I wish I could be…

…like this dog every day. This guy runs headlong through some abrasive obstacles to get to to something that, once he reaches  it and is enveloped in it makes any craggy things he may have scuffed up against, rocks, thorns, briars, shrubs, cactus,…..it makes it worth it. 



Since I read the following well known doggy metaphor some years back I’ve been keenly tuned in to The Ministry of Dogs


A sick man
turned to his doctor as he was preparing to

Leave the
examination room and said,

I am afraid to die.

me what lies on the other side.’

quietly, the doctor said, ‘I don’t know..’

don’t know? You’re, a Christian man,

and don’t
know what’s on the other side?’

The doctor
was holding the handle of the door;

On the
other side came a sound of scratching and whining,

And as
he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room

leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

to the patient, the doctor said,

you notice my dog?

never been in this room before.

didn’t know what was inside.

He knew
nothing except that his master was here,

when the door opened, he sprang in without fear.

I know
little of what is on the other side of death,

But I
do know one thing…

I know my
Master is there and that is enough.’

  1. I heard a rumor that Empathologism and Elspeth were born siamese twins and separated in their early tween years. Although none of my business, I am curious???

  2. Elspeth….putting aside the white man black woman circus sideshow aspect, (“Come in and see the amazing Siamese brother and sister…..and I mean SISTER!”) I can’t figure any other angle either. Do we have the same internet “voice”?….Not really. I’d be honored to be a family member of yours or you mine or however one would say that, but ideological lockstep…no…..tone and tenor, nope, nothing I can think of at all.

    Anyway, if this is so, I. The elder, and it took like 10 years to deliver you thereafter….now that was tough on momma.

  3. I was originally commenting to note that I like the dog video (not to mention the message) and that Walter’s coat is very much like our dog’s.

    But you as a big brother? It never would have occurred to me though I’m sure it would have been fun.

  4. Incorrect I was indeed
    This rumor consider adhesiolysistically buried

    A circus sideshow potentially comedic
    Only if ascribed good-willed and strategic

    My abandonment of rumors hence
    Consternation result has no defense

    Back to my list of pelviscopies
    The views of which engender me to act dopeyz
