Profecto Fido

A few weeks ago, The Telegraph published a story about a faithful dog who goes daily to the parish where his recently deceased mistress attended mass: “Dog turns up to dead owner’s church every day.” I discovered the story on Fr. Z.‘s blog, where his readers mentioned several similar cases and other interesting bits. I did not know about “dog whippers” before. That Wikipedia article was a gateway to an encyclopedic orgy that ended hours later after I had learnt about Greyfriar’s Bobby, therianthropy, the faoladh, and dozens of other fascinating elements in our marvelous world. I must be careful of indulging in such intoxicants. Anyway, cheers to man’s best friend!

CNN’s Critters

Contrary to what you might expect from the title, this post does not concern Candy Crowley, Soledad O’Brien, or other specimens from Turner’s menagerie. Rather, I wish to celebrate my brother Adam’s birthday by offering CNN’s delightful “distractions.”
