Hi Folks,

This first part of this blog today comes from an email which arrived from my Brother-in-law in Dumfries - is a really soppy story and I warn you that the message is a weepy one so I would advise you that you will need at least one hanky nearby.... OK LOM! - can you hear me ??
A Dog's Purpose? from a 6 year old.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.

Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ''I know why.'' Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live. He said, ''People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?'' The Six-year-old continued, ''Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.

''Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly." Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like: When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy. Take naps. Stretch before rising. Run, romp, and play daily. Thrive on attention and let people touch you. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do. On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk. Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently. ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY! "Animals come into our lives as gifts from God, for companionship, to teach us, and to heal us.

They deserve our very best efforts in caring for them"... Dr. Ihor Basko, DVM

In the same sort of vein though not a weepy one - have a wee look at this little 'doohickey' ......
I have no idea how they do this: but quite cute for pet lovers . Type in a command and see what happens... sit, roll over, jump, down, stand, sing, dance, paw, fetch, play dead etc. and... it's also very cute if you type in a command that's not recognized...!! Make sure you type in 'Kiss' too, but do it last.
