Reading in the Book of 1 Samuel, we meet another of God’s chosen servants, Hannah, whose soul longed for a child. We learn she was a consecrated woman and had a good and faithful heart. For those that know the back of the book, we are aware that God honored her sincere request and allowed Hannah to become the mother of Samuel, the earliest of the great Hebrew prophets after Moses and the last of the judges. Her story breathes of her love and care for her firstborn.

This Pixie will stick by your side, but you’ll want to pick her up as fast as you can. Pixie is a 2-1/2-year-old, 9-pound female miniature dachshund/Chihuahua mix. Her owner surrendered her to the shelter because they were moving. Pixie is absolutely adorable! She has a doxie’s long body and muzzle but a Chihuahua’s taller legs. By far, her most fetching feature is her oversized ears.
