Faith, you miss the last line of the Supreme Court Decision presented above:
"Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State."
Key being a person of another race. Hence, dogs and other animals are not covered.
As gay people are part of a race as well, they are covered. By this analysis the government can't pass a constitutional ammendment banning gay marriages.
