All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

Thanks, this is really wonderful!
At first I thought, pfff, because I do not believe that my beloved pets go to a different "dog" heaven, because I really wouldnt want to go to heaven if I will only meet my human loved ones there!

Doodlebug, I'm sorry for your loss, that is just way too much, so much loss in such a short time. I hope you get comfort and help coping by your other furry friends.
