Yesterday I visited my friend to watch a college football game. It was my first time at his house and knowing he has two dogs, I bought some dog treats to bring with me. One of the dogs, Indy, is a golden retriever. Indy stayed with me practically the whole time.
I was wearing shorts and Indy paid attention to my one bad knee. He would lick it at times. It is uncanny how dogs know when a part of our bodies is in pain. My knee was a bit worse than usual because I walked on it too much Friday due to taking the bus because of no working vehicle.
I grew up with a golden retriever. She was my best friend as a child. She slept in my room and always found her way to me under the kitchen table. Yes, I am a softy when it comes to dogs giving those sad eyes while I am earting.
When I think of dogs, the word faithful comes to mind. Show them a little love and attention and they will stay by your side.
If only we could be more like that when it comes to Jesus. I think about the love and attention he showed us when he died on the cross and continues to show us as he stays with us every second of every day.
I hope to visit Indy again and of course my friend Todd and his family too.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

If only Matt. I wish I was a lot less like a sheep (astray and wanderer) and more like a faithful alert dog. I guess I take after the human race too much…
Fortunately Jesus is faithful including picking us up when we are not
AWW….what a precious pup! 🐶
So super cute ! Your story reminds me of my favourite Elvis song “ Old Shep”
He is cute. He stayed by my side the whole time-although it probably had something to do with me giving him dog treats when I first arrived 🙂
Man dogs are the best, I love dogs
Awww Indy is sweet 🥰
Yes he is. Do you have a dog? I can totally see you with a Irish Wolfhound 🙂
Years ago we had Toi, a papillon. No dogs now. Toi was only 6 pounds. A wolfhound won’t work out lol.
Maybe a Burmese mountain dog
No way 😂
maybe a St. Bernard
I know what you need- A Great Dane. nice lap dogs 🙂
Such a cutie 🥰
Yes he is and a good friend 😊
Love this analogy.❤️
We could learn a trick or two from those fur friends when it comes to faithfulness.
I love dogs
Maybe you need a dog. You are great with them.
I want one. I love dogs
I hope you will get one soon.
