We are not affiliated to any organization that take care of dogs. But almost a year now that we are feeding some stray dogs we saw in our community. We frequently travel to Manila Philippines by bus and we noticed dogs at the vacant lot near the bus waiting shed just across our village. At first my wife told me to give some of our sandwich to the dogs. She says her heart breaks every time she saw stray dogs looking for food on the trash especially on rainy days. My wife is a true-blood-dog-lover since she was young. Since then, we frequently brought them food and the dogs began to love us. They jump with joy once we approach them with or without the food. Dogs accepts us no matter what they had been through, being tied under the tree with no shelter on sunny or rainy days. God created dogs to show us how to be loyal and be thankful for every blessing we receive every day, no matter how bad the day went for them. We do not know who owns these dogs as they are living under the tree, day and night. Two of them are tied and two of them just stay under the tree. They stayed there even on stormy and cold days. We were amazed how these dogs survived on cold nights, without covering during sunny morning or rainy afternoon.
My wife named all four of them. She adorably calls them by name every time we bring them something to eat and makes sure that these four dogs will always be a part of our meal. If only our small house could accommodate these dogs, I’m sure my wife will insists to bring home these dogs to bathe and take care of them.
3 legged stray dog my wife calls, Misty
A three-legged dog probably because of an accident early on her life.
Here is Misty with her suitor “Bogart”
This is Kirk. He is a shy type dog with table manners. He doesn’t grab the food but instead wait until it was served.
Here shows Kirk tied on these rubble, with no shade to sleep on during cold and rainy nights. The last time I saw Kirk, one of his leg was broken due (a car hit him after he got untied from the rope on his neck and ran to the highway without looking)
This is Snow. He is an adorable dog. He is so sweet that he will just wait until everyone has its own share of food.
Snow is a dog with finesse and breeding, also with great table manners. After the food has been served, that’s the only time he will start to eat.
This is Marinela. She is a carefree dog. On the first day that we noticed her, she has lots of wrinkles on her forehead. But after a few months of feeding her, her wrinkles were gone. Maybe it was because of the love and care we showed her.
Marinela recently gave birth to two cute and healthy puppies on this rubble under the tree.
We were able to help the less fortunates but we do not expect to help dogs as well. Dogs are like humans that needs love and affection but only God gives us the wisdom to appreciate things as well as animals around us. Hope someday we can establish our own Foster Home for Stray Dogs.
Truly God’s word is alive that He says.. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not be afraid; you are worth more than many dogs and sparrows.
