Reader Responds to “Do All Sierra Madre Dogs Go to Heaven?”

Surely there is no one better qualified than the revered St. Francis of Assisi as the ideal model for animal lovers. And I too include myself among the billions who’d find life unbearable if animals were no longer here to keep us company.
I could even love rattlesnakes if they weren’t so mean. In fact, I recall that not so long ago when I found one in my garden I voiced a resolve to my wife that, like St. Francis tamed the ferocious wolf of Gubbio into a gentle creature, my snake would eventually respond in like manner to my love and kindness.
Luckily for me, my wife persuaded me to abandon that noble mission. Truly, I don’t know what I’d do without her.
