Location is backyard- used to be part of cow pasture- but it seems the green pastures are becoming a thing of the past.
(Old photo I took of farm and cow while on roadtrip back in school days. Meeting my cow friend pictured here is one reason why I gave up eating cow- and shortly after the the cow meeting, I met someone's pet pig- and I gave up eating pig. Pigs are really very intelligent and friendly- cows are curious, and can be friendly. Oh yeah- soon after meeting pig- I met someone's pet chicken- it was surprisingly very friendly and curious and followed people around- I stopped eating chicken after this meeting. The dog is a friend of mine who is smart and friendly too- I've been friends with dogs all my life- so have never eaten dog). The horse is a sketch I did not long ago for a painting I've yet to start- and probably wont. (The horse is the pet of the same person who has the pet chicken- I've been around horses forever- but never really became friends with any- not sure why- maybe because the ones I've met haven't been very friendly- but I never have nor would eat them. So unfriendly things don't go on my plate either). No time to plant a pig and chicken in this post, just have a cow, horse, and dog- e-i-e-i-o:

P.S. I don't preach vegetarianism- -what's right for me- maybe's not right for you- though... It's a weird weird world- who knows what's universally right.

Your narrative is funny and poignant. I'm not a vegetarian, but have family and a good friend who is, they'll get a kick out of this post.
Showing a picture of a cow in a meadow that once was, pretty much sums up the depressing loss of so many family farms, thank god for your little dog and he bares a striking resemblance to the cow-that's comforting anyway.
Beautiful sketch [looks like a finished painting], if the real thing isn't around- the picture works just fine.
I'm in awe of your strange and funny take on the theme.

Thanks Rrramone!

Thanks HW! Make sure they aren't standing behind a cow- or other large hoofed mammal- in case they do get a kick-
