I have a confession. In my previous life, I was a dog lover. Dog lovers. I have a dog. A four year old rescue dog named Nala who was rescued from the pound for being too aggressive, but I am so happy knowing that he is now a part of my family. I adore this sweet guy, so I am very happy to see him eating a piece of bone from a dead dog.
If you’ve never had a dog, you’ve probably thought that they’re just like dogs—they’re cute and cuddly and all that. But there are a lot of things that dogs aren’t. They have emotions. They have feelings. There is a difference between how dogs act and how they think. Dogs think. Dogs are not stupid. Dogs can reason. Dogs can solve problems. Dogs are loyal. Dog brains are still the same.
Dogs can smell. Dogs can hear. Dogs can tell you what is in your fridge. Dogs are smart. Dogs can sense your fear and your anger. Dogs can smell fear in a person. Dogs can tell if a person is drunk or sober. Dogs can tell if a person is lying. Dogs can tell if you’ve got a fever. Dogs can tell if you’ve got rabies.
Dogs are smart. That’s what makes them so much fun. One thing that they don’t have is a sense of humor. So that means they can’t really talk to you. But if you feed them a bone and they bite you, at least they probably wont die.
Not very many people are going to take the time to feed your dog a bone or cut up a piece of meat on the grill. People are too busy trying to figure out what to do with their lives. But you can always send your dog to the vet. Maybe they will be smart enough to figure out a way to be useful after all.
In all seriousness, I love the idea of dogs eating their own ribs. I would love to see dogs who are also people. But I am not sure if that is a good thing. I would think that dogs would probably just like it and maybe even enjoy it. But I doubt they would enjoy it enough to be worth anyone’s time. But then again, maybe they would be so attached to it that they would be just as happy to see someone else enjoy it as they are.
I’m not sure about that. I’m not sure about it, either, but it seems like it’s a terrible idea. I know I am not trying to be a good dog person but I am not sure I am a good person.
Just as dog owners have their own reasons for their dogs to like to chew things (or at least that’s what it seems like), so do we have our own reasons for our humans to like to chew bones. It is not a bad idea for dogs to like to chew bones because they need to chew to get their energy levels up. But there is also a good reason for humans to like to chew bones.
I understand why it is bad for us to chew bones, but in our society we are expected to eat a lot of meat, so it is good for us to chew bones. But the problem here is that if we are not willing to give our own bodies what we need to satisfy our hunger then we have no reason to enjoy eating them. In that case, we are also no longer healthy.
And if you do not feel healthy, you are not very likely to eat them. In fact, if you are sick you will likely avoid eating them. So the question is, are we really supposed to be happy if we are not able to eat them? Well, if you’re not eating them you can try to get your own heart and lungs healthy by eating them, so maybe it is possible that you can be happy if you are not sick.
