I am a Dog

I am a DOG. I am not a toy. I’m not a doll. I am not a clown. I’m NOT human and I’m not vain.

I value my comfort and freedom. I walk happiest on four feet. I hate it when I cannot wag my tail for someone I love, when I cannot bound up happily to lick his face, when that darned ‘dress’ threatens to trip me up each time I run. I do not feel cute. I feel hampered and uncomfortable and ridiculously silly.

Save the vanities for you and your kind. Leave me a cheerful scruffy frump.

Just before the day ends here's my 100 word drabble for day 3 of the Marathon Bloggers Drabble week. Today's topic is If I were an animal.

  2. Totally agree with you, Tulika. I cringe each time I see 'salons' for dogs.

    1. The internet is also full of dog-dress up games and costumes for dogs. It's crazy.

  3. I couldn't agree more! Let dogs be dogs. This could even be considered a mild form of abuse and I don't condone it at all. Good post!

  4. Agree with you. Poor creatures, I am sure they'd be feeling so embarrassed and annoyed and also it would be so uncomfortable for them!

  5. I agree completely. They are beautiful just the way they are, why try to humanize them. Well written

  11. The poor dogs, if only they could speak, I agree it is wrong to try and dress them up. If people understood. Good one, Tulika!

    1. Glad you agree inderpreet. Somehow loving them translates into humanising them.

  12. I agree with you wholeheartedly. People dress up their dogs and parade them or post their pics for their own delight but the animals suffer silently. Great post.
