Claim Responsibility for your animals I say…

 Know animals for safety

  A 22-year old pet-sitter was nearly torn part by 2 big dogs she had already met once before. 

  They had a baby in the house who the dogs understood were part of their pack, the girl was probably seen as an intruder, not part of the family, they protected their home and attacked the girl. 

  They said she had pet-sit for 6-years, but there’s no way a 22-year old could understand the finer details of animal behavior such as trigger points, much less the potential danger of dogs. 

  She probably walked right in thinking they were going to be the sweet dogs they were before, and was blind-sided. 

The owners didn’t seem to understand trigger points either. 

  It’s such a dichotomy to think of the thousands of animals who are neglected, abandoned or abused, and not realize that tho dogs can be protective, affectionate, and entertaining, they all have basic instincts and behaviors to one degree or another that should be understood. 

Sometimes I think Mr Dave Ramsey and Mr Cesar Milan should be required reading courses in schools. They both teach safety.

  Dave Ramsey teaches financial safety and Mr Milan teaches physical safety. Do they still have police officers and firemen talk at schools? Or career days? Or Home Economics? Caring for a home while raising a family is no easy task! 

   Anyway, the girl is receiving the best of care and kudos to her boyfriend for sticking by her. I’ll try to follow up the story after years and hope it’s a blessed one.

Who is St Patrick..?

From Wikipedia;  

 -Saint Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and Bishop in Ireland. 

Much of what is known about Saint Patrick comes from the Declaration, which was allegedly written by Patrick himself. 

It is believed that he was born in Roman Britain in the fourth century, into a wealthy Romano-British family. 

His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest in the Christian church. According to the Declaration, at the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Gaelic Ireland

It says that he spent six years there working as a shepherd and that during this time he found God. 

The Declaration says that God told Patrick to flee to the coast, where a ship would be waiting to take him home. After making his way home, Patrick went on to become a priest.

According to tradition, Patrick returned to Ireland to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity. The Declaration says that he spent many years evangelising in the northern half of Ireland and converted thousands.

Patrick's efforts were eventually turned into an allegory in which he drove "snakes" out of Ireland, despite the fact that snakes were not known to inhabit the region.

Tradition holds that he died on 17 March and was buried at Downpatrick.

 Over the following centuries, many legends grew up around Patrick and he became Ireland's foremost saint.
