In Celebration os Small Things:a Dog Wearing Sunnies

We were deep in conversation, my friend and I, while walking along the beach when we noticed the little dog. He wore his sunnies with all the aplomb of an experienced beach goer so  we had to stop and admire him. His owner explained that his breed suffered from conjunctivitis which was exacerbated by the wind, sand and sun so she introduced him to the dog sunnies. At first he resisted but then found it easier to get around and enjoy his beach walks. I couldn’t  help but reflect on the extent to which owners will go to care for their pets. Like the man who made specialised bike wheels to help his dog when he lost both back legs in an accident, or the woman who pushed her blind dog in a pram each day in a hilly area of Brisbane so her pet could enjoy smelling his way around his favourite “walks”. There is no limit to the love many people have for their pets and in times such as these, its important to reflect on that lovely fact.
