This “puppy pack” was spotted on the beach, seemingly having a lot of fun, when we took our regular evening walk today. The four, apparently from the same litter, were “fighting” for a piece of carelessly discarded chamois leather but the way they were “smiling and giggling”, it seemed they were a bunch of children having the time of their lives, unconcerned with anything around them. One would never want these animals to ever grow because they are at their best, and cutest, when they are a few weeks old. But that is not the case, be it humans or animals.
It’s good they are having fun – at least for the time being – for one never knows where they will end up because not all “pet-lovers” are actually that!

I snapped these majestic words taking a walk along the Arad Bay in Bahrain. It was a sight to see them make their way across the rising tide but not really moving much. While common to spot storks and other migratory birds on the coastline, I have rarely spotted so many in one group.
This beautiful “couple” was spotted near the Bahrain International Airport. The stork “interaction”, even if it was two weeks after Valentines Day, took place as the high tide was coming in at the Arad Walkway, providing hundreds of evening walkers with an interesting interlude.
While on my (ir)regular evening walk on the coast, I came across these three dogs, belonging to families that have made the “beach” their home, complete with fully furnished villas and other luxury amenities.
One look at the three and we can see the state of these four-legged beings in various states of (dis)comfort.
One of them (top) looks well-fed and rather aggressive. He “greeted” me with a fair amount of hostility as I attempted to take his picture. He also came across as someone with a lot of attitude.
The one in the centre, a two-month old German Shepard, also seemed content and happy, frolicking around with his owners.
The third “man’s best friend” I came across, however, seemed sad and forlorn, limping around with a bandage on his leg. He seemed hungry, sick, unloved, lonely and uncared for.
Makes me feel for these very loyal and loving beings who never seem to hold a grudge against their masters and mistresses, even though they are badly treated at many times.
And then there is my mutt, Tyson (left), spoilt to the core, thoroughly a nuisance at most times but still enjoys five-star luxury. As they say, each one comes with its own destiny.
It’s certainly a dog’s life for many but then there are those who live life king size!
