Although I have never been one to toot my own horn, when I got top bill-ing in last week’s Concord Bridge, I just had to quack. My sister, Puddle, who had stayed home, saw the paper, and boy, were her feathers ruffled! 

On behalf of all my blessed, furry, fluffy, and feathered friends at TriCon Church, thank you for paw-sing at our Blessing of the Animals and for your purr-fect coverage of the event. 

Toot Bruning, Duck
