Next Time Around, It's a Dog's Life for Me

If you've read my blog lately, you know I'm doing a lot of introspective, well, navel-gazing as I try to figure out how to be with myself in the second half of my life. Short name: fucking mid-life crisis.

My thinking isn't all gloom and doom about how nothing in life has meaning unless we say so.

Nope, on my recent trip to Colorado, I was talking to my dad about life after death. He said he likes the Hindu version where you keep working things out in successive in reincarnation after reincarnation until you finally figure it out and come back as a dog.

Since we'd spent some time with his Border Collie Zippy (pictured), that sounded pretty good to me.

My Life as a Dog

1. I'd never sweat the small stuff.

2. The only time I'd suffer depression is when someone I loved actually died.

3. Words like "walk" and "ball" would make my whole body shiver with pleasure.

4. I'd never have to look for a restroom while out for a walk.

5. I'd never have to brush my teeth before I kissed My Beloved.

6. I wouldn't spend so much time seeking sex for pleasure.

7. Once a month I'd sneak out of the house and get enough sex to hold me for the next nine weeks.

8. I wouldn't spend so much time on grocery shopping, food preparation or, even, eating.

9. I could spend the time saved (5-8 above) licking my own genitals.

10. While chasing a stick, I'd throw myself into the refreshing relief of irrigation ditches without worrying about the creepy mush on the bottom or the cows who've pooped in it.

Um...I'm sorry. I can't remember what you wrote, because I'm transfixed by whatever is being poked up your bottom.

You go, girl!

Thanks for putting that thought in my head.
I mean, what if it were true? And what if
there weren't enough border collies to go
around? Would I be condemned to coming
back as neurotic terrier? A shivering
Chihuahua? Or a fat beagle?

bipolybabe replies on 8/15/2006 9:14 am:
I hadn't considered that problem. I assumed, naturally, that I'd get to be a really cool breed.

Now, I have another thing to keep me awake at night!

Mmmm not sure about that one.. something awfully similar between dogs and humans..don't both end up sniffing around for some tail??

That reminds me....

Two dogs are looking at the Caller ID on a telephone.

One dog says to the other, "What's that?"

The second dog says, "An electronic butt sniffing device."

yeah but that whole lack of opposable thumbs thing is a total bitch. Plus, you list:

6. I wouldn't spend so much time seeking sex for pleasure.

as a bad thing? Nuts to that, I see that as an advantage!

Looking for sex isn't nearly as much fun as finding it. I just wish I didn't spend so much time and energy looking for it.

I'd think I'd rather be a cat, so I don't have to go outside to go potty. Hairballs are a bitch, though, and some of the food downright stinks.

Yuck. I don't wanna poop in a little tiny box. I'd rather go bury mine in the yard, thank you very much.

Don't you just love the way dogs just always live in the moment? I think the world would be a much better place if people think more like dogs. I truly think that dogs are angels sent down from heaven to teach us human beings some profound meaning of life, which can be as simple as well...simplicity. Living in the moment. Yep, you can see that I'm very much a dog person.

bipolybabe replies on 8/16/2006 3:17 pm:
Yep, one of my favorite authors Merrill Markoe has written a book "What the Dogs Have Taught Me" about this topic. In fact, I have probably stolen these and paraphrased them from her!
