Ve­gan ca­nines up for con­ver­sion

The Daily Examiner - - YOUR SAY -

VE­GANS are ve­gans and no doubt are en­ti­tled to their spot in the greater scheme of things, and that be­ing so, also en­ti­tled are the om­ni­vores and car­ni­vores who make up the ma­jor­ity of the hu­man race.

To each his (or her) own. Christ­mas tur­key din­ners were a real turnoff for Jenny Mox­ham, black arm­bands and a pe­riod of mourn­ing seemed to be ap­pro­pri­ate to Jenny.

Now, after mil­lions of years of de­vour­ing an­i­mal flesh and chomp­ing up bones, it’s our ca­nine friends that are in the fir­ing line for a con­ver­sion to ve­g­an­ism a la the Jenny Mox­ham doc­trine. It’s the pork­ers that are in line to join the “save the whale” cru­sade ac­cord­ing to Jenny.

Ham and ba­con can join all the other fleshy del­i­ca­cies and tit bits that dogs rel­ish and be as­signed to the evil bin.

Not all ve­gans or veg­e­tar­i­ans are so fix­ated in their life­styles as Jenny Mox­ham, no of­fence meant.

One such bloke I knew grew ba­nanas on a steep 2ha block.

He ran wires from a tape recorder in his shed to speak­ers through the bush sur­round­ing his block and at night he played soft clas­si­cal mu­sic to his ba­nanas. He reck­oned his fruit grew big­ger and straighter be­cause of the mu­sic. I think it had more to do with as­pect and the fer­tiliser he used.

He was an avowed veg­e­tar­ian to all and sundry.

But a neigh­bour swears that on a visit he could def­i­nitely smell rab­bit stew com­ing from a pot on the stove, re­lat­ing it to the sud­den de­cline in the rab­bit pop­u­la­tion along the creek. Fred Per­ring, Half­way Creek.
