It might be lonely for the dogs because humans are supporting apartheid here on Earth.
People in the Middle East are being abducted and tortured for no cause. People are being gunned down for no cause other than that they approached a checkpoint without an ability to understand Hebrew:[https://www.sott.net/article/317433-Israel-outraged-that-people-are-catching-on-to-their-pathology] and [http://www.mintpressnews.com/israeli-soldiers-kill-pregnant-woman-brother-qalandia-terminal/215974/]
I believe that heaven and hell are here on Earth and throughout the cosmos as a combined energy field that may be similar to the theory of the collective unconscious by Carl Jung. What if all of our great spiritual leaders do exist but they exist in a combined energy field that we will all be joining eventually? Some of us may not recognize it as the spiritual afterlife though, if we are set on the expectation that only certain groups all sharing the same belief system will be allowed in through Heaven’s Gates. It is said that all dogs go to heaven and I think all humans do to but without love for all kinds in their hearts they may not recognize that heaven is already here on Earth and throughout the cosmos. We are one, one people, one Earth, one cosmos — even the mosquitos have their place.
Carl Jung’s theory didn’t include mosquitos. His theory suggested that the same species share similar symbols across cultures but as we learn more about other species of mammals we have learned that some symbols and behaviors occur in other species also.
Without mosquitos the animals and birds farther up the food chain would starve. The circle of life requires all of us to participate within sustainable limits. Overharvest this year and next year’s crops may be less abundant. The Golden Rule is a symbol of sustainability that crosses cultures — roughly: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Raining Hellfire Missiles down on civilian neighborhoods is not something that I would want done to my neighborhood so I would rather not have my country do it to other people’s neighborhoods.
The Inuit understood that the Golden Rule crosses species. An ancient type of fishing hook is specially designed to only hook fish of the best size to support a sustainable harvest. Small fish too young for this season’s catch can’t fit the hook in their mouths and it is too small to hook onto the mouths of larger fish that might be so large that capturing them would capsize the boat, which would likely cause all of the fisherman to drown in the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean.

All halibut probably go to heaven too, at least in my version of the holy place. In my version, we already are there but just in our physical forms — and it’s a Melting Pot of all types, a mixture of creation and chaos, organization and entropy. Without up we wouldn’t have down, without white we wouldn’t have black, and without black we wouldn’t have any shade in between.

The phrase “wisdom traditions of your culture” is an inclusive term that fits within my own view of a Heaven that includes us all, even the mosquitos. [http://www.teachingvalues.com/goldenrule.html]
6-14-2009, from my journal:
I must not forget to
connect to myself
to the world.
I will go out and meet life
everyday with joy,
Thank you world for giving me mosquitos. I’m sorry about the Hellfire missiles that we are giving you and all of your creations.
