The phone rang at 6:15 this morning. It was Dale telling me that the Golden Retriever Comfort Dogs from Lutheran Church Charities were at the radio station giving interviews on their work in Joplin and other places. He said to come over and bring Ferdie.
Don't ask me twice! Ferdie and I were in the car before I even hung up the phone. Do we hang up phones anymore? I guess better to say "before I pushed end call".
What timing! It was just the other day I posted the most endearing photo of three of these comfort dogs sound asleep as they were driven home from working a week in Joplin. I so wanted to see these dogs.
We parked next to their vehicle. Warning. Lots of dog pictures. I just couldn't stop myself.
Ferdie jumped out of our car and the three dogs got acquainted.
And Ferdie, well, he likes loving too.
Come on Magic, get up off the grass and get your picture taken.
Samantha gave Ferdie an empty water bottle. That's all he really needs to be happy.
The best morning of the week. Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good. His mercies come in many ways and many forms.
