The site that keeps on giving

The more time you give to Beedogs, the more you'll get from it...

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with a beedog. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the beedog. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the beedog about it: "Beedog, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

And the beedog said: It is because I cannot be trusted off-leash, and I ran away.”

I liked the old version of that story better.

But the old version didn't have any beedogs in it.

This beedog parable truly is an inspirational story. I just hope that Christians don't cotton on to it and try and subvert the true message: Don't pay any attention to dreams.

Toque understands the true profundity of the beedogs.

I can't be sure, but is Toque knitting beedog suits in that portrait?

Toque said...

No, I'm playing the guitar.

Verily the Beedog is all wise and all knowing. How can I, a mere mortal, learn to walk in the path of the Beedog?

That's what I liked about it.

I wanted to find this page so I used Google. It said

"Did you mean: think of england beer dog?"

Apparently Google is keeping a very close eye on you.
