Dogs in Heaven

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the

scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered

dying, and that the dog had been dead for years. He wondered where the road

was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the

road. It looked like fine marble.

At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the

sunlight. When he was standing before it, he saw a magnificent gate in the

arch that looked like mother of pearl, and the street that led to the gate

looked like pure gold.

He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at

a desk to one side. When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me,

where are we?" This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.

"Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the man asked. "Of course,

sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up." The man

gestured, and the gate began to open.

"Can my friend," gesturing toward his 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 toward the road and continued

the way he had been going. After another long walk, and at the top of

another long hill, he came to a dirt road which led through a farm gate that

looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence. As he

approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading

a book.

"Excuse me!" he called to the reader. "Do you have any water?"

"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there" The man pointed to a place that

couldn't be seen from outside the gate. "Come on in."

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

"There should be a bowl by the pump."

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old fashioned hand

pump with a bowl beside it.

The traveler filled the bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave

some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was

standing by the tree waiting for them.

"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

"This is Heaven," was the answer.

"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 and pearly gates? Nope.

That's Hell."

"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?"

"No. I can see how you might think so, but we're just happy that they

screen out the folks who'll leave their best friends behind."
