OUR FRIENDS

Hello, PERIMETER PUPPIES,IN THIS ERA OF MACHINERY,AND TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES,WE ARE GROWING EVER DISTANT FROM OUR FELLOW COMPATRIOTS,OUR MAMMALIAN FRIENDS.
BEFORE THE AUTOMOBILE,WE USED OUR FRIEND THE HORSE,AND THEY SERVED US FAITHFULLY ,FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS,IN BATTLE AND IN TOIL,THE HORSE WAS THERE,HE WASN'T AS RECIPROCAL AS OTHER MAMMALIAN FRIENDS BECAUSE WE HAD TO BREAK HIS SPIRIT ,AND FORCE HIM TO LET US MOUNT ,AND CONSTRAIN HIM,BUT IF KEPT AS A PET ,THE HORSE WOULD FOLLOW IT'S MASTER TO HELL,ALL HEART AND LOVE.
IN THIS REMAKE ,OF THE HISTORICAL ERAS,BY THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY,THEY FAIL TO SHOW ONE THING,THE FACT THAT THE ANCIENTS, AND EVEN IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY ARMIES, ALL HAD THEIR LOYAL AND FIERCE FRIEND, THE DOG ,FIGHTING RIGHT BESIDE THEM.
ROME THE GREATEST AND LONGEST STANDING EMPIRE,WAS FOUNDED BY TWO LOST BABY BROTHERS,THESE TWO BOY'S WERE RAISED BY A WOLF,SHE FED AND NURTURED THEM ,TILL THE EPIC SAGA OF ROME WAS BEGUN.
EVERY STANDARD BEARER ,OF A ROMAN LEGION ,WORE A WOLF PELT OVER HIMSELF, REMINDING THE MEN ,WHERE AND HOW, THEY CAME ABOUT, AND HOW TO COMPORT THEMSELVES IN BATTLE,AS FIERCE AS THE MOTHER SHE WOLF.
WHAT HOLLYWOOD FAILS TO SHOW ,IS THAT THE ANCIENTS ALSO HAD THE WOLF AS AN ALLY IN BATTLE ,AND WHAT A FIERCE AND NOBLE ALLIE HE WAS .
ALL THE WARRIOR SOCIETIES,SPARTANS , PERSIANS ,ALL HAD THE DOG AS AN ALLIE IN BATTLE.
THERE IS A TRUE STORY, FROM THE ISLAND OF TAIWAN,OF A FISHERMAN,AND HIS DOG ,AN AKITA BREED I BELIEVE,EVERY DAY THE FISHERMAN WOULD GO OUT TO SEA TO FISH, AND THE DOG WOULD WAIT ALL DAY, AT THE SHORE FOR HIS RETURN.
ONE DAY A FIERCE STORM DROWNED THE FISHERMAN ,AND HE DID NOT RETURN.
THE DOG WOULD NOT LEAVE THE SHORE, CERTAIN HIS MASTER WOULD COME BACK,THE PEOPLE OF THE AREA SAW WHAT LOYALTY THE DOG HAD ,AND FED HIM AND CARED FOR HIM ,BUT HE WOULD NOT LEAVE THE SHORELINE,TILL HE EVENTUALLY DIED,POSSIBLY FROM THE STRESS OF HIS MASTERS ABANDONMENT.
THE VILLAGERS WERE SO MOVED ,BY SUCH AN EXAMPLE OF LOVE AND DUTY, THAT THEY PUT A STATUE OF THE DOG ,AT THE SHORE,AND THAT IS WHERE IT IS STILL TODAY.
FRIENDS LIKE THAT, ESPECIALLY AMONG HUMANS, ARE VERY HARD TO FIND.
YET TO THIS VERY DAY WE LOOK DOWN AT OUR FRIEND ,AND CASUALLY TREAT HIM AS A DUMB ,LOWER CAST OF CREATURE THAN US,THE GREAT HUMAN BEING.
SHAME,IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY.FRONZ./DEC/22/07.

Perimeter Pooch your resentment towards the system is evident by virtue of your vindictive overtones and allegorical anecdotes contained therein.
You are correct about the wolf species next to the soldiers side...even Hitler and his henchmen had loyal dogs.
A dog is the only animal that will lick the hands of it's killer while the human species contains defective, soulless creatures that will lick the hand of what they've killed.
Life on this planet, in the company of other human beings, is treacherous. Look at the sickos that torture, maim and kill, and in some cases "cannibalize"
(Edie Amin of Uganda) anyone under their control.
I too am disgusted with humanity but we must never let our disdain interfere with our quest for the wisdom that is needed to transform into a peaceful species capable of existing in harmony with our world.
If we were to return to nature and be guided by our instincts, as nature intended, would we utilize the wolf or dog for companionship or as a killing tool?
You see Perimeter Pooch, thus is the nature of man, we are what we are and there's nothing we can do about it. We are the only creatures that willfully inflict pain and suffering upon ourselves let alone have compassion for another living entity, man or animal.
We are victims of our vices and hostage to our temptations...why?
But we go on with or without a dog.
Remember Perimeter Pooch "you only have to endure to conquer; never, never,never given up."
Our endurance will be the standard by which we are judged.

OH, GREAT SAGE,EVERY MAN IS DIFFERENT ,WHAT ONE MAN CAN ENDURE ANOTHER WOULD DIE,TO BE JUGED ON TOUGHNESS IS AS SIMPLE A RESPONSE AS AN ANCIENT MAN WOULD MAKE.
BUT TO BE JUGED ON RESPONSE TO ANOTHER ENTITIES SHORTCOMINGS,THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS WORTH HOLDING OUT TO JUDGEMENT.WE WILL BE JUDGED BY HOW WE TREAT OURSELVES AND HOW WE HAVE TREATED OUR FELLOW ENTITIES,MORE TO THE ENTITIES THAT TRUST US TO TAKE CARE OF THEM,AND ALLOW THEM THE RESPECT AND FREEDOM TO LIVE OUT THEIR LIVES WITHOUT PREJUDICE.FRONZ/DEC/26/07
