Who knew that July 15th was Cow Appreciation Day? I didn’t. I suppose they do need a day to let them know we appreciate them. I mean seriously, what would I do without the cream for my coffee or my cheeseburgers? And who doesn’t love a good steak? Then there is some good ol’ Chicken Fried Steak, which is comfort food of the best sort…… And we can’t forget the comfort of Beef Stew or meatloaf or a million other things they provide us with.
I’m not really sure how to celebrate this day but AgWeb has a list to help me out here.
I’m not sure if I would say Cows are my favorite animal though. There are pigs, which give up their lives so I can have my bacon. I do love my bacon.
Then we have horses and despite being scared of them ( an accident when I was small, involving my Daddy) I think they are majestic and magical in so many ways.
I admire cats for their independence and sass. Their ability to train their humans is unmatched. Growing up we always had cats. Sadly, Hubs is very allergic and I can’t have them now. If I could, well let’s just say I would meet most of the criteria to be classified as a crazy cat lady.
If I had to pick one animal that was my favorite it would be this little guy. He’s amazing and one of the best dogs I’ve ever known. He’s made us laugh, cry and driven us crazy. I fought as hard for him as I would have my daughter when he got sick. I’ve sat up with him at night and held him in my lap to bring him comfort when he was fighting for his life. My days are scheduled around his needs. Up at 5 a.m. every day so he can be fed and have his meds. Home by 5:30 every day for the same reason. He’s never met a stranger or a dog he didn’t try to be friends with. Even when he lost his sight he has shown no fear. As long as his Mama and Daddy are around, he’s good. He sheds all over the place and I spend my days vacuuming up pug hair. It’s on all my clothes, and all over the couch. He sleeps with us every night and heaven forbid I try to stay up past his bedtime. I can’t imagine life without him.
