Man's Best Friend
I found my old childhood photo in my blog archives recently. It was taken at my grandfather's home in Thailand which is almost 2 acres big. He kept several dogs and 4 servants to manage the place. When intruders entered at night, the dogs would bark non stop to wake my late grandfather up. He would just pick up the rifle and shoot at the direction. The loud gunshot bang would send the robbers away! The dogs went back to sleep.
The photo of my brother, cousin and myself. Can you recognize me?
I was about 9 years old.
Today I have so much memories of my late father and all the dogs in Penang. I was a very small kid then and got chased by so many dogs. I got bitten by an Alsatian, Doberman, Dalmatian, Bull Dog, Shaggy Dog and so many pariah dogs! Each time I got bitten, I would go home crying to my father who would ask me to show him the dogs in the neighbourhood. He was worried and always took me to hospital for rabies injections!! My wife thinks I am still very crazy at times and I blamed these infected crazy dogs.
I still love all the dogs very much as they are fun and loyal for your attention. I also love cats as they are quiet and mind their own business always. I just do not wish to keep them as pets because I would cry many buckets when they die. Do the dogs bite you too??
