The story behind the poem

Pascal was acquired as a companion to Newton, our first golden retriever. We gave him his name to continue the theme of famous physicists and also because he came to us at Easter and has, in some respects, lamb-like qualities.

Gently bred from generations of dog show prize-winners, he is the most civilized and calmest of dogs with the sweetest of natures. His laid-back, stress-free demeanor however belies two things: a mule-like stubbornness which makes him difficult to remove from sofas, doorways and the like, and the ruthless instincts of a successful hunter. He can catch a rabbit in the blink of an eye. He is given to mad, reckless running for the sheer joy of his speed and to independent exploring which is his abiding passion. Whereas our other dogs stay close, turn round twice on a walk with Pascal and you can just see his blonde rump disappearing over the horizon.
