   two books put out by the monks of New Skete concerning how to properly raise puppies? Looked very cute and all.

If we live as people of God, there will be room for all nations in the Balkans and in the world. If we liken ourselves to Cain who killed his brother Abel, then the entire earth will be too small even for two people. The Lord Jesus Christ teaches us to be

From what I hear, they are highly respected in that field, and are considered authorities in the raising of puppies.  They make a fine cheesecake too. ;D

I have their book on training dogs. It's pretty good. Can't recall the title at the moment . . .  :-";"xx

Several years back I saw a documentary either on PBS or the Discovery Channel, which was about the monks of New Skete and their work with dogs, which I found very interesting.  I'm not sure if it's available in video form somewhere, but if you contacted them they should be able to give you more information on it.  It's well worth watching.

My wife came across their books when browsing in a Border's one day.  
We tried to get on their waiting list for a dog (how nice would it be to have a trained, Orthodox puppy! :) ).  But when we checked it out (summer of '03 or so), they weren't accepting any more names to their waiting list, which is about 2 years anyway.

Someone from my parish converted to Orthodoxy after worshipping at New Skete!

How much do they want for one of their trained puppies anyway?

I'm just curious to know if they made the cheesecakes that David recommends and bred and trained the puppies back when they were Byzantine Catholics.

I know it's a stupid question, but I am curious none the less.

Thinking of delicious, delicious cheesecake,
