Dogs Vs Ghosts (狗與鬼)
I am a dog lover; almost
everyone who is closed to me knows this.
It is a pity that I couldn’t
keep any dogs as I am now staying in an apartment added to that these days I
travel frequently and has got no time to take care of my fluffy buddies. I did
kept dogs when I was staying in Kuala Kangsar some dog gone years ago.
I used to have two dogs:
one German shepherd and a Chiwawa dog. Both of the dogs were given to me by my
aunt before she moved to New Zealand. At times I did wonder why was it that my
Chiwawa dropped its tail and ears suddenly and then hurriedly ran off from a corner
of my house while whining until one afternoon…
There goes again for the
Chiwawa whining and running out from my bedroom. I thought it was bullied by
the German shepherd but on second look, I saw a shadowy figure pursuing the poor
Chiwawa. To tell you honestly, it was just the shadow of upper half of a man
without the lower half! My impression was that the shadow moved very swiftly
and my Chiwawa was almost breathless trying to escape the pursuer.
There were nothing that I
could do (at that time) while I did understand that it was a playful spirits
making fun of the poor little Chiwawa. My only concern then was that the
Chiwawa may kick its bucket if I let the chase continue. So I immediately call
the German shepherd into the house as it is known of its boldness.
Well, as I have expected
that the German shepherd didn’t disappoint me. It barked fierce fully at the
shadow and then chased after the shadow. Seemed that the shadowy friend didn’t
dare to confront my German shepherd and started to scramble. Within seconds the
shadow was no way to be sighted.
After the incident, I tried
to keep the German shepherd and the Chiwawa together for protection. It seems
to me that the dogs and ghosts are alike: some are bold, some are timid, some
are playful and etc.
Oh, another reason I don’t
keep dogs now a days is that the life span of a dog is too short. Once I got a
year old puppy and it took me about 2 years to train it. And after 3 years or
so, the dog is considered old. Normally I can only keep a dog for 7 or 8 years
and it would say ‘sayonara’ to me. It is pretty sad to see a good dog go as I
just can’t forget the memories of staying with them.
