Dog Heaven  This is the title of a picture book that was released recently that aims to provide a comforting answer to what lies beyond the rainbow bridge.  The author wrote it after the passing of her 12 y/o Airedale Terrier Joe.  While none of us want to even contemplate the topic of our beloved fur kids passing, it, unfortunately, happens to all of us.  I came across this article quite by accident and of course it dredged up memories of Spencer.   I hope you read this article about the book.  It's really funny and heartwarming as well.  The book would make a wonderful gift to anyone you know who has lost a pet and I think it would be wonderful to help children with a loss of a pet as well!

I shouldn't read these things while I'm at work....I'm crying right now.  But this is such a beautiful book.

Yes...I think there is a heavenf for dogs, and if there is any justice at all we will see our furkids one day again.  I especially loved the part about unloved dogs finding peace with an "angel".  Every dog deserves a loving forever home...some more than others.

I believe in the continuation of the life force, that the energy that is life cannot be destroyed.  It goes somewhere.  We cannot see it until we, too, go to that place.  You can call it heaven.  You can call it the universe, or anything else, but it's all the same place.  I believe we are all spiritual beings living a physical existence on this planet.  That includes all life forces.  So yes, there's a "dog heaven" and I love to think it is abounding in unconditional love and life.  When I cross, I expect my loved ones will greet me, and the great loves of my life over the years includes a pack of faithful dogs.
