A few weeks ago, I was with Hubby and the kids and we had to stop by the bank. The kids, of course, didn't want to go into the bank, and they asked if they could go look in the pet store, that was next door. I (what was I thinking?) said sure. Well, now we have this cute little fellow..
But always there is a life lesson to be learned right? As well as a spiritual one! The puppy they wanted was a cute little Pomeranian. She was probably eight weeks old. She was quite adorable, but so little. I told the kids, let's all go home and pray about this little dog. "But she'll be gone when we come back!" I told them, that "if it's God's will for us to have that puppy, she would still be there." Well, that evening they had to go back to their Mom's, but we all agreed to pray about the dog.
The next afternoon, Hubby and I stopped back at the pet store. The puppy wasn't there. But, guess what, another precious little one was. He was so ugly, he was cute. I asked about him, how much etc. He was only $88.00. Wow, the other one was $400.00. I wanted to know how come he was so cheap. He's been here for 70 days. I asked to see his papers and everything. (I used to work at a vet clinic) I saw he had all his puppy shots, plus a micro-chip (encase he gets lost) I knew we had a bargain. The shots alone would have cost me $300.00. He also gets a neutered for free. Wow!
Since the kids were not with us, we took his picture and sent it to them on the phone. We all agreed. This little guy was the one for us.
They all had their hearts set on the other puppy, but how much better is the one we received. God knows what is best for us. We just have to seek Him & listen for His gentle guidance. I try to teach the children that God wants to be involved in every aspect of our lives. Nothing is to trivial for Him. Not even a puppy.
Also, this little pup was a breeze to house train. He's a Schnoodle, and his name is "Handsome", but we call him "Handy" for short. The cats are not too sure about all this, but they are adjusting. Lol!!
