It's A Dog's Life

Sunday, January 18, 2009

Well, as you can see, if you are a'lookin, is that I have even more really great shots of myself at the beach.

In case you don't know, a beach is like a lake only a lot bigger. This particular beach is called The Gulf of Mexico. But, you know what? It's not even in Mexico at all. It's right here in Texas. That's weird, I think. But, one thing that is like Mexico is don't drink the water. It's not good for dogs.

You can really see how big the beach is in this shot. I look good sitting there, don't I?

This is a shot of what I look like when I am running real, real, fast. See, my feet aren't even touching the ground. I'm really flying... really!

More Flying

If you are impressed about Jesus walking on water, well just look at me! I'm running on water.

I am really thankful for my good and fun time of going to the beach. And, best of all, I was with my guardian.

At the end of the day, Lindy put me in my car blanket and she dried me off and told me that I am wonderful. It was such a happy moment. I hope I get to go back to the beach soon.

Love to all,

  • Dear Rowan,

    You are beautiful! My Jane and I are so happy you had a flying time at the beach.

    I like water but not going in it. I walk on the edge of the bathtub sometimes and put a paw near the water. Jane says "Don't do that! You'll fall in!" I like the bubbles.

    We love it when you post pictures, Rowan. They always make us happy.

  • OK Reverendisimo Obispo Perito, you are having way too much fun! You may draw the ire of Orthodites on your ministry. They do not want anyone to have too much fun, or any fun usually.

    Today, the Gulf of Mexico still laps hundreds of miles of the shores of Mexico. And when the Gulf was given its name, the Gulf of Mexico's coastline, all the way to Key West, Florida, was a part of New Spain, including Texas, which was a part of Mexico.

    I will not bore you with how Texas was stolen from Mexico, because it happened more than 150 years ago. It is not good to hold a grudge that long. It interferes with playing!

    If you come to Monterrey, Mexico, where I live and work and sometimes play, you may drink the water. It is safer than the municipal water supply in many cities in the USA. But alas, we are a land locked state, and have no real beaches. Just a tiny stretch of river beach on the International border with the USA, along the Rio Bravo.

    I hope that you understood me well. I was trying to write in my best dog English.

    See you pal.

  • Aw, Bishop Rowan, it looks so great to be there at the beach. I'm not much of a water dog, but an occasional dip of the paw into the stuff is fine. I'm glad you left your miter in the car and didn't get it wet. You are truly an inspiration to the church of the potency of play in our lives!

    Play on!

  • Dear Rowan,

    My favorite picture is of you flying across the water with the skipping marks behind you. That is the best picture ever!

    I know you did a lot of running on the beach, so maybe next time, you can just try sitting down and listening to the beach. It tells a wonderful story. And in fact, sometimes I let the roll of the waves put me to sleep. The beach is a great place to take a nap.

    Please try it sometime.

    And I want to assure you Texas was not stolen from Mexico. Santa Ana signed away all rights to Texas in exchange for his life after Sam Houston outsmarted him and defeated Santa Ana's army.

    Come visit us real soon Rowan. I will have liver flavored treats for you and lots of good pats.

  • There is much more to the story than that and United Statesonians would never for a moment have accepted what the USA did to the United Mexican States had it been done to them. Had a US president been captured in war, he would not have the authority to sign away sovereign US patrimony, and neither did Antonio López de Santa Anna.

  • Bishop Rowan! You look swell on the beach, you handsome specimen of God's handiwork! I know your guardian, Lindy, is probably lurking behind the camera and having fun taking these splendid pictures. I hope she had fun at the beach and played in the water, too.

    I've missed you blogging and I'm glad to see you again in the blogosphere. Nuzzle Lindy for me, and tell her you want to check out my new companion, Joyful, on Pat's blog. She'll have to wade through a couple of silly posts about football and a rollicking good video called Born Again American to find Joyful. And, Rowan, I know its really hard to understand why some of us are so handicapped that we can't have a dog, but so life is. Joyful is a c.., a fel.... Oh, heck, she's not a dog. But she is a joy in my life!

    Fly on, Rowan!

  • You are the epitomy of joy and eternal happiness, +Rowan. I want to feel like that someday too, and only a dog can teach us how to be so free and happy because you are of God [dog spelled frontwards]. And your guardian is equally wonderful for sharing your life with all of us. Give Lindy some paw, bishop, for all of us.

    Here's a nice firm pat on the flank...dogs love that!

  • Santa Ana was a coward and a fool. That is why Mexico lost the Republic of Texas. No other reason.

    Da-Veed, you do not want to push me on this issue.
