I LOVE my dogs dearly and I was wondering if they can go to heaven too (I would be very sad if they can't) I wasn't able to find anything in the Bible that says they will be in heaven however I found these verses in the Bible:

Isaiah 65:17,25 (NKJV) 17 "For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth;
And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
The lion shall eat straw like the ox,
And dust shall be the serpent's food.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain
Says the Lord.

Does it mean if/when God wipes out everything, that includes the animals? what about chapter 25, are those animals living in peace with each other created in heaven?

Here's another verse:
His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. (Matthew 25:23)

Ruler over what exactly is this? I'm assuming they are animals just like when God enthrusted the animals in Adam's care but then again where did this animals come from? were they created in heaven or from this earth?

Can anybody kindly clarify this, much thanks.

Here are some other denomination's views regarding the subject.

I am sorry Reya, but dogs are not going to heaven. I am so so sorry, but you can show them the love now before the time of trouble sets in.
Again my apologies, but Christ died for sinners and He'll create new dogs in heaven.

After destruction of roots and branches of sin, God will re-create the world, there'll be some good looking dogs too!
Thanks for the reply Joseph. I'm actually apprehensive to post this as the answer might be that they are not going to heaven.
It is sad to know that I cannot be with them it's not a matter of how good they look or how obedient or how graceful they run... it's just that I really love them as they are even if they have lice and looked scraggly at times. So I want them beside me and no other but you're right God has a lot more wonderful things in store for us.

This verse somehow lifted me up “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NKJV).

Thanks for sharing this verse sis Margaret :)
I find those church signs amusing :P

Have a good day :)
I have 2 dogs,Yellow and will be nice to have them with me allways:)
When we are in heaven I think we will not long for our dogs anymore, even if we can see a very, very cute Japanesse retriever, maybe we cannot feel sorry of our dog here on earth anymore. Cause what we love to see everyday is the beautiful face of Jesus and we will not want for anymore or anything. I just don't know If i'll be missing my girl in heaven. I'm really homesick for heaven now!
Sis. Reya,

Remember when God recreates you will have a new mind, the old mind will totally be wiped out and you won't remember the earthly pets nor what transpired on earth!

But you'll have find some good loving pets in heaven, you might even settle for a serpent!
Yes Sis. Margaret It's true we won't remember the old earth, but only what Christ did for us!

Rev. 21:4 NIV
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

Below is an extract of events Christ revealed to Sis. White, events leading to the New Earth. I recommend you to read Great Controversy Chapters God's people delivered, Desolation of the Earth and The Controversy Ended.

While the earth was wrapped in the fire of destruction, the righteous abode safely in the holy city. Upon those that had part in the first resurrection, the second death has no power. [REV. 20:6; PS. 84:11.] While God is to the wicked a consuming fire, he is to his people both a sun and a shield. [REV. 20:6; PS. 84:11.] {GC88 673.3}
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first

heaven and the first earth were passed away." [REV. 21:1.] The fire that consumes the wicked purifies the earth. Every trace of the curse is swept away. No eternally burning hell will keep before the ransomed the fearful consequences of sin. {GC88 673.4}
One reminder alone remains: our Redeemer will ever bear the marks of his crucifixion. Upon his wounded head, upon his side, his hands and feet, are the only traces of the cruel work that sin has wrought. Says the prophet, beholding Christ in his glory, "He had bright beams coming out of his side; and there was the hiding of his power." [HAB. 3:4 (MARGIN)] That pierced side whence flowed the crimson stream that reconciled man to God,--there is the Saviour's glory, there "the hiding of his power." "Mighty to save," through the sacrifice of redemption, he was therefore strong to execute justice upon them that despised God's mercy. And the tokens of his humiliation are his highest honor; through the eternal ages the wounds of Calvary will show forth his praise, and declare his power. {GC88 674.1}

Yes Margaret you got it right, in heaven it'll be only joy and joy and learning new things.

It wouldn't be fair to remember all what you did, because the Lord will forgive and transfer all our iniquities to the root cause of sin i.e. Satan. When all that is complete and the wicked have been destroyed, then He shall wipe away every tear, you won't remember that you lost your friends or people you knew to the devil. The mind will be new, the old things shall pass away, we'll be thankful day by day and follow the lamb wherever He goes.

There won't be any psychological torture for you to think about what transpired on earth!, It would cease to be heaven if you remember your sins, because in heaven there's no sinner. We shall be His people, and He will be our God, Jesus will be our redeemer, day and night we'll worship Him Holy, Holy, Holy and worthy is the Lamb! Oh how I long for that day, when I'll tread on streets of gold, speak to Jesus, and live for ever with no trace of sin.

I don't think we can know if our pets will be in heaven (though some people insist they cannot be, there's nothing in the Bible that says either way, so we'll just have to see), but...

Those signs were hilarious! :D
Unless yur dogs have asked forgiveness for their sins ... they can not enter the Pearly Gates.
Good Question. But only those who ask forgiveness can enter the Pearly Gates.
