Kepler Mentors Henry

(3 Minute Read)

authors Kepler & Henry

Woof! Woof!
This is Kepler, Master’s Jack Russell terrier, writing another article for Master’s Bible-Science Guy Blog.

My buddy Henry, a Silky Terrier, came to live with us a couple years ago. We adopted him when his former owner could no longer keep him, and we were told that he was in danger of being “put down.”

I asked Missus what being “put down” meant, because I noticed she cried a little about it. She does this sometimes. She said “Never mind.” So I googled it to find out what “put down” means. But there were so many meanings, it was not much help.

However, one of the meanings for “put down” was “record something in writing.” I thought that might fit. So I looked in the records file we got on Henry when we adopted him. Sure enough, twice he had been assessed a $5 “naughty dog” fee for being obstreperous at grooming and nail clipping appointments. This was “put down” on his permanent record. I was quite pleased with myself for figuring out what being “put down” means.

Since this little brown dog was starting a new life with us, we gave him a new name. Master named him Dr. Henry Morris to honor the memory of the man who is the father of the modern Creation Science movement. But we just call him Henry or The Doctor for short.

Henry is a good companion, and we do almost everything together. We play with one another all day long, chasing each other around the house and wrestling. Together we keep squirrels and chipmunks, raccoons and possums on the run in Master’s backyard and at his campsites.

For quite a while Henry has been bugging me to let him have a turn writing an article for Master’s Bible-Science Guy Blog. He admires me and wants to do as I do and help with Master’s blog.

“What in the world would you write about?” I asked.

“Grass smells,” Henry replied. “I am an expert on smells in the grass and what they mean. And smells on fence posts and trees. I can sniff a tree and tell the breed, age, and sex of all the dogs that have used that tree in the last month.”

“That’s no big deal,” I replied. “Anybody can sniff around and figure that out.”

“Master can’t,” said Henry. “He has no idea whether a Collie or Chihuahua used that tree. I want to explain all that. Then he will be able to use his magnificent big nose to sniff grass and trees like we do. Wouldn’t it be great for Master and Missus to get down on all fours with us and sniff trees, fence posts, and boulders on our walks?”

I was skeptical about Henry writing a blog post, but he was incredibly persistent. Every day I would hear over and over, “Please, can I, Kepler? Please, Kepler, let me try. Please, please, please!!!”

Finally, like the unrighteous judge in Luke 18:1-8, I gave in to Henry’s importuning. I showed him how to use the mouse (which he tried to bite) and how to use his toenails to type words on the keyboard. He was pretty clumsy at it, but we all have to start somewhere.

So for the first time ever, here is my buddy Henry writing a guest article for Master’s Bible-Science Guy Blog.

Okay . . . I guess I should have known that would not go well. Henry is a nice pup, but obviously he’s not cut out to be an author like I am. This is Kepler, panting hard and licking a few nips and scratches I got while explaining to Henry that he needed to step away from the keyboard NOW.

It looks like we’re not going to learn anything from Henry about grass smells or sniffing. But while we’re on the topic of grass, you’ve just got to click here for Master’s newspaper article Grass in which Master has a hilarious conversation with a lawn-service salesman. Grass is very important to me for reasons of my own, and it amazes me when Master explains the Great Creator‘s design of grass. Most dogs don’t pay any attention to the importance and complexity of grass.

So that’s how things look from the Dog House!

Till next time, this is Kepler signing off for myself and Henry. Woof! Woof!

Questions to Ponder

1. Why did the Great Creator give Kepler and Henry such sensitive noses?
2. Why would anyone name a dog Dr. Henry Morris or Professor Johann Kepler?
3. How can your sense of smell be used to honor the Great Creator?

But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you;
And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you.
Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you;
And let the fish of the sea declare to you.
Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
In whose hand is the life of every living thing,
And the breath of all mankind?
(Job 12:7-10)

  1. Kepler does it again, with a brilliant tap dance between POVs that had me laughing out loud.

  2. I enjoyed the attempted combined blog from the two guys. I think part of the reason the creator gave them such good sense of smell was he knew they would be companions to humans and would need it to help protect and alert. The new names were picked with much thought and made the two dogs part of the family and matched them to great scientists. I believe our sense of smell is used to honor the creator by helping us appreciate the wonders of nature he provided for us, the smells of our loved ones as we hold them close, and the wonderful aromas of the foods that nourish us daily. Thank you for the thoughts for the day.
