Dogs and Digital Tombs

Dogs and Digital Tombs
This is the best feature article I read during Christmas,2011.
Unfortunately it is taken off the main page and I had to search for it today.
I have some extracts below for your perusal.
I have a suggestion for French and People in Paris.
Instead of stoned tombs in the cemetery, they should have a server with DIGITAL TOMB with all the photographs and videos of the dogs when they were alive and well for not so dog lovers or dog loving Sri-Lankan administrators to see.
For the poo (“crottes de chien”), I have suggestion, they must send them to Sri-Lanka as fertilizer for the Banana Plantation we are growing in the thick of virgin forest to feed American entrepreneurs.
We love anything including “poo”, if it is foreign but make sure they are scented with French cosmetics for poos, please.
This is good for our City Planners in Kandy and Colombo where dogs are rounded up and slaughtered and some end in dinner plates as “chicken substitute”.
It is no point saying all the beings be happy and content like a mantra.
Without them (dogs) we cannot protect our things from petty thieves.

The pampered pooches of Paris
By Joanna Robertson Paris
Pet dogs in the French capital appear to enjoy the freedom of the city, accompanying their owners just about everywhere – and even have their own cemetery.
The pampered pooches of Paris
By Joanna Robertson Paris
Pet dogs in the French capital appear to enjoy the freedom of the city, accompanying their owners just about everywhere – and even have their own cemetery.
There are hundreds of thousands of dogs in Paris.
They can be chosen from puppy-shop windows or ordered from countryside breeders.
They are seen traveling about the city, nestled amongst the groceries in shopping trolleys or peering out of handbags.
Dogs perch on the running boards of mopeds – ears flying in the wind – or sit, swathed in blankets, in bicycle baskets.
They are petted on the bus, the tram and the metro and, for a flat-rate ticket costing 5.10 euros (£4.25), the smaller ones can escape the metropolis and take the train to anywhere in France.
Access all areas
When on all four paws, dogs in Paris can choose from 72 gardens to walk in – from formal palace grounds to tiny urban squares.
In between, they can mark lamp-posts, trees, ornamental masonry and the corners of Art Nouveau metro stations to their hearts’ content.
Paris dogs snooze under cafe tables and sit politely in restaurants.
They are allowed into shops – even when officially not – and, from time to time, sneak into cinemas, usually for a matinée on a wet afternoon.
Each dog has its own preferred vet and there are hundreds to choose from.
Each vet has a preferred dog diet. Calves liver, braised. A little “blanc de poulet” (white chicken meat) or a slice of rare roast beef.
What goes in must come out, and Paris dogs apparently drop 20 tons (20,000 kg) of “crottes de chien” (dog poo) on the city’s streets every day, although who exactly weighs it remains a question that even the Hotel de Ville (Town Hall) cannot answer.
From time to time, the city’s more creative residents have used the crottes as pavement art, sticking them with coloured flags, photographing and painting them.

Maha Brahma and his Dog

This story was related to me by one of my yesteryear friends, not a doc but a dog now in high heaven.

I am well versed from the time of Maha Brahma’s Assistant who was a Kandy dog frequenting rubbish bins in Kandy including Malwatta temple and by some clever means twisted the arm of the Maha Brahma and managed to get the present post.

I knew the dog well and once in a way he sends me an errand of some sort by email. I cannot send any email to him because it is not permitted by law of the heaven for human to send email direct but there is no restriction of outgoing email from heaven, though, very randomly. I am told they use a type of Linux distribution where in the tradition incognito the log, memory and search routes and rules are erased without a trace. I am trying to crack this and get some stories for earthling and I cannot wait till the next Buddha’s time and appearance which is eons away.
As a form of grace they release some random stories and and I have the privilege of knowing the dog first and the current Brahma’s Assistant and by that virtue a few of the stories circulating in heaven.

The story predates his time (present Assistant) and this time it was Pedigree dog.

This pedigree dog was resident of a demented man who was politician of yesteryear.

He was demented because of his bounty of alcohol when in and out of power. But sadly he lived up to ripe old age of nineties, physically well but mentally demented. The dog died soon after the master’s demise but because of his virtues and because he happened to reach heaven at the time of our New Year holiday, he was put on the waiting list.
There were quite a number of dogs who reached there at the very same instant. Maha Brahma without an assistant then had great difficulty in selecting the correct protocol and the correct next round of births that they deserve.

Because this dog came from high office on earth he was very well noted by the Maha Brahma for extra credit.

Maha has a set of standard questions and it is very difficult to outsmart him.

He did not leave the demented politician now completely neglected by his party members, family members and the like but this faithful dog was with his master till his last few seconds on earth. My friend told me not to disclose where about of this politician now but suffice is to say much less honourable quarters than his favorite dog.

In his conversation with Maha this dog had lot of questions from the Master Being.

The pedigree dog could not understand why the behaviour of his master changed in latter stages of his life with dementia who could not remember the dog’s name and used to call various odd names and forgot to feed him or fleece him.

He was telling Maha it was very unfair for a dog to be with a human in that stage of life and state and why only humans get demented and not dogs barring of course hydrophobia.

Maha did not have a suitable answer and he was impressed by this dogs devotion to his master when all earthlings deserted him high and dry including doctors.

There were lot of other dogs of lowly human settings including beggars, humbugs and the lot, Maha was pushed up to his neck and told the pedigree dog to wait for another day for a change and he could become his dog for a day and stay with him overnight.

This he could not decline.
He was so pleased with the offer did not bother the Master Being for even an overnight meal and went to sleep like a log.

Maha had other ideas and wanted to observe and test him before offering the next round of birth, the next day. But he lost this opportunity and in any case for his calm demeanour Maha was highly impressed.

The next day also Maha went on with his mundane routine affairs and was not ready with a place for our pedigree dog. That day was the same result, the pedigree dog that day went into dream mode thinking what a nice place he is going to get the next day.
This went on for a week and for some unknown reason Brahma had hit high on this week and was finding easy with his decision making.

In fact Brahma was enjoying his company which was docile but very pleasant.
It was the same with the dog who had a very painful last few months on earth with the demented politician.
So he became less chatty and never asked any favours from the new master the Master Being himself.

Master also never offered a new lease or round of births by default.

Well Maha also knew one day when his term of office ends like the politician and when he has to go he has to go and he did not want to go alone.

Master needed a companion.

So the Maha and his dog came into being and they got eons to go.

So do not ever think of becoming the master’s dog or the master’s assistant.
They are on eternal holiday without fire crackers and assistant is doing the mundane rounds without a break (he loves it though being a descendant of paraya or the stray dog clan).

In my case I am looking for post of the server manager in heaven with my experience in hell this may lead to better and faster Linux Protocol and Administration there in heaven.

The dog, The dog Lover’s Heart Disease and Fire Cracker Menace

I often wonder why dogs get same diseases like human except a few.

We get diabetes and dogs get diabetes.
We get arthritis and dogs get arthritis.
We have hip problems the dog too have hip dysplasia and the lot.
We get skin diseases and the dogs also get skin diseases.
We get allergy and dogs get allergies.
Dog gets heart problems and we get heart problems but with a difference.

Having a dog is good for the heart but I do not think having a heart patient is good for the dog which curtails his exercise routine and he becomes chubby and in reality more heart disease prone.
We get cataract and dogs get it too.

These things are common with pedigree dogs but not nearly so in paraya or the stray dogs.

What a crime these poor animals have done to be with us and have all the tendencies of our own.

I do not know but the Maha Bramma knows it for better or worse.

But there is a big difference in old age we get dementia and we forget even the dog’s name who was with us which is very unfortunate for the dog as well as the owner.
But dogs will never get dementia and they will remember us till they die, whether we are poor or rich.

Thank god their life span is shorter and they do not have to go through with a family  after family of forgetful people.

When the next turn of life cycle comes or the rebirth comes they are better and wiser if they ask for another life style without human diseases from Maha Brahma who is looking after their interests after their death.They deserve a better life for their loyalty alone and I hope they will be with gods and angles next time round and look after our failing health, memory, eyesight and hearing from above.
If we care for three dogs in our lifetime, guess there will be three guardian angles looking after our interests up from above.

But Maha Brahma should have a firm hand on this issue and anybody who light fire crackers for cheap fun during new year and politicians who get their supporters to light fire crackers to herald their arrivals during festive times should be excluded from guardian angle duty of the dogs who left us (kick the bucket the man at the postmortem -morge-room says) in fear of fire crackers if not thunder during New Year.

When I see my dog in fear not knowing what to do except to hide under my bed, I now have a firm conviction that all of us dog lovers sick or otherwise should get up and say no to fire crackers and ban them in toto.
