I do hope to see my departed dogs in Heaven, however the verse you quoted does imply pets will be there.
Yes. God loves ALL of His creatures--including the winged, finned and four-footed ones. He is a God of the living and all who possess life will be welcomed into His heavenly abode. It is unimaginable that God would not include other creatures among the living. He pronounced them all "good" while He pronounced mankind as "very good"--that we must have dominion because we have been made in His image--but we are to care for other parts of His creation as well as for each other. The innocence of animals is a demonstration of the character of God, "...in whom there is no darkness." Only the wicked would be cruel to any of God's creation.
