Story from Grade 2: Are there dogs in heaven?
Gawler in 1958, there was a photo of Sabrina on the front page of The News.
She was a "model" touring Adelaide.
At the same time in Grade 2 SIster Auburn told us that we could have anything we wanted in Heaven.
"Could we have ice cream in Heaven?" was a question I remember being asked.
Yes we could have anything good.The thorny theological question came up first in relation to having Protestant friends in Heaven, but what focussed our minds was:
"Will our dog go to Heaven?"
"No because they don't have souls."
So there was a catch.
Later, in the playground, we figured it out. The nuns would go to Heaven, whereas the dogs and Sabrina would not.So now we had to choose who to run with - the nuns, or Sabrina and the dogs.
