    I lived in a suburb of Yokohama

    for 6 years. The town had no place to have fun but there was a small river running through near my apartment. There were carps in the river and some locals enjoyed feeding them from the river bank. I joined them. Once in a while, I bought bags of snacks, went to the river bank...

    A dog has no use for fancy cars

    or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbol means nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull...

    I think it's really unfortunate

    when people discriminate against dogs because of their breed, especially when they look at my dog like he's going to attack them or something. If only they could see that he's seriously just a huge love monster! :)

    One day, I bought grilled meat on sticks

    that were hot and looked very delicious. As I carried them in a paper bag, I saw a terrier and an owner and her friend walking about 20m away. The dog all of a sudden stopped and sat down to the owner's surprise. She was asking the dog "what happened?" and her friend was...

    I have no problem with pigeons.

    But I know some hate them. One person said pigeons are flying rats. Pigeons have some cute behaviors like basking in the sun or picking and caring for their feathers. I sometimes watch them when I have nothing to do waiting for a train.

    I started loving animals

    when I got my very first pet- a rabbit. Ever since then, I've absolutely loved animals and I'm going to study animal science. This is my current bunny Sunny, isn't she a cutie?

    It's been such a rough weekend.

    My dog ate a sock without me knowing and it got stuck inside his intestine. Had to take him to the doggy ER Saturday and he finally had surgery today to remove it. He is doing ok but has a slight fever. I'm so praying my furry baby boy comes back to me. I don't know what I would...

    I adopted a kitten from an animal shelter,

    and now I work there at that same shelter! It's a great way to take care of animals you love and seeing them everyday, without having to have them all living in your home
