The pets, the people -- it is appointed unto us once to die. On this sin-cursed planet we each have an expiration date. Be ready for that. Later on comes the Rapture and the Millennium for believers. So lookin' forward to both! Come with! Jesus is the only way.

She’s not at all feelin’ good.

She’s a Jack Russel named Roxy’ many seem to have that name.  Been sadly having seizures and is coughing a whole lot. Man!!.. this is the hardest part about having a pet
Won't allow her to suffer, just won't!

"We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time." Romans 8:22

In spite of it all, just glad we can know and serve the one kindhearted God.. who knows the future, who absolutely cares for all His animals (sure, for us too)… and is absolutely against any of us mistreating or abusing them. Don’t want or need any other god – some dumb idol, or even me as my god. 

(She didn’t really want me pickin’ her up in the same way, and next to a goat. LOL! Christian and Haley like animals as well as us. Below). 

God’s word, the Bible says, “Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.”  Proverbs 12:10

“For every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird of the mountains, And everything that moves in the field is Mine.” Psalm 50:10-11

“Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds.” Proverbs 27:23

“If you come across a bird’s nest in any tree or on the ground, with young ones or eggs and the mother sitting on the young or on the eggs, you shall not take the mother with the young. You shall let the mother go, but the young you may take for yourself, that it may go well with you, and that you may live long.”  Deuteronomy 22:6-7 

“…sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.”  Luke 12:6
He (God) won’t ever forget about the sparrows – said that, "Yet not one of them is forgotten before God” Luke 12:6. 
Got her some liver for the vitamins and iron–and chicken slices. Might be a little spoiled. Was just thinking about animals..they were put here ahead of even the woman arriving.. there with Adam for a long? The ark (real) was “a type” of things to come in the last days..people and animals being saved. God indeed cares for animals too. Don’t really know what happens to all animals. But it’s interesting how even the inferences of the Bible can comfort you. 
And won’t forget about you either. Nope. Roxy hates baths, but just got one anyway. 
“If you see your fellow Israelite’s ox or sheep straying, do not ignore it but be sure to take it back to its owner.” Deuteronomy 22:1
“Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your justice like the ocean depths.
YOU CARE FOR PEOPLE AND ANIMALS ALIKE, O Lord.How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
All humanity finds shelter
in the shadow of your wings." 
Psalm 36:5-7 #nltCAPSmine
"Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with EAGER HOPE, THE CREATION looks forward TO THE DAY when it will join God’s children IN GLORIOUS FREEDOM FROM DEATH AND DECAY. For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains…” Rom 8:19-22a. Feelin’ grateful for the “2nd Adam” (Jesus) cuz where would we be.. if only the 1st Adam was here to mess things up minus the 2nd’s follow up to a lonely cross? “The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The LORD is good to all; he has compassion ON ALL HE HAS MADE.” Psalm 145:8-10. Interesting that John saw “an open heaven..” and “Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white HORSES.” Revelation 19:11-14. Just wonder how they get the animals into the Millennium down here. Isaiah 11:5-9, Isaiah 65:23-25 
“And he said to them, “Which of you, having a son or an ox that has fallen into a well on a Sabbath day, will not immediately pull him out?” Luke 14:5 
I love animals. The lamb and the lion will be in harmony in the millennium right here on earth. Like! No more death, no more tears. Don’t know all the details on that, how the animals get from here to there and the Book remains pretty silent on this subject, but that’s pretty encouraging huh. “And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little boy will lead them. Also the cow and the bear will graze, Their young will lie down together, And the lion will eat straw like the ox.” Isaiah 11:6. A “fatling” is from a feed lot ready for slaughter here now.. Not happening there. The beasts all become vegan again. : ) 
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27. Update: Roxy sadly died at 3:45p on 10/27/2017).
Eve, Adam, we did.. sin. Animals won’t be judged. But there's hope.. we each can turn from sin to Christ, and live again.. forever. Sure, you, me, we’ve all made a wrong decision, at least one and we need to be forgiven. Ask in faith. Remember, not to decide turn and trust Him.. is actually to decide. Need a second chance in life?
