Eloise, Rescued Mexican Street Dog
If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. – Isaiah 58:10
Having compassion for and loving all of God’s creatures is an important part of being a Christian. It’s God’s will that we help the needy, feed the hungry and protect the weak, whether they be human or animal. Below is the story how one person’s compassion gave hope to one lost and helpless puppy.
I was cruising on my sailboat in Mexico when I first saw her sitting in the street in La Cruz. She was gazing at us in a restaurant, hoping someone would toss her some scraps. I couldn’t resist that sad little girl and went out to her several times.
She was afraid at first but got over that quickly. She started waiting for me to come ashore every day in my dinghy. I bought dog food for her. She had mange, fleas, ticks, infected eyes, huge bald spots on her skin that were so sunburned, they were raw. I slathered 50 SPF on her every day while she was eating. A friend helped me give her mange & flea baths.
