Please Dont Hit your Dog - Here's Why
last updated 04th, May 2018,
It's a small story of one of my friend Raj and his dog Tom. Raj loves his dog and takes great care of him like grooming, bathing, walking etc, on the other hand, Tom is extremely adorable. Tom had this habit of stopping Raj from leaving home by grabbing one of his legs. An incident happened on a Tuesday morning when I was waiting for Raj outside his home and calling out his name loudly because we were getting late for our classes. As I saw Raj rushing towards the gate, all of a sudden Tom grabbed his leg with his legs full of mud. This made raj really furious and made him hit Tom for the first time and it was a little too harsh. When I tried explaining that we should never hit animals, he replied saying that that's how they learn to behave at times. We left for our classes post that.
Somehow we managed to reach on time & at about 5:00PM I dropped him back home. Tom came out of the house with a huge smile & wagging his & aunty mentioned that he did not eat anything ever since we left. We saw Tom's face and ended up cuddling him. Raj felt very extremely guilty for having hit and asked me to accompany him to buy chicken. A funnier thing happened just when we were about to leave, Tom grabbed Raj's leg again. However, this time raj just got down, patted his head and said no while slowly letting go of his puppy legs and left.
