Trained to be Perfect..!

A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back again. So he goes over to the dog and notices it has a note in its mouth. He takes the note and it reads “Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please. The dog has money in its mouth, as well.” The butcher looks inside and, lo and behold, there is a ten dollar note there. So he takes the money and puts the sausages and lamb in a bag, placing it in the dog’s mouth.

The butcher is so impressed, and since it’s about closing time, he decides to shut the shop and follow the dog. The dog comes to a bus stop, and starts looking at the timetable. The butcher is in awe as the dog stops a bus by pulling its left leg up and gets in it. The butcher follows the dog into the bus. The dog shows a ticket which is tied to its belt to the bus conductor.

The butcher is nearly fainting at this sight, so are the other passengers in the bus. The dog then sits near the driver’s seat looking outside waiting for the bus stop to come. As soon as the stop is in sight, the dog stands and wags its tail to inform the conductor. Then, without waiting for the bus to stop completely, it jumps out of the bus and runs to a house very close to the stop.

It opens the big iron gate and rushes inside towards the door. As it approaches the wooden door, the dog suddenly changes its mind and heads towards the garden. It goes to the window, and beats its head against it several times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door.

The butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts scolding the dog, shouting and grumbling at him. The butcher surprised with this, runs up, and stops the guy. “What in heaven’s name are you doing? The dog is a genius. He could be on TV, for the life of me!” To which the guy responds: “You call this clever? This is the second time this week he’s forgotten his key!”

Even as I laughed at the hilarious end and the comment that the owner made, something struck me: The butcher who was following the dog saw an owner who didn’t appreciate his dog in spite of it being so clever, but think again, wasn’t it the same man who painstakingly trained his dog to be so bright, who must have spent hours and days and months to bring him to that stage? Didn’t such owner have right to expect hundred per cent perfection?

Aren’t we a lot like the butcher when we react and ask God why in spite of being good and honest and faithful we still face disciplining from Him? Well I’m sure its time we realize that God is training us to be perfect and that even when the world looks at us and wonders why good people like us are going through tough times, we need to know we are one of the few chosen who He is training through those tough times to be perfect..!

  1. My son’s dog opens the latch. But opening a lock with a key is beyond my imagination. I admire the dog trainers who skillfully tame a playful animal that needs disciplining being a creature that doesn’t know our language and religion.

  2. What a wonderful trainer we have the saviour who forgives and forgives and forgives till we are perfected. Even if we fail he is still there to embrace us with a smile. Nevertheless we need to put in our efforts to perfect and marvel in his sight. He is unlike us.

  3. Nobody is perfect except our Creator And the fact that He disciplines us to become like Him only shows how much He loves us

  4. Well Bob, except God ( the Guru – Creator) everyone is bound to make mstakes, as the Gurbani ordains. The Creator is ever forgiving and we owe it to Him to submit to His Will ( Hukam) always without demur..
