Why Ask Why - Bad Dog Part II
"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Col. 2:2
Yesterday I left unanswered questions about the bumper eating dog, whose name is Winston. So I am postponing today's planned subject to wrap up looose ends. You wanted to know why he would do such a thing out of the blue when he had no previous history. Someone suggested that he might have had a traumatic experience in the past with a similar looking car. So I did some research to find answers. Turns out there are none. No one knows why. The policeman had been giving out tickets, so his siren had been on. That was a suggested reason. This video is only one minute long, and you won't be disapointed if you watch it. It's amazing to watch the car traveling at a good clip, with Winston even seeming to pull it. You will see him actually pulling the bumper off. But in asking WHY, I wonder if Winston perhaps needed a doggie psychologist instead of obedience school. Or maybe both. Winston's owner is very grateful that his dog wasn't shot, which has happened in similar cases. This policeman was very tolerant. So for now, the story of winston will remain, like so many other things in this world, a mystery. And what fun is life without a little mystery?
"Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens - what can you do? They are deeper than the depths of the grave - what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea." Job 11:7,8
