Live Like a Dog

IMG_4528A dog is a man’s best friend. If you don’t believe this, put your dog and your friend in the trunk of the car for an hour.

When you open the trunk, who is really happy to see you!

C.S. Lewis, who loved dogs, once stated that dogs give us a hint of what true worship should be like. Think of it. When a dog is not with its master it is miserable and gets into all kinds of trouble, yet he is filled with ecstatic joy when in the master’s presence.

  • A dog is obedient.
  • A good dog is constantly looking to you for direction and giddy with the opportunity to please you.

That’s the difference between dogs and cats.

I tell my cat to “Sic ’em” and I get nothing but a blank stare or that condescending look that screams “Are you out of your mind?”

I tell my dog to “Sic ’em” and he will take off not even knowing what it is he’s suppose to “Sic.” Often he heads in the direction of the cat. A dog’s attitude is one of service and worship. “You pet me, you feed me, you put a roof over my head… You must be God!”

A cat’s attitude is rebellious and independent. “You pet me, you feed me, you put a roof over my head… I must be God.”

Yep, I think we need to be a little more like dogs.

Okay, now it’s time to hear from my cat loving friends.[reminder]
