Aw, I'm sorry for your loss! Beagles are such sweet dogs.
I totally don't mean to sound insensitive to people with pets, but like you said, it's up to God to decide what He puts in heaven and just to be there would be an honor of the highest order.
Thank you. The other beagle is taking it hard with Bella gone. Surprising, since they fought like sisters all the time, tho the last year they did have a truce of sorts. This is a good example to all of us...speak and behave kindly to people while they are alive and not after they are gone.
PS: You didn't sound insensitive in the least, to me. Sounds like that person didn't have much of a foundation for their faith, if pets not going to heaven was one reason to leave Christianity.
