All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

BTW, mom has read Life of Pi and it's a great read. Also a good read, though kind of difficult because the nature of the book, Night by Elie Weisel.

I second Boomer on Life of Pi. If you can get into the rhythms of the book, Dune and One Hundred Years of Solitude are great and idiosyncratic. Watership Down is great as an audio book-- easy to keep track of what's going on.
