Dog Wisdom


" I’ve met a lot of wise people in my life and I’ve found that the wisest don’t
speak too much. But when they do, it’s worth taking note. Which brings me to
Ripley. She doesn’t speak much. Not at all, really. But I have learned quite a
bit from her silent observations. Ripley, you see, is my first dog. So perhaps
all dogs have a similar philosophical bent. I don’t know, I just don’t have
enough experience in the matter. I could imagine that a French poodle may lean
to Sartre, or a Shih Tzu to certain Taoist musings. As an American bulldog
Ripley seems to have a certain blunt matter-of-factness, but it could be just as
likely that dog wisdom is universal and transcends cultural and language
