Nature and Animals

“Now if I believe in God's Son and remember that He became man, all creatures will appear a hundred times more beautiful to me than before. Then I will properly appreciate the sun, the moon, the stars, trees, apples, as I reflect that he is Lord over all things. …God writes the Gospel, not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.” — Martin Luther (1483-1546)

Belgians are heroes every day alongside police officers and servicemen. :-) Belgian Malinois Military Dog

Hercules is an English Mastiff and who has a 38 inch neck and weighs 282 pounds. (The one my family had when I was a kid topped out at 150, and he was pretty big.)

They call mastiffs "Gentle Giants" because it is so common for them to have patient, sweet personalities. This one is a Brindle Mastiff ("brindle" refers to his spotty coloring). Isn't he beautiful? :-)
