A True Story of Transforming Love, by Phillip Keller
What you see is not always what you get - and this true story of a man and his dog is no exception. Woven just under the surface of this simple parable, Keller presents profound spiritual truth. It is the story of Lass, a worthless animal thought to be untrainable, who becomes a magnificent and valuable sheepdog - not terribly unlike how God's love can transform our worst characteristics into blessings that serve to further His Kingdom. Allow yourself to see Biblical truth in this classic tale of what can happen when you yield to the Master.
My thoughts: Being a dog person myself, I was drawn to the book the second I saw the cover and purchased it immediately. The heroine of the story has been mistreated horribly, but someone new wants to give her a chance at being what she was bred to do. Interestingly, Lass isn't the only one that grows from the experience.
The book is pretty small, but packed with wisdom. I hope you'll give it a try!
