buddha the dog

Buddha recently had surgery to remove a giant tumor from his right rear leg. Left alone the growth would have eventually interfered with his walking not to mention he wouldn’t have been running. I was surprised to see that his skin was spotted just like his fur. In these shots he looks a bit like a medical chart where the body is in layers. He is doing nicely. Running but his activity is still limited. He is a good boy.

Story has it that the Buddha, embodied as a hare, threw himself in a sacrificial fire to the god Indra. He was rewarded with eternal life as the moon. There is also this little creature munching wild flowers with one eye toward predators. Here on the mountain it is parched in the summer. However there are lots of spots in the shade where these delicate wild flowers grow sparsely. Such an anomaly. It is so sweet to find these flowers blooming on a hot and dry summer day.

I have a dog named Buddha. It seems to me as though he looks quite like a bear. He has a very expressive face and he is a stealthy fellow. Many years ago when he was disappointed with the way things were going he decided to chew up a few things. It wasn’t the all out destruction of puppies cutting teeth or boredom. In fact he usually never chewed anything. He was, however,  a casual muncher at times. The problem was the arrival of the second dog….Maus. There was one particular little book that was always on a table in the living room. He took it off the table and chewed ever so delicately around the edges. Upon discovery he was reprimanded….”NO CHEWING BOOKS.” Right then and there the book was returned to the shelf. He watched the placement out of the corner of his eye. Next day he was chewing on the same book. He had taken it off the shelf. He has done this since many times. He watches out of the corner of his eye to make sure I am not looking at him before he does something that he is not allowed like disappearing into the woods. The expression that this bear is wearing is exactly like Buddha the dog.

Life is so tender.  I was inspired by my dog Buddha to paint this. We were out walking and a little way out on the hill I saw him looking into the distance. He seemed to be contemplating life. I think that thought is reserved for the human mind and the dog just lives.

This is my blue and red merle cattledog named ‘Buddha.’  I found him sleeping on our deck in the snow next to my statue of the Buddha. I snapped a few photos and then painted this. My dog has a very gentle nature. He is also very smart and quite devious. He is my Buddha and much loved.
