    He is my best friend, name is Blue. I adopted him shortly after my other dog, a Shepard mix died. Blue is a white Boxer with blue eyes. He is versatile, he hunts, points, guards the family, barks at strangers, is a friend to neighbors, can run real fast… generally when he gets the zoomies, an all around good boy!

    technically the Hebrew is "living soul" in Genesis 1:20.

    And God will say the waters shall breed abundantly creeping things, the living soul, and birds shall fly over the earth, over the face of the firmament of the heavens. -- Julia E, Smith, Literal Translation, 1876.

    Here is a sample of what humans do to dogs! Whom ever did this is most certainly a creeping thing.

    Actually, I took a second look, and you and Darby and Julia are right.
