Abraham: One Nomad’s Amazing Journey of Faith by Charles R. Swindoll (Book Review)

\My rating: 5 of 5 stars Charles Swindoll is one of those authors/pastors whose work is biblical based. Part of a long linage of books he has written, “Abraham” is a book that dwells deeply into the archeological, anthropological, spiritual and biblical treasure that is Abraham, a man of faith that trusted God. Deeply written…

judy1-lgFor some British soldiers in WWII, the only reason they survived was due to the bravery and loyalty of a military dog named Judy. In 1945, Judy was awarded the United Kingdom’s Dickin Medal, which honors the wartime service of animals.

According to National Geographic, Judy, a purebred English pointer, began her career as somewhat of a mascot for a group of British soldiers aboard the H.M.S. Grasshopper.

When Japanese planes bombed the ship, the survivors swam to shore. Stranded without food and water, the desperate men were incredulous when Judy sniffed out a freshwater spring under the sand and dug deep to bring the drinkable water up to the surface.

Heat Stroke is No Joke!

While a local news station was out at a park reporting on the death of a bulldog from heat stroke the day before, they came across another dog who was very close to heat exhaustion, if not stroke. This is despite the warning signs at the park entrance.

Though you’d think people would get it by now, some people really don’t. To make matters worse, the reporter spent time talking to the ranger about the dog’s condition and showing them pouring water on him while neglecting to mention the number one thing they should have been doing: calling a veterinary ER. Once the clinical signs kick in, they can be very difficult to reverse without aggressive care and time is of the essence.

Once you’ve seen a dog die of heat stroke, you get really agro about this stuff. It’s horrible. You have my permission to lecture strangers if they’re doing something dangerous like walking their pug on a desert trail in 100 degree weather with no water. It happens every day. I hereby appoint you all members of the Heat Stroke Patrol. Feel free to share the infographic as you see fit.


Be safe out there.
