Happy Tails Day
A dog has earned the title of being ‘Man's Best Friend’ for over a century now and possesses a loyalty for their owner that is unwavering and immeasurable. My dogs are my true buddy, they accept me for what I am despite my imperfections, and they stay beside me through thick and thin. Being pack animals my dogs consider me the leader of their pack; therefore, they are always by our side no matter what the situation may be.
Dogs have been known to sacrifice their lives to save their owners….I can vouch for that….one day I will tell you that story as well. The unconditional love and companionship they provide to us, has resulted in them being bona fide members of this family.
"Happy Tails Day”... What a wonderful sound it has...And do you know that Australians celebrate 8th October as Happy Tails Day to celebrate our tailed friends.... our animal friends who make our lives better? Animals have always been an integral part our life at the farm and we have been fortunate enough to have many animals who are family to us, they are part of our lives and we have ended up loving them. So with sincerity, I can say that in our family it’s ‘Happy Tails Day’ every day.
Whether animals are house pets or farm animals, they are very important to us and we need them as much as they need us. People who are not animal lovers would never understand this bonding, and I would go further to say that it would be rather difficult to explain what joy an animal can bring to one’s life. For me, it is incomprehensible as to how people can ignore animals and take them for granted.
Have you ever noticed that even animals have fascinating characteristics, if we look closely, to a certain extent you will find in them traits which are almost human, both that we find disgusting and endearing ….
Even though we often reflect on how well animals understand what we say, we certainly seem to communicate with them on many an emotional level… and these are wide-ranging … curiosity, affection, concern, fear and anger. We seem to evoke the same in them as well.
All the cows and buffaloes ever went on a ‘no-milk’ strike,
And now how about taking a glance at our feathered friend, the chicken! Just imagine what will happen if the dainty creature resolves not to lay eggs…..No sunny side up…no pastries….no cakes..
What would happen if horses formed a ‘labour union’ and opted for ‘chakka jam’…… It would be amazing!
