SPCA Angels for Animals nomination

Filed in Dogs of our Lives

My wife and I have been nominated as SPCA Angels for Animals this year. We will be talking about our pet and animal relationships at Tai Po on August 7, 2005.

I have made comments about the SPCA is past articles. Those comments are unfortunately true, but I have been able to talk to various people at the SPCA and have found out more about what happens at the SPCA and why with regards to abandoned animals. I'll write more about this later.

    Hi! Angel of Mercy,
    Congratulations to U2!

    Here’s a myth or might be a reality about dogs:
    1 year old dog = 7 years old person. True or false?

    To Mr Ho & all animal lovers:

    Live video on Panda Mei Xiang's delivery of her newborn baby at the National Zoo in Washington DC on July 9, 2005.
    Be patient! She's in slow motion.

    Thanks for the heads up, Sapphire. Personally, I don't really like Pandas; as they don't appear to be cute to me. I prefer polar bears, hee, hee.

    Sapphire,

    the 7x years calculation is approximate but wrong according to a book I've read. the early years of a dog's life actually equate to more than 7 years of ours because they're in the development stages. after that, it's something like 5 years. if I find the table, I'll publish it on the web site.

    even so, it's only an approximation and not a good one. even at 5x years, a 15 year old dog would be equivalent to 75 years in human years. at 7x, it'd be 105 years!

    Alison,

    the talk will be public. it's part of an ongoing publicity road show by the SPCA to educate people about pets. it'll be at 3pm at the Uptown Plaza on August 7.

    Both, I don't like Pandas much either. they're cute until you get close, then they seem to get mean. maybe I'm biased by the videos I've seen. I prefer polar bears but would never try to get close to one. they can kill you with a single swipe of their paws.

    Ths, greg, for ur speedy reply. I'll try to make it to the talk. I've never been to Tai Po, but I guess I can reach there by KCR? Well, maybe we can see some of ur doggies there??? I think many people will be interested in the topic. In the future, do u think there is any chance of holding this type of talks closer to the city center?

    I'd seen a panda, in fact two, when I brought my family to the Ocean Park early last year. They appeared to be quite snobbish to me. But again, it cld be my personal bias.

    A real bear is not as cute as a stuff teddy bear definitely. Bears are ferocious and dangerous mammals in NA.
    We had a chance to meet a grizzly bear accidentally few years ago at a National Park here. The bear was searching for food (grizzly bear’s omnivorous) from a huge garbage bin near the parking lot when we arrived there. The chubby bear around 250 lbs. with about 4 ft tall in deep brown color. Actually three park wardens and a crowd of visitors already there upon our arrival. One of the wardens was trying to evacuate the crowd from the parking lot quietly and slowly. He also taught all of us in case of an attack by the bear, it’s best to drop to the ground and play dead. No chance for us to fight back because the bear’s gigantic. The other two wardens were holding long guns in their hands loaded with tranquilizer (sort of drug to calm down animals temporarily) as a precaution. But a couple of minutes later, the grizzly moved with a slow shambling walk and returned to the forest spontaneously. Fortunately no one (included the bear) was hurt. Our close encounter with bear was an unforgettable and scary experience.
    Mr. Ho, except Kangaroo and Koala, any bear in Down Under?
