The Philosopher Dog, Part 1

I found over 60,000,000 items when I typed "Dogs Who Blog" into a search engine. By now even the most skeptical cat will have to admit that dogs have established they can blog with the best.

It is time for dogs to move on to the next level. We need dogs commenting on world events, we need dogs writing editorial columns in daily papers. We need dogs running for public office, dogs reforming Washington. Dogs to help humans cope with these troubled times. When the going gets tough, humans turn to dogs for leadership. Dogs have long been the answer to the question "Who Loves you Baby"?

We need dog philosophers. Yes, it is fun talking about day to day activities, but now it is time to move on to the next level. Dogs need to address the pressing questions of our time. Questions such as: If a dog barks at the back fence and no one hears, is he still a "bad dog"? "If a tail wags in the darkness and no one sees, is he still a happy dog?"

The new motto should be "Dogs do it on four paws!"

Humans have so much to learn from dogs. Economists say the savings rate is too low, dogs have been burying bones in the back yard for thousands of years, showing humans how to save. But the lesson is lost on them without more direct intervention. Humans will not lean over to pick up a penny anymore, but dogs will fetch anything, proving we have a greater dedication to thrift than do humans.

To all of my dog blogging friends, it's time to stage an intervention. Lets move on from just blogging to becoming leaders in moving man kind and dog kind forward.

  1. Mogley,
    Once again you are proving to be a fine carpentar because you have hit the nail right on the head. We have to fill-of-it-sters in The Bumpass Hounds. We have the great feline fillofitster Boru and the wise, all knowledgable canine and great thinker, Homer J. Bumpass. We know from comments left on some of Boru's postings that you are NOT an admirer of his work, although we do find him to quite witty; it may be a Virginia thing. Anyway, we have elected Homer J. to provide fillofitphy postings for our blog. We will read the Part 2 7 3 installments of your postings for more detailed guidance.
