STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Father Albert Cutie described it to the Florida Sun-Sentinel. Up to a dozen dogs bring their owners, as they've done for years. They do not bark much, unless they encounter each other after communion. Now, dogs in a church may seem odd. But it is fitting because, as everybody knows, God spelled backward is dog.
