Gone Dog

by Julia Griffin

“Do all dogs go to heaven? Pet owners increasingly think so, says study”
The Guardian

I’m hoping, in my afterlife, for miles of breezy heath,
Deer-droppings, ponds, and garbage bins, with mammoth bones beneath;
Endorsing as I do the late Will Rogers’ testament:
If dogs don’t go to Heaven, then I want to go where they went.
