And They Called It Puppy Love ...

This article brought a smile to my face.


Quote:
Last week, Klongsanun was participating in a local marathon when something caught her eye. There, about 7 miles into the 26-mile run, she spotted a tiny puppy on the roadside with no owner or mother in sight.


Rather than continue on her way and leave the little dog to face the world alone, Klongsanun decided to briefly put the race on hold. She stopped — and scooped the helpless puppy into her arms.
But then she did so much more.

Watching the video, that's the most still, non-squirming puppy I've ever seen .

Okay. Cute, but how do we know that she didn’t just run off with someone’s puppy?

Nice video but in some South Asian countries that could be used as a bar-b-que mid time snack in some rural areas. On another note, had grilled horsemeat in Sicily which was actually quite tasty.

I'm taking the article's word. Giving them the benefit of the doubt .

Of course, articles can be deceiving like that Gofundme scam about that homeless guy and that couple. So, I do get where you are coming from.

I understand that horses and donkeys are eaten in Europe, but they are not raised as food. When the animals get old, they are put down, and instead of letting the carcasses go to waste, well, they are put to better use.

Sounds OK to me. I have not been to Sicily, but knew that they have donkey stew in Northern Italy. When I was there, did not have time to inquire about for a restaurant serving this.

I wonder along with Jerry1 about that. I frequently see people posting that they picked up this poor skinny dog out in the country somewhere that they never go. I can just see the poor kids out searching for their dog. When we were kids dogs roamed around anywhere they wanted to. No leash laws back then and many "country" areas don't have leash laws either.

In my younger days traveling in South America namely Bolivia, there were loose dogs everywhere in the city. They usually become a Velcro dog with you if you were eating something walking in the city. One amazing thing I saw is when the traffic cop was directing people to walk through a busy intersection and with his whistle the people would stop and go across the intersection by his command. And the loose dogs would do they same.

My cousin and her DH are longtime residents in Antigua, Guatemala. I was down to visit once and noticed that their dog had the run of the town, just like a cat would have up here in years gone by (hopefully). I was downtown one day and saw the dog walking on the street, unaccompanied. I called him by name, and he looked at me, turned and walked the other way.

Horse meat is pretty common in Italy.

Horse meat is also available in Canada.
Many years ago I had some.

It's illegal here USA to process horses for meat, without a very special permit. I believe I read there is one place in the USA that does and they export all the meat.

LOL that's funny. Reminds me of the old song about "The pig got up and slowly walked away."

Lilly

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

One day she passed him by
A twinkle in her eye
He said " she was meant for me!"
But when he turned around
He lost what he had found
Oh where can his Lilly be?

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

He searched the city streets
He tempted her with treats

But nobody stopped to taste them
Some are in his pocket
Some are in a locket
He couldn't bring himself to waste them

Ever since she's gone
Some days he can't go on
She ruined him for another
Pressed up against the glass
He prays that she will pass
Now he's living with his mother

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Stay, stay, stay, stay

There's many older free horses available. They're generally in poor shape and in need of euthanasia. It's really very sad. Once again the pendulum swung way too far.
