(Proverbs 26:11 KJV) As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.
Why does the Bible take such a dim view of “dogs” (3611)? They are rated with pigs in the hierarchy of creation. They obviously exist but seem to be nothing much but scavengers. When you think about it the Bible doesn’t seem to make pets a major topic. What does that say about our modern culture where we hear about people leaving their estate to a favorite animal? When we had our will redone lately the lawyer stuck in some boilerplate about animals.
So? Think of your priorities. Think of your preferences. Should pets have the place of honor that they do in our homes? I am not an animal person but consider me like the ignorant child who asked why the king was running around naked.
