My parakeet died and my dog was scratching and whimpering at the my dead parakeets cage. Does this mean that he was mourning at his death and can distinguish between life and death?

I think so, specially when the dead one is another household pet. When my dog died at my front door, my neighbor’s dogs came closer, sniffed my dear doggy from a distance, and then they sat nearby for a while, with very serious looks on their eyes. Very touching.
