    A man and his dog

    A man and his dog were walking along a road.

    The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred

    to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and

    that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years.

    He wondered where the road was leading them.



    After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall

    along one side of the road. It looked like fine

    marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by

    a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was

    standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the

    arch that looked like Mother of Pearl, and the

    street that led to the gate looked like pure gold.



    He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got

    closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side. When he

    was close enough, he called out,

    "Excuse me, where are we?"



    "This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.

    "Wow! Would you happen to have some water?"

    the man asked.

    "Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some

    ice water brought right up." The man gestured, and

    the gate began to open.



    "Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog,

    "come in, too?" the traveler asked.

    "I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."

    The man thought a moment and then turned back toward

    the road and continued the way he had been going

    with his dog.



    After another long walk, and at the top of another

    long hill, he came to a dirt road which led through

    a farm gate that looked as if it had never been

    closed.



    As he approached the

    gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree

    and reading a book.



    "Excuse me!" he called to the reader. "Do you have

    any water?"

    "Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there". The man

    pointed to a place that couldn't be seen from

    outside the gate. "Come on in."

    "How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to

    the dog.

    "There should be a bowl by the pump." They went

    through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old

    fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.



    The traveler filled the bowl and took a long drink

    himself, then he gave some to the dog. When they

    were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man

    who was standing by the tree waiting for them. "What

    do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

    "This is Heaven," he answered.

    "Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The

    man down the road said that was Heaven, too."

    "Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and

    pearly gates? Nope. That's Hell."

    "Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name

    like that?"

    "No. I can see how you might think so, but we're

    just happy that they screen out the folks who'll

    leave their best friends behind."

    If there are no dogs (or cats for that matter) in heaven, then I don't want to go.
