Animal Lovers

The English are a nation who seem to love their pets more than their partners! Who do you see overseas feeding their breakfasts to the stray dogs and cats, or setting up donkey sanctuaries and animal rescue centres at home? We adore our furry friends, they aren't subjected to our stiff upper lips, we can love them unconditionally without worrying about all those embarrassing displays of emotion!

Well. If you've ever been to the Parisian cemeteries, then you'd see loads of black-clad elderly ladies feeding the feral cats that live there. Plus, Parisians love their dogs. As do Americans. Although Koreans and Chinese less so, but then they don't keep pets, just domesticated animals I don't think you can single out Animal Loving as peculiarly British, or an Icon
