You know I am a dog-author (and a famous one, I should add). But I do depend on my lowly human scribe to do the trivial part—the mere typing and all that easy stuff. I continue to do the hard work, which is thinking.
Well, my scribe has been ‘busy’ lately, so I have not been able to share many of my ponderables with you, but I roused him from his ‘busy’ stupor today to share this with the world. I need to work on his priorities.
Here is my big discovery: SOME humans get it. SOME humans recognize the central beauty and importance of dogs in the world, and celebrate us. I have to photographs to prove it. The first one comes from a nice human’s car window.
It’s simply a humble ‘Woof, Ya’ll,’ sticker, but it warms my canine soul to see it, and it sends a powerful message, too.
You may know that I live in Atlanta (in the Big Back Yard, to be more precise), and I do bark with a melodious and musical Southern accent. I think it’s nice that us Southern dogs are celebrated this way.
The other picture I offer as proof is from my favorite dog-centered restaurant, the ‘Two Dog Cafe’ in Gainesville, Ga. Now THESE people love dogs the right way. When you see this corner of the restaurant, you’ll want to travel there, I’m sure, no matter where you are. (Hint: their hamburgers are wonderful!)
Not ONLY do they have a wall devoted to paintings and photographs of all kinds of noble dogs, but they post a very wise dog quotation EVERY single week! Can you imagine? Humans wise enough to celebrate dogs every day AND share wonderful wisdoms about us?
It’s enough to cause me to break out in a hyper-wag and super-slobber of joy, and bark a cheerful, ‘Woof, Ya’ll!’
Now, if I can just get my scribe back to work, I’ll be a truly happy dog.
