332. Most Dogs Go To Heaven

It looks like your votes have helped the “Grandmother Dearest” essay sneak its way- temporarily at least – into the top 100 entries in the Consumer Cellular contest. It’s at the bottom of the list of 100, but the votes seem to keep slowly nudging it upward. If you’re the one responsible, please keep doing it.

As usual, all you have to do to VOTE TODAY AND EVERY DAY TILL AUGUST 11, is just put your little mouse where it can do its stuff and click HERE

With that out of the way, we can go to the dogs. 

I’ve heard that all dogs go to heaven, but I’m not sure I believe that.  What about pit bulls?  What about dogs that chew up everybody’s shoes, or poop on the living room rug? How about dogs that jump up on the kitchen counter when you’re not looking and eat butter and cake and other not-for-dogs stuff? How about those guys, huh?

I feel we all could use a little intellectual stimulation today. In keeping with today’s philosophical theme, please consider and meditate on the following internet parable:

A farmer named Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside except for a pet dog he had for a long time.

The dog finally died and Muldoon went to the parish priest, saying “Father, the dog is dead. Could you possibly be sayin’ a Mass for the poor creature?”

Father Patrick told the farmer “No, we can’t have services for an animal in the church, but I’ll tell you what, there’s a new denomination down the road apiece, and no telling what they believe in, but maybe they’ll do something for the animal.”

Muldoon said “I’ll go right now, Father. By the way, do you think $50,000 is enough to donate for the service?”

Father Patrick replied “Why didn’t you tell me the dog was Catholic?”

So there you are.  The moral of this story, my child, is always be flexible! Unless . . .

Well, there are always exceptions.

    thank you for posting this blog…I love these stories! I bet if you posted all of our pets, it would be huge! Wonder how many pets that would be counted within our families? That would be something, huh?
    Have a blessed day!

    Oooh, that’d be a fun blog, Chris!

    For what it’s worth, ALL dogs go to heaven, it’s the bad owners that don’t make it. 😉
