Do you believe dogs have souls?

Do you believe dogs or other animals like cats have souls? I do.

I think that is not a black and white question. I believe that all life 'energy' is connected and interdependent. I firmly believe there is more than just this life. If that is the case, then yes, animals have souls.

However, I'm not terribly interested in meeting all the flies, spiders and various insects I've squished over the years!

Yeah I would be in BIG trouble with the spider spirits. Seriously-excellent question that may turn into a religious debate! Jax08 put it very well. I do believe we see those in our lives again after we die.

I agree with you both as well. I believe we get to see our loved ones again when we die, which absolutely includes our dogs.

I may not be religious but if there is a place animals go to when they pass away then I want to go there too.

You can look into your pet's eyes and know they have a soul. I seriously pray that I never have to look into any of the eight eyes a spider has to see if it has a soul. But I think I'll pretend they don't.

I believe dogs and pets have souls as long as on earth they are loved and accepted into ones family.

If not then they must return to earth until they find someone to love and to love them and only then they may spend eternity with them...

All of my dogs and my parents have contacted me in a dream about a month after they have passed!

On Earth

Dart, Border Collie. 8
Ranger, GSD. 1
In Heaven

Garm. Rottie 1990-1999
Mike. Border Collie 1988-2001
Dad 1928-2008
Mom 1929-2009
I miss you all so very much!

I agree they do have a soul, as I belive that all living things do.
