Waiting for minimum critic reviews


One evening, while resting in his easy chair, cantankerous old Cornelius Basset-Hound takes his last breath. Suddenly he is swept into a brilliant tunnel of light, which takes him directly to the gates of Dog Heaven.

There he meets Saint Bernard, who turns him away saying, "You are not ready to enter Heaven... Who wants to spend eternity with a miserly old grouch?"

Confused and alone, Cornelius is befriended by Sirius, the Dog Star, and other angelic helpers. As his journey unfolds, Cornelius learns the value of generosity, kindness, playfulness and love.

Children of all ages will be delighted by this unique and inspiring vision of heaven.
