Story from PHILOMATH, Ore.
A cougar wandered into a cul-de-sac in the small town of Philomath, near the Oregon State University campus. The cul-de-sac sits atop a hill that backs up to a wooded area with deer trails. It jumped a low lying fence into a yard where two dogs, Chiquita a chiuaua and Rosie a border terrier lived.
The cougar briefly pinned down Rosie, who squealed.
But Mark Twain wrote, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
Hearing Rosie squeal Chiquita ran at the cougar barking ferociously.
Well, one big cat didn’t want to find out the size of the fight in two small dogs.
The dogs' owner, Loren Wingert, said “My dogs see something in the yard, they go after it.
Loren Wingert, the dogs’ owner, said her pups are fine. But she also said they were lucky
“I think we’re more traumatized than they are. They’re fine,” Wingert said.
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 1 8 For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia:
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 1 8 that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. 9 Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves,
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, ...
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed;
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 8 … we are perplexed, but not in despair;
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 9 persecuted, but not forsaken;
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 9 … struck down, but not destroyed—
(NKJV) Psalm 37 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand.
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
NKJV 2 Corinthians 1:9 … that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, 10 who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us,
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 1 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 16 Therefore we do not lose heart.
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 16 … Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
(NKJV) 2 Corinthians 4 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
