can dogs appreciate beauty?

my first dog was a yellow lab, emma. very smart. very
patient. also a cautious dog. add all that up, and she would
neurotically avoid sewer gratings like the plague,
especially in winter.

she died a year or two after i went to college. my interest
in music was really taking off, and so of course i wrote a

quaxo incognito, you know, because i'm being vague, because
naming it "my dog died and i'm gutted" is a bit too on the

a few months later, my father described a scene. he and emma
were at some lake in vermont, and they were both just
staring out at the water and the sky. my father was resolute
that the dog appreciated the beauty of it all.

i found this photo from 2004, a year or two before that, and
i've always felt like the two two of them were having the
same moment right then.


taken jamaica state park in vermont, at which there is a
plaque on a boulder commemorating my grandma - my dad's ma -
for her pioneering in white-water rafting.

you cannot make this shit up.

Dog's have such a good sense of smell that, as one
documentary put it, they can smell time. Meaning the dog's
"owner" had a subtle fragrance specific to him and when he
left for work in the morning the concentration of his smell
in the house slowly dissipated, and the dog remembered at
what molecular level he usually returns so gets on the couch
to look out the window before he even drives up. And a dog
can smell the location of meat buried under a lake. My point
is that, given dog's accute sense of smell, the thing they
like to smell the most is other dog's buttholes. Think about
it. And yes I suspect they find this smell beautiful. Kind
of like an Asstickler or Assphuck Twin track to us.
Buttholes are the constituent elements of everything when
you really think about it.

i've always said -- if dogs invented language, they wouldn't
say "looks good to me." they would say, "smells good to me."
the fundamental roots of our language are tethered to our
focus on the visual; our metaphorical language extends
accordingly. i can only imagine what emma smelled throughout
all this, given what i saw.

that's sweet... it's hard to know what's in animals' heads,
though i've never been a dog person. you read about people
who can interpret their dog's facial expressions and such,
and i'm a bit sceptical of this, but there's no reason why
they shouldn't have a trace-species-whatever instinct to
love the great outdoors.

i mean, i always had cats growing up, and while they were
mostly indoor moggies cats have their territories spanning
tens of miles if given freedom to roam. pets are seeing,
hearing, smelling on a different level to us - they couldn't
tell a van gogh from a rothko but that doesn't mean they
don't appreciate beauty

You've always said that, even before you were born? Probably
the main thing emma was concentrated on smelling was all the
buttholes around her.. squirrel buttholes, bird cloaca
buttholes, your dad's butthole etc.
It's no coincidence that "cloaca" looks similar to "coca
cola". Did you know raspberry flavoring is made from beaver
Most fast food is made out of buttholes in some way or
another, which is why do'gs like to eat people food so much.

Song reminds me of close encounters of the 3rd kind at the
beginning. Maybe if aliens visit us, they won't be after our
oxygen or to attack etc. They'll just be alien dog like
creatures that came to earth to smell everyone's buttholes.

i think dogs are really beautiful, especially when they try
to make up the shit they done by looking at you as if they
were kids, especially female ones
