Recently, some dog friends of mine brought it to my attention that the pope made a statement declaring something to the effect that ‘Yes, it’s true, all dogs to indeed go to heaven'. My initial reaction to this was ‘duh’, of course all dogs go to heaven. As a species, were some of the most lovable, loyal, dependable creatures ever to walk the face of the earth. Who doesn’t love dogs. People that hate life, that’s who.
