1. Where do people get off anyway, claiming dogs have no souls?

Not only do they possess self awareness (though possibly no consicousness of death in the future, but what does that matter?), they're a considerably better behaved species over humans if you assess by how well they live by the Creator's design. Dogs might make mistakes and they sometimes do things they know their humans don't want them to do, but that hardly equates to sin. So, since they do have souls and they don't sin, how in creation can anyone suppose God doesn't treasure them? How could they be turned away? NO way!

Send those Presbyterians to me. I'll straighten them out!

As for reading the Bible: when St. Peter was on the roof of the house and he had the vision of livestock being brought down FROM heaven, what does that say about even the lower animals? Will cattle, sheep and goats go to heaven but dogs be turned away? Ludicrous.
