Adam might have called him "Lovimiah,"
because the first dog had all the love of God at Creation . If ever a creature was to be created that would personify what
God wanted in the human He made, this was the one.
And as time went by, it developed that he was smart too. He learned easily, and had all the qualities of the First Commandment
that God would give us, twenty-five hundred years later. He would accept abuse, and would lick the hand that had hurt him.
And he loved all kinds of people. It didn’t matter what their creed or color was. From children to the elderly, he
was there for them.
he had the patience of the man Job, who made that a by-word, along about the time those Commandments came about. He would
wait outside until his master came out, and we’ve even read of dogs who stayed by the grave of his owner, until his
own life ended.

There may be pets in Heaven. Read Isaiah 11:6, Matthew 18:18, and
Revelation5;13; there’s a clear indication that "creatures" will be there. And if should allow only one to
enter, my thinking is that He might say, "Let’s see…bring Me, Lovimiah
