Strange life, a dog’s

A man with a terrier in his lap

“‘Strange life a dog’s,’ said Jolyon suddenly: ‘The only four-footer with rudiments of altruism and a sense of God!'”

The Forsyte Saga, by John Galsworthy

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I recently finished this giant, magnificent novel, and I loved the portrayal and constant presence of the family dog, Balthasar, who eventually charmed Jolyon Senior and was his constant companion in later years. The Forsyte Saga would be a great winter read, as we ready ourselves to be trapped up indoors; it’s a book to get lost in.

Hope you have pleasant weekends ahead!
