I am a dog. I like eating food, sleeping and writing doggie poetry. Did I mention that I like eating? I also like walking, but I don't like it when people tell me I have to wear a lead.
I don't like cats. Or double-glazing sales men.
My hero is Laika, the dog that was sent into space. She demonstrated that dogs are better than humans because they don't complain about being sent into orbit with no way of getting back, but sacrifice themselves for the sake of knowledge. She was also a Communist, of course.
I am just under twenty one (which is amazing, for a dog). Oh yeah, I like eating as well.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I believe in a superior race of beings who walk on four legs and bark. Humans will fail to discover them, as they will communicate with us, the canine world. I belive that they are, like the Earth dog, vastly more intelligent than humans, but also peace loving. I belive that they visited Earth many years ago and met with primitive humans who worshipped them as deities. However because of dyslexia, they are now worshipped as gods.
Humans should transmit a beacon for the higher life form to find. The practice of people like NASA sending music up is a good one. They just sent the wrong songs. They should have sent Poodle Rocking by Gorki's Zygotic Mynci, Damn Dog by the Manic Street Preachers and Dog Faced boy by Eels. On no account should Elvis Presley's Hound Dog be used, as the line 'You ain't no friend of mine' could be antagonistic and might induce the normally peace loving super beings to bite.
I also belive that there is an evil race of beings who would put humans into slavery (although I understand that you humans are much less intelligent than us dogs, I also believe that you should be treated with respect. Even if you do wear ridiculous clothes). These evil beings also have four legs. They make strange purring noises and have a look of malevolence. Luckily, we dogs can outwit them and would be glad to protect the earth from them.
