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!
