    A Dog's Prayer

    My ondolences to you and your friend.
    Here is a pretty nice prayer that sums it all up I think

    A DOG'S PRAYER

    So do not grieve for me, my friend,
    as I am with my kind...

    My collar is a rainbow's hue
    My leash a shooting star
    My boundaries are the milky way
    Where I sparkle from afar.

    There are no pens or kennels here
    For I am not confined
    But free to roam God's heavens
    Among my special kind.

    I nap the day on a snowy cloud
    With gentle breezes rocking me
    I dream the dreams of earthlings
    And how it used to be.

    The trees are full of liver treats
    And tennis balls abound
    And milk bones line the walking ways
    Just waiting to be found.

    There even is a ring set up
    The grass all lush and green
    And everyone who gaits around
    Becomes the "Best Of Breed".

    For we're all winners in this place
    We have no faults you see
    And God passes out the ribbons
    To each one--even me.

    At night I sleep in angels' arms
    Their wings protecting me
    And moonbeams dance about us
    As stardust falls on thee.

    So when your life on earth is spent
    And you reach heaven's gate
    Have no fear of loneliness
    For here, you know I wait.

    So sorry to hear that. I almost lost my dog a week ago that way, if not for the kindness of a stranger who grabbed him and took him to his house and called me from Scooter's tag. Manly or not makes me sick to my stomach to think about it

    Nube reminds me of my son's first dog Chuck. He met the same fate. He was loved by all, as I am sure Nube was. I believe animals go to Heaven. How could they not?
