普京與秋田-英國人的養狗文化
最近日本傳媒到俄羅斯對俄國總統普京進行訪問,原本正常不過的一宗外交時事,因為一隻狗而充滿了喜感。
 
 
話說日本四年前贈送了一隻秋田犬給普京,命名為「夢」。今次日媒到俄羅斯想趁機會探望一下小狗,誰知當年的「小狗」,今天已經成為霸氣十足的秋田犬大媽。秋田犬一出,猛吠過不停,嚇呆了日本記者。普京則施施然從口袋拿出零食餵牠,場面充滿溫馨歡樂。
 
 
有網友笑指秋田犬在俄國狗似主人型,變得像普京一樣霸氣十足。對啊,真的會狗似主人型。Ellie也跟我一樣企唔定四圍走……

講起狗,英國人對狗也有一套哲學。所謂「狗是人類最好的朋友」,不是得個講字。從語言上,英國人都已經會叫狗做he或she而不是it。雖然小學是教動物要用it的,不過對住朋友,總不會用it吧!
 
 
另一文化分野較大的地方,在於英國的寵物店其實絕少賣寵物,只是賣寵物用品比較多。原因是寵物店牌照的門檻太高,想開也不是易事。雖然街頭有時也會看到有流浪狗,但不要亂帶走,因為是犯法的。你總不知道那頭汪阿哥是不是拋低狗主出來散散步,而帶流浪狗入屋也是犯法的。所以在英國,想養狗的最好做法是留意報紙,或者去領養中心找你人生的另一半。

還未夠癲,英國Sky TV更曾經拍攝節目,訓練一班狗狗揸小型飛機,無花無假,機師真的雙手離開軚盤,全由狗仔控制,真是將生命也奉獻到一班汪阿哥手上……佩服,佩服。
 
 
英國人的愛狗之情,從英女皇中都體現到。她曾經為愛犬哥基Susan親自操刀切食物、又徒手幫她捉蝨、還跟她一起食蜂皇漿,待遇仲好過我。一國之君都愛犬如子,難怪英國上下都視狗狗為Best friend。

聖人甘地曾經講過「一個國家的道德水準,看人民對動物的態度就可知道。」那麼英國人的道德唔會差得去邊。至於俄羅斯呢?我望一望秋田犬,再望一望普京個樣……戰鬥民族是有樣睇的。師父,明白了。
