A little history on Willy-Earl…
Willy-Earl was left abandoned in the woods of Pelhatchie, Mississippi. He wandered in the woods of Pelahatchie, Mississippi for months, until one day he wandered into a neighborhood and he came across woman who was putting her trash out. This woman was a vet. The vet said Willy-Earl was skin and bones, covered in blood, sores, and had minor health problems. She said when Willy-Earl walked up to her, she tried to shew him off but that big happy smile of Willy-Earl’s got to her and she brought him into her clinic. Isn’t that a testimony? After all that Willy-Earl went through, he kept smiling, stayed happy, looked for opportunity to find help and the Lord provided him a vet!
Fast forwarding a few weeks later, Ryan, Marley and I got to Mississipi. We decided to drive through our favorite coffee shop. Marley was in my lap. The Barista asked, “are ya’ll looking for another boxer?” and we exclaimed “yes!” The Barista said, “Well, I’ve been working part-time at this clinic and there’s this boxer, sweetest dog the Lord ever made, I named him Willy-Earl. I’ve been praying for weeks for the Lord to provide a family for him and ya’ll look like the answers to my prayers for Willy-Earl.”
So we went to the vet to meet him. Ryan and I were concerned how Marley and Willy-Earl would get along. So we agreed to let them play in the vet’s backyard for a while. When we got to the vet, Marley took one look at Willy-Earl who was trembling in the corner, and Marley ran up to Willy-Earl, wrapped his paws around Willy-Earl and started hugging and kissing him like crazy!
After this story, I’m convinced Marley has the gift of healing! Ryan and I fell in love with our boy, Willy-Earl, and we were sold! I told the vet about Texas Farm, the holistic brand, the dog parks in Orlando and our favorite dog beach. All she could say is, “Wow, the Lord has provided for Willy-Earl above and beyond what I could have imagined! Willy-Earl has hit the jackpot!”
Over the weekend Willy-Earl and Marley snuggled, kissed, played, ate out of the same bowl – the bromance had started. On our drive back to Orlando, Marley licked Willy-Earl’s face like crazy…12hrs later, Marley had licked all the scabs on Willy-Earl’s face away and his face healed up the next day.
A year later, Willy-Earl has graduated from puppy school with honors and has grown into a big happy healthy boy–our pride and joy! I keep thinking about that verse in Matthew, “29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.[b ] 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
I think about all the Lord has done for Willy-Earl in just a year. He’s come such a long way from the woods in Pelahatchee, Mississippi. It’s such a testimony to me. Thanks for your help in healing Willy-Earl, we really appreciate all you do for him and Marley.
