Maddy and Roxy

Pope John Paul II declared in a public audience
in 1990 that "also the animals possess a soul and
men must love and feel solidarity with our smaller brethren".
He said, too, that they are the "fruit of the creative
action of the Holy Spirit and merit respect," and are
as near to God as men are."

Amen to that!

What an absolutely beautiful pup, inside and out. I can deeply empathize with you Maddy, and family. I lost my wonderful tri-color Walker Hound pal this past July. He had a great life though, lived with me since he was about 4 months old and died in his own bed at home at 15.5 years old. He was adopted, as a "pound hound" and while he got to be geriatric, he was still an energetic clown until about a week before he went home.
