Bretagne, believed to be the last surviving 9/11 Ground Zero search dog was euthanized Monday. She received a salute from men and women in uniform, and her body was carried out drapped in an American flag.
I was sad when I found out about this story.
I know that Catholic teaching says that human souls are immortal, and animal souls are mortal… My question is:
Is it ok to treat the dog as a human soldier (drapped in the flag, salutes from people in uniform, ceremony, burial… etc etc) ?
