    My uncle once told me words I've lived by. Any man a dog likes isn't all bad. He also said there was no such thing as a bad dog. I've yet to find him wrong. It's been said that taking dogs into our lives is the best deal humans ever struck ... recent studies have shown that we probably weren't that smart ... it was the dogs that did all the work there too. Today, there isn't much dogs don't do for us. They herd for us, work in all forms of law enforcement, defense and rescue. They even have been found to detect cancer just from our smells. Today ... I read yet another.

    I'll let you read that yourself. Bring kleenex.

    To whit, the point .... I think that dogs may well be our Babel fish. I share ..
    The key thing being that the likelyhood of nature randomly evolving something so incredibly well adapted to us as dogs ... from what is widely accepted as the single most dangerous species of predator on the planet ... Pretty damn close to nil.

    A quote that is attributed to Ben Franklin goes like this; "The existence of beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." I kind of agree with that, except that beer makes us fat and that usually makes us unhappy. I still love beer. My paraphrase of Ben's quote goes like so; " The existence of dogs is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." And I believe that's true. There is no other creature on Earth more suited to be our permanent and constant, faithful and loving companions. If your dog loves you, you can have no truer friend, other than Jesus Himself. I love all dogs.

    A house without a dog is an empty home.

    Yeah, I think dogs do a better job of being god-like than we do. If I get to heaven and God is like a big Australian Shepherd, I can be happy about that.
