MY Love For Dogs
My love for dogs.
I am one who loves animals a lot. I find them to be a very great companion. My dog's name is Timmy and I have had him for almost three years now. My vet nary doctor say’s Timmy is a German Shepard (breed).
In my village “Issele Azagba”, it is an abomination to own a dog. Dogs are tagged as evil. It is believed that evil doers use this animal (precisely dogs) to perpetuate evil. It has been the village’s belief before I was born.
My parents and I don’t live in my village. We live in the urban part of Nigeria called Lagos. Lagos in Nigeria is like New York in America where anything legal is allowed. On a Saturday morning, my parents decided to take the whole family out to an eatery. I think someone in my family was celebrating something but I can’t remember what.
On our way, there was a very serious traffic congestion. Looking out of my window was this guy holding a puppy and stretching it out to motorist so they could buy it. The sun was so hot and the guy was holding this puppy so roughly, From the look in the puppy’s face you could feel he was in pains. I couldn’t stand it any more; I reached out for the dog and paid the man N500 (in Nigerian currency). The guy took the money happily and dashed off.
My parent’s where astonished. I have forgotten that it was a taboo to own a dog or puppy. I did what I did out of pity for that animal. Since we couldn’t return it because the seller had left and also we weren’t in my village, my parents finally approved that I keep the puppy.
They watched him grow from a puppy to a big dog in a year! My parent actually loves Timmy. It is so friendly to us although very aggressive to strangers so we chain him when we have visitors around.
He has attacked and biting a couple of our unsuspecting visitors. I just hope I don’t regret buying it. Anyway I can’t deny that I don’t love him still, even with every thing he has done. My dog is a very cute dog
Another thing I have noticed is the way my dog attacks hens, cats and even lizards and kills them when ever they wonder into my compound. When hens enter the compound it kills and eats them raw then after 5-10 minutes it throws up everything it has eaten. I told my vet nary doctor about it and he said it was a normal thing for German Sheppard dogs, my vet nary doctor told me that when ever he eats any raw animal again that I should give him fresh oil to lick and he will be fine.
There is something else, when I take him out to mix with female dogs cause my dogs is a male dog, he is always unfriendly and he scares them away and sometimes he gets into a fights with other male dogs. When ever he is with me or any member of my family he knows he starts ejaculating on our legs but with other dogs he won’t even play with them. Awful!!!
Since I bought Timmy, for one reason or the other we have not gone to the village for the Christmas celebration. But i know when the time comes for the whole family to travel to the village, we will find a home where there will be plenty of dogs to keep him till we return back.
