OK, some friends of my gggggrandfather wrote in their diaries that the dog built a house.

Can I see the experts reports and did the dog have any offspring?

I don’t have the expert reports, but my cousin in Sweden does. The dog died young and had no offspring.

It is amazing what is legitimized under the name of religion.

Any candidates accepting atheist endorsements?
