Congratulations, your Holiness Mr. Pope Sir, and let me just say that I howled with delight over the choice of name as Pope Francis, in honor and memory of St. Francis of Assissi, the patron saint of animals, the environment, cuz we dogs is all over that.
And while it is true that I did engage your predecessor in animated debate over his statement that the presence of animals at the first Nativity could not be proven...a point I refuted with vigor...I know that no one named for St. Francis, who is credited with creating the first nativity scene in 1223, (complete with animals, ahem) would promote such an idea.
Cindy still has St. Francis medallions that Frisco and Shantye wore on their collars after they attended special blessings...so she's real sentimental about this stuff.
