Saying goodbye to a good dog shakes the ground you stand on. Saying hello to him again will be heaven.
“I had a dog and his name was Blue, and I betcha five dollars he's a good dog, too. . . . When old Blue died, he died so hard, he shook the ground in my backyard. Go on, Blue, you good dog, you. When I get to heaven, first thing I'll do, take my horn and call old Blue. . . .‘Down boy. Good dog.’” American folk song
“Can you imagine that, if, here-after, one of God's little ones were to ask Him to give again one of the earth's old loves--kitten, or pony, or squirrel, or dog . . . , the Father would say no? . . . What a child may ask for, the Father will keep ready.” George Macdonald
“Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion. . . .” Ps. 103:13
