Living Up To Her Name

When our dog was named, we had no clue how well chosen it turned out to be and we should have seen the writing on the wall. We were constantly shocked each time we discovered she had found another way to vacate the premises and was roaming around outside the designated area; our yard.

At first we thought she only climbed the fence during a thunderstorm, but it so turned out she also did it whenever she pleased. We didn't want to do resort to the solution we found, but it was time for her to be constantly shocked when she discovered there was no more way to leave the yard.

We got an electronic dog fence and so far, it has done the trick; every time she comes too close to the fence the collar gives her a brief, quick but harmless shock. In no time, she learned to stay at a safe distance outside the 'zapping' range and finally accepted she won't be living up to her name any longer.

Since she ignored the fact that whenever she strayed, it resulted in her being tied up for the rest of the day, correction was needed. No, our pet Mia will no longer be Missing In Action, unless she finds ways to shut off the power or shed herself of the collar. I don't put that past her either, since she has proven to be rather resourceful.

I don't know what we would do then, but it certainly will not be very pleasant for her and I hope it will not get to that point. Maybe she finally wised up and heeds the warnings and instructions; she, including everyone else, will be much better off.

God constantly gives us warnings, corrections and instructions. We would do wisely to heed, learn from, and follow them, because they are given only for our benefit, wellbeing and happiness!

Proverbs 10:17
He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, But he who refuses correction goes astray.
