Do Dogs Go to Heaven?

It was just this year when I discovered this cemetery for K-9 dogs located in Clark, Pampanga. It was something amazing that there’s such a place to laid to rest for our hero soldiers.

The K-9 cemetery was established by Americans before they left the US Air Base. Now, it was being eyed as a full-fledged cemetery for pet dogs. The uniform, narrow tombstones were interesting because of the name written on it, Wolf is there! Aside from that, there’s a written code consist of numbers and letter.

I’ve read that Clark Development Corporation (CDC), intend to preserve it as something that could add to the items to attract tourists at Clark. Also, the K-9 cemetery may provide an answer to many dog owner’s problem. There are about seven million dogs in the country and rural areas don’t have much problem with disposing of dead dogs, unlike in urban areas where spaces are limited.

Cemetery may seem to be dark because of grief and death. But a place like this for our k-9 dogs is something that we can pay off for their heroine. They laid their lives for our safety, our people and our country. And this place  shows our respect and honor for them, as our hero soldiers!

Why should it be God when dog spells backward? Is it why dogs called man’s best friend? But one thing for sure, dog or any other pet shows closest thing to God’s love that human can experience. So, do dogs go to heaven?

    Everyone has a special place in heaven. As quoted in Luke 3:6, 'And all flesh shall see the salvation of God'.

    Since this verse talks about all flesh shall see salvation, this means humans as well as all the other creatures on the earth will enter heaven.

    I am glad they preserved that k9 cemetery.

    Nice article and photos!

    Nalungkot naman ako bigla dito. Naalala ko yung Spitz ko na namatay early this year, we weren't able to give him a proper burial.

    Sana may official pet cemetery dito sa Manila. =(
