Do dogs go to heaven?

    Hell and Paradise
    There was a Person. Not one. He had a dog.
    Neither wives, nor families. And when he has died, there was nobody to cry about him,
    As the dog has died together with him...
    He goes in desert in painful searches of paradise.
    And around- There is nobody...
    Also there is no water. From high temperature and from thirst has burned down completely.
    And the dog wearily goes behind him.
    The road is infinite. Neither a bush, nor a grass and a sign.
    Dante also, I think, the hell saw such.
    The person hardly going. But the dog has helped him,
    Dog who has gone to scorching high temperature with him.
    Suddenly saw, (what is it?) - towers the city sparkles.
    And a huge inscription:
    "Enter. Paradise expects you"
    The gatekeeper together with him hasn't allowed a dog to come.
    The person without doubts and words has refused paradise.
    Here anything isn't present for him if he was born the such!
    And the mysterious city immediately in a fog has disappeared:
    The person has left. And the dog has left together with him.
    How many days they go. And how many nights... Who knows about it?!
    The person went and fell. He was tortured by thirst.
    Also he has forgotten about found and about lost paradise.
    Only the dog wearily went behind him.
    Time there doesn't flow. Doesn't dawn there and doesn't darken.
    All is non-significant, and tiny which seemed big.
    Again the city has arisen. Only it was much more modest.
    The person has approached more close. And the dog has approached behind him.
    "I was tired, - hardly whispering, - I was tired in a way..."
    "Allow to drink for a dog and for me. For God's sake"
    And the gatekeeper has told: "Come. We wait for you during long time. It is Paradise!"
    "I would be glad to come. As I dreamed of it. However,
    Behind doors there should be I with the friend ".
    But the gatekeeper has told:
    "Come together with a dog".
    The person has come. And the dog has come together with him.
    "What for Paradise was there? Where to us waters haven't allowed to get drunk?"
    And the gatekeeper has told:
    "It is good that there haven't let in!
    It was not Paradise, but it was the Hell"
    "Why on an input there a signboard precisely such?
    "It was only the deceit. It was only visibility of Paradise.
    It is the Hell. It for those who in a way leaves friends ".

    Exactly. If my dog ain't there, why would it even be called heaven? There's no point.
     
  4. Being raised southern baptist...eek, thats changed now! I was taught that animals have no souls and therefore do not go to heaven. But in the same hand they taught that heaven was perfection...this baffled me as a child and quickly lost faith in a religion that preached oxymorons. They have been my constant, loving, loyal companions through life, no person has ever treated me as well. They will be there lest heaven is not perfect for me.

    Your soul goes to Heaven. Man was created in the Image of God and is the only being with a soul. Even angels do not have souls. Man with all his terrible faults is closer to God because of his soul than anything else. (There is an old Jewish saying that in front of every man walking on this earth there is a chorus of angles who proceed in front singing 'Make way. Make way. Make way for the Image of God.)

    You go to Heaven...or your bodiless soul does...if you truly accept Jesus Christ as your personal lord and savior. Eventually you will be given a new perfect body.

    While dogs may sidestep original sin and hence have no need to be saved (they are pure at heart) they have no soul so won't be in heaven.

    Of course MANY animals are 'pure at heart' including insects. An ant has no mean bone in it's body. It is not slothful, or lustful, or greedy, or prideful, etc etc. I don't expect see millions and millions of ants running around in heaven.

    Yes dogs and other animals do have souls and the animals just like people are never forgotten. I mean would it make since for a artist or musician or parents to create something and not feel some kind of attachment or love for it? As for the whole heaven and hell thing no one knows were they will go whether its a person or animal. The difference between people and animals is that animals do things out of instinct and can not discern right from wrong and humans were the only creations with free will. I know our souls and the others do return back to the Father but I dont think animals can be placed in the whole heaven and hell concept because a dog doesnt say im going to go murder this cat. Its out of instinct and called a prey drive they may be domesticated but they still have their wild instincts which helps the dog survive whether its a pampered pet or stray. They dont know what they are doing is wrong. People on the other hand can meditate and plan out a kidnapping or murder and some do it for pleasure or to get back at someone and we KNOW its wrong. Animals dont have anything to answer too because us humans caused sin to spread to everything else. Before then we all lived in harmony and the lion and the lamb could rest together without fear of one harming the other.

    Well...I was told by a preacher once that my dogs don't have souls and won't go to Heaven.

    I'm Wiccan now. :lol:

    I just can't believe that dogs, which in MY opinion have a purer heart then most humans, will not make it to Heaven or "the other side". And I believe dogs have souls...my RIP Doberman girl Storm STILL comes to visit me and she has been dead for 7 years.

    I believe all living things have spirits as we do, and so there must be some kind of hereafter for them, hopefully right along with us!

    I do not like guessing about things I have no way of knowing of. That's just how I am, I like to have facts before I draw a conclusion.

    To put it simply, yes. Dogs do go to heaven. Why? Because heaven would not be heaven without all the dogs I've ever loved.
