#WednesDogDay! Every Wednesday I plead with people to adopt, rescue, love your dog. And this goes for all animals.
Why? Because we have an over domesticated animal crises. Over 1,200,000 puppies are born each day around the globe.
Spay and neutering for most people in different states and countries are an extreme cost. Thankfully we have here in Colorado many non profits offering low costs and education about feral cats, found lost or abandoned animals all supported by other animal lovers, who wish to rectify the growing population and most horrific outcomes.
This puppy was rescued and grew into a loving dog to a caring owner.
Abandonment – Kept in a backyard with a steel chain that has burned their skin in the hot summer sun – dumped off in some remote area, as if a dog can fend for themselves. Last taken to a shelter that kills, possibly the least cruel.
Dogs as chickens are shipped in cramped crates to China, as food. The grueling pain this causes dogs, from crating till their final death, after being skinned alive, is another human abomination. We Humans are the cruelest creature upon this Beautiful Earth.
The benefits of Dogs:
- Service dogs for those who are depressed, PTSD, TBIs, CTE, any human dysfunction, including falling down, a dog will help a human to their feet and stand by their side
- Always accepting of human moods
- Never holds a grudge
- Will not BLOCK you on social media because of a misunderstanding!
- Never judges Human’s behavior
- Will chase a ball – run for a stick and bring it back until the human is tired, and your dog will still be by your side
Fact: Dogs evolved from the Wolf, a great documentary one can stream on their computer is, “Man’s First Friend.” This documentary highlights how the wolf potentially befriended a human, offered loyalty and protection. This documentary displays the evolution, how each dog emerge into their particular breeds in every continent. And what benefits each dog breed brought to their human handler.
Consider Fostering abandoned or at risk for euthanized dogs. You can always add a cat for company and playful times. While you work, they keep each other company, might clean your home and you come home to the greatest love – tail wagging butts and a loving cat wishing to be picked up and nuzzled.
The benefit of cats:
- Their Purring helps control anxiety and panic attacks
- You do not need a yard or plastic bags from their dumps
- Loving – playful entertaining
- Dogs and Cats are great napping buddies on a small sofa cuddling while keeping you warm and loved
Personally, I am on a rescue list for the next male Rottweiler from another state. It has been 5 months without a dog, which has been the longest in my adult life living without my Best Friend – My Dog!
Pongo shown here is my friends’ Rottie who past away a year ago. Rottweilers have a rich history, bred by Romans to herd cattle for the Gladiators’ meals during war times.
And Rotties are truly LapDogs!
A Dogs’ Quote:
“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.” – Henri Nouwen –
