We lost our precious little fur-baby, Dusty, on 10/22/01. He was 16.5 years old! He was such a blessing to us and we learned a lot from that little guy! Here's a little of what he taught us…
Complete and Absolute Trust and Confidence
Dusty trusted us so completely that he would just be a limp rag-doll when we picked him up—so totally relaxed and trusting. He did not squirm, wiggle, or fight us and was not afraid one bit! He knew without a doubt that we would protect him and not let him fall or get hurt. If he had been sleeping when we'd pick him up, he'd just hang his little head down almost in a "U" shape to his back end! People visiting us just couldn't get over this—they'd never seen such complete trust. Also, Dusty knew US so well and knew that we loved him and that anything we had to do to him was an act of love and for his benefit that even when we'd have to doctor him and it hurt, he'd simply give us kisses that said, "This really hurts, Mom and Dad, but I know you must do it for my good…" I believe this is exactly how God wants us to trust Him—to stay calm and relaxed no matter what position we find ourselves in—knowing that we are in His loving care and that He will protect us and that whatever He is doing with us is done out of love and is for our good—even if it hurts for a while.
