Your Pet, The Philosopher

When I first heard people mention Plato I thought they were talking about the children’s toy Play-doh.  As I learned, Plato was actually a pretty wise guy, and not a wise-guy like we call some people back in Jersey. I recently stumbled on to a quote from Plato which I enjoyed – “A dog has the soul of a philosopher.”

Of course, every philosopher needs a philosophy so I thought about what Eko the philosopher might say to a roomful of students:

“If they can’t open the door, they can’t leave. If they can’t leave, they can’t leave without you.”

“Slow and steady isn’t much fun. Especially when you’re a turtle stuck in a corner.”

“Puppy dog eyes… 60% of the time, it works every time.”

“If it’s edible, eat it.  If it’s inedible, eat it.”

“Not everything that looks good tastes good”

“Give hugs. Often. At high speed, if necessary.”

So what about your four-legged philosophers, what are their philosophies on life?

Cody’s philosophy would have been:

– Take naps. The more comfortable, the better.
– Eat when the opportunity arises.
– All human food must make it to the fridge if you plan to eat it later.
– Farting and burping happens. Sometimes in your beloved human’s face. Sometimes it stinks.
– Share the love. (Which I think is most important.)
