Natural, bida ngayon ang alaga ko, si Fritz. Para sa akin, si Fritz ang pinaka-poging aso sa balat ng lupa. Malambing sya, mabait, mabango at kasalukuyang naghihilik sa tabi ko. Medyo spoiled itong alaga ko...kadalasan, nagpapasubo pa. Biro ng mga kaibigan ko, sayang lang daw ag binubuhos kong pagmamahal at atensyon kay Fritz. Buti pa daw ang kalabaw, napapakinabangan. Hindi ko minamaliit ang halaga at pakinabang ng kalabaw [lalo na sa mga magsasaka], pero pwede ko bang yakapin at halikan ito?

Naturally, Fritz is the star of today's post. For me, he is the handsomest dog in the planet. He's sweet, gentle, smells good and right now, snoring beside me. I admit, Fritz is a bit spoiled...more often than not, he nibbles on his food but eats heartily when spoon-fed. Friends love to tease me that I have a bad case of misplaced love for a pet, after all, Fritz couldn't do things for me. While I don't underestimate the value and usefulness of a water buffalo [especially to farmers], I don't think I could hug or kiss this animal.
Trivia: In 2004, the first test-tube hybrid carabao [water buffalo] was born in the Philippine Carabao Center in Nueva Ecija, and was named "Glory" after the former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
1) If you have a pet, do you think he or she understands you?
- yes, I believe Fritz understands me. certain words prompt him, he responds to my [tone of] voice.
2) What is the most endearing trait of our pet?
- Fritz is most endearing when he lays his head on my leg and waits to be scratched; my heart melts every time he runs to the door to welcome me home, or licks my nose when I tell him I love him.
