We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.
I love dogs. And when I say “love”, I mean the kind that is borderline obsessive. But, seriously, for a dog, “Man is his idea of what God should be“. The kind of loyalty and unconditional love these canines show towards their masters puts most human emotions to shame.
I can’t believe that there was time in my life when I considered not to get a dog (because one my exs hated animals). But, look at them;
Introducing Slurp; yeah S went out last week and got herself a St Bernard. Its only a few weeks old but look at the size of this St Bernard.Deep down both of us know he is gonna grow to be “cutely big”.
Apparently, he loves to eat and would eat like 6 times a day if allowed to. He also loves the winter and spends most of his time running around chasing rabbits and squirrels. Of course, I am really sad that I am not around to obedience train him. But seriously, I think I would just spoil him and would never be strict towards someone that looks like Slurp.
Well, I wish they allowed St Bernards in S’pore (currently “no”). At least, then when S drops by in Dec she can bring Slurp with her. Argh…. I feel like going out and getting myself my own Slurp.
