Thoughts on My Dogma

Have you met my boxer, Mohammad?


noun \ˈdȯg-mə, ˈdäg-\

plural dog·mas also dog·ma·ta
1 a : something held as an established opinion; especially : a definite authoritative tenet b : a code of such tenets <pedagogical dogma> c : a point of view or tenet put forth as authoritative without adequate grounds
2 : a doctrine or body of doctrines concerning faith or morals formally stated and authoritatively proclaimed by a church

My dogma:

  • has been neutered
  • doesn’t like cats
  • is in constant need of attention
  • loves to have its belly rubbed
  • enjoys being taken out to talk to the other dogmas in the neighborhood (and sniff their butts)
  • unconditionally loves me
  • sometimes destroys the things I love
  • has fleas
  • occasionally stinks
  • won’t hunt
  • is sometimes a bad dogma
  • is happy when I come home to it after having been away for a while
  • despises the garbage man
  • is only partially house-trained
  • is kept in a crate
  • and, of course, got run over by someone’s karma
