Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Happy Birthday Hershey

Our chocolate lab puppy turned one today. We got him in August from the Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Agency, a few weeks after the death of our 12 year old black lab, Harper.

It hasn't always been easy, but perhaps we have euphoric recall that Harper was easier as a puppy and adult, and we certainly had more time to pay attention to him because we didn't have 4 kids back then!

These pictures were taken today. He is certainly taller than Harper was, and not a crazy about water (most labs are), but he is a very active dog and pretty good on the leash (we jog together in the morning). He is a timid dog - lovingly referred to by us as a chicken dog because he cowers at loud sounds such as the trash truck in the alley.
