Animal Issue

Saw this on face-book today. It really saddens me that there are people in the world that abuse their animals. I'm not saying all animals are equal, but if you have a pet you should to take care of that pet. 
By the way, Budde, those that look after neurotic/mental animals are the best kind of owners.
Here it is... 
I died today. You got tired of me and took me to the shelter. They were overcrowded and I drew an unlucky number. I am in a black plastic bag in a landfill now. Some other puppy will get the barely used leash you left. My collar was dirty and too small, but the lady took it off before she sent me to the Rainbow Bridge . Would I still be at home if I hadn’t chewed your shoe? I didn’t know what it was, but it was leather, and it was on the floor. I was just playing. You forgot to get puppy toys. Would I still be at home if I had been housebroken? Rubbing my nose in what I did only made me ashamed that I had to go at all. There are books and obedience teachers that would have taught you how to teach me to go to the door. Would I still be at home if I hadn’t brought fleas into the house? Without anti-flea medicine, I couldn’t get them off of me after you left me in the yard for days. Would I still be at home if I hadn’t barked? I was only saying, “I’m scared, I’m lonely, I’m here, I’m here! I want to be your best friend.” Would I still be at home if I had made you happy? Hitting me didn’t make me learn how. Would I still be at home if you had taken the time to care for me and to teach manners to me? You didn’t pay attention to me after the first week or so, but I spent all my time waiting for you to love me. I died today. Love, Your Puppy

I guess that's why I like animals better than people.

I have not been without a dog since 1976 and I don't know if I've actually picked one out myself. Some of them have been insane. A couple have been incredible. All have been interestng and mostly fun.

Gorges, At least with an animal, you know where you stand. Reminds me of the joke about the dog, the wife and the car trunk. I'm sure you've heard that one. Thanks for stopping by for a chat.
Budde, I've not been without dogs or cats since I was a wee lad. Always a stray or a pound pet. All have needed forever homes and were glad to be with me. Seems like they all are unique in their own way. Thanks for stopping by and chatting.

All comments are appreciated and bring a smile to my face. Thanks for following me.
