In the travels which partner Frank and I have ventured so far, we noticed that I seem to be a dog magnet. Yeah! When dogs see me, they come to me and beg for attention and a good old pat on the head.
How can a cat lover like me be a dog magnet?
Let me show you some of the photos we've collected so far.....
Let's start of with Utoy - The family dog of Michelle's family who is Frank's bestestfriend! Her whole family (even Frank) was convinced that Utoy kinda sees me as "his girl!" LOL Our stay that time at the Kampo Berde was very memorable due to Utoy's unusual behavior while I was around!
Remember our El Nido trip in Apulit Island?
By the time we arrived at our 1st island hopping destination at the Isla Blanca, this cuteee just walked straight to us and kissed me over and over! I never felt scared the whole time, I didn't give out any vibrations of fear. Animals are very very sensitive to these things (vibrations). I felt it wanted much affection. Of course I had to give back the love so I gave my new furry friend huge hugs! It was really sweet!
|it felt really odd but I loved it nonetheless|
It didn't leave our side actually. It seemed to be very comfortable with us. The woman with me in the photo was also amazed on how the dog liked me a lot....
The next day when we had a side trip at the Flower Island, we also met 2 gentle giants..
|I believe her name is Sophie!|
|here's another gentle dog but I forgot his name... he followed us as we were touring the island|
In our recent trip to Baguio,
|The resident pooch of my friend Bahaghari was very behave and somehow trained!|
|our National Artist's (Bencab) own dog also greeted and stayed beside us while we were dining.|
And Butternut from the Vieux Chalet
|The Hassig's family dog Butternut even wagged his tail when I touched him!|
I had this thought way way back in high school.....
Funny how people devote their lives and time to find life on another planet...to know what it's like to be out of earth and find aliens to communicate to ..... instead of understanding these creatures which we share the planet with. We look so far and above that we forget where we stand. We have been so busy that we have forgotten on how to be human and humane. Funny how our technology has been advancing to provide people with faster communication yet we grow further apart day by day. Sadly, many people are even cruel to them =(
These furry encounters are quite special to me. I feel very much appreciated and grateful when they happen. Animals sure know how to show love and appreciation...for the simple reason that their hearts are purer and have nothing to hide. They are way better in expressing their feelings as compared with people.
Just because they cannot talk doesn't mean they have no feelings. They have a very special kind of language which only a handful of people know. It is a language without using words but more on feelings. A language from the very thing which we are made of but forget to recognize. And like all languages, we have to learn it and apply it every single day to get used to it....... and the language is called ..........
.... and until we decide to really learn and use it, we will never really figure things out!
