Good for Dogs, Part III: A Corollary

Okay, this isn't an entry about things that are Good for Dogs. This is an important corollary:

Humans cannot decide what is Good for Dogs.

This should be obvious! Only dogs can decide what is good for them, because we are the only ones that really know! I can't tell my mom what is Good for People - except that I will make rrrring noises until I get what I want, so why can she and my dad tell me what is Good for Dogs?

Humans think things like the vet and the Dremel are good for dogs. This is not true, and they wouldn't know.

Of course, I am a smart dog, so I have some insight into what is Good for People, so here's another corollary:

What is Good for Dogs is Good for People.

For example, tennis balls are good for dogs. If I want to play with my tennis ball (Good for Dogs), and my mom will not throw me the ball, I will rrrr and pester her until she throws the ball. Humans respond well to pestering, and so I propose that they just do what the dogs want. That is Good for People.

All the other weird stuff that is good for them they can figure out on their own.

Ooh, I had my first dremel experience last night-- how can they think this thing is good for dogs?!

I totally agree that balls are good for both dogs and people! Especially once you've played with a while so they're nice and slimy. People love to get that ball dropped in their lap!

Oooo- would you like to be a guest lecturer to my class? It's Canine Life Skills 101, and I think you have some valuable things to share with my very gifted students... We sometimes have lecturers who offer graduate-level info, like when Ms. Gussie Finknottle taught Advanced Pouting.

Check out my diary, where all my classes are posted, and let me know by pawmail if you would like to share your knowledge with my class.

Prof. Chester, hopefully
