A Very Proper Church dog
I found this on a site about Welsh hymn writer Ann Griffiths:
Religious upbringing: Ann received a religious upbringing. Her father was a conscientious member of the Anglican Church, the established church in Wales at that time, and he regularly attended the services at Llanfihangel parish church. An indication of the regularity of Ann's father's attendance at church over an extended period is to be found in the story of an old sheepdog at Dolwar Fach. The dog would follow his master to church every Sunday morning and lie quietly under his pew until the service ended; indeed, it is said that attending church had become such a habit for the dog that he would go regularly every Sunday, even when no members of the Dolwar family were present!
Now THAT is a dog who knows his TRUE Master! Praise ye the Lord, ye creatures of His - in beauty and bark, Praise the name of the Lord and magnify it forever!
Thanks for that piece of humour and dedication, Gwen! DJ
