  • There was this old email that got passed around: This guy died and thought he had went to heaven, there were these huge pearly gates with a sign that said NO PETS. So he kept on walking. He had hoped he would get to see his childhood pet bestfriend when he died. He walked past several more gates that said NO PETS. It wasn't until he came upon some open Pearly Gates that said ALL WELCOME, that his childhood pet came running up to him. He then knew he was in Heaven.

    My Heaven will have pets.

  • My Heaven will have my furry kids. How could it truly be Heaven without them?

  • I have a pet cat--about 18 years dead--who sometimes visits me in the middle of the night to lay on my feet and purr until the bed shakes. Not to mention a toy poodle about 25 years dead who walks across my kitchen tile in the middle of the night, her toenails ticking. So I'm guessing yes, they do go to heaven.

  • hm. There is something about the pet/owner connection.. I have a dog and he just seems to talk to me with his eyes and facial expressions. My pupster. I believe he can feel emotions but I am not sure about his next life.
