I do, especially chicken and pork - they taste good!
Ok, jokes aside.
I have a colleague, she's in her 40s, married and have no kids. But she has this doggie which she was strongly attached to. Just like how parents will tend to talk more about their kids, my colleague also give reference to her doggie as if it was her own child.
Lately, she was on urgent leave for a few days. Her doggie died. I presumed it's due to some body malfunction. And now that she's back to work, I think it affected her quite a fair bit. She looked pale, and from her eyes, you can see she cried a great deal recently.
As I was walking by her cubicle just now, I saw her staring blankly at the pic of her beloved doggie. My heart sank. I wished she will recover soon.
For a while, I was reminded why I can never be a owner of pets. I'm way too self-centered and practical to hold an additional responsibility and attachment to a pet of my own. And plus, I never liked clearing up people's sh*t (pun intended).
Do you keep pets of your own, and do you get REALLY emotional over their welfare?
