man’s best friend

When I took a shower this morning I heard a touching story.
And I want to share it with you guys. It happens in the South of Italy.
An elderly lady dies. She had a German Shepherd. The dog is missing her and this is his reaction.
Since 2 months, the German Shepherd walks to the church, when he hears the church bells ringing.
He walks to the altar and He’s going to lie. Occasionally he falls asleep. But if the communion is awarded he stands and  next to the priest who is giving  the communion
When  this is over   he goes back in front of  the altar and he’s going to lie again.
I think he hopes that his master will come to communion. Unfortunately.
I wanted to share this  and u know why??
These days the world is so cold ( and i mean  figuratively).
and this dog gives warmth. But one thing I hope that some one will give him warmth again.media_xll_5484365

    Wishing you a Peaceful Warm Sunday this bitter cold day…
    Love Sue xox

      • Yes to both Mj, we need good stories to warm our hearts. and Yes I stayed inside also.. in fact its still snowing this morning Mon here.. I go to work this afternoon at 2-30pm and stay all night returning in the morning, So I am hoping the snow stops soon. Its not the main roads thats the problem but the sides roads I travel on.. I so dislike driving in the snow.

        Hi hun! 🙂

        The ebook versions (There are two so choose carefully!) can be found at and the first is called ‘Jabberweil Hunt’ while the second is called: ‘Songs of Angels’.

        I have no idea when they’ll come out as hard copy, but Red is on top of the situation! 🙂

        Remember: The Kindle version only works on a Kindle e-reader while the epub version can be viewed on a PC by downloading a freeware program called Calibre FIRST! 🙂

        Love and hugs!

    I read this on our news here and it really is a heartwrenching story.

  6. Your story of a dog’s devotion to his owner leaves me assured his bond is never broken. Such is the strength of the relationship between dogs and people. This story has been a beautiful reminder of this MJ. love, Eddie
