A lady lost her puppy and asked God to let her Dad take care of it until she goes to heaven. One day when the lady was of a rape old age she was enjoying the scenery in her favorite glider on the porch, when she suddenly died.
She remembered dying and was now looking for her puppy that had died so many years ago. She wondered where the road she was on lead.
After awhile, she came to a high, golden stoned wall along one side of the road. It looked like golden bars from ....Fort.. ..Knox..... The road turned up a long hill top, as you got to the top there was a tall arch that glowed golden in the bright sunlight.
The magnificent gate had art carving in the arch that looked like
mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. She
walked to the gate, and as she got closer, she saw a man resting in a golden
When she was close enough, she called out, "Excuse me, where is
"This is Heaven, Of course my lady," the man answered.
"WOW! Would you happen to have seen my puppy?" the Lady asked.
"No, we have no puppy here but come in and have all the drink and food you could want."
The man gestured, and the gate began to open.
"Thank you for you kindness but I must find my puppy first.” the Lady traveler Walked on up the road and has she did it changed to the whitest sand and was warm and cozy between her toes.
After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, she came to a beautiful road that she had nothing to compare it to, the road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.
As she approached the gate, she saw a man inside, leaning against a tree, reading a book.
"Excuse me," she called to the man. "Have you seen my puppy, I asked God to let my Dad care for it until I arrived?”
"Yeah, sure, James, come here your family has arrived.” He added speaking to the lady, “Come on in."
Around the corner of the Farm House came her Dad just smiling and waving has he walked. Behind him coming at a full running gallop was her beautiful brindle apricot girl mastiff puppy, with her ear flying and tongue hanging out to one side. Oh, with slingers ready.
They rolled in the grass with lots of petting and licking of the lady’s face. Finally she got up and asked, "What do you call this place?"
"This is Heaven," her Dad answered.
"Well, that's confusing," his daughter said. "The man down the road said that was Heaven, too."
Oh, you mean the place with the .. Golden Street.. and pearly gates? Nope. That's Hell."
"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use Heaven’s name like that?"
"No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind."
