My Dog Doesn’t Like Being A Dog Anymore!


Rusty And The Love Of His Life… Marcia Ballestero


My dog doesn’t like being a dog anymore. Some might even say that he is going through an identity crisis. It’s so obvious that even a non-professional picks up on the situation. The canine in our house is currently choosing not to act like a dog anymore.

Little 6 lb. Rusty thinks he is human. He seems to enjoy passing himself off as a person, rather than a puppy.

For a short time, he seemingly enjoyed just being a puppy. He had his own puppy food, puppy toys, puppy snacks, puppy playpen, puppy bed, puppy stroller, puppy travel crate, and puppy play area. He was a happy and contented little pooch.

But, Rusty’s whole world has now changed. It changed when he tasted a bit of people food. Once he found out what people ate, his food didn’t taste as good to him as it used to. Whenever he now sees us seated at the table, he stands on his short hind legs and taps us on our legs to get our attention. He never gives up or stops trying until he is rewarded.

It didn’t stop with the food issue. He feels that if his mistress is sitting on a comfortable couch, that is where he should be, too. Oh, and now the bed. Yes! He doesn’t like his bed now. He wants to be on the same bed as his master.

Before you criticize Rusty, please be aware that he is just like you. You were happy being a sinner until you tasted of heavenly things. No wonder David wrote: Psalms 34:8 “O taste and see that the LORD is good…”

Once you have tasted of the mercies and goodness of the Lord and have sat together with him in heavenly places, you come into His presence, and He can tell by the look in your eyes that you are not identifying as the dog you used to be, but you want to be like Him; You want to eat Angel food, rest in His arms, and be comforted by His care.

Once you have been baptized in Jesus’ Name and been filled with the Holy Ghost, your nature changes. You won’t want to be a dog anymore!

  4. Sister Ballestero is so beautiful! She is such a godly lady.That little puppy is so cute! No wonder he gets pampered.I love this comparison. I’m thankful I get to eat from the Masters table. The worlds table destroys. I’m so thankful that I’ve been filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized in Jesus Name for 5 and a half years. Praise the Lord!!!
