Skosh the Dog

While I was in Korea we had a company stray dog that made our Quonset hut home. She was a loving dog that was pretty small, and that is why we called her Skosh.

We had to protect her as much as we could, because the Korean people thought dogs were a delicacy. She wouldn’t last long in the village outside the Camp Red Cloud grounds.

Much to our surprise she got pregnant. We didn’t know there were any other dogs in the area. I guess when a dog is in heat, any dog will find them.

She had four little puppies. As soon as they were born, right in our hut, she took them and hid them. We feared for the lives of those puppies, and we were right. Within a week after Skosh moved them, she came back to our hut and never left. She obviously had lost her babies.

That was a sad time for the soldiers in my hut. We knew what had happened, but there was nothing we could do about it. Skosh wanted to raise her babies her way.

I find that this happens today in our lives. We do whatever we can to guide our children, and show them what we think is best for their lives, but they still go into unknown territories and see what they can find there.

It is hard to see some of the things that our children do, because we have done them and had the same results. We try to tell them about the trials they may face, but they want to do it themselves. The hard facts are that we need to let them seek their own paths, and hope they will walk the right way.

Proverbs 22:6 Says: Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

That can be our guide when we have children. We need to show them the right path, not just tell them about the right path. We should live by example, and when our children see what we do, they will want to do it too.

It is much like the old saying, “Monkey see, monkey do.”

If you don’t do drugs or alcohol and do take your children to church every Sunday you will have a better chance of having them grow up being good parents, and good citizens.

If you do have a problem with drugs and alcohol, you children have a much higher risk of following in your footsteps because they see it every day in their homes.
