Dogs Could Fix Things

Here I am. All safe under my chair.

Here I am. All safe under my chair.

I am soooo sad today. There’s so much sadness in the world sometimes. And it’s all because humans do stupid things. Heartless things. Mean things. I wonder why?

Why be mean when there's so much beauty in the world? Like springtime blossoms on a tree against a backdrop of rain clouds?

Why be mean when there’s so much beauty in the world? Like springtime blossoms on a tree against a backdrop of rain clouds?

Or pretty flowers that just pop up anywhere because the birds spread their seeds. Squirrels, too. Why such violence and horror? How could be mean when nature gives Us so many pretty things?

I think we dogs could fix things if we ran the world. See, it’s like this:

  • We dogs take care of ourselves pretty well I think.
  • We eat. We pee. We poop. We play. We nap. We love.
  • And we do it all over again. Every day.
  • But most of all, we want to give love. Unconditionally.
  • Yeah, that’s it. Unconditional love. For everybody and everything.
  • Most of the time.
  • If humans would just act more like dogs, things would be better I think.
  • The peeps and I are so sad about the violence that happened yesterday at the Boston Marathon.
  • Senseless. Absolutely senseless.
  • I don’t think I know of a dog who could inflict that kind of violence. Do you?
  • If you ever feel like lashing out at somebody, just remember this: eat, play, pee, poop and love. It’s as simple as that.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

  1. I agree, some humans are full of hate and they aren’t able to see the good things in the world…why?

    WE agree, Stuart! Humans just need to wag their tails more, lay in the grass, chase the butterflies, take long naps, and enjoy the wonderful world around them. WE dogs do!

  4. I agree! The world would be much better off if dogs ran it. Maybe I should run for President.

    Why didn’t they do something useful like blowing up a squirrels’ nest?

    • Now that would have been violent wouldn’t it? I’m trying to work on my zen space for nonviolent kindness…..ooooOOOOOO! The mail man’s here…gotta run. Shoot. I can’t bark so much because it wouldn’t be kind of me.

  7. As I mentioned on Corbins blog – there are some people that love to love and others that love to hate. Why they feel that way and what gives them the right to justify that hate is beyond us.

    The wisdom of a Scottie… can be so profound.

  13. Donna Berberich says:

    I agree with you, Stuart. People do some mean and hateful things. Dogs could fix things as they know how to love, not hate. We should be more like the doggies in this world. I’m heartbroken!


  14. Merlin & Pixie says:

    Well said Stuart!

  15. Lynn Delage says:

    Some people are born without compassion so it does not bother them to hurt others. Other people have been so hurt by life, their parents, whatever, that they wish to hurt everyone else as revenge. So, be kind to each other you never know who it will help.

  16. Jazzi says:

    couldnt agree more with ya Stuart!! We should rule, our rule would be the best and everyone would get along just great!!

    Jazzi and Addi

    I’d love to give the world to the Scottish Terriers… what fun that would be.

  18. Alyssa says:

    We are so sad about what happened Stuart. Our boy is 8 just like the one who died because of the jerk who put the bomb there. We can’t imagine the amount of pain so many of those folks are in. If you dogs could only run the world, I think it would be a better place.
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

    It is a terrible sad thing. Something that happens far too often in this world, to too many people the world over.

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
