This Week’s Tuesday Tale Is Your Story

Here is a post from LeeAnn’s lovely blog about pets, pet care, and our responsibility to living creatures. It’s about Greta the dog, and even shows me too in a sort of silly picture. :0)

Animals Are Feeling Beings Too

The tale of Greta told by Maria

greta-the-dog-mariaWe lost our previous dogs, Stormy (a Minpin) and Blanca (a Chihuahua) kind of close together. Stormy was almost 17 and Blanca 15 1/2 years. I was sad when Stormy was gone but really grieved over Blanca. We said we’d take our time, but Blanca died in October of 2014 and on my birthday in March 2015, we brought Greta home from the SPCA. She is part Dachshund and part Chihuahua.

We’ve had two-year-old Greta since she was four months old. She and her brother were given up to our local SPCA. Her papers said her former people “could not keep/do not want.” Well, WE wanted her! I would have taken her brother too but we live in an apartment.

For your Wednesday evening viewing fun – Greta

Greta the dog came into our lives as a rescued 4 month old chihuahua/dachshund mix whose papers said her owners did not want her and could not keep her. We’re glad she is with us. My sister Lu calls her a minx. Lu lives in a place where dogs are regularly abandoned. At least Greta was given up to a safe place, a good dog shelter.

Greta vocalizes a lot, runs a lot and leaps, loves children, tries to make up to cats, barks at anything with wheels. When she was very little, during a visit to my husband’s Dad, Greta had her picture taken by Dad’s wife Sally. Look at her scrawny neck – charming!

People love their animals, sadly sometimes more than other people. Animals, especially pets, have a lovely place in our life – gifts of joy from our amazing and glorious Creator!

Bless you all – Hi to Wally at Church Camp (have fun)!
