Jaques with two of his family mates. photograph AMY TYNDALL

AND ALL THE DOGS MERELY PLAYERS by Amy Tyndall The play As You Like It by William Shakespeare features a rather melancholy character named Jaques, who wanders around the forest ruminating on ideas. He famously says: All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts We named our dog Jacques after this character. He is not melancholy, and he never ruminates. But he does chase a frisbee, and he also wags his entire back end when he sees us. We are greatly enriched since he made his entrance onto our family’s stage.
