‘Blessing of the Pets’ Scheduled For October 7 in Lufkin

Giovanni Francesco di Bernardone was never ordained as a priest, but is revered as one of the most notable religious figures in history.

He was pronounced the patron saint of animals in the year 1228 (Saint Francis of Assisi), and because of this it is customary for churches to conduct services for animals, blessing them on the Sunday nearest to the anniversay of the death of Saint Francis on October 4, 1226.

Alligator Captured in Texas Pond

If you’re a pet owner like me, you might let your imagination get the best of you, worrying about what all the unmentionables that could possibly get your pets if you let them loose outside. I mentioned to my spouse once that I worried an alligator might eat our schnauzers, and I was laughed at heartily

Dogs and Fireworks Don’t Mix

As we mentioned, the fireworks stands have opened up shop in Texas, and you can buy the fireworks through next Wednesday at midnight.

Fun for all! Except the family dog.

Dogs think they're being tortured! Mine run to take cover in the bedroom every time they hear a pop. If we can't find our two miniature schnauzers shaking under the bed, we can usually find them with the jitters billowing under the low rack of clothes in the master closet. The muffled pop may be coming from a mile away outside, but the dogs start whining and yelping like the firecrackers are being shot off from the kitchen sink. Noise is noise, and they don't know how far away it originates. They just think they're being shot at.

What do law enforcement agencies say about dogs and fireworks?

Thought It Would Be A Routine Trip To The Gas Station, But… [VIDEO]

About three weeks have passed since I met a man while filling up the tank of  my 1974 lime green Pinto with 8-track player.  Have you seen me driving around the city?  By the way, want to thank Dornan and Clarice who were kind enough to push me out of the Timberland/Chestnut intersection last Saturday.

The man with the Arkansas license plate on his vehicle started complaining about nothing to do here.  "Been visiting relatives for four days", he said.  Must have been his wife in the front seat with his two children in the back.  10 years old I'm guessing.  He continued his calm rant by telling me that in the small Arkansas community where he resided, there were far more attractions to attend.  His disdain for the word "Lufkin" was evident, almost as if he had just swallowed a grasshopper.
