OUR GOOD, SHORT BOOKS

THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “My 15 Dogs:  A 55-Year Journey of Love”

Dr. Carol Carpenter of Livonia, Michigan, says, “For Dog Lovers Everywhere.  My 15 Dogs: A 55-Year Journey of Love is a readable, delightful book. It belongs on the bookshelves of vets, dog shelters, the humane society, rescue organizations, senior centers, schools and dog lovers everywhere.

This book is full of tenderness, compassion, humor, sadness — and it tells the story of true love between the author and each of her 15 dogs. I laugh when I recall Alex with the purple tongue or Buster’s tail thumping against the oven hard enough to make a cake fall.

The author tells each story so well. I can picture Sugar with the bag on her head trying to get to the food scraps in the middle of the night. Then there’s such devotion as we learn of Sugar’s seizures and the author’s loving care. The imagery throughout the book stays with me. I’ll never look at another sunflower without seeing JoJo wearing his upturned collar from the vet.”

Long-Handled Spoons
~ Author unknown

A man spoke with God about heaven and hell.  God said to the man, “Come, I will show you hell.”

They entered a room where a group of people sat around a huge pot of stew. Everyone was famished, desperate, and starving.  Each held a spoon that reached the pot, but each spoon had such a long handle that it could not be used to get the stew into their own mouths.  The suffering was terrible.

After a while, God said, “Come, now I will show you heaven.”

They entered another room, identical to the first—the pot of stew, the group of people, the same long-handled spoons.  But everyone was happy and well-nourished.

“I don’t understand,” said the man.  “Why are they happy here when they were miserable in the other room and everything was the same?”

God smiled.  “Ah, it is simple,” He said.  “In this room, they have learned to feed each other.”
