How do we justify 'lucky', 'happy' and 'content'?
I feed street dogs near my office area everyday. In one dark and windy night, I had found these 8 puppies after the heavy rain under the unwanted cars. They were terribly wet and dirty but they were running and playing around with joy. I feel sorry and bad when I saw these 8 puppies. The voice of my heart have been telling me that I am lucky as I do have a home and the love and care from my parents.
By putting aside all the realistic issues (where to keep them, how to re-home them, how much can I spend on them, what do I do if there is no one wants them etc.), I have chosen to pick them up. I have placed them in a Pet Hotel as none of my friend or colleague is willing to shelter them and I already have 2 dogs with a 'not-dogs-lover' mum at home.
If you were to ask me, 'How do we justify 'lucky', 'happy' and 'content', I would answer you as follows :-
For us humans, to stay in a country where there is no war.
For the puppies, to have a chance to meet a human friend before he/she says 'no or perhaps'.
For us humans, to have food and shelter.
For the puppies, to meet a kind-hearted and responsible reader like you.
For us humans, to give love and care to those who are less lucky and happy.
For the puppies, to have your love and care for the entire life in whatever condition, be it healthy or sick, rich or poor, moody or steady.
