Do dogs have souls?
There is an interesting debate over dogs and souls. Smash certainly shows a lot of emotion. Sometimes he get irritated. Sometimes he is scared. But most of the time he is very loving and caring.
According to these church signs, Catholic believe that god loves dogs and Presbyterians think dogs are rocks. http://www.ourrisingsound.com/2008/08/19/presbyterian-vs-catholic-church-sign-debate/
Here is an interesting article supporting the argument that dogs have souls: http://vetmedicine.about.com/library/viewers/uc-animal-souls.htm
But do dogs go to heaven? When Smash is laying in the sunshine chewing on a bone and being petted, he is already there. Since most people equate Heaven with the Kingdom of Heaven smash reminds us that Jesus said: Luke 17:20-21 (King James Version)
20And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
