Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

Amok Time

Attention: Material in today's blog may be objectionable to some readers.

Lollia, my particolor Pomeranian female (okay, bitch) is going into heat again. It will be the last time, because she's going to be spayed as soon as she's out of season.  But meanwhile, she's the belle of the ball and all the "fellas" (three of them--Peppy, Wickham, and our big outdoor mutt, Dexter) find their funny little "kid sister" has suddenly become highly interesting. She enjoys the attention, for the most part, although after a week or so she'll begin to get sick of being followed and chased around.

I was amused this morning to see the proof of Peppy's recent double knee surgery success: for the first time, he doesn't just have to moon around in the background, but can be an active participant, if you take my meaning. Those newly repaired back legs have opened up a whole new world of opportunity for an ardent (if altered) male dog!  

Peppy is very happy!
