Listen To Your Dog

Your dog has an indispensable dispatch, a critical communique. Are you listening? Your dog is howling at sirens, annoying all your neighbors. Have you noticed? Your dog’s evolutionary chain from wolves, a prescriptive instinct. Are you appreciating? Your dog’s howling though, is much more, the opening of a primordial door, the call to a roaming distant pack, a whining ballad to wilder tribe crying back. Your dog prays to something larger than himself, and because you are leading the pack, it includes you. This then, a necessity to survive. This then, the most fundamental meaning of God! Your dog is howling at sirens. Listen to your dog!
