I am 19 years old and having been listening to your show for six months. I love it but to be honest the last couple of weeks I have been a little turned off because of the new book. As I heard all the stories about other people’s pets I began to get annoyed. I love our dogs but never understood how others could obsess about them. All at once life changes. I believe that God uses circumstances to give us understanding . That most certainly is the case with me.

Sadly two hours ago we lost or sweet Great Dane, Daisy to Parvo. It was one of the most heart wrenching processes. We did everything possible to save her but it was too late. I was with her every moment. The hardest thing was doing everything in my power to help her but all at once watching her condition worsen. Parvo is so unpredictable at times we would rejoice when we though she was getting better but so quickly we lost her. This is a difficult time for our family. I am the oldest of five siblings ranging in ages 18-10. Death is something that by the grace of God we have not seen in our family. This heart wrenching incident was a wake up call. Lord help me to have understanding for other people’s pain, no matter what. With all that said I will be reading your book. Now I have a greater understanding. For those who feel the way I felt, don’t let a tragedy make you realize how short and precious life is. Take every moment as if it was your last and love everything you have because in a matter of hours it could be gone. Thank you for opening my eyes to understanding Mr. Levin.
