Hero has the life--a dog's life--everything one could desire. I anticipate his every need and want--
Three walks a day with ample time to sniff each and every blade of grass along the way
A bowl full of the best dog food--laced with joint supplement
A trip to the Doggy Spa once a month to have a bath, his nails done, his ears cleaned and a good rub down
He sleeps in my bed--on my chair--by my side--whenever I am home
Protection from things which might harm him--even when he is not so smart and goes after a MUCH larger dog--I snatch him up
Dog treats galore
A daily brushing
You get the drift--I have made Hero's life good----VERY GOOD
AND THEN---the FICKLE LITTLE SPOILED DOG---shows his appreciation by being enticed away by the first beautiful blond who paid attention to him-he dropped me like a hot potato.
ACTUALLY---I had a great friend and her mother come see me. We put Mom in my bed and we slept on the daybed/trundle. I went to brush my teeth and the little weasel jumped in the bed with my beautiful friend and proceeded to spend the night by her side. I NEVER!!! If you can't trust your dog---who can you trust???
HMMM--reminds me of our relationship with God. We love Him---and He showers blessings upon us---but let The World send a little enticement our way and we are off on a dog chase. Forgetting our First Love---rejecting Real Love--all in a quest for what we think will be better. All to find out--after our foray to the Dark Side---HE is The Real Thing--The Faithful One. Though we turn from Him--He never deserts us--never rejects us--is constantly and persistently by our side. WE are the fickle ones!
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness
