One of our rescue dogs, a Schnoodle named Boo Radley, was abandoned and left behind when a family moved out of a duplex in a neighboring county; he was left with food and water and was not discovered for over a week. He was matted and shaking when I first saw him within moments of when the landlord brought him to the rescue in the back of a van. I applied for him right then and there and brought home a shaved dog days later – one that still has so many issues, from flying insects to dings on cell phones to humans. I often wonder about the mysterious mosaic that is Boo.
scattered, torn pieces
tattered fragments, betrayal
deep-wounded heart scars
strikes of a cruel master
who could not know love
we reassure you
we cater to your strange quirks
because we love you
Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.

You named him well! You’ve brought heavenly grace into his life by giving him a home. God bless Boo, and God bless you.
