Well it seems the World Dog show is taking place right now. I have written about this show before – at least once:
The show happens every year. However- this year there was a fair bit of controversy about it as it is taking place in Shanghai. China is known for it’s custom in some areas of ummmm….using us canines as a delicacy. As a result of this practice, the British Kennel Club, the UKC, boycotted attendance at the event this year. And I think lots of other people boycotted the show as well…
I was curious to see the numbers in the entry. Here ‘s a link to the numbers. I didn’t add them up, but I’m thinking it doesn’t look like 20,000+ – which seems to be typical for this show. I don’t see any Picards or PONs entered…
I’ll just end my discussion of this topic right here. Talking about the topic of dog meat is kind of like watching a horror film to us canines. I’d rather think of chasing bunnies.
Speaking of which – those rabbits are very plentiful in our neighborhood right now. EVERY morning now, when my human opens the front door – at least one is sitting on the front lawn. Yesterday we had a repeat performance with Einstein as my human was getting ready to leave for work. You would have thought that my human learned her lesson after a few days of this. But what was WORSE – was the fact that she opened the door, he bolted out, I pulled like MAD on the leash – and she forgot to close the front door behind her. She realized when she was about 20 feet from the door – and I began to pee. A really LONG pee. She didn’t want to pull me – but was watching the door and PRAYING that the lazy Picard did not realize it was open. She KNEW it would be game over if he discovered it. I am NOT joking when I say that her heart was pounding in her chest. She waited until I stopped peeing and raced with me to the front door. Luckily Mr. Morning Laziness, was on the dog bed – dreaming of racing in a field somewhere. Little did he know that his dream could have become a reality. My human honestly said a prayer of thanks!
Well it’s hump day! And no rain in the forecast. Life is good.
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
