It's A Doggy Bloggy!

This blog is dedicated to the love of dogs, every size, shape and color. Whether they have long fur, short fur or no fur at all, I love dogs and this is their blog. According to nationalgeographic.com, dogs were more than likely the first tame animals and have accompanied humans for some 10,000 years. There are recent articles that claim it to be much longer than that. Natgeo also claims that all domestic dogs, no matter the breed are members of the same species—Canis familiaris.

 

When I began researching information for this new “Dog-Blog,” I talked to a very learned woman I know from church who calls herself ‘Bird Brain,’ of all things. Birdy informed me that the name Caleb means dog. And the Caleb of the Bible had many character traits of our beloved dogs of today. In the Bible, Caleb was one of the twelve spies sent by Moses into Canaan. Most people know what happened when the spies returned. But if not, here are the words to a sweet little children’s song that tells…the rest, of the story!

Twelve men went to spy on Canaan,

Ten were bad and two were good.

What did they see when they spied on Canaan?

Ten were bad and two were good.

Some saw the giants strong and tall

Some saw grapes in clusters fall

Some saw that God was in it all

‘Cause ten were bad and two were good. 

Yes…Caleb, (the dog) was one of the good ones. In Numbers 14:24, the Bible says, “But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.” 

God bestowed upon dogs so many wonderful qualities. That’s probably why we consider dogs to be man’s best friend. The purpose of this blog is to lovingly show how some of the characteristics we find in Canis familiaris can be like those found in the best of the best and even the worst of the worst in the Bible.

I hope you enjoy it!
