We then had a long discussion during which he informed me that he had been reading a book about light and he learned that we see the color "White" when ALL the colors of the rainbow are "'flected to our eyes". "Did you know that when you see the color Red, it's because the thing you are looking at sucks in all of the other colors in the rainbow and the only color that bounces off it to your eye is Red?"
I sat, astonished at my then 5 year old child's comprehension of how light and color are related...
Three months later the boys got their white dog. Jonathon was only a baby then so Josh got full naming rights and true to his new found knowledge, our toy poodle was christened "Rainbow".
|Rainbow "Studying" with Jonathon a few weeks before he died...|
I'll admit, and I have several times. I did not want a dog. But, as is often the case, my kids and my wife won out. This however is one battle I don't regret losing. Rainbow grew on me and was a great dog...
Two years ago, after 15 years of unconditional love, Rainbow left this world.
I never thought I would say this, but he is greatly missed.
Until His work in me is complete,
