  1. I think I could turn and live with animals,
    they are so placid and self-contain’d,
    I stand and look at them long and long.

    They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
    They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
    They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
    Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
    Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
    Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

  2. I find it curious that pets in other countries “speak” other languages.
    This cat knows more Russian than my Siberian Husky/Chow mix.

    Or maybe this is why she ignores me when I call her?

    Seek peace,

  3. There is a good Russian joke (it was quite popular in the Soviet days) about a guy who brought a dog from England. I’ll try to recollect it.

    “I’ve been teaching my dog commands “sit”, “down” and he doesn’t obey”.

    “Don’t forget that your dog is from England. You should say “sit, sir”, “down, sir”.
