All Dogs Go to Heaven

I believe all dogs go to heaven,
(it's the least they deserve after being 
our faithful and loyal companions
here on earth)...

It's there they'll be waiting for us 
and "HOME" will be better than ever imagined.

Have you hugged your pet today?

this photo was created for a special friend...
the barn in the background belonged to his family until the 1990's
his dog (the one in the foreground took it upon herself 
to disappear into the Black Hills at the age of 13
(we believe she wanted to die alone and
not be a burden to her beloved owners)
After weeks of searching, our friend has 
put her to rest in his heart.
I'm sure she'll be waiting for him
in Heaven
"back home"

Awesome photo. This is certainly a hard thing to go through I know the dogs do it to protect us but it is still hard. I hope you friend can find peace. I know my dogs are in heaven. B

Cant imagine my life without all of my furry kiddos! The muddy paw prints and extra hairballs are nothing to take care of when compared to the wags, wiggles and licks they give in return. :)

They truly do become such a part of our family.
I am so sorry for your friend's loss, and how very kind you are for making this beautiful image for him. He is truly fortunate to have such a thoughtful friend.

Thank you so very much for sharing with us this week at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I had a friend tell me pets don't go to heaven. We didn't stay friends.

Pets are such special parts of our lives. Sad to hear that your friend's dog was not found. And yes, I have hugged all of my dogs today :)

Karen said...

Oh, how sad. Our cat Screech did the same thing, just hid himself away one day and we found him later on. I didn't even know he was ailing. I know there are pets in heaven or it wouldn't be heaven for me.

Wonderful photo remembrance, what a special keepsake.

What a beautiful picture, and add me to the list of those who are also sure that our 4 legged family members will be there waiting for us.

Enjoy your weekend!
