Little Girl Mails A Letter To God After Her Dog Passes Away, Ends Up Getting A ‘Response’

From the moment Meredith was born, she had a best friend in Abbey, the dog. But as she grew, Abbey became so much more than just a pet – she was Meredith’s protector, playmate, and best friend. And sadly, as the years wore on, Abbey got a little older until she recently passed away – with Meredith by her side.

For Meredith, the loss of Abbey was devastating, even though she knew she was going to a better place. So that is when the young girl decided that she was going to write a letter to the only person she knew loved Abbey as much as she did: God.

Meredith wrote the following:

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in Heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick. I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

Love, Meredith

In her letter, Meredith included a photo of Abbey. She sealed the envelope and put extra postage – a gesture to make sure it got all the way to Heaven, as she informed her mom. The weeks passed and Meredith was still sad over the loss of her beloved Abbey. She asked her mom if she thought God had received the letter she sent. Her mother said she was sure he did.

Then, one day while checking the mail, her mom discovered a packaged in gold paper addressed to Meredith. The mystery package had no return address. While a little concerned, she still let Meredith open it.

As the little girl opened it and began reading, her mother watched intently to see who’d sent it. From within the box, Meredith pulled out the book, Mr. Rogers’ “When a Pet Dies.” Meredith opened the book, reading the inside cover. Her mom watched as her daughter smiled like she hadn’t smiled in weeks.

“What is it?” her mom asked.

As Meredith handed her mom the book, she started to cry, saying, “Abbey’s okay, mom. She’s with God.”

Her mom read the writing:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away. Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by. Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I’m easy to find. I am wherever there is love.

Love, God

It was just what the young girl needed to hear, and for the next few hours, Meredith and her mother laughed and cried together as they remembered their fondest memories of Abbey. She was a wonderful part of the family.

And I’m sure there are plenty of us pet owners out there who can sympathize with this story, pets are such important members of our families. You can watch the tearjerking video below:
