Dogs Days Repost

Courtesy photobucket
Two of our dogs usually have brown noses, because they dig in our yard a lot. 

Our older Lab, Buck keeps his nose clean because he usually watches; and when the other two discover a mole, old Buck grabs it right quick. 

One day recently, my husband heard a great big commotion, and taking a paper towel he was hoping to retrieve what ever it was.  There was Old Buck carrying this mole in his mouth. 

Buck was not about to give it up, and soon it disappeared from sight.  Ugggh, but that is the way it is with dogs.

This morning, our dogs were again having another hullabaloo, so out went my husband to investigate what all the fuss was about.

He discovered an injured small hawk hopping around in our yard.  Old dog Buck went to the bird and almost tenderly put it into his mouth. 

My husband was there in time to rescue it, and place it on the other side of our fence.  Off it went, hopefully to recover and get better.

I am reminded that Jesus told us to be kind and to think of others, those who are hurting, the poor, and afflicted.  Some need to be rescued and cared for.

There are agencies in each of our neighborhoods that can use volunteers, either as helpers or making contributions with money or supplies. 

Your church or organization may be one that helps others.  Do get involved in some way, always remembering the Bible story of the good man who stopped in the road to help a wounded person, someone he did not know and was not of his race and religion.

Luke 10:34  And the Good Samaritan went to the injured man, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

Love the Lord, Love your fellow man, and do not forget to even love yourself. 

Luke 10:27  And Jesus answered and said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and your neighbor as yourself.”

Being gentle with the world is Christ in us. I think we need to keep in mind if they don't know Christ then they are all wounded in need of care. Excellent reminder, Hazel.

Our dog Lola would not have been so gentle!

What a wonderful story of true friendship and dogs!

May we follow Christ's example of loving one another. We had golden retrievers growing up, and they were always "retrieving" baseball mitts, articles of clothing, etc. from neighbor's yards. Then we would have quite a job trying to return the items to their rightful owners!
Thanks for the great post & God bless,

We had a half collie growing up, he was a good dog. My Dad was so mean to him but Tiny just kept coming back hoping for a pat on the head. If animals need love a human must need twice as much. Good reminded Hazel..wise thoughts for the day.

I sometimes have liked sweet and nice dogs or cats. -- REALLY miss having a cat! I haven't liked the ones killing things, in general, though. Had quite a cat about 20 years ago; he'd kill anything! [In our present payment requirements, though, can't have a pet, except maybe a turtle or couple fish -- until the laws require those to be listed at the Humane spot.]
