Do dogs have souls? (part sixteen)

For those sceptics amongst you who have not come to the blindingly obvious conclusion that dogs do have souls, here is more evidence. A dog in China is staunchly keeping watch by his master's grave and it is reported that even attempts to starve him into abandoning the grave have not worked. Perhaps the most famous example of this kind of dogged devotion (I know...I'm sorry...) is the story of Greyfriar's Bobby, a Skye terrier who kept up a fourteen year vigil. There are some doubting Thomas stories circulating on the web claiming the whole Bobby thing was a bit of a hoax and that the dog spent a lot of his time in local restaurants ( well - a dog has to eat, doesn't he?)
 Hmmmm...I wonder if Bessie would show this sort of loyalty?


  1. Try not to put her to the test just yet Sue.

  2. I thought the Chinese ate dogs with fried rice.

  3. Awwwwww!!!

    JCF, has something in eyes...

  4. Awwww, aren't you lot sweet? Even commenting on my daft soppy dog stories:)
    I shall certainly try not to, Ray:)

  5. Except you, Fr Biggin, that's not nice!

  6. Of course dogs have souls. You can see in their eyes. They love us and we love them - and that is where God is, in the midst of love.
