Added DiffLines:

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When the gatekeeper says that Rip can't enter, Hyder's first reaction is, "There ain't no fleas on that dog!"


Added DiffLines:

* GenreSavvy: Downplayed. Hyder recalls stories of singing and dancing in Heaven and asks the gatekeeper why he can't hear any of that. He's easily convinced, though, when told he'll hear all that once he passes through the gate.
* HappilyEverAfter: Hyder and his beloved dog are dead, and Rachel is soon to follow, but they'll all be together in Heaven and free to do the things they love the most forever.


Added DiffLines:

* HeroesLoveDogs: Hyder dies trying to save Rip and his soul is saved because of that same devotion.
* HonorBeforeReason: To try to get Hyder to enter, the gatekeeper offers to sneak Rip in later. Hyder refuses on the grounds that he doesn't want his dog to feel in any way unwelcome.
* HumbleHero: The angel. He even remarks he does have wings, but he prefers walking.


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Hyder wants nothing to do with any place that would separate him from his faithful dog.
* PunchClockVillain: Possibly the gatekeeper. He's endlessly polite and reasonable; he only tries to talk Hyder out of leaving but never tries to physically stop him. It's just that he wants the guy he's talking to to be condemned to Hell.
* RightForTheWrongReasons: Hyder remarks that his afterlife would've been hell without Rip by his side. The angel explains to him how right he actually was.
* UndyingLoyalty: Hyder and Rip to each other.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Averted. The ending makes a point of saying Rachel won't fall victim to the gatekeeper's trick, either.

* BarredFromTheAfterlife: A man does this to himself. He's allowed into heaven but he isn't allowed to take his dog with him. He decides that an afterlife without his dog is a fate worse than death (so to speak) so he refuses to enter and will just wander the path in between heaven & hell forever. Turns out that wasn't heaven, it was hell. Heaven allows dogs in.

* MundaneAfterlife: Hyder is happy to hear that the heaven he assumed was for fancy city-folk has coon hunting and square dancing.

-->'''Creator/RodSerling''': An old man and a hound dog named Rip, off for an evening's pleasure in quest of raccoon. Usually, these evenings end with one tired old man, one battle-scarred hound dog, and one or more extremely dead raccoons, but as you may suspect, that will not be the case tonight. These hunters won't be coming home from the hill. They're headed for the backwoods - of The Twilight Zone.

-->'''Creator/RodSerling''': Travelers to unknown regions would be well-advised to take along the family dog. He could just save you from entering the wrong gate. At least, it happened that way once - in a mountainous area of the Twilight Zone.

Hyder continues a bit down the road then sits down. He figures that Heaven must be filled with city folk if they don't allow coon hunting, but he plans to stay with Rip. He sees a young man approach. The man is the Messenger and says he's been sent to find Hyder and Rip. The first gate goes to Hell, and the Devil always tries right up to the last minute to get someone in his clutches. They don't allow dogs because they can smell the brimstone. They head down the road to a plain simple opening and the Messenger assures him there's coon hunting and square dancing in Heaven. The Messenger assures him that Rachel will be along directly and won't have any trouble with the Gatekeeper.
