Silent, quiet [Tahimik]

         @ mirandablue         Silent Companion by Seb Chua
Gusto kong bigyan pugay si Seb Chua, ang gumawa ng sculpture na ito sa Eastwood Mall.  Istatwa ng aso at tao na tinawag n'yang "Silent Companion".

Nakakalungkot ang kalagayan ng maraming aspin na pakalat-kalat sa kalsada.  Naturingan na "man's best-friend" pero bakit maraming umaabuso sa aso?  Nag-aalala ako kapag umuulan kung may nasisilungan ba sila.  Nakakakain ba sila at hindi pinag-mamalupitan?

Ang pag-alaga ng anumang hayop ay isang responsibilidad.  Nagugutom, nauuhaw, nasasaktan at nangangailangan sila ng kalinga.  Sana h'wag balewalain at pabayaan na lang.

Si Fritz, ang aking tahimik na kaibigan at kasama.  Naghihintay at masayang sumasalubong sa akin sa pinto, taga-gising ko sa umaga, nakakapawi sa pagod, nakakapagpangiti at nakakapagpasaya sa akin, at tahimik na nakikinig lang sa mga hinaing ko.  Hindi man s'ya nakakapagsalita, alam n'yang mahal ko s'ya.  At sa pagkawag lang ng kanyang buntot, alam kong masaya din s'ya.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.”

For Thursday Two Questions:
1.  Would you prefer silence or angry words?
2.  If your dog/cat could talk, what would he/she tell you?

ang cute naman ni fritz. kung di lang matrabaho ang aso meron na din ako. kaya lang you need to walk them and we don't have time right now for that.

kaya pusa na lang. i'm picking up my second cat from the shelter later this pm so i'm very excited.

if my cat emma could talk she would tell me: GIVE ME MORE FANCY FEAST :). It's all about food and sleep with them anyway and since she's getting all the sleep she needs and want, she'd want more fancy food.

Napakaganda naman ng aso mo.

Never pa nagfail na mapaiyak ako niyang sculpture na yan.

Pero napaiyak ako nito
"He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.”

Naalala ko kasi yung aso ko na namatay 3 years ago because of parvo. He only left when we told him that he should rest na. Pero he fought to stay with us till his very last heart beat and breath.

If you have time, do drop by:

Tahimik

1) Angry words. At least I know what the anger is all about.

2)...they'll say "get off my house and my pillows!" ;-)

Hi Luna. Please don't get offended but my dogs and I are in this advocacy to clarify that an "aspin" (asong pinoy) is not a "stray" (askal) nor a mixed breed or mongrels. Since there are no Philippine bred dogs, an "asong pinoy" are dogs born in the Philippines. We degrade our culture by referring to the strays as native or local dogs. My dogs are proudly Pinoy dogs and they wear their badge in the international community of pure and mixed breed dogs and cats! Oh, I'm sure Fritz is also one proud Pinoy dog! Cheers!

Luna Miranda said...

none taken, Lui.:p
i agree with you, all dogs born in the Philippines are "aspin". but whatever we call the stray dogs, it is degrading to our culture that many Pinoys mistreat dogs, and even butcher and eat them.

thanks for droppin' by.

i would prefer angry words than the silent treatment. it's better that anger is vented out than kept inside to fester.

Fritz would say, "stop this diet nonsense and give me my treats!":p

uy, ang cute naman ni Fritz!! Thanks for the visit! Happy LP

Self Sagacity said...

1) I would prefer silence to angry words.

2) Why can't you slow down?

Jay - agent112778 said...

1) cant choose between the two bcoz they are both extreme...as for me, i really want to hear and say angry words in a silent tone (malumanay pero may laman)

2) "im hungry"

Poetic Shutterbug said...

1. I think angry words because it gets the anger out. Silence only holds the anger in.

2. They would say "I love you Mommy."

Icy BC said...

1) Silence is much better than angry words.

2) If my dog/cat could talk, he/she would say I don't need a cage and want to be free!

SquirrelQueen said...

Fritz is a beautiful dog.

Silence never solved a problem so I guess I would go for the angry words.

My cat would tell me to not be so stingy with the treats and maybe share some of the fish I cooked for dinner tonight.

monument to Fritz! salamat po sa visit sa blog ko....

DoanLegacy said...

Great questions!

1) I prefer loud words, not angry, get it out and get pass it!

2) If I have a cat/dog, I think it would say just love me!

Thanks for joining us..See you next week.

Buti na lng may sculpture na "Silent Companion" para paalalahanan tayo n alagaan ang ating mga alaga kahit ito ay Aspin.

Mayroon din akong aso; Chuchie ang name nya. Sya rin ang taga gising namn s bahay tuwing umaga. Mahirap magalaga pero rewarding naman.

About the question:
1. I prefer silence
2. Chuchie will say "Gutom na ko," matakaw ksi sya kaya mabilis tumaba.

Hanggang s muli!
