Mazzella Here is a riddle for you. What is black, white and brown, has eight legs, and can do 60 miles an hour down a carpeted hallway? Do you give up&apos;? The answer is. two puppies playing together• Yes. we have a new puppy in the house named Lemmy. He came about when I mistakenly assumed that our male. Saint Bernard was way too big to ever get our little female mixed-breed pregnant. Now at two months old Lemmy is living proof I was wrong. He is already as big as our six-month-old Beagle pup, Snoopy. and I am sure he will one day be as big as his dad. too. Watchin Lemmy and Snoopy charging down the hall always brings a smile to my face. They chase, pant. and chew on each other. They bounce. roll. and run. They go faster and faster until their legs tangle and they end up in a pile of fur at the foot of the couch. I delight so much in the joy they bring. They remind me that the greatest hap- piness comes from a playful spirit and a loving heart. They remind me. too. that fur-filled carpets and teeth marked shoes are a small price to pay for a laughing soul. The theologian. Karl Birth once said that "Laughter is the closest thing to the grace of God." I thank God then for giving me so many four-legged comedians to grace my life. My house may be small and crowded, but I al- ways have a lot of furry heads to pet on. My furniture may be worn and fur-covered, but I can get a warm snuggle or slurp on the chin whenever I need one My home may not be the nearest place, but it is full of playful puppies and lots of laughter. I think God knew what He was doing when He brought dogs into the lives of people. Dogs help us to see that life is meant for joy. They help us to see that play can be just as impor- tant as work. They help us to see that happiness comes from within. They help us to see that love and laughter are the greatest gifts of all. May you share them always with dogs and people alike.
