A Passing Observed

I woke up at 4:30 to a sound. Couldn't figure out what it was. Apparently it was our ailing Chocolate Lab, who died in the night. Here's to Buddy in memoriam of almost 10 delightful years in our family.

So do you expect to see Buddy in the next life..or aren;t you "that (John) Wesleyan? ;-)

Boy, you are managing to get online a lot from the middle of nowhere!

For non-Wesley folk, Wesley believed that animals got an upgrade in the afterlife. So Buddy would talk to us in the next life, maybe explain why he liked to get up on Mom's lawn chair cushions when no one was looking.

I'm less hopeful, but then again, God is full of good surprises! I suppose the opposite question is worthwhile too--will some dogs (and for Keith, cats--go to hell as well??!!
