Today as the girls and I are playing in the playroom, Paloma leans over and says "Mr. Kody stinks."
I had to agree since our big, not so bright Dalmatian often rolls around in mud and dirt, getting into mischief on many occasions.
I replied "He is kind of stinky but he is still a nice puppy"
Mattea's quick response: "God still loves him even if he stinks."
Your right honey - if God can still loves us after the sin that we commit day in and day out, I'm sure that he can still love your puppy despite a bit of body odor.
