When I Get Raptured, Who Will Take Care of My Dogs?

Now I'm beginning to worry! They are laying down at my feet, confident in the knowledge that I am there to take care of them. I'm a good dog owner, but who will take them when I'm gone? Anyone left behind will be a bad person and, therefore, a bad dog owner. If only I could believe in a doggie Heaven, I would be less anxious. But then, are my dogs good enough to make it into doggie Heaven? Does someone know if doggie rapture is today as well? Who schedules all the different raptures? I NEED ANSWERS!!!

1. They'll be there before you.

After all, the Rapture is part of their grand scheme to enslave us all. Good doggy my ass!

2. Dogs go up too. Cats I don't know.

Dog=God So of course they get in past saint peter and his pearly gates, no problem.

Cat=Tac So, it won't be as easy. And all those cats that chilled with witches. Oh and Socks had email issues, wait when the Clinton's brought their cat to the White House did they have email then? Probably. So Socks committed double sin, used AOL, which is so not a secure email server, and was the Clinton's pet.


Ps. I love cats. I am not anti-cat. I have more cats then dogs.

23. "Pascal's Wager."

We can bet none of this will happen - and if it does - whoa!

Or we can bet it just might happen - what would we lose if it didn't? Not much.

So, if you're one to hedge your bets a little...you might make friends with a pet-loving atheist!

4. I thought the Earth was being hit by another planet, which would kill everything.

You and the dogs go together.

I was thinking we could see anything that big before it hits us, but we have a heavy overcast this morning so it'll just be whamo.

33. A fairly good flick.

The book wasn't bad either, however I was in Junior High School when I read it. So, I couldn't vouch for it now, some 55 years later.

But I like that film.

When Worlds Collide (Wiki)

35. I just watched it the other day - it holds up pretty good

But then I love even bad 1950s science fiction films. I also read the book and the sequel but haven't for at least fifty years.

My husband is helping a friend who recently lost his wife clean out their apartment. One of the things he found and was given is a copy of When World Collide. The other DVD he got was This Island Earth - and even better movie!

36. Oh my! "This Island Earth"

Indeed, a rather great film.
Trailer:


The sequel book to When Worlds Collide was, IIRC, After Worlds Collide. They were written in 1933 and 1934. Pretty good SciFi given that.

5. Dogs are better than people

Last edited Sat Sep 23, 2017, 02:35 PM - Edit history (1)

If the choice was between people getting into heaven and dogs, then your dog would get in and you wouldn't. So maybe your dog is asking, "who will take care of you when I'm gone?"

Here are a couple of websites to check out.

In any event, it seems silly to me.

8. Have you willed all of your worldly possessions (including all bank

accounts) to your dogs? If so, I will be over within the hour to pick them up. I will not be affected by the rapture, as I am a pagan.

Oh, the horror of it. Leaves turning brown and falling off on the floor.

On the floor?! Oh no! Who's going to vacuum my floors?

This is far worse than I realized, and getting even worse all the time.

17. You can forget the rapture! The televangelists and RW preachers overworked

and wrecked that deal. Jesus isn't taking any Americans, who are now the dis-chosen people. Only the non-human animals are going and that includes skunks and snakes.

34. I had a nice cat once

She was a calico, and most calicos are nice. But she got worms. She left little pieces of "rice" wherever she sat. So if you have a nice cat with evil worms, what happens? Does the cat get raptured and leave the worms behind, or does the cat not get raptured until she is dewormed? What if you are having her dewormed while the rapture is happening? Can rapture be delayed under certain circumstances?

I'm just asking for the cat people. I don't have a cat anymore.
