tardog wasn't a blue ribbon champion, in agility, obedience, or the show ring but he was tops to me. I couldn't have asked for a more loyal, loving companion. The Lord choose him for me and thus he was a very special dawg. He had many nick names (his name was Star, registered name was Don's moon doggie rascal) like Stardog, Binkie dog, fuz face, mousey face, monkey lips, stinkie, and twit head, all very endearing, and all had very special meaning to me. I miss him too much to express with words, and he was more to me than I will ever be able to share, we were part of each others lives for 14 years.
Stardog taught me what it means to be faithful. He helped me to understand how God wants us to trust Him. He watched my every move, was sensitive to my emotions, moods, and general state of health. I could hang him by his toes (I never did) and he wouldn't even squirm, I carried him to his death bed and he looked at me as if to say thanks dad for saving my dignity. He was always a clean and dignified dog and at the end he was drooling on himself and on the last day his back legs wouldn't work good enough for him to defecate without getting it on him. As I was cleaning him up he said with those beautiful almond shaped brown eyes "Dad, it's time".So now my special little Sheltie Stardog is where ever it is that special little doggies go when they die. I read a quote on a web site that read something like this: "Shelties don't die, they get their wings and learn to fly." I know Star was an angel to me so I liked this quote. The scriptures are not specific about what happens to our pets when they leave this world but the book of Revelation tells us this; that Jesus comes back on a white horse, and there are several (6) other passages that mention horses. That my friends gives me hope that I will see my little Stardog again.
Thank you Lord for the 14 ½ years of awesome companionship that you gave us. For the unspeakable joy that you brought into my life through him.
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. (Phillipians 4: 6-7)
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isa 40:31)
And now I wait...
With much love and many tears,
Star's best friend.
