Every animal has life like a human being. The reason animal lovers like their pets, whether dogs or cats. There are animal lovers in Africa too, but unlike Europe or America, Africans don’t share bed or sofa, with a dog or cat. The task of an African dog is to be outside to protect his master’s property against thieves.
In Europe, many Africans dating or married to White women, aren’t finding life easy with their partners over the way they socialize with their pets and also behind the dining table. The difference of culture clash is often like a burden to an African. It’s clear an animal has feelings because it’s a living creature. It is therefore a crime when one treats animals bad or cruel, above all we shouldn’t forget that a dog is man’s best friend.
However; is it right for a dog and human being to use the same plate? You can’t love a White woman, without loving her pet. Once you don’t like her pet, she assumes you don’t love her, but frankly speaking, it would be very difficult for an African to use the same plate used to serve a dog’s food.
Sleeping with dog, act of abomination in Africa, even though very common in Europe and America.
Similar problem Kwame was facing when he fell in love with this young attractive beautiful dog lover. Anytime after eating, she sets the dirty plates on the floor for her dog to lick the plates clean, before putting them in the dish washing machine. Kwame thought that’s not right and couldn’t hold it any longer so he voiced out.
The woman wasn’t happy when he spoke against it. “Well it doesn’t matter since the plates go into the dish washing machine.” She said. There is a difference between hating an animal and the dislike of sharing the same plate with an animal, but such cases are often judged otherwise. It was hard to accept Kwame’s explanation because of her love for her dog.
“Yes, I understand. I love you and I love Twilight (the dog) too, but in Africa, this is never done whether the plate goes inside washing machine or not, human beings can’t eat in the same plate a dog licks,” said Kwame. It’s unfortunate that many people aren’t ready to change, instead want others to love or follow whatever they do or love.
Just nine months after the happy union, the row over a human being sharing the same plate with a dog split the couple apart and both went on separate ways. I love dogs and I’ve owned one before called Allswell, but we didn’t share the same plate or bed. No matter how I love my wife or girlfriend, I will not share the same plate with our pet, because a dog is an animal and I’m a human being.
Man’s best friend?
