one of my biggest curiosities in life is, “how does it feel like being a dog for one day?”. see, i have 5 dogs back in the ph and they aren’t doing anything other than sleep, wait for food, eat, sleep, sit at the gate looking at the passersby and that’s pretty much it is. i mean aren’t they getting bored at all? unlike us human beings who despite having a lot of options to do with our every day life, still find some days b-o-r-i-n-g! sometimes, i feel that i’d rather be a dog in my next life so i don’t have to worry about anything and just do the ‘sleep-eat-sit’ cycle everyday.
but on the contrary, dogs are only confined within the four corners of a room (or a house) and they don’t go out as freely like us humans. we can go anywhere we like without someone stopping us. if dogs want to live a good life enjoying the perks of having a food and shelter, they have to be within someone’s care. otherwise, they will be roaming the streets like homeless beggars waiting for food crumbs falling from the sky.
this picture is taken during a dog show event in singapore. this dog is happily frolicking in the beach and playing with the other dogs too. the owner throws the bottle of water to the sea and the dog swims to fetch it. the dog never gets tired of doing it. i guess (s)he is too happy for that because this is the only day for escape 😉
