Samoa in the News

"Beware of dogs," the Apostle Paul wisely warned.

A recent study out of New Zealand reveals that dogs in Samoa might be a problem for the country's tourist industry.

I was a missionary not a tourist and perhaps had more opportunities for run-ins with island dogs, some of which were positively harrowing. They certainly are sneaky little devils.

My experiences, however, pale in comparison to one of my mission buddies, who was viciously attacked by a dog that then attempted to drag him away by the lower leg. Yikes!
