Well, she just purchased an $1,800 one pound, month old puppy. She has also invested another $1,200 in a bed, playpen, clothing, accessories and grooming items which include Little Girl Puppy Perfume. ...[text shortened]... a child. Your neighbors would most likely approve. [Bobby don't though he understands. lol]
Another neighbor had a dog die recently. The neighbor is dealing with cancer and while quite mentally acute and sociable, has a somewhat limited life. He readily admits that Jake was the center of his life. Jake showed up on Bruce's doorstep 12 years ago. Bruce was the only dog person in the neighborhood who didn't have a dog due to another loss, and along came Jake, abandoned.
I'd call it a formal social occasion although not black tie. It was a benefit. There was much in the way of worshipful gestures. they recorded the event for a CD and were showing off their new gowns too.
Maybe you recognize some of these titles from the program: A mighty long way, Ain't God good, Full time god, God is, King Jesus. Rollaway the rock, Wade in the water, Yes there is hope.
