What do you love about your pets?
Have you ever woken up in the very early hours of the morning, with a few thoughts bouncing through your mind. Thoughts that don’t let you fall asleep again. Thoughts that you run through your mind, wording and re-wording for a blog post or even a website post.
This morning I had this moment and the bed was just much too comfortable and warm to get up to set up the laptop and get stuck in.
So my thought this morning was that I have a website for Just Pets Accessories and I have a huge passion for all things pet. From caring for them to what is best for them and for all the accessories one can get for our pets. Now when I think of how my children and I see animals and how my partner see animals are very different point of views. Maybe it has a lot to do with him growing up as a child on a farm with many animals to feed and clean up after.
This is what got me thinking about the other people around the world and the next four questions came to mind:
How many people out there in the world have a passion for their animals that treat them like a child of their own?
How many just accept the animals that are part of their lives as they have no other choice and simply don’t love them as deeply.
How many pets are treated better than children do?
How many out there don’t want anything to do with owning any animals that even birds chirping early in the morning gets them in a bad mood?
I have so many stories I could tell you about the funny and strange things my animals do or used to do. One that comes to mind that used to entertain many visitors was my dog Bobby. He had the strangest ways of doing things. He was a miniature Doberman. When we got him, I was a young teenager. He started out being my dog, but animals have a will of their own and he chose my mother as his person.
That being said, I love any animal even if it isn't mine. I used to train all the animals after school just for fun. They were my friends and I trusted them more than most people. Bobby was tiny when we got him, he used to curl up in my hands. He used to have the annoying habit of stealing coffee out of your mug when you were not looking. No matter what we tried to stop him getting coffee in, we failed.
As he got older he grew very close to my mother, and used to be very protective over her, no one dared touching her when he was around, not even me. He was a very smart dog. My mother used to get a mug of coffee put next to her bed every morning. Bobby would simply crawl out from under the covers, climb onto the bed side cupboard and drink her coffee. The only thing we could do was to make a mini flask of coffee and place it next to the bed. His reaction that morning was priceless.
The funny thing was he loved his coffee so much you could move the mug slowly around on the floor while he was drinking and he would follow the mug with his entire head stuck inside the mug. The other thing I trained him to do was to sit up right on his hind legs and give his paw before getting his treat, so every time we were in the kitchen cooking he would sit on his hind legs as if he was a soldier. With a bark now and then as if to say " hey, I am still here, I also want some!". He was such a delight to have in my life. I could go on and on and talk about all my pets, even the animals I rescued.
I would love it if you can share your views on the topic and if you have any strange, funny and weird things your pets may get up to feel free to share that to. I have always loved watching videos of all the funny things animals do. My children and I love watching funny animal videos together. It makes us laugh. So if it does that for me it may make other people laugh to. This could be a great way to cheer up someone’s day.
All the best,
