It's been all over the news recently about Pope Francis' visit to America. In celebration, the news media published lots of photos of dogs wearing their pope costumes, like it was a regular thing. I don't understand it. Are American dogs Catholic?
It's possible I suppose. America is made up with all kinds of cultures and belief systems as it's essentially a country of immigrants. Maybe there is a separate Catholic Church for Dogs in the USA. Perhaps they have their own dog priests, dog bishops and, who knows, maybe even a dog Pope. Just because I've never seen a Dog Chapel or Canine Cathedral and never heard any of my friends mention the need to go to confession or attend mass doesn't mean it can't exist. I mean it's not as if we dogs go much in for contraception (it tends to be our human masters that make that decision for us, without consultation).
Which breed would you like to be Dog Pope?
|A Bull Pope?|
Would there ever be a Pope Figbane?
I don't think I'd suit the hat. I prefer this one.
For writing this I've been advised to say ten Hail Marys as penance. No idea what that means.
