Papi & The Buddha
My favorite little cuddle buddy. My handsome little papi. I was thinking
this morning about the fact that even though I am not Buddhist, but do
appreciate and try to practice a Buddhist philosophy, I have a shit load
of Buddhas, they give me a since of calm and peace. Can someone have to
many Buddha's? What does any of that have to do with my cuddle buddy.
Papi is the most multi faceted dogs I have ever known. He is a flirt, he
has a sense of fairness, a since of little Alpha authority, confidence,
a wicked sense of humor, and he is very introspective, and in fact he may very well be a
Buddhist. You see when he was a wee pup, I came home one day, I noticed
his 8 inch tall new puppy self standing in front of my 3 foot tall
Buddha, as I approached I noticed that Papi had given an offering to
Buddha, I was not pleased, I was very angry, now years later, and not long after the fact it makes me laugh hard at the thought of it.. You
see Papi had somehow backed himself up at least a foot onto the Buddha,
and left a steaming prize right dead center in the Buddha's hands. It
struck me later that he really put a lot of effort, for either dog
laughs, or giving the only offering he had... I am taking pics of all my
Buddha's today. I love them. The broken Buddha head is one of the oldest one I have, Steve's uncle got him back in the 50's or 60's,
and it is the one that Papi....favored....and he was
broken during a move. He always looks like he is in nirvana, and will
open his eyes at any moment... I love it.
