Hyder Simpson and his wife Rachel have been married for 50 years. They are simple country folk who live in a small cabin in the mountains. One evening after dinner, Hyder and his dog go off raccoon hunting. When the dog jumps into a fast moving stream Hyder jumps him to rescue him. He wakes up the next morning having apparently spent the night in the woods. When he gets home however, he and his dog are invisible to everyone around them, Rachel is dressed in black and it's apparent that he's died. Thus begins Hyder's journey, one that presents him with choices. Written by

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.

This is among my favorite Twilight Zone episodes. I find that I like it as much now as I did as a child 50+ years ago.
I find it a message of love and hope with more than a little bit of man's best friend thrown in. In my opinion it doesn't matter much if you believe in a religion or after life. What else are we here for but to make good choices to help and serve others? Loving connections with others souls is always worth more than all the riches in the world.
