Today, I had the occasion to see a man running with two big dogs. You can tell already that I’m getting ready to dis, can’t you? Neither of the horses, I mean dogs, were wearing leashes and they were all crossing other people’s yards.
Imagine if there had been a little dog in his own front yard while this crew rambled by. Do you think he could have stopped the massacre? Or maybe, being the independent guy he was without concern for others, he wouldn’t even try. Just more dog exercise.
You know how much I love animals. It’s their ignorant parents that get to me.
At this time, I don’t even take Madeline, our baby puppy, into the front yard without holding her in my arms. People constantly walk by with dogs, some leashed, some not. And another thing, while I’m dishing. None of them carry a doggy pick up bag if you know what I mean. Mowing, and I still do my own, isn’t fun unless you make sure to pick up other people’s messes first. Notice I didn’t say dog messes. That comes naturally to them but the people are not taking their duty as dog parents to heart. Let someone else clean up their mess.
Something I’ve been speaking of for some time is responsibility. Not only do we have accountability for ourselves but we also have it for others in the form of Karma. These people who think only of themselves will be charged a whole lot of Karma one day, if not in this life, then the next. Even more so, when we as a group get in the mode of taking care of ourselves only, then as a group we rack up some serious providence. For a few years I’ve noticed how some people are only out for themselves. We better realize quickly that because we’re all part of God (no matter which God you believe in), we owe each other respect and that’s not just for the human race either. Most animals treat each other with respect, that is, unless man had something to do with it.
Okay, now I feel better.
