world vegan day

021

October, World Vegetarian Month, was rounded off with today, November 1, being World Vegan Day. Admittedly I (we) did not celebrate or respect it with a completely vegan food day - vegetarian cheese, butter, honey and halloumi were consumed too - but the leftover spicy lentil stew for lunch and dinner was delicious and vegan.

I did however celebrate it by doing one of the loveliest things I've done in a long time - walking, playing and cuddling with two dogs named Malte! Yes, there's another dog named Malte in the hood, totally a copycat namewise but also totally adorable, a sweet-natured pug as he is.

Took loads of pics, got some nice ones, but mostly they were a blur. Which of course is a great proof that the doggies enjoyed themselves. The pug Malte was quite taken with me, I got loads of kisses, the REAL Malte didn't exactly approve of the attention lavished on the other Malte but he's such an easy going character - the grump he saves for the cats.

Spending time with animals really is the best soothing of the soul there is. And that I did and had a plethora of on World Vegan Day.

How did you spend World Vegan Day?

TWO Maltes??!! My heart could stop from the cuteness! Animals are the best (by a distance) soul soothers. Agreed.
I spent Vegan Day inside with sore tooth achiness. Blah. But autumn pictures with sweet pups is a mood lifter for sure. :)
