The best pet

It’s not difficult to choose our best pet: the dog. Some people will say it’s the cat, even someone the horse but even them, they love usually dogs. It’s really frequent that a person who has a horse in its farm, it has also a dog (or two) and several cats, because cats and dogs don’t fight if they have grown up together.

A horse is fantastic but it has some disadvantages to be the best of the pets: it cannot live at home, it cannot get on your bed, it cannot play with your children… it is too big.

A cat is fantastic too, and some people prefer a cat but I think they are more independents and even loyal, they tend to be less affectionate.

Who has had a dog, he has had the best friend, the best family member and feelings with a dog are unforgettable: a dog is always willing to give its life for its owner (friend).

The worst? Well, nowadays people have strange pets: parrots (bad character), iguanas (silly animal), frogs (the ignore you), panthers (they tear the curtains when they smooth their nails)… and so on. Being a student, I lived in an apartment with other friends, we adopt a rabbit, it was not interaction at all. I knew a Canadian man who has a bear, it was a fantastic pet, tender a friendly, but he spent a fortune to feed it. Can you pay such a fortune? Then get a bear.

Anyway, the worst experience I’ve heard it was with a snake: an anaconda. Yes who can be so crazy as to have an anaconda at home? Lady Mary. She adopted a baby snake and she was happy. Every night the baby anaconda went on her bed and slept quietly at her side, stretched and quiet, a good partner. One day, she told the vet her experience and the vet got worried: ‘No, my lady, no,’ he said, ‘your anaconda is measuring your height every night, it just wants to know when it will be big enough as to kill you.’

Then, don’t be silly. The instinct is the instinct and a snake will never be a good pet. Buy a dog and be happy.

Fantastic quotes about animals:

I have been studying the traits and dispositions of the “lower animals” (so called) and contrasting them with the traits and dispositions of man. I find the result humiliating to me. Mark Twain, Letters from the Earth.

If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce.

To insult someone we call him “bestial.” For deliberate cruelty and nature, “human” might be the greater insult. Isaac Asimov, Isaac Asimov’s Book of Science and Nature Quotations.

Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet. Colette.
