The Tyson saga!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 11.09.19 PMThis is a column I wrote at the Gulf Daily News back in the beginning of 2010 when our pet Tyson returned home after having gone missing for three days.
I was reminded of those times by a blog I wrote yesterday (Mutt on the coast) and a comment that followed saying how humans insist on getting animals to comply with their “silly endeavors.”

unnamedI totally agree! Why should pets, particularly dogs, who are known to carry the same emotions and feelings as humans, follow man’s every whim when man does not himself do so for the dog?
So we have let Tyson be and take him for his “walk” only for him to do his thing and come right back in, sometimes taking only a few minutes. He’s petrified of traffic, people, machines, in fact, any noise whatsoever. He will not go out for hours on end if there are road works going on or there are people on the porch outside. He will certainly not move out if there is any kind of noise and that could be the imam at the mosque saying the evening prayer!
He was always like that, ever since we brought him home as a few days old pup. He was somewhat improving when “disaster” struck and he disappeared. And, ever since we got him back, he’s been what he’s today!
So, now, he eats, and sleeps, eats again, and sleeps some more. He’s happy that way, and so are we!

      Absolutely. Dogs are routinely stolen and put into illegal dog fights here. Licky he got home in one piece!

    Make sure to click on the newspaper clipping to read it! I love the part about all the irritating things Tyler did… that were missed so much! Glad he made it home!

      Oh, yes, we were glad he did, since we had all but given up on ever seeing him again!

  4. It is amazing that often times, some event permanently marks our pups fur-ever. Glad for the happy ending of Tyson’s return. 🙂
