18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
(Ecclesiastes ch 3)

 Monday's Critters

For September's critters, a mini-series featuring some of the ashram dogs. 

The Indian Pariah, when in the pure breed, is an aloof and rather noble critter. Many of the city and other large urban areas now have the Heinz 57 variety of dog, though, which results in many colour and size variations.

B2 worked hard at being a mum. Not many of her pups made it to weaning...
