Can You Imagine If You Marry with A Four-legged Friend?

On June 28, 2018, a very special wedding was held in a small fishing village in San Pedro Huamelula, Oaxaca, Mexico. The villagers married a crocodile to  Victor Aguilar Ricardez, the mayor of San Pedro Huamelula, for good luck and good harvest.

It is reported that marrying a crocodile is a custom of the Chontar Indians, which began in 1789. They believe that the ceremony can bring good luck to fishermen on the Pacific coast of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec of Oaxaca. In this custom, crocodiles are seen as princesses who bring peace and prosperity to the tribe.

The crocodile is mainly baptized first, then put on a custom wedding dress. On the wedding day, it wore a veil and marched on the street with orchestral music. After the parade, the crocodile held a wedding ceremony with the mayor in the town hall.

 

It is really an unimaginable behavior to marry an animal! However, this is not the only case that man marry with animals. We have found other cases of man marry with dogs to share with you.

An Indian married a dog in 2007

When Selva Kumarr was 18, he saw two dogs mating and killed them. He hung their bodies on a tree, and since then he has been bad. In that year, he not only lost his hands and feet but also lost his hearing. After 15 years, Kumar could no stand the pain of the “Curse of the Dog” any more, so he turned to an astrologer for help to get rid of the terrible curse. The astrologer told him: “Look for a dog to get married.” So in November 2007, Selva Kumar married a 10-year-old dog named Selvi.

An Australian married a dog in 2010

In 2010, a 20-year-old Australian man, Joseph Guiso, married his best friend Honey, a 5-year-old dog Labrador.

Guiso is a college student who gave a sweet kiss to his dog at the wedding. More than 30 of Joseph’s friends and relatives and the bride’s many four-legged friends witnessed this sweet moment.

Guiso calls himself a “monk,” and he feels guilty that he and Honey are living together in a non-marital relationship. In spite of this, he assured people that their love is pure and will be always courteous to each other.

An Indian girl married a dog in 2003

In June 2003, Karnamoni Handsa, a 9-year-old girl from a tribe in eastern India, held a wedding with a stray dog. This wedding is a part of an exorcism ritual because the local custom is: if a child’s first tooth is erupted in the upper gums, then the child will encounter a lot of risks in his life. Only to marry a dog can avoid the disaster.

The tribal elders were very open-minded, they said: ”Marriage with a dog does not affect the life of the little girl. She can still get married again, and she does not have to divorce the dog before remarriage.”

What’s your opinion about marry four-legged friends?

Why Do Cats Purr?

If you love cats, their purr is probably one of the most soothing voices in the world for you. Purring from cat is like the essence of satisfaction, but it sounds weird and odd. How does the cat continuously emit a perfect vibration for a few minutes? After decades of research, no one can find out exactly why. But here are some things that we can be sure about.

When the cat is sleeping next to you or is intimate with you, it can often be heard that it emits a continuous purring sound. Most people mistakenly believe that this is the purr cat made while sleeping. In fact, the purring sound is the sound a cat made when its false vocal cords vibrate.

From a medical point of view, the skeleton of the cat’s throat is composed of thyroid cartilage and cricoid cartilage. The laryngeal cavity is divided into three parts, the upper part is the laryngeal vestibule and the trailing edge is the false vocal cord. The cavity between the false vocal cord and the true vocal cord is the second part of the laryngeal cavity. The third part is the cavity between the vocal cords and the cartilage ring, which is very narrow.

A cat’s purr is a sound made by the resonance of laryngeal cavity when the false vocal cords vibrate. In fact, when cats are snoring, they do not fall asleep. Cats do not snore when they are playing, feel nervous and really fall asleep.Only when cats are satisfied, or when they feel relaxed and happy in owner’s arms, will they make a brisk purring sound.

At this point, adult cats and Persian cats are more prominent, while kittens rarely snore. Persian cats snore because of their short nasal passages. Adult cats purr because they are more appreciative of enjoying their lives and understanding humans’ caresses and relatives. Therefore, the most typical explanation for the purr sound is that it is a manifestation of happiness and satisfaction. But cats also purr for many other reasons.

Leslie A. Lyons, an assistant professor at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis, explains that: “Cats often purr while under duress, such as during a visit to the veterinarian or when recovering from injury. Thus, not all purring cats appear to be content or pleased with their current circumstances.”

In fact, we don’t know why cats make a “purr” sound, but it seems obvious that this sound has multiple effects. Paul Leyhausen, a renowned animal behaviorist who has spent decades studying cats, said that purr is a way for cats to communicate with each other to show that they are not malicious. A recent study found that when a cat needs people to feed it, it emits a special “purr” sound (of course, it often makes a “purr” sound during eating).

Maybe actually the cat purred is not because it was happy, but just consoling itself with the fact that it had to be touched for the 50,000th time on the head by these active people.

In addition, if the cat keeps snoring regardless of the circumstances, it may be a respiratory infection, and don’t be careless about this.

I Can’t Stand To Have Only One “Take Your Dog To Work Day” Every Year, So I…

I can’t stand having only one “TYDTWDay” every year, so I…. want to share funny stories that day with you 🙂

Only I have a dog among all my colleagues, I am really the winner in life!

Dress your dog in a suit and let them experience the life of office workers!

I feel nervous because it is the first time for me to be a deliverer.

Taking dogs to the meeting and even boring meeting will be fun.

Let me see which one is better.

I don’t know what he is laughing at… emmm, so I laugh with him.

For me, going to work is just moving to another place to sleep.

Dog owner: I feel the burden on my shoulders is heavier…

But for this police dog, things become a little difficult, after all, itself is a dog and it wants to take another dog to work…. on second thought, it takes his “best friend” to the office….

TYDTWDay was first celebrated in 1999. 2018 marks the 20th annual event.

 It was created by Pet Sitters International (PSI) to celebrate the great companions dogs make and promote their adoptions. The event encourages employers to experience the joys of pets in the workplace for one day to support their local pet communities. PSI feels that through the events, non-pet owners are able to witness the special bond their co-workers have with their pets firsthand and be encouraged to adopt a new best friend of their own.

Who Is The Winner in 2018 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest?

The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is an annual contest held in Petaluma, California, as part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair, to decide which of the dogs entered in the contest is the ugliest. Along with the title of “The World’s Ugliest Dog”, the winner’s owner receives a check for 1,500 dollar, a trophy and a free trip to New York City.

There is significant media coverage, and as many as 2,000-3,000 people attend the contest during the fair each year. The fair now holds an all-day Dog Lovers’ Festival preceding the evening contest.

The judges used the dog’s hair, defects, presence or absence of teeth, protruding tongues, and other distinctive features as criteria for judgment.

Zsa Zsa, a 9-year-old bulldog from Anoka, Minnesota, won the 2018 contest. Her owner, Megan Brainard, noted the dog had been rescued from a puppy mill. Her distinguishing characteristic was an extremely long tongue that protruded almost to the ground.

The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is an annual event, which has a history of 30 years. One of its organizers stated that when it was originally held as a town party, but now it is a national and worldwide event.

For nearly 30 years, the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest has been a testament that the pedigree does not define the pet. Dogs of all breeds and sizes have warmed our hearts and filled our lives with unconditional love. This world-renowned event celebrates the imperfections that make all dogs special and unique.

The contest is a spice of life that will make the world more relaxed and beautiful. While fun and entertaining, the contest speaks to the importance of advocating for the adoration of all animals and the benefits of adopting. Many of the contestant dogs have been rescued from shelters and puppy mills, to find loving homes in the hands of those willing to adopt.
