One of the strongest bonds that many of us will experience in life is the friendship that we have with our dog. Anybody who has ever had a dog in their life realizes that they are the best friend a person could have.
Dogs show unconditional love to their humans and they are compassionate, regardless of the situation surrounding them. It doesn’t matter if you have a designer dog or if you got your pet at the pound, they are beautiful animals that have a lot to offer.
Those of us who have had a special pet in our life also realize the heartbreak that is associated with losing them. Some of us may have had our furry friend around for years and the moment that they are gone is one that we will never forget.
Even though losing them is hard, it is a friendship that we will never regret having from the very beginning. The years that they are in our lives mean so much to us and, even though we may think about them for the rest of our life, we often remember them with a smile on our face.
That is why it is no surprise that a picture of a cloud that looked like a dog went viral on Facebook when it was uploaded. Thousands of people begin expressing their thoughts that dogs go to heaven.
“I know they do … and I know my dogs are waiting for me…and sometimes in my dreams they come back for a little visit … I swear I can smell them or feel their special lick.”
Social media users were questioned if they believed in a doggy heaven. Some people didn’t imagine that it could be real but others told interesting stories.
“I used to call my dog Sable my little arctic fox because she looked a lot like them just bigger. On my 30th birthday, the anniversary of when I would have gotten her, I was driving home from dinner and a beautiful fox ran across the street. It stopped, looked me dead in the eyes while I slowed down to almost a complete stop, and then walked away really slowly. It literally made me burst into tears because it felt like she was wishing me a happy birthday and anniversary. I miss her everyday.
And then this interesting story came from a Reddit user.
“We [have] dogs that kinda just show up on our property and then never leave. They act like they’ve lived here for decades. One in particular, a pit bull we named Brick, knew from day one where our property line was because we don’t have a fence in the front yard … He didn’t have a problem learning the layout of the house it’s like he knew it. I believe he was another dog we had before … He ended up saving my mom from a dog that lived up the road that had almost killed a previous dog we had.”
One person couldn’t explain how their new dog knew the old dog’s tricks without being trained.
“Our dog has known all our old dog’s tricks since he was a puppy, including complex ones like ‘play dead’ and he tries to do the ones he’s too small to do, like ‘open the fridge.’ He never needed to be house-trained or crate-trained. He hates the same types of dogs she was reactive to. He looks drastically different, and he’s a boy, but it’s like he’s the same dog. It’s very weird. So I think something’s going on. I usually don’t jump to supernatural explanations but I don’t know how else any of it’s possible.”
This family had a German Shepherd who passed away but a year later, they adopted an English bulldog.
“My last promise to my German Shepherd was to find a special dog that deserved a life of love, kindness, compassion and dignity and save them the way I saved her. I truly believe her spirit guided me to Duke that day to save him.
[When I] had an diagnosed arrhythmia and one night my heart rate was over 200 beats per minute while sleeping. Duke woke me up and made me aware of the dangerous situation. I got to the hospital in time and got diagnosed. I doubt I would be here today if Duke hadn’t sensed something wasn’t right.”
Regardless of how you feel, there is no doubt that dogs share a very special part in our lives.
