Reggie the Egyptian Rescue Dog is Back: What Makes Me Sad and Angry

Although many of you humans are kind and compassionate towards us dogs there are many cruel and nasty ones that hurt, abuse, kill, ignore and try to intimidate us. Why are you humans so evil? We surrendered to your care thousands of years ago to protect, hunt with you and serve you. We are compassionate dogs, police and army dogs, narcotic sniffers, animal herders and guide dogs for the blind. But pardon me so many of you humans are ASSHOLES. We have a social contract with you humans. We want respect, love, decency and care. But some of you are worse than the animals that you think are below you. You beat us. You eat us. You abuse us. You kill us. You ignore us. You chain us. You starve us. What is wrong with you? I can only hope when your time is done on earth when you go to the land beyond that Allah, Jesus or Buddha or whatever God you believe in will treat you as you deserve to be treated. Some of you humans are so low you make me sick and angry. But most of you give us the respect we deserve. Thank you and may you be blessed.

You humans are often idiotic killing each other in the names of Allah or Christ. Terrorist bombings in the name of Allah. Who perverted Allah’s name to justify such atrocities? Who sanctions drone attacks and chlorine bombings in Syria? You humans say it’s a dog-eat-dog world but believe you me we dogs would not do with each other what you humans do to each other. It is bad enough what you do to us dogs but what you do to each other makes me sick. I often put my paws over my eyes when I watch the news with Fay because you humans who were given the earth to prosper destroy it and yourselves. Dare I say it but could it be if dogs ruled the world it would be a better place. No not a “Planet of the Dogs” but a caring and compassionate world.

Of course, I could devise a long list of what makes me sad and angry but I am too sad and angry to continue. This plague has been a blessing for us dogs! You must stay with us all day many of you. No dog walkers and hours of loneliness. If matters ever return to “normal” many of us will not know what it is like to be left alone for so long!

Of course, dogs do not get COVID! Perhaps we are not so inferior as many of you think. Perhaps it will soon be “Planet of the Dogs”?

Tomorrow Dylan the Westie and I are going to Niagara-On-the-Lake for three nights. This will be our second overnight trip there for us. I love Niagara Falls and especially when Bob holds me and Dylan the Westie over the rails looking at the Falls. I love the walk along the lake but we need our coats at it is winter.

We are all looking forward to this adventure. I love Niagara Falls and Bob and Fay may pick up some pizza and we will get some delicious chunks.
