Putting Your Pet “To Sleep”


3 years ago I put my dog out down. He was my first love. Am I being punished for killing him too early?

Dear Friend,

Your action was motivated by your love and your desire to spare your canine friend and companion unnecessary pain. God “watches the heart.” Have no fear and no doubt you two will meet again, though your pet may appear on two legs next time!

Blessings and joy to you!
