the rain falls…

i love our pond!

I’m a rather worldly dog. I’ve travelled a lot, and I am equally as comfortable chasing squirrels in the city as I am barking at a porcupine in the country. One of the things I’ve noticed in all my experiences is that it really is true that the rain falls on the just and the unjust alike.

What’s this mean? You cannot tell by looking at a dog’s circumstances whether or not that dog is just or unjust. He’ll get rained on when it rains just the same as all the others in the yard. Good dog, bad dog, just the same: they both get wet from the rain.

So, you might ask, then what does it matter? If we’re all going to get wet, why bother trying to be a righteous dog? Why not be deceptive, selfish, and petty? Why try to right your wrongs or treat others as good neighbors? Why try behave with dignity? Why respect life?

The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind.
