I read Sugar's http://www.sugarthegoldenretriever.com/ post this morning and I asked my Mom if I could write another blog for today. She said that is was just fine. It's something Mom and I have been talking about lately and after we read Sugar's post about shelter dogs and all that have lost their lives and all that are still waiting for homes, and leaving a candle lit for them, well this is what I think.....
I think humans have turned their world into a "Disposable World" because it makes their lives easier. Throwaway dishes, diapers, towels, napkins, plastic bottles, coffee cups and the list goes on and on. It does make it easy, but it also has serious consequences like over flowing landfills....clean up is expensive and there isn't any monies. It also creates a mindset with some people that nothing is much worth keeping. Like us four leggers. Thus, the need for shelters and dogs and cats waiting on their forever homes.
That is how we came to live with our momma is we were threw away. I had a soft spot that wouldn't close and my eyes are weird, Maggie had scratches on her eyes, and well Baby Gussie was a scary fright! WE were headed for the trash can (or life in the basement). I bet alot of you out there was in the same scary situation and then your Momma or Dad came along, and picked you up, cleaned you off and took you home. FOREVER.
We don't know what to do about this heartbreaking situation. We have shelters that are good, we have people who rescue, we have organizations that help, but it grows and grows everyday. I think until humans change your definition of disposable it will always be a battle that is barely won. Everyday there are pictures posted of the cruelty we as animals suffer at the hands of a race that is supposed to care for us, but everyday there are also victories won, and forever homes made. We have no answers, tonight we are gonna light a candle like Sugar said, for all those still waiting and for all those passed.
We are hoping this post did not offend anyone cos we loves you all.
