Bulldogs and Poodles


The story’s told of a bulldog and poodle who were arguing one day. The bulldog was making fun of the poodle, calling him a weak little runt who couldn’t do anything. The bulldog said, “I challenge you to a contest. Let’s see who can open the back door of their house the fastest and get inside.” The bulldog was thinking he would turn the doorknob with his powerful jaws, while the poodle was too small to even reach the knob of his back door. But to the bulldogs surprise the poodle said, “I can get inside my house faster than you can. I accept the challenge.”

So, with the poodle watching, the bulldog ran to the back door of his house and jumped up to the door knob. He got his teeth and paws around it and tried to turn it, but he couldn’t get enough grip on the knob to do it, so he finally quit in exhaustion. Now it was the poodles turn.

The poodle ran to his back door and did what he had been doing every day for the last several years. He went up to the door and scratched on it a couple of times, then sat down and waited patiently. Within a few seconds, his master not only opened the door, but picked him up in his arms, patted him on the head affectionately and carried him inside.

The difference between the two approaches? Relationship! It’s time to stop grunting, growling, and trying to force the issue. Trust in your relationship with the master. He will not refuse anyone who seeks His assistance!
