Dogs in Heaven…

The head of the Catholic Church promises that some dogs, at least, do go to heaven

Pope Francis confirmed during his weekly address in the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Square that canines, along with “all of God’s creatures,” can make it to heaven.

The leader of the Catholic Church made the remark in order to comfort a young boy who was mourning the death of his dog, according to the New York Times.

“One day, we will see our animals again in the eternity of Christ. Paradise is open to all of God’s creatures,” said the 77-year-old Pontiff, according to Italian news sources.

Wolves

The Cherokee Indians did not hunt wolves because they believed a slain wolves’ brothers would exact revenge. They believed that any weapon used to kill a wolf could never be used again and must be disposed of. (Rare facts)photo(84)
