How NOT to Raise a Dog!

This time, on Episode #82, I share a VERY difficult story about a beautiful, amazing dog I had when I was 18 years old. It is  Chapter 7 from my book, Animals Taught Me That titled, Leben the Great Dane...Fawn of My Life. It's all about how NOT to raise a dog. I hope you don't become a hater after this, but if you do remember we ALL make mistakes. We ALL have fallen short of the glory of God. I'm so grateful He forgives as He cleanses that all away. My hope with this episode is that you'll see that even if you feel you've not done things right, there is always, always, always the opportunity to change that. I'll share next week on "how" to do better once we've learned better. 

In the graphic for this episode, Leben is represented in the middle. That is Shadrach on the left, my Neo Mastiff. And Fridge my Golden Retriever on the right. You've heard a LOT about Shadrach, and some about Fridge. The next chapter I do a reading on will be about Fridge (male) and my other Golden, Trumps (female).
