Epiphany . . .
explaining their newborn
to the dog

On January 6 many Christians observe the Feast of the Epiphany, celebrating the encounter of the three Kings, or magi, with the baby Jesus, as recorded in Matthew 2.

A good one, Bill. Dogs seem to understand a new member of the family pretty readily.

Thanks, Doug and Adelaide.

Yes, they are thoroughly domesticated.

I mean dogs, not babies.

And maybe the dog smiles and says: I like babies but I couldn't eat a whole one.

Sincerely hope it's not a Rottweiler. There was a fairly recent case in the paper where one of these devil dogs belonging to the police murdered a cop's 90 year old grandmother while she was alone in the house with the beast.
