Pets Have Souls Too by Jenny Smedley

I really wanted to enjoy this book but it is a book that insults a reasonable and enlightened reader’s intelligence and does nothing to advance or promote the cannon of ‘spiritual’ non-fiction.

From the spurious introduction in which we are told in no uncertain terms that the authours relationship with her dog was one that noone else could ever achieve with an animal, we are led condescendingly through a series of personal accounts written by third parties which ‘prove’ the existence of an animals’ higher consciousness and life after death. What troubles me is that this book is poorly researched, poorly written, unscientific and amateurish. A story will be recounted and then the narrator, Jenny Smedley, will conclude therefore this proves a dog has a soul or therefore this proves a pet has self-awareness. On what basis? Second hand stories from people who were in deep distress at the time and wanted nothing more than to see their pet again?

In particular the stories where owners are grieving and come to conclusions that they see their departed pets are given no further analysis. Theres your proof, Smedley almost yells, animals live beyond death, end of story.

Not once does she acknowledge that there is a counter argument, a rational, scientific reason behind the events. If she had and had then built a strong case against these arguments I would be taking her writing and her work a lot more seriously.

If this book helps people who have been bereaved then great, its worth its weight in gold but as an interesting document of overwhelming proof, I think it sits on decidedly shaky ground.

The sad thing is, I as a reader, pet lover and believer in rebirth, don’t need convincing by an amateurish, sloppily put together set of arguments; I believe that all animals belong to the same ongoing process of death and rebirth, but the arguments could have been presented in such a better way. Shame that the sceptics and the cynics are going to tear this one apart simply because it was executed so poorly.

Do Animals Have Souls like Human Beings?

And will my dog do to heaven? We all want to believe our beloved pet will go to heaven.
