Woland and his Traveling Suite - Wikipet
Future owners need to be selected wisely, - my mother taught me. What is the mind and where to get it in my two months I did not know yet, because I relied on what I had from birth - sense of smell and intuition. And that was probably the right choice in my life.
There were two of them, and from both, it somehow kindly blew kindness and comfort. He smelled of fresh beef tenderloin, and she timidly handed me fragrant homemade cookies. I ate cookies and licked her palm. She smiled back, and since then, for eight years now, he, she and I have been living in a single pack, and there is no one more beloved by my masters than me.
My story is special, like myself. Even my name - Woland - always caused a stormy reaction from passers-by. Someone entered into a discussion, saying that it is dangerous to call dogs like that. And someone winked approvingly, asking where is my retinue. Since then, I realized that I am an important person. Whether it is a tribute to my pedigree or the literary character of the same name, I dare not claim, but I require special attitude to myself. Lamb and wild berries feed, French beef fillet on weekends, chicken broth consom for colds. A soft and spacious bed, sofas and a bed are at full disposal. And yes, a vacation on the sea, regular trips to the mountains and a separate place in the car. For most neighboring dogs this sounds like an incomprehensible utopia, but for me, gentlemen, this is the reality of life.
Perhaps that is why it is difficult for aristocrats like me to find worthy interlocutors.The poor people living in the booths behind the fence in the neighborhood are only capable of idle chatter and hassle. Most spend their holidays in dog shelters, yearning for the owners and tormented by the thought that here it is, loneliness, as punishment for a torn sofa or eaten sausage.
My life experience, coupled with the mystical image assigned to me, obliges me to more philosophical topics. As an active traveler and a true cosmopolitan (in my canine sense of the word), I know how dogs live and what they talk about in different parts of the world, and I want to tell you not only my own story, but also their story.
