We know love because he loved us first. Much can be learned from our furry four legged friends. Actually, years is pretty impossible for any gene pool to survive per genetic load. I hypothesize that dogs were bread but over a few years some more or less than others. God does not create accidents. Thank you so much for this explanation. I used to love our dog who died in our hands and whose last look I still remember and cannot take another one. I guess dogs were called bad in the old days because they were not domesticated, they were more like wild wolfs or hyenas running in packs and maybe snatching babies and weak elders.
But the domesticated home dog were considered ok or good. My dog was loving, absolutely loyal and helpful. If my wife went out with him a minute earlier than I he would jump for joy when he saw me as if I was away for a month. He would do the same when he saw my wife.
He had enough love for both of us and our son and friends. He died 6 months ago and we still miss him. I am so excited and praising the Lord for this! This day! I can make Jesus my invisible friend, can't take that away from me! When I asked my mom "Why isn't there 'Love' in this family? Got married, had 2 boys and bought my first "schnauzer", after that, I made it a business "Schnauzer Hollywood", like today, I was thrilled to find out Schnauzers are known as "The most affectionate dog in the world" and "The dog with human brain".

NOW, when people come over to buy a puppy, I can say "This little celeb…"!!! I have stars made with their name and paw prints in, in the walk up to my house, and the front room is my business with "schnauzer" things everywhere! I have witnessed over "miracles, wonders, and signs" Ac "approved of God" , and am writing books on what I have witnessed.
For one, I had a miraculous healing with The Lord's hands in my back for 3 days and 3 nights! I had suffered 9 years from a fractured spine in a diving accident, at the point of death, alone, I cried out for healing! Then, after 17 years from the healing, I realized what those Scriptures meant as a whole…if anyone desregards my testimony, He will destroy! In revelations it says dogs are not allowed in heaven. The dogs will stay outside with murderers and idolaters sinners. How funny that dogs are the most loyal of Gods animal servants and seemed to have been created in order to guard the house, the family, the children.
I cant think of any animal that shows such selflessness to its master except the dog. Maybe they were dealing with the native Canaan dog only. But how many people owe their lives to dogs intervening between them and hoodlums or dragging them from a burning building. And how many videos have I seen where a dog visiting the grave of its master starts weeping and sniffling, and laying its body down in a surrendered pose as though the dog itself was injured?
More then my share. In the movie Omen, Damien was protected by a wat? Hades, Greek god of the underworld, companion was a 3-headed wat? In Egypt, Anubis, god of the underworld had the head of a wat? Make no mistake. The bible always compared men to animals in terms of their character. Doves,serpents, lions,and lambs. To be called anything unclean, meant that that which u r being compared to is also unclean. So dogs are unclean to have as PETS but not as a guard outside the house.
I really am shocked at some of the idiotic responses on this thread. I enjoy reading the BAR articles but am really going to avoid the comments from now on. The Hebrew pronunciations are different. I think it is because it came through the German language. There are many dogs in israel — most of them as working dogs, not pets.
They are valuable for guarding cows and sheep and goats in the fields. Few people keep pets in Israel as they are expensive and the apartments are small. A dog in evrit is kelev. This would be better pronounced as Kalev. The vowels are different. Dogs that were,feral, pariah, wild, lost, with out owner, were hated among the Jews, however, they had dogs that were allowed in the house as pets. A completely disingenuous statement.
Look into the etymology. They descend from a common ancestor who is extinct. The author needs to correct her misinformation. Alot of harm has been done to dogs in part because of this misconception. They descend from a common ancestor. Scientists USED to believe they were descended from wolves. No longer. The only slaves who were released in the seventh year were the Israelites who put themselves into servitude.

The slaves who were bought from neighboring peoples could be kept forever and passed down to heirs. Ps , yet the Lion is used to represent Judah and many other aspects of religion, how do you explaine the comparison. I see a reference to both of these animals at his feet. It seems to me that this reference gave the dog the power of the Lions mouth. If the Lion is no longer feared, no doubt he will send the dogs. If that is how you interpret bible passages I am no longer interested in any of your biblical conclusions on anything else.
The dog is unclean, revealing what makes us spiritual unclean, and spiritually stink. The cat does not have this offensive odor. Aaron was directly related to the sin of the children of Israel at Mt. It is our word the dog that makes us spiritually unclean, not our spirit the cat. Our word is the culmination of ALL of our false beliefs religious and personal. Truth is good. Lies are evil. They like the dog in ancient days are not to dwell in our spiritual house!
Thanks you, Ellen White for your rich raport. The Jews perhaps developed this negative relation between men and dogs. Was there the same attitude to the serpents which had cultic value in the pagan religions? In many respects the Jews adopted the contrast, and the Christians borrowed it from them?
Outside the Bible the Book of Tobias feels differently with the dogs. Such one followed Tobit and his friend to a long journey and returned with them From time immemorial, mankind has observed the characteristics and habits of animals and has applied them in a figurative or symbolic sense to persons, peoples, governments, and organizations. Examples pertaining to the figurative use of the qualities residing in an animal, or suggested by its characteristics, are listed in the accompanying charts.

Do Dogs See Ghosts?
They are dogs with a voracious appetite; They are never satisfied. They are shepherds who have no understanding. They have all gone their own way; Every last one of them seeks his own dishonest gain and says. The Father used dogs throughout History. He sealed the mouth of Lions and opened the mouths of Dogs. It is not the Dog that is evil, rather the Dog is sent to evil. As it is in some Nations where they confuse the teachings of the Father with their own mythology, so it was with Israel.
A lot of these fears and interpretations come from the stay in Babylon. They survived a frightening time in History when they, as it is now, were unsure of the lines drawn between their Father and the many other gods they were exposed to. They did the same with cats because of their worship by Egypt. The same thing happened to the snake and a few other animals in History.
They need to seriously put it in their minds that all things belong to the Father for his purpose and just because mindless peoples worship animals as if they are above man, does not mean that they are no longer possessions of the Father and created by the Father. Bad news for my family. One son-in-law is Sunni Moslem and a great man, very open and friendly and dogs adore him… Even strays will come up and beg for him to pet them. This is hilarious even when we sympathize with him Eventually, he learned to laugh at it, telling my daughter, well, what do you expect, he did marry one!
These slaves were taken care of given homes and food when they had none, they were given a job to raise a family, it was the order of that time. Slavery was not restricted to black people. The Egyptian s were cruel and they paid dearly for that. A dog that eats his own vomit refers to someone who goes back to doing the same foolish thing, they once did before. In my opinion their attitude towards dogs was wrong. However, I have seen many references implying that we are to have dominion over animals meaning that we are to be caretakers, not aggressors.
Being in a country in the Middle or Far East for any amount of time would solidify the view that dogs are not looked on with regard in these societies that still take many of their cues from the practices of ancient civilizations. I am not for cruelty, but the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction. Everything to its suited purpose. Where did that ridiculous phrase come from?

Furthermore it was Goliath the pagan Philistine who said this! As far as Proverbs is concerned, this clearly shows only the foolishness of someone a brat child for example who might seize a dog by its ears. Perhaps Caleb, being in the south of Israel, and coming up through Hebron, did not participate in the mass circumcision ritual at Gilgal in Joshua 5. The text at Joshua 14 may be a harmonization, to present a unified conquest, but several things favor a 2-pronged invasion, Caleb from the south and Joshua from the east which became the north — the different names for God in the south and the north, the different military and cultural traditions of south and north, the eventual secession of the northern states, etc.
Perhaps his fellow warriors, as men will do, decided to tease him about his most obvious and embarrassing distinction. One more reason for including Tobit in the biblical canon, but that may just be the pet owner in me speaking. Father of the Judean spy Caleb and, likely, the father of Kenaz.

No one knows about that story. All these unanswered stories died that day when he left us. The way I used to smile when I saw his shining eyes, those shiny eyes that used to fill my heart with happiness. Everyone thinks he died that day but what I still feel him.

May be with him gone — my smile, my faith towards the almighty has gone too. Everyone keeps saying he will never come back. He will never but I have faith he is watching me over at each and every step of life, like sun rays do in the days and like stars at nights.
What I do know is when I die, he will be waiting for me at the gates of heaven. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me. When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it.
When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.
His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me… whenever… wherever — in case I need him. He is just my dog. The misery of keeping a dog is his dying so soon.
Sermon I Refuse To Quit
But, to be sure, if he lived for fifty years and then died, what would become of me? There is nothing of value they have to bequeath except their love and their faith. I did know full well that there were just too many animals out there in need of homes for me to take what I have always regarded as the self-indulgent road of saying the heartbreak of the loss of an animal was too much ever to want to go through with it again.
To me, such an admission brought up the far more powerful admission that all the wonderful times you had with your animal were not worth the unhappiness at the end. Dogs, however, leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way. The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master.

Because dogs are the best! I wish someone had given Jesus a dog. As loyal and loving as mine. To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes And adore Him for being divine. As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog, Would have followed Him all through the day. While He preached to the crowds and made the sick well And knelt in the garden to pray. It is sad to remember that Christ went away.
To face death alone and apart. Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him mine, The old pal so dear to me. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.
