Do Dogs Go to Heaven?

Categories: HumorReligionAnimals

A man and his dog were walking along a road when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.  He remembered that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years.  After a while, they came to a street of pure gold.  As he got closer, he saw a man at a desk.  He called out, "Excuse me, where are we?"

"This is Heaven," the man answered.

"Wow!  Would you happen to have some water?"

"Of course.  Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought up."

"Great!  Can my dog come in, too?" the traveler asked.

"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."

The man thought a moment and then turned back down the road.  "Never mind," he said.

After another long walk, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate.  As he approached, he saw a man leaning against a tree.  "Excuse me!" he called.  "I'm very thirsty. Do you have any water?"

"Yes, sure, come on in."

"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the dog.

The man said, "There is a special bowl for dogs by the pump."

The traveler took a long drink and filled the water bowl for his dog.  "What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

"This is Heaven."

"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said.  "The man down the road said that was Heaven, too."

"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street?  No.  That's hell."

"Doesn't it make you mad that they use your name like that?"

"No, they're doing us a favor.  They screen out unsuitable candidates — the folks who would leave their dog behind."
