I feel as though our Snowball has taught me and my husband sooooo many lessons. I have thought about it often. Especially during this past year ... I see Snowball as my precious doggie Earth Angel. It reminds me once again, that Snowball's vet and Godmother, has more than once said that ... "Snowball has the soul of an Angel."
A long time ago I read a (Christian) book called, Lessons From A Sheep Dog by Phillip Keller. It was about how his border collie taught him more about God than anything else.
A great book about understanding the emotion between a human and a dog is by animal behaviorist Patricia McConnell: For The Love Of A Dog
I really believe that dogs are special creatures sent from God to comfort us and teach us about unconditional love, loyalty, and honesty. It's really hard for me not to like any dog. They are awesome, and Malts really are the best!
