The War Zone and The Sanctuary

A blog run by a Liberal Feminist woman who adores Music and all other Art in any form. Actually, she loves just about everything from Science to British comedy. But - she is pissed off with the Current Administration and all their Right Wing ideology and is compelled to fight their reign by setting up...A Blog ( ta da! ). All malice aside, this woman is most happy when she is surrounded by intelligent thought and witty conversation.

An Escape!

There is a small Doberman puppy running around our neighborhood. He has a collar and looks well fed but he has been seen out and about for the past week and a half - and no one has reported him missing. He came up to our backyard this afternoon, which our three dogs loved ( Max almost busted the gate trying to get to him ) but he is very skitish and wary of us large folk. I've dubbed him Agamemnon.

We were very close to getting him when a car pulled up and the woman inside asked if Agamemnon was ours. We said no, and that's when he tore down the alley and out of sight. The woman has also been trying to catch him and so have her neighbors, but the luck seems to be of the mutt - for a while anyway. How much luck can a small puppy have in a world of roaring automobiles?

Every once in a while he peeps back around, probably searching for food, or canine company, but he never lingers.

Then over his broad brow Agamemnon set his helmet
fronted with four knobs and forked with twin horns
and the horsehair crest atop it tossing, bristling terror.

And that's what this animal was - bristling terror, as shown in the photo above. :)

Yeah, I took Latin in the 8th grade which was almost back when the classics were originally written! My mother spoke 5 languages and was a translator, and this is really weird for Texas, we actually knew how to read. Some days we wore shoes too. It's a great life!!! Hope you find the dog so it doesn't get hit by a car.
