I’m so devastated over my dog’s death (3 days ago) that I keep on wondering where dogs go when their earthly body dies…
I asked everyone. Some say they go to heaven (as the movie goes, All Dogs Go to Heaven), while some say they get reincarnated and one even said, nowhere, they just shut their eyes and sleep forever. I asked my son and he told me to Google it… and this is the first thing that we found:
I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I’m not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said, “It’s me.”
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair
I tried so hard to let you know that I was standing there.
""It’s possible for me to be so near you every day
To say to you with certainty, “I never went away.”“
You sat there very quietly, then smiled; I think you knew…
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over… I smile and watch you yawning
And say “good-night, God bless, I’ll see you in the morning.”
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out… then come home to be with me.
Now I wonder, if he went to heaven, can he like visit me and sleep in heaven with God and all the furbabys and move back and forth? That’s what it says in this lovely poem and my heart is hopelessly hoping that he is just here somewhere hearing the words that I want him to know.
