“I once convinced a teen ager that tartar sauce was made from ground up rats, by telling him to spell tartar backwards. “
We once convinced a bunch of my sisters friends that Young Chow Fried Rice was made from dog.
Personally I think snopes is a rumor.
Spell DOGGIE backwards.
Just go to http://www.churchsigngenerator.com/. And make your own. :-)
Probably from the church sign generator website.
Spell DOG backwards...........................
You may have heard the one about the dyslexic, agnostic insomniac; He sat up all night wondering if there was a dog.
I gotta learn to post quicker!
1) There will be animals in Heaven. They are part of His original creation, so why would Heaven or the New Earth not include all that was originally created for us in Eden? If you believe there will be no animals in heaven or on the new Earth, you may as well agree there will be no flowers or trees.
2) NO they do not have soles like Humans, but if God created the perfect companion for you once, one that he selected just for you, - why would he not have the power to do that again?
2) Heaven will not lack one thing that will make us truly happy.
This is from the back cover:
There are no words that can fill the emptiness we feel with the loss of a precious companion pet. Their unconditional love and devotion are missed as much as their splendid and unique personality. But we can replace the grief with joyful anticipation and hope, if we understand that there is a plan for them. The words of this book are offered to guide you to that place. You may begin reading as a skeptic, but you will end with a newfound hope and a lot of important things to think about.

Personally, when I envision Heaven, it's mostly animals. Little furry ones. I see myself playing a concert with a great band, and the entire audience is made up of rockin' groundhogs and chipmunks and squirrels. It's like a rodent-Woodstock. But hey, I could be wrong.
For this horse lover, all I have to say is YIPPEE!
With great bass fishing. Heaven’s got to be full of lunker bass, on quiet, pristine lakes with no other boats around.
I don’t know that there is a “Catholic” position on this (someone can correct me if I’m wrong.)
But heaven is a place of supernatural beatitude, not merely natural happiness. So it’s not clear to me how animals can participate in that, as they have no supernatural life, no grace.
As far as I remember they *do* in fact have souls, just not rational ones—the soul, the anima, is the animating principle of a body, and to some extent everything alive has one. Even plants, although they do not have sensitive souls like animals do.
What I always come back to is the “new heavens and the new earth” which awaits us at the end of time. Can anyone imagine an earth without other living things? It would be a wasteland, a void. And moreover, it would not be at all conducive to the *natural* happiness of man, who was not only created in a world with living things in it, but was set above them as master to tend and to keep them. Presumably we will still be doing that in heaven, as that is our nature.
So I can’t imagine that the heaven of the blessed is devoid of living things. I’m willing to bet that animals will in fact be there, just that they will enjoy natural happiness there according to their capacity and that we humans alone will enjoy the supernatural happiness of the beatific vision.
“Doesnt matter, Presbyterians really dont have a sense of humor!”
YES THEY DO:
My Evangelical Presbyterian Pastor told this joke in church:
Note: (The Presbyterians, even the politically conservative branch of it the Evangelical Presbyterians are not known to have spirited services. Nice services, but dont expect to see lots hands waving, hallelujahs from the back roll being shouted, Alter calls, that sort of thing. If you are shy, the EPC is a good church for you.)
The FOUR PASTORS
Four Pastors from different churches were sitting on a park bench, enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon, when they started debating which denomination would be the first called up to Heaven.
The Catholic Minister said certainly Catholics will be first, because they have such great compassion and have done such great works that is pleasing in God’s eyes. We have built the Worlds most beautiful churches, and hold on to the ancient Catholic profession of the Christian Faith, and have produced many martyrs.
The Pentecost Pastor said, no, we will rise first, because we are filled with the Holy Spirit, and we celebrate our faith with joyful music and inspirational sermons, bringing thousands to Christ each week. We certainly deserve to be the first called up.
The Baptist Pastor said you are both wrong, because we have spread the Gospel of Christ around the globe like no other, and have sacrificed much in doing so. And we hold strong to the words of the teachings of the Apostles, our brothers in Christ. God certainly intends to catch us up first.
The Presbyterian Pastor said all three of you are wrong. The Bible says the Dead in Christ will rise first, leaving the other three will jaws dropped , and the Presbyterian smiling with pride.
"All rocks go to Heaven" heh

Not just dogs. I like small furries. Rabbits and guinea pigs.
There’s no reason to hope in the abstract. The Bible is not silent on the matter. Romans, in particular, speaks eloquently regarding creatures being subjected to futility through no fault of their own. Chronicles compares creatures to a seed, sown in a natural body, raised in glory; of different types of flesh and different types of bodies, celestial and terrestrial. Job speaks to the subject as well.
No need to guess. They’ll be there.
