Where do Animals Go When They Die?

We are dealing with death and dying at our house.

Our horny toad, Spikes, looks like he’s on his last hop and breath.

It’s very sad for all of us.

This leads to some very serious, very profound questions from our children!

One of those questions: “Will animals go to the Celestial Kingdom?”

Hmmmm . . .

Just this week, while reading a fascinating book of essays by Hugh Nibley (to be reviewed very soon), I found an insight to that very question!!!

This is from Brigham Young in Journal of Discourses, 8:191:

“Always keep in view that the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms – the earth and its fullness – will all, except the children of men, abide their creation – the law by which they were made, and will receive their exaltation.”
