Closer to home, a looming schism in the Brooks-Russell household has been avoided by a mediated settlement that has been embraced by both sides of the dispute.
The humans who have been spending so much time online obsessed with things Anglican that they were neglecting to pay attention to things Canine have committed to "step away" on a regular and agreed upon basis and return to faciliating trips to the dog park and walks around the block.
Meanwhile, the canines have agreed to quit chewing up everything in sight and chasing the cats in return for their own blog ... harvey and luna ... which will give them an outlet to express their thoughts, feelings and concerns to the world at large.
"It was a hard-won compromise" said one family member. "But in the end it was worth the work to get back to being one big happy famiy again."
