One of the most shocking reports I ever read appeared in the Indian Express several years ago. On the front page was a photo of a little boy, half naked, lying on the sidewalk of a busy street. Next to the boy was a dog. Upon closer inspection, I saw that it was a female dog, and the little boy was actually sucking her milk. The caption read, "This Dog Is His Mother." The three-column article went on to describe the heartbreaking agony that homeless children face as they try to survive on their own. ~an excerpt from NO LONGER A SLUMDOG by K. P. Yohannan

How much we can learn from dogs! That dear dog was the Good Samaritan to that precious little boy, made in God's image! So many humans heartlessly passed the dear little boy without a care, while the dog lovingly mothered him!
