I know you probably didn't want ME to pop in here, but there is no such list as a list of dumb animals! Most animals are much smarter than the credit they are given, including cows (and George FLC!! ) The best mothers in the world are animals, and cows in particular. Have you ever seen an animal mother go off and leave her babies on purpose?
Everything you need to know in this life can be learned from a dog! 1) Live in the moment. 2) Run and play daily. 3) Love unconditionally. 4) Be loyal. 5) Greet everybody with enthusiasm. 6) Don't hold grudges. 7) Be yourself. 8) Enjoy life. 9) Sniff out opportunities. 10) Drink plenty of water.
What else do you need to know??? !!!
I've rescued donkeys (called asses by those who just like to say it) all my life, and I must say I'd rather rescue the four-legged asses than the two-legged ones anytime! They both bellow and release toxic gas, but never has a four-legged one asked what's for dinner and turned his nose up, or talked back to the hand that feeds him. They don't mind biting their children when they get out of line, and they teach their children to respect their elders. If they don't, they get a swift kick from Momma Donkey.
So, if we're voting, my vote's on the two-legged asses. But then again, we're not voting... are we??
