Who Me?

Welcome at the feast

A Happy Post

I need a happy post today. I’m sad for friends who had to put their young Golden Retriever to sleep yesterday. So I have given some extra lovin’ to my pooch, Indy.

I also sent this from Indy to my friends, in order for “Moses’ humans to know that dogs understand the special role they play in our lives. Even some humans get it, like Gene Hill, who wrote this:

‘He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds;
my other ears that hear above the winds.
He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea.
He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being;
by the way he rests against my leg;
by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile;
by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.
(I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.)
When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry,
he clowns to make me smile.
When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
When I am a fool, he ignores it.
When I succeed, he brags.
Without him, I am only another man.
With him, I am all-powerful.
He is loyalty itself.
He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace.
He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.
His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things.
He has promised to wait for me… whenever… wherever – in case I need him.
And I expect I will – as I always have. He is just my dog.'”

But most heart-warming, and heart-healing, was this video that I discovered today. It’s made its rounds on social media for a couple of days but I only now got around to viewing it. (I’ll admit, part of the delay was because I was afraid it would have a sad ending. Nothing could be further from the truth.)

 

 

I already knew you were amazing, Indy. Science is proving it about all your species. Only God can make such an amazing animal.

Dedicated to Moses
