Where Are We Headed ????

Ya always think yer gonna have a good day when ya wake up in the morning. Ya always think yer gonna have a good meal 'n lots of playtime 'n unconditional love and affection. Ya think of comfort and warmth when it's cold in the winter and cool water and cool air when it's hot in the summer.

Ya think yer world is the only one around and ya don't venture too far outta yer comfort zone. Yer life is great and yer not worried about where yer next doggie biscuit is comin' from or yer next bowl of ice cream.... Then the black clouds roll in like they did around here again tonight. We had another storm where the thunder roared and the lightening streaked across the sky. And the rains fell...... The rains didn't bother us at all, cause it cooled things off a bit and the tomato plants got some free water and so did the pepper plants and Gram's flowers.

But the black clouds are causin' a lot of trouble in the stock market. The Dow dropped more than 358 points today and the price of a barrel of oil closed a fraction under $140 for the first time ever. The thunder and lightening from that storm will be felt around the world....

These black clouds are causin' people all around the world ta wonder if they can buy food tomorrow with the risin' prices. People are losin' their homes left 'n right and some of 'em can't afford ta buy gasoline fer their cars ta get ta work. If things keep goin' on like this, many will not be able to heat their homes this winter. Ya can bet that crime is gonna rise like the Phoenix from the ashes as people try ta get the basic necessities ta survive...... Do ya think that the do-nothings in Congress in Washington can get off their duffs long enough ta stick their heads out the door ta see whats what? They can't seem ta see the clouds at all. All they seem ta see is the sun shine.

Now ya might be wonderin' how Dewey Dewster knows about the workings of the world...'n the sufferin' goin' on...'n the fact that there is a U.S. Congress in Washington at all.....

Hey, ya might be wonderin' how Dewey Dewster knows that there even is a Washington, D.C. in this country. Well, Dewey Dewster has been talkin' 'n listenin' ta his Gram since he was born and if he didn't pick up somethin' after all that listenin', he would be pretty stupid indeed.

If the U.S. Congress continues ta debate and fight about who's at fault here, those black clouds are never gonna go away........

Ya all better take shelter from the rain.......

Dewey Dewster reportin' on where we're goin'....

The pictures of the clouds are terrific...bad news in beautiful packages!

You are so right when you say that these dark clouds spell gloom. Fortunately our life-span ensures that the long-term consequences of rash human actions don't impact us - but then the price-rise definitely has. India is experiencing double-digit inflation after 15 years and the businesses are thinking in terms of price-increases to beat it!

About the climatic changes...well, we've seen heavy rains in place of summers - In fact, we didn't experience summers at all! This is expected to affect the food supply!

Eventually, all this is going to affect us too:) But then, the humans are smart...they'll find out a way - I guess they are already experimenting with the use of hydro-power for automobiles!

I think I should stop listening to their conversations, lest the motivator (you know who) loses her motivation to motivate!

Licks and Wags,

Asta's comment made me feel very sad! I hope things will improve fast.

This comment doesn't make much sense in the overall structure of this post...yet!

(Well, it does say that the life that a dog leads, remains the same all over the world.)

Hi Dewey,

Thanks for the link.

"Atoning for submissiveness through delicate beauty!" Ahem!

Well, did you compare me with Mary Poppins?! I am hurt. (Now, please don't think that I am presenting myself as supremely intelligent and atoning for it through my "delicate?" beauty.) I am not a wee bit like Ms. Mary Poppins! I assure you.

Did you think that I was an American Doggie? Really?!

An Indian what I am:)

Five years ago, I was born right in the heart of the heart of India - in the center of Delhi. Five years ago, I died (well, almost) in the same place!:( And then, five years ago, I was reborn, again in India:)

But then Dewey, dogs don't believe in national boundaries...right? We believe in one world! So I belong a little bit of every nation, every continent - just the way you do! There isn't an iota of difference in our dos and don'ts or in our likes and dislikes:)

We are just the same...everywhere! I wish humans could learn from us! (But then if wishes could come true so easily, I would have many other high-priority wishes!)

On a different note:
I love the way you put your thoughts into words!

Posted at and, simultaneously (well, almost!)

Licks and Wags!

I am sure glad to know such a smarter reporter like you. We must all be kept updated with your reports! Those clouds look awfully scary. You sure look comfy in your bed!

Abby said...

Hi, Dewey...

I hear my Mom & Dad talking, too...

When they see the dark clouds they get worried...But they keep doing what they do, hoping that someone in the big city will notice what's going on...

We can only hope...Right??

It's too bad the congress isn't as smart as us doggies! We all know how to get along together and we are better at economics too. After hooman dollar equals $7.00 in dog money. All we have to do is get the hoomans to use dog money and all our problems will be over!

Wow, you are a very well informed pup, Dewey! I have trouble comprehending world events.
Myself, I always blamed the cat.

Happy Tails,

Maggie & Mitch said...

You are one smart doggie, Dewey Dewster! I guess we're going to get LOTS of use out of our winter coats this year if someone out there isn't paying attention to you! What awesome cloud pictures!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Eric said...

Awsome post Dewey and the photos were too. I have those same black storm clouds over my head too all the way over here even though the sun is shining eand I listen to my two leggededs too. Sure is a worry.. Oil is now over $140 and petrol here is over £6 ($12)a wonder I walk everywhere . . .let's hope those hoomans finally wise up ...
Worried wags Eric

Koobuss said...

Yes, Dewey, times are bad and will most likely get worse. We must lower our demand for oil somehow, through the use of alternative fuels and conservation. The oil producers do seem to have us over a barrel. (Pun not intended.) It would be so nice if we didn't need them anymore, or at least not as much.

Try not to worry, sweetie. Don't let all this get you down. It's summer and time for fun. As for me, I'm lucky. My kar gets outstanding milage. :)

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
