Dog's Diet

The classification in the Order Carnivora does not necessarily mean that a dog's diet must be restricted to meat. Dogs are able to healthily digest a variety of food including vegetables and grains, and in fact dogs can consume a large proportion of these in their diet. In the wild, dogs can survive on a vegetarian diet when animal prey is not available.

Arabian Nights

I used to derive so much enjoyment from a big book I possessed, which is now lost. ?One thousand and one nights?, with its stories of djinns, flying carpets, magic lamps, phoenixes and the desert filled hours of daydreams and magination. It?s a shame I can?t enjoy these stories so innocently now as a Malaysian Chinese adult; there are just a thousand and one associations to the Middle East that are scary to me.
