Today is the Chinese moon festival, however my mum had paid me a visit last weekend so I got to spend the time by myself.
today on my way to gym, I randomly passed a street with about 5 to 6 pet shops in a roll. I stopped and checked inside out of curiosity. if you know me for few months already you probably know that I wanted a shiba inu, and I saw shiba inu pups in the pet shop. I thought they are cute but I my situation right now is no way for me to keep a dog and I know it's better to get a dog from the right breeder, the one that allows you to see the pup's parents or at least a trace of its background and how it has been treated and it's environment since birth.
seeing me staring at a young shiba innu sleeping in its cage, the shop keeper asked me if I want to see it awake, before I was going to say it's ok, I don't want to interrupt him sleeping. the guy knocked the cage with something hard and the noise startled the pup and wakes it up. I didn't like the way it is and decided to check up the other dogs and he might thinks that i'm not interested in that shiba inu and knocked other two cages with shiba inu in them and wakes them up too. he pointed a cage to me and says he would sell that shiba inu cheaper because it has longer nose than the 'usual' cuter looking shiba inu. I bent down to have a better look of the pup with longer nose, It is older than the others, probably because no one wants to buy him and his nails are so long that it doesn't seen to be taking care of for a while. about 4 people came to the shop and they are also looking for a shiba innu pup, they told the guy their kid wants a shiba inu, the guy puts two shiba inu pups into a playpen so they can have a better look of the pups, what I found strange is that as soon as the two pups met each others in the playpen they starts fighting, one pup is trying to bite another pups neck area and pushes him about and the other pup is trying to escape, I watched them carefully and it dosn't look like they are playing or having fun, but no one seems to found out except me. just when I'm studying the pups I heard one of the visitors says ' they won't starting to look ugly after they've grown up will they?' I was like.. how can you say such a thing if you even considering keeping a living animal, how can you say if a pup will be growing into an 'ugly' dog. this shop is crazy. I'm feeling sick, and even now I'm feeling sick thinking about the poor shiba inu with long nose and the stupid people there is.
I'm feeling so sick.
don't know. but anyway, I spent my time in the pet shops and had a careful look of the cats and dogs. I feel that I 'm really more into dogs. even keeping them might demands more from me. it feels like if I can drop everything, forget all the shitty and stupid things i've done in the past and just enjoying the moment watching the pup/ dog. like if I can give everything just to be its friend, it would be so fun to play, jog and explore the park together, creating a new sport on the grass which can only be played by two of us, which a kitten/ cat couldn't do. I don't know, I think i'm still more into dogs. cats are great animals, but I would really like to have pet that I can take it outside and play with. if I can work out some more hours from my work maybe I can still get a pup sometime in the future, like if I can offer it extra hours of walk during lunch time and such..
