When David's first son by Bathsheba died, he said "Can I bring him back
again? I will go to him, but he will not return to me." (2 Samuel 12:23)
David implied that his son was alive, but not where David could reach
him at that time.
Other than that minor point, I assume you agree that _animals_ are dead
when they die?
