Holy Dog!

MSNBC has this story about a dog at a Zen Buddhist temple in Japan who prays with the monks. The dog's name is Conan which was the name not only of a famous Barbarian but also of my ma ape's first dog (a corgi). It doesn't seem like a very Zen name.

Wally, I suppose it says to us that Zen is possible for anyone, regardless of their name or breeding. A corgi named Conan? That is too cute. I miss the Corgi Brothers from my old neighbourhood, although admittedly, one of the brothers was a sista.

Wow! That is a really cool trick! I wonder if I could learn to pray like that. When I have a accident I run under the bed & pray that daddy doesn't find me!
Hugs & Snugs,

Wally, while we're on the topic of Buddhism... Did you see the smear job The Nation did on my homeboy Slavoj? While the critique of his statements about Tibet may be on target, their dismissal of In Defense of Lost Causes neglects to engage with any of his nuanced arguments. Perhaps you want to show your solidarity with the Big Z in this:
