I don't know where best to discuss this poem/story/video adaptation, but I want to know what y'all think about this. I do wonder why the lady in the video is scared of the friendly dog(I know, the dog represents Someone else, but even then...). I wonder if the fact I became a Christian at a young age(8) has any factor on my reaction to it? It's a nice poem and illustration, but it still seems strange for the lady to be scared.

I have nothing to add, but note that the poem "Hound of Heaven" by Francis Thompson and the story thereof is a favorite of Ravi Zacharias.

The original poem is better. Even though it's a bit hard to understand... at least there isn't a literal dog!
