Do good dogs go to heaven?

Do good dogs go to heaven?

The question "Will man's best friend be there when we reach the pearly gates?" will be examined at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.

This Lifetree event — "Do Good Dogs Go to Heaven?" — explores the intimate connection between pets and their owners, and whether pets have a place in heaven.

A film will be shown that includes visits to a pet euthanasia expert and with pet cemetery caretakers.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.

For more information, call Mike at 272-6198, email him at mmcvey57@gmail.com or visit www.lifetreecafe.com.
