Watch, Play, Learn!

Perdita Whacknoodle, dog poet and dog writerOnce again, my human scribe was in his favorite restaurant–the one with the brilliant name.  Two Dog Cafe. And he saw a bit of human philosophy that he shared with me.

I must admit I had a chuckle when I saw this picture, because so MANY humans rush around frantically visiting their doctors and gulping handfuls of medicines. They try harder and harder to get healthy, but I think they are looking in the wrong places.

Maybe, as this brilliant quotation says, what they need to do is spend time with a dog. WE Blood Pressure WEBhave it all figured out, you know, and we are willing to share our happiness and love with any human.

Sadly, too few humans seem to understand this, and even many humans who live with dogs miss the point. All you have to do is watch us, play with us, learn from us.

And be more like us, of course. As this brilliant sign says, it will help your blood pressure. Maybe you won’t need those sleeping pills. Maybe you won’t be depressed any more.

And for this all-natural treatment, you don’t need an appointment or pre-clearance from some stupid insurance company.

So, sit down with you dog today. Scratch behind his ears. Go out to the park and run. Lie on the ground and wrestle. Throw some sticks. Share a hamburger.

Wag more. Bark less. You’ll feel better!

(I may change my name to “Dr. Whacknoodle.” What do you think?)

    Excellent message, Perdita. Too bad we don’t have a live dog to help Dad with his blood pressure. Love Mom
