Requiem for a Fiddler Crab

    All dogs go to heaven, I’m sure Fiddler crabs do too.

    I absolutely believe we’ll see our pets again in Heaven. We know that the lion shall lie with the lamb. We know there will be a new heaven and a new earth. We know death was not a part of God’s original plan. How could it be a wonderful, perfect place without the pets we’ve known and loved? We have a loving God. He loves us, but he also loves all of His creation. Certainly when I ask my Father to return to me the pets I’ve loved, he’ll do so. How could He say no?

    My opinion is, how can it be heaven if the pets we loved aren’t there?

    You have my sympathy! The home in which we raised our two girls had quite a grave yard in the back. It held the beloved remains of countless hermit crabs, several goldfish (although one lived long enough to accompany my youngest to college), a much loved and spoiled hampster, every little bird that fell out of it’s nest within finding of my girls, and a beloved dog who lived to be 14. We planted an azalea over each grave (well, maybe not ALL the crabs). We warned the buyers of the house not to excavate the azalea bed, lest they think us mass murderers!

    Oh! So! Funny! (not the crab death, may he rest in peace.) You just described our every trip to the pet store. “Oh Mom, can I get another Beta?!”

    My son got into lizards when he was young (Thanks, grandma, for those Ranger Rick subscriptions), so on a trip to Southern Louisiana, I caught 2 Anoles, the little cute, green ones that run around everywhere, and brought them back in a little terrarium as a surprise. He LOVED them for, oh, about a week.

    On the upside, he did get back into them, adding to his collection when he got a little older. Aaaaand now he wants a snake. I am not feeding that!

    This line made me burst out laughing –

    “Everyone knows God especially loves fiddler crabs”

    I won’t debate the topic of whether pets go to heaven…it was the ‘especially’ that got me!

    This may help you! Warm wishes to you and your family (and especially Punky).

    Psalm 145:-9-10,13,15-21
    God loves all His
    creation and has made plans for all His children and the lesser creatures to
    enjoy His eternal Kingdom.

    Romans 8:19 (KJV)
    The lesser
    creatures await Christ’s return to redeem the sons of God so they, too, will be
    released from physical death to eternal life.

    Romans 8:21-22 KJV
    the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into
    the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole
    creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

    Revelation 5:8-13
    creatures recognize Jesus as the Savior of the world and praise God right along
    with redeemed men.
