On Dogs, Philosophy, and Dog Heaven

Quotes and Notes #175, April 29

“Dogs and philosophers do the greatest good and get the fewest rewards.”—Diogenes—

You may feel secure in telling your dog your most secret, personal, and private feelings because the dog will never betray you. All your dog asks in return is a lot of care and petting along with a bacon treat every now and then.

And as for philosophers, try this:

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.”—Mark Twain—

But Dogs are short-lived compared to philosophers. Now and then we are left with only fond, loving memories. RIP, Speck Coondog who went to Beulah Land on April 29, 2015 and is now chasing squirrels and bacon treats in Dog Heaven.  We will miss you, Speck.
