lose them. see i've had millions of goldfish & a guinea pig named "Furball" ... & to this day i get really emotional of his death/passing (& i feel silly telling the story because i think do other understand that i loved my guinea pig just as much as they loved their pet, it was still a pet & i loved him, he was around for years, & i held him just like any other pet) ... it was so hard when he past because i felt i had something to do with it. see i left him out in the sun while i was cleaning his cage. forgot about him & my brother had to be called to bury him. i still visit his grave at my parents house all the time. i know in my adult heart it was not my fault. i know when i get to heaven he will be there to greet me. & i know that i will meet my parents dogs. i think that is one reason my parents never suggested having a dog. because they both went through their loss of their own dogs & it was so tough. loss is tough. i wonder if these folks that don't think they go to heaven have they gone through the loss of a pet or friend? makes you wonder? you have to go through the pain to understand. ok, now i am crying. why is it when we open those past times it still hurts. ouch. i wonder how people that continue have pets can do it & get over the loss of the other pet. i wonder if i should have gotten another pet right away to move on. will i ever move on? loss no matter whether a pet or human it hurts ... i guess you just get over it as the days go on or maybe it just gets easier as the days go on. not sure. puzzled. (:

*whew* saw the title to your post and thought not so good thoughts.

Glad it's just a battle between churches.

Have a good day Misha!

I also drew in my breath when I saw the title of your post. Glad to see that it's something as light hearted as this.

Here's the gist of it for me ... only Adam and Eve were thrown out of the Garden ... everything else got to stay. The people and pets that I love and have loved are waiting for me.

Laura said...

I love this!
I can't imagine my heaven without dogs and cats and horses...and all of God's creatures.
Except bugs and worms. They can go someplace else. :-)

Karen said...

Never seen this before!... If dogs don't go to heaven, then I'm not going either. And I know dogs that have a kinder soul than some humans.

Spot on Sister, spot on!!

LYLAS!!

Gaelyn said...

Ah, the hypocrisy of religions.

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement said...

That is probably the greatest thing I've seen in awhile-Battle of the church boards!

My favorite is the ending argument: "All rocks go to heaven."

I love my dogs said...

If God's eye is on the sparrow and he knows when one dies, how could he not have his eye on all His creatures? He created them after all and I believe we will have animals in heaven. There are definitely horses since Jesus and his army rides in to the battle of Armageddon on horses. Anyway, my God who created everything has a plan for everything.

Blondie ~ Vintage Primitives said...

I started to snicker when I was reading the battle over dogs in heaven and then I started thinking -
a} Heaven is like earth - only without the plagues, diseases, crappola here on earth. So of course, animals will be in heaven
b) If Jesus is returning on a white horse, where did THAT one come from
c) How sad to fuss over such a thing that means so much to so many. To the childless couple, their pets are their surrogate children; if the Lord cares enough about noticing when a sparrow falls, how much more would He care for all those creatures, great and small that WE love.

And on my last note, I have always understood that Presbyterians don't know if THEY are going to be in heaven, either.
That is the saddest commentary of all.(http://gamc.pcusa.org/ministries/today/predestination/)
Romans 10:13

I've enjoyed reading your blog.

Donna said...

Oh, I agree! I can't imagine that heaven would be heavenly without our dear animal friends!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Well, of course His animals are going to heaven; what a silly debate but, having attended a Presbyterian church for a while, I'd expect no less from those folks -LOL-. It reminds of a Bible verse...swallowing camels and straining at gnats...Matthew 23:24

bj said...

What a delightful post...I just love it.
It never entered my mind that there would not be animals in Heaven...I just know there will be....even little tiny sparrows, I think.:)

Thanks for your visit and following...
I am following right back...:)
