I realize this may be considered by some to be a childish question. I also realize Scripture does not address this topic. My question: Do people here think (gut feeling, or other) that animals have a soul? I am asking because Wifey and I are confronted with an issue we have not faced before. Without giving details, we are faced with the terminal illness of our ten year old golden retriever Molly and the likelyhood that I may need to call our vet to perform the last task. The idea is heartwrenching. I have my own thoughts but not wishing to taint opinions, I will withhold them until others weigh in. Thanks so much.
