No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
- Nelson Mandela
For if you’ve ever cared for someone, doggo or hooman, you know that it is up to us to guide, nurture and have them appreciate all beings equally 🙂
A very non-serious post. I ordered these months ago and because of COVID they arrived yesterday. They’re plush toys versions of Odin and Thor the @got_direwolves. The dogs were featured in season 1 of Game Of Thrones as Stark Direwolves. Odin passed away in March due to cancer so the money raised from the sale of these toys is going towards dog charities in Northern Ireland. I met the dogs twice in my travels to Northern Ireland... most recently just over a year ago. The drinking horn is made from real horn and has the logo of the tour company on it. Odin’s memory will live on for me. In the second picture Odin is on the left (Thor on my right) and you can see what a majestic dog he was. I will be having a horn of Guinness in his honor. GOT made a huge impact in the lives of people of Northern Ireland and changed the reputation from one of trouble to a tourist destination. It allowed many people like the Mulhalls ( who own the dogs) to start a touring company and meet fans from all over the world. The landscape is as epic as what you see on TV and the people are as nice as can be. Looking forward to visiting again when it’s safe. Check out their bio and website. It’s a great story. #odin#majesticdog#weshallneverseehislikeagain
Már régóta sétáltunk, de megérte III. rész: egyébként 2 kutyával indultunk - ő itt Fino, egy afrikai oroszlánkutya! Láthatóan élvezte 😍☝️ Az afrikai oroszlánkutya Zimbabwe állam területéről származik. Jelenleg az afrikai oroszlánkutya az egyetlen bejegyzett Dél-Afrikából származó őshonos fajta. Ősi kutyafajta, amely már az i. e. 2500 tájáról származó ókori egyiptomi falfestményeken megjelenik. /// 🇬🇧 It’s worth the time to walk further and see this view part 3 - We were with two dogs - Here’s Fino (type: Rhodesian Ridgeback, owner: @deutschlevi ) - that day - What a Majestic animal! He feels free 👌
