A definite read where we can learn a lot - thanks Dianne!.
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time,
The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me.
He said, 'People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life --
What a clever boy this story show we can learn a lot from children
I loved this and children are the best teachers. Thank you Dianne and Vallee.
Just had to share!
Thanks I found it very beautiful and wise
