Dogs Kids and Prayer
Our dog, the West Highland White Terrorist..."Booger Butt"...is getting old. She's 12 now. Pictured above is her, about 8 years ago, with a pair of my son's underwear stuck on her head. Don't ask...as it's still a mystery to us all. Anyways...she has a heart murmur...her liver is shutting down...she refused to eat for 5 or 6 days, and as recently as 4 days ago I was ready to dig her a grave. My ruvly wife prayed over Booger Butt, that Booger Butt would "go" peacefully. But do you think that rotten Westie of ours would listen??? Heck NO! Lately she has started eating again, is up, and walking around. Hmmm? Maybe she's gonna hang around with us awhile looonger time, I don't know. But now, let me inject this observation of mine...if you will. Well, it seems that this past summer our 12 year old niece from Korea (her name is CoCo) visited us with her 13 year old brother. The kids had a blast and CoCo loved Booger Butt very much! Booger Butt loved being petted and spoiled by CoCo. Anyways, about 5 days ago, my ruvly wife told CoCo about the dog maybe dying soon and CoCo insisted that Booger Butt could not die now and she began praying for her. It was probably about within 8 hours after CoCo started praying, that that dog of ours was eating! 3 days later Booger Butt was no longer just laying around...waiting for one of us to pick her up. No Sir! Booger is up and down the stairs, and looking better each and every day. Did God answer the prayers of that 12 year old girl back in South Korea? At this writing, all I can do is smile. Smile and give thanks to a God that answers the prayers of little girls far away. Thank you, Lord. LOOONG time!!!
