Four legs, not two, please.
Why would I want two legs like a human, when I have four?
Four legs keep me steady on the ground. Just think, if I am unlucky enough to lose one leg I still have three left!
Why do I need to see every colour in the universe, like humans can, when I see the colours that really matter to me, the colours of my natural environment, yellows and bluish greens. I can also see things moving in my environment at dusk and at dawn much better than any human can.
And when we are discussing how well I can see, did you know that I can see things in my world a split second before any human eye can see them. This means that I am actually ahead of my human (even though the human doesn’t know this and I would prefer to keep this to myself).
Being a dog is great, don’t let anyone tell you anything else. If the human forgets to feed me, I can eat whatever I like out of the garbage. My taste buds actually prefer foods that are a little overripe. I’m not fussy like the humans are in this respect.
Here’s another bit. Did you know that I can smell what is going to happen, before it actually does? When a human smells a rose, that is what the human smells. However, I can smell by the scent of the rose’s petals, that it opened the petals several days ago, and I can smell that a bee will be landing on the rose petal in the next few hours, and that it will probably rain in another day.
When a human comes near me, I can smell before I see them, whether it is female or male and I can also smell whether it is angry or frightened, or happy like me.
Oh, and another thing. I don’t need blankets to keep me warm and a lumpy bed is ok too. Actually I don’t need a bed at all, but the humans give me one so that they know where I am sleeping.
I don’t need knives and forks and clean plates and a chair to sit on when I eat. I can eat anywhere.
Money doesn’t worry me either.Nor does a daily bath or shower. In fact, I prefer to keep my own aroma so that other of my dog friends know where I am at any time.
Ok, so what’s the catch? Well, the only negative I can think of is when the sky shakes before and during a storm. This makes me very worried and hurts my ears.
Fleas are a bit of an issue too, but usually the humans will look after these pests for me so that they don’t get fleas inside their house.
But apart from that, being a dog is just fine by me. Lots of pats on the head and the occasional treat will keep me very very happy indeed. So, why would I want to have only two legs and all the other problems that humans have?
Four legs, not two are perfect for me.
