Is This Dog Catholic?

Jack Kemp

From an section on training a former soldier's therapy dog in the book "Until Tuesday:"

One Sunday, Tuesday's foster mother took him to church. Not to sit in the car, but to sit under the pew and listen, without complaint, to an entire sermon. At communion, he followed his foster mother to the kneeler. Instead of sitting behind her as she expected, Tuesday sat beside her, with is pays on the altar rail. Everyone else had their hands there, so why not? When the priest came with the communion wafers, Tuesday quietly watched him pass, but his eyes said, Hey, why didn't I get a treat? The priest came back, placed his hands on Tuesday's head and blessed his future work.Tuesday waited quietly for a few seconds, then turned and walked back to his seat, the whole congregation chuckling behind him.
