People often have a special connection with their pets, but in particular, the connection between a child and a beloved pet can be especially deep and lasting. I’ve known grown adults who are still sad about the loss of childhood pets.
And for those people, I hope that this comic is true. I hope that when we get to the other side, the pets that we have loved and lost are waiting there for us and ready for a game of fetch. And I hope for everyone else’s sake that dogs don’t bark as loudly in heaven as they do on Earth.
