Bill,

You mean a dog feels pain, but doesn't suffer. You have to cram 'Doggie 
Language Made Simple' and argue with a dog.

      Anthony,



I’m sure you’ve seen a dog with only three legs.  It doesn’t suffer, at least 
doesn’t suffer from the self-pity that most humans would have.



The self-pity (or envy) is what the Buddhist ‘suffering’ refers to – not 
physical discomforts such as pain, hunger, etc…



…Bill!

ED,

 

Your picture says, 'if you don't ask, you don't suffer'. That is nonsense. 
Suffering exists whether you ask or not. The difference is whether you know it.

Anthony,

Expressed simply and with greater inclusivenes, all living things (humans, 
animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, etc.)  seek their own self-interest, namely, 
to eat, survive and reproduce.
