    What is your response? -Trigueros del Valle, in Northern Spain, declared animals Nonhuman Neighbors

    to “dignify the lives of dogs and cats, animals which have shared with man thousands and thousands of years and have been a great help to him.”  In addition, an island of Japan recently registered dolphins as citizens to protect them from illegal hunting.

    This is a great idea, and many places are now declaring animals have rights.  It's been too long in coming, and hopefully many more places will do the same in the futute.

      I do not like to see animals kicked, tied to a stake and starved, dropped by he side of the road,  etc. etc. I don't think they will ever vote, but they are living creatures with a purpose.

    Amazing, when I came to Spain, 30 years ago, animals were either for work or food, and domestic pets were disposable!

    27 years ago Bruno Lupia set up the Costa Animals Society, and I produced the magazine for it, at the time it was seen as madness to care for domestic animals, so this is progress.

    Now all I need is for my actual 'vecinos' (human neighbours) to recognise that when they visit their 'casa de campo' for a weekend fiesta, that playing loud (mostly non Spanish) music until 3.30am on a Saturday night, would 'dignify' my right to a weekends peace and tranquillity!

    Yes! Fist in the air! A little dance.

    I think that one day, we will be faced with our grievous and errant way of thinking. Poking into the dark recesses of my mind I come back to Kafka and wonder what will happen when we discover that the cockroaches were the good guys.

    Anything that is smarter than my most ignorant neighbor should be respected and honored alongside humans, not taken for food or sport.

      You make me smile with Kafka note! Some animals are better company than some humans. Everyone needs to not abuse anyone human or animal. Be kind to all.
