Yes, she is a water-buffalo and I meet her everyday on my morning walks.
Thank you very much for your concern. But I would like to reassure you that there is no cause for worry.
That buffalo is indeed my friend and we understand each other very well.
There are these fields about 2 kilometres from our home. Actually those are empty housing plots. The builders, somehow, haven’t yet got down to constructing houses!
Good for us, because there isn’t usually anyone around to complain when we run off-leash!
Daddy takes us there every single morning and we get to explore and play to our hearts content.
For the past years, we have been meeting this herd of buffaloes there. Initially, both Mummy and the herd were terrified!
Mummy, because she thought those horns look formidable and the buffaloes, because they were startled by our woofs and weren’t sure we actually wanted to play!
Buddy couldn’t care less. He preferred to play with his lizard and squirrel friends.
So, one day, I took matters into my own paws.
I went over to this buffalo-girl and stood there silently, without a woof.
Soon she got the idea and decided it isn’t such a bad idea to be friends with me.
Now, we often meet and she comes over to say ‘sniffello’.
Sometimes we play.
I ALWAYS win because I am much, much quicker on my paws than her. And do not worry, I always keep a safe distance away from those horns. (The camera makes it look much closure, I promise)
On most occasions though, she goes about her business and I with mine.
I think we are friends.
The following pictures are from an evening in those fields.
It had been raining and we couldn’t make it there for our morning walk. However, the evening sky was a photographer’s delight and Mummy did not let the opportunity pass by!
We, of course, were only too glad to run along!
Buddy - very,very busy!
