So many breeds are "adopted" for bait dogs. They are promised love and shown terror, pain and suffering.
So many animals are euthanized every year because of US. WE are the problem. We are not doing the right thing by stepping up and changing what we see. We drive by the homeless dog on the street.
We walk by the kitten crying for her mother behind the office building.
We think that it is "not our problem."
If it isn't OUR problem...than who's is it?
If we aren't part of the solution than we are part of the problem!
"You came and picked me up from the shelter. You said you would love me forever. You misread my love for you...you thought it was like yours. But when you abused me my love was not like yours....
I still loved you."
"Each time you abused me.....I still loved you. Each time you neglected me....I still loved you. Each time you "forgot" to feed me..... I still loved you.
Each time you kicked me.....and when you left me to die.....I STILL LOVED YOU."
"You promised me that you would love me forever...not until you had a baby. You promised me that you would love me forever...not until you realized I needed attention."
"Now I am sitting in a cold shelter afraid to love anyone else....but I still love you.
That long hallway, it scares me. I see others go down that hallway, I hear the crying and I never see them again.
And I sit here, being scared, while everyone passes me and moves on....I still love you."
