I will live up to being the person my dog thinks I am. Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13:4-8
The above sounds just like our dog Priscilla-except for the rude part, ok & the self seeking too I must admit she is very self seeking at times.
I don't understand how anyone can have a dog and fail to recognize that they have feelings similar to our own. My husband has been sick & Priscilla found it necessary to sleep next to him when he was hurting. She has done this with me in the past too. When my son leaves for school in the morning Priscilla gets frantic. She literally sounds as if she is trying to tell him, goodbye Ian! The other day I was holding her so she could look out the side door window & when she saw my husband pulling the car into the driveway her entire body shook with glee as she wagged her tail 100 mph.
