Do you want to hear a (true) funny story ?
One day, there was a sled-training cart with four Siberan Huskies in harness hooked to a gang line that went directlty into the door of a portable toilet in a picnic area.
The huskies spotted a squirrel in a field nearby chewing a nut. They started barking and pulling on the line; they pulled so hard that they toppled the portable toilet which crashed on the ground. By that time, the squirrel was gone and they stopped pulling.
Luckily for the lady who was inside the toilet, a man came over and helped her to get out, but she was covered in blue cleaning fluid and the dogs were licking her to clean her.
So the blue lady took off on her sled pulled by four blue-tongued huskies, I bet the people she crossed in the park must have had a bit of a fright !
This story was told in a great book "Chicken soup for the dog lover's soul" by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hensen. It is full of great true stories about how dogs "add years to humans' lives and life to humans' years" with their courage, healing and unconditional love. My Mum and Dad loved it and they told me some of the great stories, it was very moving and very funny.
And talking about Huskies, my good friend Kira's Mum is not well, please join me in praying for her.
Here's what some of my friends shared about bringing happiness :
