    If dogs don't go to Heaven then why did Jesus say the lion will lay by the lamb? They're animals also. God loves all of us and wants us to do His will and not be foolish or slothful. Praise Jesus!!

    Dogs do. They did'nt sin.

    I believe all dogs and all animals go to Heaven. They did not sin. Some was make to be mean but thats on the person who made them mean.

    You can't prove that animals don't sin. You don't know their heart. Sin only lies in the heart and concsience of every being and cannot be seen by anyone

    I think people often ask the question about their pets being in heaven, because they want to be with them and that's what they imagine joy to be. What I don't understand about the question is that it sounds like an interview question- that if they find out their pets might not be there then they might not want to follow Jesus or be a Christian or go to heaven? To me, that's illogical, because we already know heaven will be infinitely ma real Christian? The best day on earth would be a million times greater in heaven.

    Secondly, the Bible is absent of any scriptures saying pets will be in heaven so its pure baseless speculation to say one way or the other.

    Third, I think it's silly to say all animals go to heaven and all of them have souls and can sin. So, annoying flies, mosquitos and ticks will be in heaven? And a dung beetle or a bacterium or hammerhead shark will read the Bible and go to heaven because they followed Jesus and avoided sin? There is an enormous difference between humans and other animals- we have souls and make thoughtful moral decisions and about right and wrong.

    God bless...
