I want to talk right now about a subject that really I have had to deal with and I’m sure you’ve had to deal with, the subject we all seem to have to deal with. But I want to tell you a story first, and the reason I want to tell you this story is I saw something on Facebook that was just amazing. My wife saw this. She said, “Hey, hon, come here and look at this.” What I saw was a dog, a scruffy looking dog, looked like it had never had a bath. This dog was jumping and biting the leash.
What had obviously happened, I later found out, or seemed to be what I thought, was happening was that somebody had found this dog, and they put him on a leash, and he didn’t want to be on the leash. I mean, he did not want to be on the leash. He was biting the leash. . He was jumping, he was running, and he tried to run away, and the leash would stop him and almost choke him. It wasn’t a choke collar. It was just a leash. It was an amazing sight.
This dog kept doing this, and doing this, and doing this, and finally the dog was exhausted and just lay down. When the dog lay down, the people came over and gently petted it, and the dog was so exhausted it couldn’t fight anymore. Because it couldn’t fight anymore, they stroked it gently, and then they went ahead and stroked it some more, and they talked to it in a very, endearing and loving way. The dog began to melt. The dog began to let go. The dog began to just receive. It was an amazing sight, and eventually they were able to pick up the dog and love the dog. Read More
