HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL
Let me start the New Year, by dedicating my first post to my purrfect siblings - Ginger and Pepper (aka The Spice in my Life).
Unfortunately, not all cats and dogs can get along with each other. Some cats and dogs do become best buddies, while some just tolerate each other, or they don't get along at all.
Many have said that the terrier group (i.e. ME the Minaiature English Bull Terrier), have an instinctual drive to chase and attack. You will not see this happening in our house. Ginger, Pepper and I do play, eat and sleep together.
For tolerance, Ginger and Pepper do tolerate my friends when they come over. In fact, they do mingle amongst us. BRAVO to them. Those who know my two Jack Russel friends, Jack and Joey. They are after all Ginger's godbrother.
Let's not forget Pepper, he is Rafv's play mate. They will chase and tease each other whole day.
And because of them, Herbie has overcome his fear of felines.
I want to thank my siblings for teaching me RESPECT and TOLERANCE. I love you both very much.
A little trivial about cats and dogs:
Where do you think the phrase – ‘Raining cats and dogs’ come from?
Cats and Dogs were assigned as companions to the ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses.
The cats and dogs in ancient Egyptian mythology are associated with the climate.
The cat was associated with rain, while dogs were associated with wind. A really heavy storm, which combined lashing strong winds and torrential down-pouring rain, indicated that both cats and dogs had a hand in the storm, i.e., it was raining cats and dogs!
The English version was; In the early 17th century London, cats and dogs often did their mice-hunting on the rooftops of buildings. It certainly does rain a lot in London, and the poor animals were sometimes caught there during a storm, to be washed from the rooftops, over the eaves, and to fall on the top of startled passersby.
We promise all our friends in Singapore and Malaysia, we have nothing to do with the recent whether.
All three of us in the family would like to wish all our friends
A HAPPY NEW YEAR.
May 2007 be PURRFECT (from Ginger and Pepper)
and for all who are investing their monies, may 2007 be a BULLish year (from me the BULL terrier)
