I thought it was time for an update on my dog walking adventures. I usually have a favourite, and last Sunday it was Dodge. He was reclining in his cage with his front legs hanging out, looking very relaxed, watching us out the corner of his eye. And he proved to be very dignified on a lead, and a lovely placid dog. And look at that split ear. I don't want to know how that happened.
Edit: I have been informed that Dodge has found a new home on a farm. Lucky boy.
Esmerelda lived with us for a couple of months, then one night she ripped through a window screen, and disappeared into the night, never to be seen again.
My cousin found Puss as a kitten, stuck in the wall cavity of her shed at Gunns Plains. She convinced me to keep her. She wasn't an affectionate cat when she came here, but became more so as time went on.
"Thousands - millions and billions - of animals are killed for food. That is very sad. We human beings can live without meat, especially in our modern world. We have a great variety of vegetables and other supplementary food, so we have the capacity and responsibility to save billions of lives." - His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
