My sincere thanks to Carol C. for sponsoring this site. What a nice gesture!
My husband and I bought Snoopy from a breeder. He was the cutest little puppy but was born in the wrong season for hunting, which he was bred for. He was a 15" beagle. It turned out that his "nose was too high off the ground" anyway, so we were really glad that we got him.
Norman had to take him home to his house, where he lived with his parents, until we got married, so they were nice enough to keep him from January until August.
Although Snoopy was adorable and we loved him to pieces, our neighbors were constantly complaining about his incessant howling every time we left the house. This posed a huge problem and finally, we had to give him to some people who lived out in the country. He was happy there though, and they adored him. I don't know when he died, but do know that he had a good life.
Snoopy loved corn on the cob and would eat it just like a person, from one end to the other and back again. We just held it and turned it for him.
Dogs In Heaven?
An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on. They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "Welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him. The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."
"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If he can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."
"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road."
So the old man and dog went on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside. "S'cuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"
"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable"
"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."
"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"
"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in.
We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."
The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."
"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"
"That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"
See you when I get there little guy! I know you're romping and playing with Mitzi, Jazz and Bandit, who are up there with you and I do hope you're all behaving yourselves around Scuffy, Fluffy, Smokey and Spooky and all the other felines up there!
Love Forever & Ever,
