PHILOSOPHICAL POO PONDERINGS | THE NIHILIST DOG

WHY THE NIHILIST DOG POOPS IN THE HOUSE

Now we know why the Existentialist Dog poops in the house, let's explore the deeper recesses of the soul of the Nihilist dog and uncover what may be at the root of their decision to poop in the house.

THE MEANING OF LIFE TO A NIHILIST DOG IS THERE IS NO MEANING

To the Nihilist dog life has virtually no purpose, truth, or reason. Life is literally pointless, this must be said with a SIGH, preferably a deep sigh followed by gazing forlornly off into the distance.

Some breeds of dogs seem more prone to Nihilism that others. Many Pugs hold this philosophical path (or anti-philosophical) near and dear. As do many of the hounds. What personifies pessimism more than the sight of a Basset Hound? Or a Beagle? Or a Bloodhound? 

Pessimism, a woebegone demeanor and an Eyore-ish view of life are also give-aways to a canine Nihilistic leaning. I feel like I must sigh as I type. Woe, woe, woe are we all...

WHY ARE THERE BEINGS AT ALL INSTEAD OF NOTHING ? -Heidegger

The other side of the Nihilist canine coin is one who is a bit immoral. You know the dog. He just does not care that he isn't supposed to steal food off the counter or eat kitty litter caviar or hump your boyfriend's leg. He does what he wants to, because life has no meaning, so why bother being good!

If your dog leans toward a bit of Nihilism he may even veer between the two - sad one day and devil-may-care the next. Not that he believes in the devil, of course.

Your Nihilistic Dog poops in the house because if NOTHING has meaning, then there is no reason to bother going outside to poop.
