Mommy went to see the movie, Marmaduke yesterday, and she said it was an excellent movie. The acting by the cast of dogs was truly amazing. She thinks it should get the Oscar for Best Picture, but you know that won't happen because the humans would never give the Oscar to a movie about dogs. I have to wait to see the movie when it comes out on dvd because normal, non-service dogs aren't allowed in theatres. I told Mommy I could pose as a service dog, but she said no one would believe a service dog is pulling a human into the theatre. Then she laughed. I didn't see anything particularly funny about it, but I think most humans have an odd sense of humor.
Sometimes I see things in the news that a dog just has to blog about, and yesterday was no exception. I wasn't able to write yesterday because Blogspot would not let me sign in. I wondered if it was part of a vast conspiracy on Blogspot to keep a dog from posting his thoughts to share with the world, but that is a different subject, so I'll save it for another time. Today I want to concentrate on the subject that needs input from a dog--school lunches! Food is always a subject near and dear to a dog so you can understand how this is a top priority subject for me. Most school lunches are not cooked at school anymore, and some of the adult humans are upset that there are things like chicken nuggets on the menu. They think it should be healthier food. I did my research for this blog by asking my family about school lunches when they were children. Mommy said when was young, the school cafeteria actually cooked the food. The food back then was more nutritious, and she said when you passed by the cafeteria when she was young, the smell could drive you to lose lunch that you haven't eaten yet. Her mother would have welcomed chicken nuggets because she used to volunteer at the school a lot and her observation was that most of the lunches ended up in the garbage. What are they doing to do to make them healthier, serve the children tofu and bean sprouts? I don't think I'm wrong in stating that if a dog won't eat the lunch, chances are you won't get a child to eat it either. We dogs think humans worry about things too much. Very few dogs worry about how much nutrition we are getting from our food. If it tastes good, we eat it. This leads me to wonder, why do the humans get so obsessed with these subjects. I think it is because some of the humans have a hard time admitting that there are things beyond their control. Illness and accidents are beyond their control so there has to be a reason for them--either it was what they ate or they weren't careful enough. This makes the healthy ones feel better because nothing can happen to them--they ate a healthy meal. Sure, try to eat healthy, but I think the humans would be happier if they quit worrying about everything so much. Maybe a bit of thanks for having enough food might be in order. There are children in the world who don't get enough to eat. By the way, Angel Zoom Smokey says if the kids don't want the chicken nuggets, send them to her--she loves chicken.
