I Am Still Here

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but my tenth birthday has given me some reasons for pause. What is my purpose in life? Does it really matter that I'm ten years old and yet haven't achieved milestones such as a monogamous relationship or perhaps ownership of some well-performing stocks? I like to think that it doesn't matter. My life is reasonably fulfilling. Yet I find that at times like this, it's important to take stock of life's treasures and of life's inherent challenges. This hasn't been easy of late considering B's busy work schedule and J's stresses about the thesis in combination with job interviews. Yet despite the difficulties posed by the Great Oppressors' insistence upon dwelling on life's roadbumps, I have spent many hours on the blue couch deciding what my next move will be. Considering that Joe Biden's recent attempt at simultaneously entering and exiting the presidential race may have left an opening, I am seriously considering a run for the highest office in the land. Let me think upon this...

nice to have you back, dooog!

I can empathise with your ponderings. I'm 8.5 years on this planet and all I've managed to accrue is five extra kilos, which Vet De Ville said I had to lose.

Take heart: at least you get to ponder on a blue couch indoors. I'm still outside (on a comfy bed, mind you, but outside all the same).

Just a bark of warning: it'd probably be pretty stressful, the ole top job. You might be better working on some other ploy to stockpile some bones and treats to add value to your meals.

Chow for now,

Tin Tin xo

sid--glad to have you back! i would totally vote for you. you look very articulate and clean. (ps. joe is my senator. and for some reason they still don't let us vote. sigh.)

i'm a senior citizen and i try not to spend too much time pondering the mysteries of life. i had my existential phase and now i just relish the good stuff-naps on the couch, an occasional bully and a nice bowl of kibble.

you take good care of your naked apes. there is nothing worse than the thesis. well, other than the job market. thank dog we're dogs, eh?

I believe that with the whole "dog years" concept, you could circumvent the Constitution's minimum age requirement. You'd have my endorsement.

Tin Tin- Thanks! It's true about the couch. The Great Oppressors aren't all bad.
Connie- With your new Laziked eyes you shall be able to gaze upon me rapturously.
Wally- Sorry about Biden. What a silly!
Mugsy- Many thanks... If Schwartzenegger thinks he can get some rules bent for his White House run, then so can I!
