Help us to heal 
Dogs can not only sense illness, their tongues are also said to have healing properties. In the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus, a dog is said to be licking the poor man's wounds. This may be seen as Lazarus having reached his lowest point, but it is also a depiction of the dog trying to revive Lazarus, show him love, and heal him.
