A Heavy Heart – Je Suis Charlie

a heavy heartI come to you today with a heavy heart. Just when the New Year seemed to be off to a good start, Paris happened. This isn’t the first time my Scottie heart has been heavy because of man’s inhumanity to man.

This is why dogs should rule the world.

We wouldn’t have books that tell you what to do, what not to do and how to do it. Because we instinctively know what we need to live and how to live happily and well.

It’s simple:

  • We all need a safe, clean place to live.
  • We all need food in our bellies.
  • We all need to be loved and to show love in return.
  • We all need a pack of pals to play with.

That’s all there is to it.

And this applies to everyone everywhere.

In my world, there is no Paris 1/7/15, there is no Ferguson and there is no need for “I Can’t Breathe” t-shirts or rallies. It’s a place where little girls go to school to learn, and children just want to have fun.

My friends, this world isn’t a dog-eat-dog world, it’s a man-versus-man world. And it isn’t nice.

We dogs can take care of ourselves. For the most part. Unless we live in Korea. Or near Michael Vick.


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!

    Vous etes donc droit, messieur Stuart. (You are so right, Stuart). We have nothing to add. Adieu!

  6. Well said Stu. And da last 2 sentences made me crack up, so thanks for dat.

  7. Yes, dogs should rule the world.
    Hey wait, they already do. Humans feed them, walks them, pick up their poo, write blogs about them and generally wait on them hand and foot. By any objective measurement, dogs are the dominant species on Earth.

  8. We love you Stuart!! You are so wise.

    Agree, agree, agree! When the Peeps were across the pond a while ago they met a Scottie named Emile who came from Paris, but was in Germany at the time. All this bad stuff this week made HER say that she hoped Emile was safe. Humans need to just chill and let things be as people want. No more violence, please.

    Oh Stu I agree..we have just gone through this in Australia..and wonder why humans are so destructive…we could all do with a little reminder that the earth is only ours to lend for awhile..none of us better or worse none more entitled than another regardless of species.Sadly humans are not as in tune with what’s right as animals..sadly we do for sport or fun what animals do to survive..indeed a world run by dogs would be more about butt sniffing, leg cocking and tail wagging…a world I would gladly live in…take heart sweet Stu…not all peeps are this way and there are many many wonderful humans..those that rescue and help animals..those that help each other out and those that give us beauty in the forms of art and music ..so chin up little guy..we are family here and that makes us pretty good too. Much loves Fozziemum xxx

  17. I agree with you Stuart, it was a black day for my country and I cross my paws that this nightmare is over soon.

  18. PigLove says:

    I ❤ your philosophy my friend. Why can't we all just get along? I saw this morning that they have the suspects holed up. I do hope this entire nightmare ends soon and all of the humans can once again be safe. XOXO – Bacon
