Philosophy: A Dogs Life?

Francis Bacon, "Painting of a Dog" (1952)
Francis Bacon, "Untitled (dog)" (~1967)
Uncompromising love, even a dog punished returns to lick the fingers of its master.
"Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit."
Eyes that look beyond the faults of those who love it,
"In the final analysis, love is the only reflection of man's worth."
Always eager to greet us, and anxious to go along,
"We are each of us angels with only one wing. We can only fly while embracing each other.'
Leading the blind and the disabled gracefully,
"The soul that can speak with its eyes can also kiss with a gaze."
Warning of dangers nearby, ever watchful of all approaching,
"A barking dog is often more useful than a sleeping lion."
- Artis (~2008)

I once heard a man say, "Be the person your dog thinks you are."

Many once aspired to "The Master" Discourse... but most today prefer the dog's. :(

...must be the attraction of a guaranteed, "three hots and a cot".
