My pups pondering the mysteries of squirrels. Or something.

We just had a bunch of stink trees cut down in our back yard, plus some overgrown bushes. The squirrels are all WTF?! and our indoor cats are enjoying their confusion.

Stink trees? No wonder you cut them down!

There’s something about boxers that seems just a shade more human than most dogs. Maybe it’s the shape of the muzzle or the coloration that suggests eyebrows.

They just always seem to be about to say something.

I love boxers, and these two are especially beautiful.

I am wondering if anyone can help me with a tiny problem. A dear acquaintance of mine, who is kind and smart and has two small dogs I adore, has given me a copy of “The Purpose-Driven Life” by Rick Warren. This is one of the last books I’d have picked up on my own. I started it out of respect for my friend, but have so far not been able to get through the opening cavalcade of sales pitches for other Purpose-Driven merchandise I can buy to enhance my experience.

I know I’m not required to read it. But she’s my friend. Has anyone read it? Is there any attitude I can bring to it that will allow me to extract something useful from it?

I am greatly pleased by the increasing frequency of cute boxer pix posts.

@ Larkspur: I faced a similar dilemma recently. I temporarily took over my mother’s caretaker duties for her ancient mother and foolishly neglected to bring a book with me. All Gran had on hand was a book entitled “Heaven Is Real,” which recounts the supposedly true story of a preacher’s child who had a near-death experience, during which he traveled to heaven and met Jesus, his dead grandpa, etc. I easily finished it in one night. The attitude I brought to it was similar to that Jane Goodall brings to her study of wild chimpanzees. Though I’m sure the chimps are infinitely more entertaining…
