I'm with the Dogs




My daughter shared this link with me and said we'd better hurry up and convert.

I'm with you. I believe there will be all sorts of animals in heaven. :)

Adrienne said...

Since I'm already Catholic, my doggies and kitties are all waiting for me.

I've actually had the theological discussion with several priests and they have all said there is no reason to not believe our pets will be in heaven with us.

The fact is, dogs do have souls but their souls are not quite the same as human souls.

Not only will dogs be in heaven but cats better be there too...otherwise what's the sense of going. (-:

Deanna, Adrienne & La Vie - yes, I'm looking forward to seeing all my old friends (not too soon though!). I was a long-time Methodist and was glad to learn that John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, believed animals would be in heaven. Although I'm not Catholic, I do have a patron saint, St. Francis, lover of animals. I know it's no coincidence that I was born on St. Francis Day. :)

Me too. My dogs give me a little glimpse of heaven every day.

Great post!

Adrienne said...

St. Francis rocks!

Cherie said...

Tish, I like how you put that! I suppose my animals do the same for me. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Adrienne, yes, I love St. Francis. He does indeed rock!

The local churches here have days for the blessing of animals!
I hope my dog and cat are in a good place too!

I don't know whether animals go to heaven or not. I do think that the person in charge of the sign at Beula Presb. Church needs to cut back on the caffeine and develop a sense of humor. Perhaps then membership would increase, as visitors wouldn't feel so lectured...
