I hope it will bring some comfort and warm fuzzy feeling to Christians mourning or grieving a much loved pet!
For me, heaven could not exist in the absence of my beloved animals who have died during my time alive on earth, I cannot abide the argument animals have "no souls" so will be excluded from heaven on this basis!
It has provided much debate amongst myself and some family members!
A loving God, would have to find room for our faithful pets in heaven!
All my own pets have shown they are full of spirit and have souls as benevolent as the very best of humans I have known!
To me God might well be a wise old dog, as much as an old man with a beard, or goddess adorned in flowing robes!
