So, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Thanks, David for the smiles and the calming breaths and the Stevie Wonder video in the comments: Heaven Help Us All.

While it’s been said that
an old dog cannot learn new tricks,
I say, “has anyone actually asked?”

Turns out that, when queried
14 year old Fang was quite articulate.
Given the right inspirational conditions
he was willing & able
to cultivate self empathy
then, do best for himself,
while considering what’s best for others.
Going from full-time meat shredding savage beast
to part-time mild-mannered plant-based eater.
A for artichoke, B for broccoli, C for carrot
Loving eyes & wagging tail convey
his grasp of beautiful endowments found
in all things consumed via mouth,
nose, eyes, ears & touch.
He now wishes to eat in such a way
that his compassion is kept alive
by reducing suffering of other living beings.
Well, if such an old dog can learn beneficial new tricks,
envision what each of us can do
