Dog whisperer needed in this scenario

 

 

“We go through life and don’t pay attention to God even when he’s yelling. Then there are the moments you never expect and can’t avoid. It is at those times when you can hear him ever so clearly; even when he’s whispering.”  ― Benjamin J. Carey

In this photo montage it is interesting to note that only the woman in the wheelchair seems to be enjoying the company of her pups. The other participants are paralyzed by their attention to detail as they vigorously type, text and tweet their online friends. Another of life’s many ironies.

Man’s best friends in this series of school yard photos seems to be getting the short end of the stick  as their masters ignore their playful entreaties in favor of connecting with their friends.

Only the woman in the wheelchair seems to be thoroughly enjoying her dogs’ company as she puffs on her cigarette and allows the playful pups free rein to explore the terrain. She goes along for the ride with a sense of fun.

I think it is ironic that the mobile young adults above become immobile as they frantically text, tweet and chat with invisible friends on a social network connection. In this scenario Fido must pay the price and vie for their attention.

Many folks can handle the great outdoors but only as long as there is a cell tower nearby so they can keep in constant contact with their chat buddies.

No wonder so many pets are neurotic. They have been placed on the back burner of life and treated as pets when their master’s tweets, chats and texts have been sent and received.

There should be a bow-wow help line for these neglected animals.

At least contact a local dog whisperer to help your pet waether the stressful times when it takes a place on the back burner in your life’s daily action plans.

    • I feel sorry for the animals. They want to play and their beloved masters want to text. What a waste of a pets ambition. Oh well. Such is life. Enjoy the day. Thanks for writing. 🙂

  4. The bow-wow helpline. .that is a good one. Yes we have all checked out, myself included, always a device of some sort in our hands or within in arms reach.

    • Hi Robin. Sometimes it is best to let the battery in a cell phone run out of power so that a person can get back in touch with the real world. Have a wonderful day. 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for caring so much. It makes us sad when we see such disconnected owners. Thankfully we’ve hardly seen them since we moved to the Highlands. Lots of happy dogs and owners walking off-grid. You cannot get a signal in most of the places we walk. Even in the places that have a faint signal people keep their phones switched off. There’s still hope Gerry. Big wags and lots of love to you.

  6. Cell phones are a conundrum. I have to have one with me at all times and only once had the unfortunate fall across the room from it. That said….seeing people over dinner, using their cell phones constantly instead of looking at or speaking to each other is truly sad. And it’s only getting worse. If terrorists really wanted to cripple America they would take out cell towers instead of people.

    • Cell phones are neutral. It’s their users that are the real conundrum. There should be a social etiquette as to when to use and not use a a cel phone. I wonder if anyone uses their cell phone during sex? That’s right…there are hand free units available.
