This week, I thought I could blog about some of my favorites. Specifically, my favorite animals. As you know, I ADORE animals of all shapes and sizes, but there are a couple that just make my heart sing! My absolute, all time favorite animals are dogs and snow leopards. I love them so much for very different reasons, but they always have stuck in my mind as my favorites. We all have our favorite animals, so go ahead and comment your favorites and check out last week’s post.
Dogs, in my opinion, are pure balls of sunshine and love that decided to come down from heaven. Seriously though, dogs are the best thing to happen to the human race. They are used in so many ways, from hunting down drugs to just cuddling in bed. They are sweet, loving, and will adore you if they are raised right. There are also many, many breeds, so there are many types you can love. Each different breed has different qualities that make them special. You want a gorgeous, intelligent dog that can win awards? How about a purebred poodle? Rather have a cuddly, squishy dog that loves to sleep with you? Why not adopt a English bulldog? Trust me, adopt a dog, and your life will get SO MUCH BETTER.
Snow leopards are easily my favorite big cat. They are secretive, mysterious cats that live in the frigid mountains. They have long, fluffy fur with and big tail, pale green eyes, and sharp fanged teeth. They are excellent predators, and can jump as far as 50 ft in the air. They often eat the blue Tibetan mountain sheep, and often kill prey by leaping from high peaks onto sheep with either a skull-crushing bite or cut to the throat. They are endangered because of their beautiful fur coats, since they are illegally poached. Luckily, they are raising awareness to help protect these stunning cats, and hopefully the species population will rise again.
