Senator Kennedy: a doggie post, with well wishes

We at Acts of Hope have sent a little note to the Senator assuring him of our good wishes and prayers and thanking him for his ongoing leadership, especially for justice for the poor. We also just discovered his DOGS. Are they cute or are they cute? (Photo taken upon departure from hospital today.)
We are still in alleged no-blogging mode, and have no deep thoughts to share or capacity to chat, but we send this post out with special greetings to MadPriest and Mrs MadPriest and their canine companions, to Wormwood's Doxy and the dogalicious Jasper, and to naughty, distinguished, grandpup-loving Clumber, whom we haven't had time to read this week.

We may be a Committed Cat Household, but we are all for multi-species inclusiveness. For this they call us heretics? We are Jesus-loving, Trinitarian, sacramental, multi-species critters here. What's the problem?

And hang in there, Senator. You've got a loving family, good friends and allies, fine doctors, and fabulous dogs. And Godde embraces you as you face the challenge of malignant illness. We love you.

May 23 postscript - Here's a moving article from today's Boston Globe on how the Senator, efficiently and compassionately, has helped scores of ordinary people. And again I say: Thank you, Ted; we love you.

I do believe someone had told me the Kennedys had Portuguese Water Dogs. Jasper was very excited to see his fellow PWDS in such an important family!

Prayers for Senator Kennedy and his family...including the dogs.

Sounds good to me!

Hugs to you and to Miss Maya Pavlova too...

What a lovely post and those dogs are too darn cute!

Good on you and good on Ted and his family, human and canine!

Kennedy has done great work in the Senate. Prayers for him and his family. They face rough times ahead. May God give them strength and courage, and, above all, the peace that passes understanding to keep their minds and hearts.

Beautiful dogs there.
