A Feel Good Story with a Moral

Long time ago in a small, far away village, there was place known as the House Of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit.
When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his.
He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the House, he thought to himself: "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often."
In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself: "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again."
All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?

Now, was that too saccharine for you?

I will answer after my insulin shot.
Actually, it's a cute story; I rather like the imagery of 1000 happy doggies. Reminds me of the dog I had growing up.

Now is the time to listen to the song "Who lets the dogz out" by the Baha Gang
One more post by me and the mystery will be revealed.

This story is just so true.
When I'm driving on the highway and somebody cuts in front of me at the last second to avoid the line, if I smile and wave they smile and wave, If I show them the finger, they show me the finger.

I don't know about mirrors, but Disney paid someone some bucks to remove all the spots from the Oddball puppy in all the scenes.
Hmm, I wonder if there were ever any albino dalmations? Or any other breed of dog...I have never seen a white dog with red eyes.
