Tony Deyal | Dog day afternoon and night

Right now, though, having moved from Barbados, Belize and Antigua, our personal stock is down to a Trini rabbit and two very little, furry dogs that came with Indranie from Antigua. In fact, she takes such good care of them and treats them so well that she is both a dogsbody and the dogs buddy.

Although I no longer need to walk long distances home in the dark, I still keep an athletic distance from dogs. The bigger the dogs, the greater my distance from them. More, because I am allergic to their fur and can’t play with them, I tend to let our sleeping dogs lie – not as much as our politicians perhaps, but enough to keep them in good health and strength

My wife Indranie is an animal magnet and claims this is why I was attracted to her. On the other hand, and given that we have been together for over 25 years, that clearly makes her an animal lover of the highest class and longest standing.

Wherever we have lived, she has fed the birds with seeds, bananas and bread, all except the tiny banana-quits which seem to have quit bananas for life, and the many beautiful and very demanding hummingbirds. They get a special and ongoing supply of a home-made sugary mix from Indranie.

When any of the feeders are empty, or the bread and seeds are not in the yard when they arrive, the birds either chirp angrily or look Indranie straight in the face and let her know in absolutely no uncertain terms their disappointment and, sometimes, their anger and disgust.
