Amazing Dog Recovery

I love British comedy, from the Two Ronnies to Monty Python, to Fry & Laurie and many others.

When we're ready to get a dog, I'm definitely doing this as the children and I are on the way to get the dog.

I need a good backstory, though -- any creative ideas out there?

On another note, it can be crushing for folks when their pets die. In the midst of someone sort of musing on the idea in a theology class, "are there dogs/cats/parakeets" in heaven, a friend helpfully mentioned that actually for many people the loss of a pet is a source of great sorrow. He said that while he never speculated as to whether Fido or Fluffy was in heaven, he could say with confidence that all that God has created is in His hands. I'm more on the side of giving thanks for the creature whose companionship we enjoyed, but it was a helpful statement that sort of popped a hot air balloon of theological arrogance. Ah, seminary!

I would say that any pets that have accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior are in Heaven. Otherwise, I don't know what to tell you.
