My female boxer, RoxyMoxy had lymphoma, throat cancer. We took her to a nice doctor, a specialist, for chemo-therapy. After months of treatment, Roxy failed to get better. She was extremely ill and suffering terribly. It was difficult, but the only decision my husband and I could reach was to let her go and end her pain and misery. I took her back to her primary doctor's office. She was very weak and so sick. He's an awesome holy man from India, her regular veterinarian. He put her up on the exam table and then gave her a shot of medicine to relax her. He left the room and said he would return is a few minutes to give her the next shot that would put her to sleep. But, about 5 minutes went by and RoxyMoxy was still very alert (*wide awake). She was present time conscience. The first shot did not make her relax at all. In a few more minutes, the doctor returned and gave her the deadly injection. As he was injecting the needle and delivering the shot I felt Roxy's spirit leave her body and to my surprise I left with her, in no time at all I had traveled so far from where I was standing on earth and had traveled to another galaxy light years away. But, then as if no time at all had passed I was standing back at the exam table with the doctor and my dog's body. Her spirit had just traveled from our world to the next. Do all dogs go to Heaven? YES guaranteed, that is what I learned. The experience changed my life; I became a vegetarian, so I would daily remember the beauty of my puppy.
