Read this story very carefully!!!

Take time to read this story...you might be touched. I am.

LEARNING FROM EXPERIENCE

A dog was so faithful that the woman could leave her baby with it and go out to attend other matters. She always returned to find the child soundly asleep with the dog faithfully watching over him. One day something tragic happened.

The woman as usual, left the baby in the "hands" of this faithful dog and went out shopping. When she returned, she discovered rather a nasty scene, there was a total mess. The baby's cot was dismantled, his nappies and clothes torn to shreds with blood stains all over the bedroom where she left the child and the dog. Shocked, the woman wailed as she began looking for the baby.

All of a sudden, she saw the faithful dog emerging from under the bed. It was covered with blood and licking it's mouth as if it had just finished a delicious meal.

The woman got angry and assumed that the dog had devoured her baby. Without much thought she beat the dog with a wood to death. But as she continued searching for the"remains" of her child, she beheld another scene.

Close to the bed was the baby who, although lying bare floor, was safe and under the bed where the body of a snake was torn to pieces in what had been a fierce battle between the snake and the dog which was now dead. Then reality dawned on the woman who now began to understand what took place in her absence. The dog fought to protect the baby from the ravenous snake.

It was too late for her now to make amends because, in her impatience and anger, she had killed the faithful dog. How often have we misjudged people and torn them to shreds with harsh words and deeds before we have had time to evaluate the situation?

This is called SIN OF PRESUMPTION Presuming things our way without taking the trouble to find out exactly what the situation really is. Little patience can drastically reduce major lifelong mistakes. Who Are You misjudging right now?. Don't think what you think others are thinking. Take time to get the whole truth.

As true as this is, I'm afraid most won't read it through.

Good post!

I read this story the other day and it made me cry.

i don't leave my son at home or anything, but if he falls asleep in his playroom or on the couch, his big dog will sit by him while I do dishes or some other chore

You realize this is just a variation of a very old fable, right?

It's a sad story. But it's a truth. It seems to be a flaw of human nature.

You realize she didn't post this for the accuracy of the story, but for the moral, right?

Yes, I did, but it seemed some people didn't.
