Stretch, CoT, Name-o-rama (don’t forget downward & upward dog!):

Ten years ago January 30th, I brought home my very first puppy dog! He is amazing. Then, we got another dog 5 years ago and just recently had to put her to sleep. It was awful. But I am so grateful for the time with them and hope I am a better person because of their companionship – to me, they are models of Christ-like love…I believe in a God’s who’s big enough to use His creation to speak to us, and if even the rocks cry out His praises, surely He could use a sweet pup to teach me a thing or two!
