C. S. Lewis on his dog Tim

A Sleeping Dog with Terracotta Pot - Gerrit Dou

Sleeping Dog  Gerrit Dou, 1650

Following a discussion of C. S. Lewis, a friend sent a passage from Surprised by Joy in which Lewis describes his dog Tim.

Tim, though I loved him, was the most undisciplined, unaccomplished and dissipated-looking creature that ever went on four legs. He never exactly obeyed you; he sometimes agreed with you.

Surprised by Joy, p. 163.
