“In the beginning, God created…” That is how it all began. In his infinite wisdom, God created animals before humans. Why? Could it be that he needed the animals to explain creation to us? Or rather to explain the Creator to us? Could it be that God knew that our intellects would try too hard to understand something that is very simple? In The City Dog and the Country Dog, the man learns that what all of creation is yearning for freedom–freedom to enjoy his Creator and all the benefits of creation. There is just one big problem: we are held captive by our cruel masters. They keep us bound up, and they lie to us about who we are and what God thinks of us.
Boone is an Australian Blue Heeler whose owner is a cruel master. He is always trying to escape to get his needs met. After being taken by animal services for neglect and abuse, Boone is adopted by a good master. His new master must endure the bad habits and behaviors of Bonne learned under the cruet master, even being badly bit. When his training is complete, Boone is a new dog and readily submits to his master. He never leaves his master’s side. By watching Boone’s transformation, his master learns God’s plan for him and all of creation– to be set free to experience the love of their Creator, to return that love, and to receive their inheritance.
