A man arrived at the Pearly Gates with his dog and was told, “You may enter, but dogs are not allowed.” The man declined to enter because he couldn’t leave his dog behind. He wandered down the road and eventually came to another set of Pearly Gates. The gatekeeper invited him to come in. The man replied that he wouldn’t enter without his dog. The gatekeeper told him that his dog was certainly welcome to enter also. The man said, “But the fellow at the other gate up the road said dogs weren’t allowed”. To which the gatekeeper replied, “Oh, that was actually the gate to hell and you were being screened. Anyone who would leave his dog behind doesn’t deserve to enter heaven”.
