> An issue, not often addressed here, is the fact that many residents

> We don't talk about that much up here. We share our loved ones as they

> Last Tuesday morning a request rang out for pups not waiting for

> specific persons to volunteer for special assignment.. An eager,

> curious crowd surged excitedly forward, each pup wondering what the

> assignment would be.


> They were told by a solemn voice that unexpectedly, all at once, over

> 4,000 loving people had left Earth long before they were ready. All the

> pups, as all pups do, felt the humans' pain deep in their own hearts.

> Without hearing more, there was a clamoring among them - "May I have

> one to comfort?" "I'll take two, I have a big heart." "I have been

> One after another they came forward begging for assignment. One

> cozy-looking fluffy pup hesitantly asked, "Are there any children

> coming? I would be very comforting for a child 'cause I'm soft and

> squishy and I always wanted to be hugged." A group of Dalmatians came

> forward asking to meet the Firemen and be their friends. The larger

> working breeds offered to greet the Police Officers and make them feel

> at home. Little dogs volunteered to do what they do best, cuddle and

> kiss.


> Dogs who on Earth had never had a kind word or a pat on the head,

> stepped forward and said, "I will love any human who needs love."


> Then all the dogs, wherever on Earth they originally came from, rushed

> to the Rainbow Bridge and stood waiting, overflowing with love to share

> - each tail wagging an American Flag.
