I miss my dead dog.
    #329734 - 05/30/01 03:44 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

A man and his dog were walking along a road.
The man was enjoying the scenery, when it
suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.
He remembered dying, and that the dog had
been dead for years. He wondered where the
road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white
stone wall along one side of the road. It
looked like fine marble. At the top of a
long hill, it was broken by a tall arch
that glowed in the sunlight. When he was
standing before it, he saw a magnificent
gate in the arch that looked like mother
of pearl, and the street that led to the
gate looked like pure gold.

He and the dog walked toward the gate, and
as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to
one side. When he was close enough, he
called out, "Excuse me, where are we?"

"This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.

"Wow! Would you happen to have some
water?" the man asked.

"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have
some ice water brought right up." The man
gestured, and the gate began to open.

"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog,
"come in, too?" the traveler asked.

"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."

The man thought a moment and then turned
back toward the road and continued the way
he had been going.

After another long walk, and at the top of
another long hill, he came to a dirt road
which led through a farm gate that looked as
if it had never been closed. There was no
fence. As he approached the gate, he saw a
man inside, leaning against a tree and reading
a book.

"Excuse me!" he called to the reader. "Do you
have any water?"

"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there". The
man pointed to a place that couldn't be seen
from outside the gate. "Come on in."

"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured
to the dog.

"There should be a bowl by the pump."

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there
was an old fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside
it. The traveler filled the bowl and took a long drink
himself, then he gave some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back
toward the man who was standing by the tree
waiting for them.

"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

"This is Heaven," was the answer.

"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The
man down the road said that was Heaven, too."

"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and
pearly gates? Nope. That's Hell."

"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your
name like that?"

"No. I can see how you might think so, but we're
just happy that they screen out the folks who'll
leave their best friends behind."

Thats a good story.

Its in your heart, its in your art, your beauty.
Even in this world of lies, theres purity.

Aww how sweet, I just came in here to give a smart-ass comment, but I guess I might as well say it anyway.
"you miss your *dead* dog, I'd assume you'd miss aliving dog more."
that was lame.


Take off every 'zig' ...for great justice
