Myth

Dog’s are howling, someone’s going to die!

Who said that?

Dad said!

Death is inevitable and no one on earth could predict it.

But dad said, dog’s cacophony is a bad sign.

World is created by men like your dad, don’t believe anyone, question them, even me. Dog’s are our friends, they love us, the abandoned dogs feel lonely and they let out their feelings by howling, if some other dogs Howl, they share their feelings together.

I would like to adopt all our street dog’s.

All of them?

Yes mom, I don’t want them to feel lonely again.

  1. Beautiful Simon! We are animal lovers too, we want to adopt them all. Our current fur babies were all strays. And I agree, Myths and old-wives-tales should be questioned endlessly, less we fall back into suspicious and closed-minded, toxic ways of our past. Great take on the prompt Simon!
