Fearless

"Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself makes you fearless." - Lao Tzu

When the sun’s rays beam down from the sky and warmth fills the air, Porgy is allowed outside to hang with us dogs (Silvius and I). Usually Porgy will perch on the back deck, because that is my main haunt. Sometimes, though, I like to hang out in the yard, just to check out what is going on or to sleep in the coolness of the grass. When I am out in the yard Porgy has no reason to remain on the deck, so he will either fly up to a tree and munch on bark or he will climb down the deck steps and walk into the red shed. I don't know what he is looking for in the red shed, but I have told him to stay out because of the snakes that slither nearby and other bird-eating creatures. That does not deter Porgy, however, because Porgy is fearless (like Jet Li in his amazing movie “Fearless” and like Tony Jaa in his excellent movies, "Ong Bak" and "The Protector").

Porgy does not back down to bullies, a bit like this cool dog, Louk, also known as The Greek Protest Dog and Riot Dog. Sadly, Louk is homeless but he does have many humans who care for him and protect him, and he returns the favor by helping them defend their liberty. Louk puts his life on the line fighting the good fight. In a way Porgy also puts his life on the line because he will not let a possible predator keep him from living life. Porgy is skilled in the art of self defense, so if any animal tries to mess with Porgy then said animal is on the receiving end of Parrot Claw Fist or Iron Beak.

Porgy isn't the only one with cool martial art moves. I, myself, have been creating my own martial art, although I have yet to name it. Perhaps Qi Suka Do or Suka Ki Do. Or Kung Suka. It is very hard work mastering a martial art but I can already notice my posture improving and my tail becoming stronger. Before you know it, I will be able to do the One Paw Standing exercise! It will take many moons before I achieve the level of Black Collar, but in the meantime, if those Ninja Cats or Kung Fu Bunnies try any funny stuff I can at least surprise attack with Hungry Tiger Paw Form or Fire Dragon Tail Form. Just call me Sifu Suka. I'm just sayin'...

Suka, you and Porgy are forces to contend with! Master your power, use it wisely, and never forget that the most powerful art is the art of compassionate love. Keeping practicing the one paw stance...

LOL! I think you just came up with a new martial arts move. "Iron Beak"

Try that, Jet Li! :)

Keiko (from Kitty Trio) said...

Wow Porgy's iron beak would hurt a lot. He's so tough!
Suka, we'd love to see some of your moves. We think you'd be so cool doing your matial arts!

WOW! Between you & Porgy are quite a team. Porgy is a handsome guy & it is good that he stays close to home. Hope to see a pic of the one paw stance. We like what White Dog said too. Thanks for visiting us.

Suka Ki Do has a very nice ring to it. Will we see martial arts schools popping up all over the country? :)

Woof Suka,

We think Kung Suka is a good name for one who battles Evil Cat Ninjas. Mom really loved the Porgy photos. Hope all is well with you and K.

Woof Suka,

We don't have any birds that are our friends. Mom says it's because we try to eat them. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Suka and all,
We thought about you tonight because we helped dad make BIG juicy bison burgers on the grill (with green chile cheddar cheese) for dinner tonight...we just KNOW you would have REALLY enjoyed the meal AND even helped with clean up after. K would have enjoyed the grilled veggie mix of eggplant, asparagus, mushrooms, onions, and zucchini.
