God's Roadmap

"Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck. Write them on the tablet of your heart" (Proverbs 7:3).

Dogs, Dogs, Dogs

I love to watch re-runs of "The Andy Griffith Show." I grew up during its era and can identify with the small town atmosphere because my home town was like Mayberry. One of the episodes was about Opie finding a dog he wanted to keep. When Andy asked why there was a rope around its neck Opie replied, "Well, that kinda helped him to follow me." More dogs kept appearing to join the first one until the courthouse was full of various breeds and sizes of dogs.

Peanut, Buster, Kato, and Weenie
Our house was like that this week. We have two dogs and our son and daughter-in-law came to visit and brought their German Shepherd and Chiweenie. (That's a contrast, I know.) Well, when they arrived in the middle of the night our dogs announced the news with a barking frenzy and door clawing welcome.

After that, it was scheduled mayhem. Three dogs have to be walked on a leash to keep them from running away, one is not completely potty trained, and the other one wants to bark all the time. Poor Kato, the German Shepherd is so old he just doesn't care anymore as long as the other ones leave him alone!

Despite all that we have a good time together.We love our dogs and laugh at their antics and cry when we lose one of them. Our family's visits together always involve our pets.

We wouldn't have it any other way.

How do you navigate your life with pets?
