A pure vegetarian wished to keep an Alsatian dog as a pet but he was wondering how he could have the heart to feed it with meat every day. He started feeding it only with vegetarian food. Jimmy slowly began liking the food and still he maintained perfect health and strength. In a few months, Jimmy made it a habit to wait for the prasad after the puja and eat it with a relish. This caused a surprise to all the pet-keepers. By practice and training, man or animal can develop good habits. If a dog can do that, why not man?
