Everyone knows the Buddha is enlightened. He is wise and gleefully plump. Rubbing his belly will bring you good luck. No, I’m not talking about the Buddha that spawned an -ism, I’m talking about Buddha the chubby chihuahua, my four-legged companion for the past six years.

Aside from his occasional rage blackouts (I blame over-breeding), random, uncontrollable licking fits, and the tendency to pee a little out of excitement when his favorite people come to visit, he’s quite sagely. I feel it is my duty to share his wisdom with the rest of the world, and in so doing, I can only hope to preserve and support the fragile seedling that is our collective psyche. Buddha’s here to help.
