Blue Dogs

The world seems to be in an uproar lately about health care.  Nobody's getting along.  But I think it's more than that.  Dogs are dogs.  We don't put labels on each other.  But I think it's all these labels that humans are putting on each other that's causing the problem.  Liberal, Progressive, Conservative, Democrat, Republican, Blue Dog... wait.  Blue dog?!  I was shocked to hear this.


Because although there is such a thing as a blue nosed pitbull (see above), there is no such thing as a dog who is into politics.  Politics, my dear reader, is where I think humans got it wrong.

Man, haven't you learned anything at all from your best friend?  Maybe if you spent more time with those of us of the canine persuasion you would understand how to treat each other better.  So here are some tips on how to start:

Forgive and forget.  Why hold a grudge?  If I held a grudge for every time my family left me home alone or every time someone was eating chicken and didn't give me any I would be mad all the time.  Let it go and be happy!

Be nice.  True, not all dogs are nice.  But most of them know how to treat each other.  Most of them know the protocol of how to act, react, and get along so that the entire dog park is a pleasant place to hang out.  And if someone is different than you, that's not a reason to fight.  It IS a great reason to get to know each other by taking a nap together.

Love unconditionally...
