“Sunday’s with Ollie” Sniffing things out.


My Tom opened the windows this morning. I love the fresh air and all the smells it brings with it. I also hear the sounds outside much more louder, as if everything is much closer than it really is, like the dogs in the neighborhood. We are all very protective of our tribe and territory and sometimes we overreact because we feel threatened. It’s easy to be tough when I have a fence dividing me from them, but if that fence is open I could get myself in a bit of trouble if I overreact. Calmly taken a few moments to sniff things out I am able to realize that even though we all look different we’re still the same specious. We’re all dogs. For us smells speak loader than barks.  

I wish humans had a better smell factor. I hear the violence that goes on between them on the TV. It grabs my attention as I hear load popping sounds, people screaming and yelling at each other. I can’t smell the things that I see flashing before me, so I pace back and forth jumping up at it growling trying to chase them away from my tribe. It’s exhausting and I’m glad when my people turn it off.

I’m so glad I’m a dog, being human is so complicated. I see now though why the dog God made us man’s best friend. We have a calming effect on them and when they relax their better able to think things through, the same way us dogs do when we take the time to sniff things out. Getting along is so much better than having dog fights all the time. Why can’t we all just look beyond the different fur we wear and sniff things out before reacting? Why can’t we all just get along?
