Love, unfiltered.

I went to the Animal Friends League of Kuwait shelter this past Friday. My sister is a regular volunteer there.

In spite of Thursday night being the usual get-very-plastered-and-go-to-bed-naked types, I woke up at 7:30 (ish) and got dressed on time (ish).

Bursting adoration. I don't know else to describe the experience.

THERE WUZ LUV-PUPPIZ EVERYWHERE!

All they wanted to do is run. And lick your face. And run. And run.

Every time we opened the door to a kennel to let the dogs come exploding out into the play area, it made me want to take them all home with me. All 50 or so of them.

We romped with almost every one of these dogs.

It was easy to fall in love with Axel, the charmer. My favourite though, was Fluffy. Between us, we invented our own game. It's called Howl-Yo-Ass-Off-While-Running-Around-In-Circles-Like-
Yo-Bum-Wuz-On-Fire.

Fluffy was part of the reason I decided to go back there next week.

And then naturally, I stood there and watched Fluffy get adopted.

It's all good, I guess.

I'm still going back next Friday. WITH MY CAMERA! :D

sure you can fall in love with Alex :P coz i fell in love with Frank (he's on the third page)

*Wonders how fluffy looks like*

I used to go to paws. They have freaky cats! and this Bobby is officially the freakiest goofiest one !! HAHAHA I feel sorry for him. they used to have a pug! look at This one! such an ugly lovely shorty clown!

Glad you had a fun puppy(ish) weekend :D

Don't forget to take your camera next Friday! :D

Blue Dress, no, the place is in Wafra. And it's a long, hot drive. If you're going, I suggest take an icebox with lots of water and lemonade and some entertainment in the car.
(Understand though, when I say puppies, I mean all dogs. For me, everything with four legs is a puppy. Felines included :D )

Ray, I'm guaranteeing you and your nieces'll love it. It's such a good place for kids to learn to appreciate animals.
The damn dogs have been on my mind all the time since that day. I can't wait to go back and just drown myself in a sea of puppies.

L, PAWS don't got no Bobby page anymore *scowl*
I wonder what would happen if PAWS and the Animal Friends League got together and made a combined effort at animal rescue instead of competing with each other. Hmmm
Fluffy was small and white and hyper and had ears that looked like long pony tails.

You want to play my new game with me? I promise I'll let you win.

That is suh-weet. I am not much of a dog person myself. They can be quite adorable though! Will definitely be waiting for pictures.

For once, I wish I were a puppy so I'd get loved as much by you, and also play that hilarious sounding game of Howl-Yo-Ass-Off-While-Running-Around-In-Circles-Like-
Yo-Bum-Wuz-On-Fire..LOL
You are so cute. *kichu*

Ri said...

N, I'm not very good with a camera, so don't even expect the animals to be recognizable at dogs.

Indi, you know my love for you is unconditional. Stop fishing for compliments *lick*

Esha, scared of doggies? Aww, they're nothing but love with fur and a waggy tail.

How many puppies does it take to paint a fence?

It depends on how hard you throw them.

What is the difference between a truck load of bowling balls and a truck load of puppies?

You can unload one with a pitch fork.

Ri said...

YAY! Now you have If All Else Fails (Again) Plan B - Stand-Up Comedian.

Ri said...

Blue Dress, and they take old sheets and blankets and stuff like that. So if you've got some to get rid of, now you know what to do with them.
