The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
~ Anatole France
I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding.
A dog joyously obeys the commands of the owner. It finds pleasure in the benefits that come through obedience. When one understands the loving nature of God there is joy in following His commands as well.
~ Pastor Bob
