“You think dogs will not be in heaven?

I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.”


Robert Louis Stevenson



Music: Angels Among Us



I just received this picture

Of a wondrous canine friend

My admiration for this dog

Will never come to an end


Her name is Kenya

She’s a huge Great Dane

She’s a Search & Rescue Dog

And her devotion to duty is plain


I first met her down in New Orleans

She helped us to round up many strays

She works with a police officer in Texas

And she’s willing to work, both night and day


She even helped us rescue cats

And accompanied us on reunions

She’s truly a furry angel in my book

She always places her duty, above fun


And by the looks of this picture

She’s taken in a tiny young friend

My admiration for dogs like Kenya

Will last until my days are at an end



“If I have any beliefs about immortality,

It is that certain dogs I have known

Will go to heaven, and very few people will.”


James Thurber

Some dogs are like God-sent angels. These past few days I had been staying home because of the extreme cold and snowstorms that hits Toronto, Canada. I have been watching "Urban Legend". In one of these episode was a dog whom a woman has rescued and adopted, but one day when she got choke by eating an apple and the piece of apple and the skin was lodged on her throat blocking her wind passage, the dog jumped on her so she could lie on the ground. When she lay there on the ground gasping for air, the dog pound on her chest area with its two front paws, and the piece of apple flew out from her mouth. It was unbelievable story, but it was proved to be a "True Story".

What a God-sent angel that dog is!!!!! It has saved its owner's life!!! The incident was documented to be true because a disabled neighbour was present in the house at the time this happened. The neighbour was disabled and helpless; but the dog had come to the rescue!!!

WE don't learn the basics of what is important in all life, because we have to much brain, being used the wrong way, they use all theirs to live and love, and they do that to perfection, they make heaven here on earth, if we only pay attention, and when they go back, some of us will there with them, but very few I'm afraid.
Bless you Ed for writing this! Jasmin Horst
