For someone with the blog tagline Deconstructing Political and “Austerity” Spin, this may be a peculiar ‘first’ diary.
Regardless, I decided to post this dairy because my respite from the ‘rough and tumble of politics,’ is my love for pets and music.

I hope this lovely video slideshow tribute to the English Springer Spaniel, set to the Phil Collins song “You’ll Be In My Heart,” brings a smile to your face.
It is a tribute to all pets–past and present. It would be most gratifying to me if readers take this opportunity to honor their pets by posting comments, videos, pictures–whatever.
So, on behalf of Mr. HNPS and myself, I pay tribute to all of our pets, over our entire lifetimes. They were/are:
Mickey, Lucky, Panda, Yogi, Misty, Chena, Mollie, Murphee, Bailey (Dogs) and Pepe, Bubba, JC, and Petey (Birds).
With Special Mention of:
“Chena,” Our Alaskan Sourdough, and our petite (Field) English Springer Spaniel [April 1989-September 2006].
“Our Dog of a Lifetime.”
Your exuberance, intelligence, energy, humor, incredible beauty, playfulness, vibrant personality, “smilng” face, and deep and abiding love and devotion to us live so vividly in our memories, that you are still here with us, Girl. And,
“Murphee,” aka Big Baby, Our Terrier-Mix Shelter Dog [May 1998-January 2012].
It was you, Girl, who disproved the notion that one could have ‘only one’ Dog of a Lifetime.
Your sweetness, intelligence, low-key, meek and gentle ways, wonderful personality, unique and adorable little mannerisms, your beautiful face, and your intense love and devotion to us, stay with us everyday. You, too, never left us.
“Thank you all, for the years of joy and unconditional love that you gave us. You’ll be in our hearts . . . Always.”
