Blessing of the Animals

And then a hooman came to the earth who loved all the creatures. Francis was a brother to the sun and the moon, the birds and the wolves, the bunnies and the cats of all sizes.

Be praised, my Lord, through all your creatures.

Jack says, “If it is Too Scary or Too Far to come, send a picture of yourself and my mom will bless you. (Arya is sending her picture because she says it would be Too Many Creatures to keep in line.)”

The Olympics: Hole Digging and Other News

Pro Dec15- - 42

OLYMPICS NEWS UPDATE: Jack the Scottie, candidate for President of the Back Yard, earned another Gold Medal at the Puppy Olympics. This time, the event was Hole Digging. Not surprisingly, all the medal winners were Scottish Terriers. An unnamed political analyst said, “This should help Jack’s campaign quite a lot. Voters really like a well-rounded candidate. And hole digging can come in quite handy when you are penned in by a serious problem.”

In other news from the Olympics, an unnamed canine dug through to the water sports arena next door to hole digging. Water sports events for today have been postponed due to the need to clean up mud from the pools.
