Healing “tails”………

Truly…..I am not a dog person……what is wrong with me?

I have friends who are “dog people”…….some who SERIOUSLY are……but I have just NEVER been……

I mean…..they wander everywhere……..they chew up stuff……..they smell…..Oh, how they smell….

They “poo” in inappropriate places and awful times……..

They “tee tee” everywhere, like they just have to make a mark on everyone’s territorty…even at times on you…gross…….good gracious…….

They slobber…..ugh…dog spit…….

Then they rub up against you………double ugh……….They can get fleas…..awful itchy things….

Sometimes you can see them on their fur or hair…whatever it’s called

Crawling on them….triple ugh……making me itch talking about……….ever seen a tick on one?

That just freaks me out too………..

DI-SGU-STING…….
Try walking into a room with a bunch of them………..

The doggie smell….I am just not into that whatsoever…….I never really could really bear it….

I was afraid of them terribly all through life…..afraid they would bite me……

Wouldn’t you know I’m like a dog magnet when I walk in a room with one….or more….they’re all over me……

Never even bought a “baked sale good” ever…..

Always worrying about the creatures lurking in someones kitchen like the ones of which I just spoke of….and whether or not people were “clean” dog people or not…….

Ever seen how they tear up stuff and just woller’ around in the dirt and bite and groom each other???

They just really grossed me out…….

Really…….

Really…….

Until……

I saw them ……

Through my sons heart………

And past myself…………..

And I saw a different, soft, content smile on his face……

Well…..

I heard the rustling of another new season in our lives begin to emerge……..and I knew…….
This was right…

It was what was intended and planned…..and tucked in his towel on his lap………..
This was good…….and I would end up loving this time….because of how I loved him…..

And the “healing tails” would begin………..

Love,

Me……..

    I am the same way. I thought the same things that you did. The smell, the mess, why would you ever… But now Leah has a dog and I like her. She is pretty well trained and she thinks that she always has to be in someones lap. Very spoiled. I NEVER thought that I would EVER have a dog in my house. Well I have a dog bowl in my kitchen floor. Who would have figured? What you do for your kids…
