No matter how our partners, politicians, friends, and people surrounding disappoint and betray us, No matter how poor and worthless we are, our dog will be the only one who never leave us. They are so faithful and loyal that they deserve the title of being the Best Friend of human. It was always heart broken to see my dog passed away, as if I lost a friend. Personally I really, really hate the people who abuse dog.
Last Sunday I went to the Dog Talent Show in Asia City Complex. During the show, we saw the police and guard dogs in action. Dogs have sense of smell a million times stronger than human, so finding hidden drug is no difficult task to them. I remember the name of (see picture below, from left to right, top to bottom) 1st dog is Zorro, 2nd is Rokok (cigarette), 3rd is Max, 4th is… (forget liao). I was particularly impressed by the guard dog. They are like a programmed robot, coz you can ON and OFF their attack at ANY point of time. When the master shouts STOP, they will stop immediately, no matter they are in the middle of charging, attacking or biting. You also can switch on their Alert mode, the dog will keep an eye on the criminal and stop him from running away. Besides verbal command, guard dogs also can accept command from hand signal of their owners. They should be awarded the Best Employee too, as they really work like dog.
Some dogs do not need to work though. They are more like a “toy” (si manja) to their masters. They may not have any special talent, but at least they can lick their nose with tongue. Can you do it? The crowd was so crazy about the dogs and puppies, and all the dogs were enjoying free massage from their fans. Everyone was having fun with Chihuahua, Golden Retriever, Bulldog, Terrier, Dachshund, Siberian Husky, Shih Tzu, etc.
My favourite is Golden Retriever. They cannot retrieve any gold for me, but I like their friendly personality and soft golden hair, so lovely. They always look like smiling and in good mood. Golden Retriever is always trained as the guard dog for the blind and classroom dog for the children. I would say they are one of the greatest gift to human. Their hair is so long. I wonder how they stand the hot weather of Malaysia.
Heheh… the interaction between dog and human is my main photography target, but the interaction between dogs is even more interesting. I was using my Canon EOS 400D camera. Sadly, I am still not good in using the setting. The exposure and white balance were terrible. Still learning…
Height is a factor in dog relationship. If pug can mate with Golden Retriever, their offspring would look like…

The Siberian Husky attracted a lot of attention (and molestation), coz they are the dogs from north pole. Their fur is so shiny and beautiful. They are very playful and energetic. During the “catwalk”, they even played among themselves.
BTW, just to let you know that chocolate and garlic are bad to the health of dogs, so please don’t feed your dogs with M&M, Kit Kat, Garlic Bread… Talking about eating… I remember when I lived in the dorm of a US university, there was a guy (orang putih) who liked to bring his love dog hanging around. Whenever he saw me, he would say something like “Hi, this is my dog, Dolly. I love her so much that I could die for her. Yes, I would do anything to make her happy…” I didn’t quite understand why he repeated the same message over and over again to me, that I almost wanted to suggest him to marry his dog. Probably someone told him that some Asians eat dog, so he worried that his love would disappear. Sorry lah, I only eat Hot Dog.
There are so many dog lovers in Sabah. Is it because our map looks like dog head? Hahaha… I am thinking of getting a girlfriend who has an adorable dog, so I can hug both of them. Buy 1 free 1… Well it is better to get a big dog such as Rottweiler to watch the door, consider the increasing robbery cases. If I use a Chihuahua, I would end up losing both my value stuffs and the dog.
