Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 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.

Arrived safely!

Hershey arrived safely in Arizona. Although we were fearful that he would arrive a drooly mess (or worse - he has tried to scratch himself out of crate once - made his paw bleed), he was dry and safe. My dad said the sedative seemed to still have some effect, although at this dosage it should not have lasted 8 hours.

Dad and Deb picked him up and he was great in the car (always was) and he met Shadow (Deb's dog) at a neutral site - a nearby park. Once the two got to know each other, then Deb took them both to the house and Hershey made himself right at home, even helping Shadow finish her dinner after he finished his. He hasn't figured out the doggie door as of earlier this evening, but I am sure Shadow will show him how.

Things are quiet right now at home. Everyone is in bed, asleep (by 9:30 tonight - very early!) except yours truly. Now is when I would clip Hershey on the leash and go for a walk around the block. Perhaps I will just go for one myself without him and pray for the neighbors as I do with him.
