It’s All Important to God

In 2013 my yellow Lab, Cletus, started drinking lots of water and urinating excessively. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with him, but a quick internet search yielded a clue: these were symptoms of diabetes. When I got Cletus to the vet, his blood sugar was over...

Things Aren’t Always What We Picture…
