Sometimes, the motivation that we need comes not for our fellow man, but perhaps from man’s best friend.

Dogs have long been apart of world culture, and certainly American culture.  From the working ranch dogs of the high plains, to the apartment-dwelling puffballs of Manhattan, Americans are absolutely smitten with their furry friends.

Maybe it’s because dogs give us hope in the goodness that exists around us.  They are eternally grateful for even the simplest of gestures, and would do for you what you’ve done for them one-thousand times over had they the ability or the thumbs.

Instead, they reward us with unconditional kindness…and maybe some life lessons along the way.

Now, one Bulldog’s determined and unexpected agility course performance is reminding Americans that, if you put your mind to it, you can do anything.

Rudy became an overnight celebrity.

Rudy the bulldog charmed the audience at the Westminster Kennel Club agility contest in New York City over the weekend after he was spotted flying over jumps and bounding through tunnels.

The so-called “sourmug” canine had a final time of 51.63 at the agility contest, which ushers in the club’s annual dog show.

Though Rudy’s time was a bit slower than Verb the Border Collie’s winning time of 32.05 seconds, according to NJ.com, the canine quickly went viral — finding an abundance of new fans and endless support on Twitter.

Sure, Rudy may not have won the race, but he provided us with something far better than a gold medal:  A goodhearted chuckle.

With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us. They were there for us more than anyone I can imagine. They did things they didn’t have to…

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
