I wish your wife a speedy recovery and hope she starts to feel the benefits quickly.
I admire your courage to carry on with your plans despite having to endure the mass shunning you did. I am always worried by the relish with which some people apply the directive to shun. This is billed as a loving act reminding the df'd or da'd one that they cannot share the loving fellowship of the congregation whilst they are in a disapproved state. What this episode shows is an arrogant bunch of people bullying another to make them feel inferior. There is no god in this act.
What you are doing with your dog is of much greater worth than anything these people did that morning. You make me proud to be an apostate.
