A lot of things can cross the mind at this hour of the night ^.^ I probably should be in bed now.. but since its a Saturday already, i guess i should just leave my thoughts here. And i just had a big cuppa coffee at the market for dinner :)

Dommy's a snooooooooooozing away beside me. He's such a peaceful sight. I love taking pics of him a snoozing away. I can take pictures of the same subject over and over again but its always gives a different feel.

Why do some of us love our dogs so much? We probably love them more than our family or friends. It just happens i guess. Quite unexplainable.

Some people were commenting about this girl from their office. They say that she's obsessed with her dog. She's sad when her dog is sick. She can't eat or sleep well when her dog was hospitalised. She spent most of her time with her dog when she's not working. She can rush home during lunchtime just to feed her dog when there's no one at home.

But i don't consider that an obsession. She's just taking care of the friend that loves her most. She always felt alone i guess. Somehow her dog made her felt accepted. She is loved very much by her dog. She tails her everywhere like a shadow.

Over here in my country... people rear dogs mostly to guard their homes. Dogs are sometimes tied up their whole lives at the porch. They become the furry alarms. The dogs bark at whatever they sense that are suspicious outside the gate. In another country, it would probably be dog abuse. They don't love their dogs. They just want them to send out a big BOO! to the suspicious characters.

But mindsets are changing. People are being educated about dogcare and humane actions. You can't change the whole world overnight. But a little goes a long way.

A few weeks back, one of my colleague's nephew took his own life. He was just 17. He probably felt alone. Maybe he couldn't cope with his studies. But no one noticed that he was alone. No one saw that he was sad. No one knew he was going to end his life. Its always just a split second decision.

Everyone wants to feel accepted in a way. Most people just want to be loved.

It got me thinking about a lot of things. I stopped blogging too. I felt sad inside. At 17, he is still very much a child. This is the worst thing that could happen to any parent. You just wonder where you went wrong.

It did freaked me out a lot. I have a 17 year old here with me. Sometimes i don't know what goes on in his head. I try to spend more time talking to him. I just tell him.. be happy. That's what life is all about. Just be happy.

You may have the fanciest car or the most expensive bag in the whole world, its not permanent. You may acquire a lot of things in your life, but that's not permanent too. Love is however... constant.

Well... this curly below me sure knows how to be happy. He can sit by me the whole day... and when i give him a glance, he'll jump up in glee. How not to love him more.

Have a great weekend folks. Goodnight to all of you. The caffeine is finally weaning off me -.-

One of my employees recently lost a family member to suicide, Beyond tragic. We all need to be reminded to take nothing for granted...

Hi Anny!

I think it's only natural that we love our pets...they are living beings and put their trust in us, which I consider a great honour.
I love watching animals when they're asleep. There is that element of innocence which is so precious.

It is terrible when young people decide their life isn't worth living. Communication is the key. If we don't talk, then we'll never know what is going on inside another person's mind.

Coffee for dinner? Haha. I wouldn't be able to sleep at all!!!

have a good rest of the weekend,

Duni

Woof! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We are sorry about your colleague's nephew ... what a young age. YES! LOVE is constant and the LOVE that I (DOG) brings to ones life is such unconditional which makes it very special. Your post inspired my mom to write an article ... maybe she'll share it with fellow bloggers. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Anny said...

hi Nancy & Ginger... thanks for dropping by our site :) and a welcome to you.

Dommy is a rescue too. We are his third home.. 2nd being the halfway/boarding house. But as long as i am alive and kicking.. this will be his forever home.
He is 7 now.. we got him when he was 4 :)

Anny said...

Hi Nigel... thanks for coming by and dropping a line. Welcome to our side. Love your site.

When a life is lost.. it is too late to regret. I agree with you. We all need to be reminded.

Anny said...

Hi there Duni :)

When animals sleep.. they are somehow like lil babies/kids. Sweet innocence.

Yes..it is a terrible thing when young people resort to taking their lives. Its the trying years. Peer pressure and all. They must know that they have someone to talk to when they need help.

Not exactly coffee for dinner. Its coffee with dinner.. and i was wideeeeeeeeee awake for a long time.. hahahhahaa.. usually i don't do coffee at night.

You have a great weekend too and take good care of yourself Duni.

A doggie's love is always unconditional which makes them the most special. They are put on earth to teach us about unconditional love which is hard to find among humans. And only a dog can show you how.

Lotta hugs to you Sugar.

Nessa said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your colleague's nephew. My condolences to the family.

It's a great loss when young people decide to end their lives. Like the standard 6 girl who ended her life because her PMR results were not as expected... and so many more with similar stories.

Its been almost a month Ness... but thanks for the condolences to the family.

It is education gone wrong in this country when kids take their own life when they don't do well in exams. But its also sad when they have no one to turn to. Too much pressure to perform.
