Today I noticed the search phrase “what does dog is my copilot mean” was used to reach my site. Since I titled my site “Dog Is My Copilot” I’m not surprised the person searching for an answer to that question clicked through to my site. But they were probably unsatisfied since I don’t explain what the term means (even to me). So I’m going to do so in this article.
I’m an atheist. So on one level it is an obvious satirical poke at the “God is my copilot” phrase used by so many Christians. If God is your copilot I don’t want to be anywhere near you when you’re driving. God has terrible aim and judgement for any supposedly omniscient omnipotent being. Please, do not let God tell you when to make a left turn.
On a more serious note the phrase means that canines are my non-human companions. The dogs in my life give me a reason to go for a walk around my neighborhood. I can count on my dogs to accept and reciprocate affection. They help me notice things that are important. Like that squirrel which is only two meters away and is probably very tasty. Cats (felids) are okay but I’ll always be a dog person.
