The Dog - Man's Best Friend? - Not for Everyone!

Wishful Thinking


We like to think of cute little puppies like Napoleon...


...or faithful friends like Jesse...


...or slightly larger puppies like Basil, whom we deeply love, and who are members of our families their entire lives.

Reality

(The Dog - Abuse - 06) Big Girl was found on the ground weighing less than the chain around her neck. She had clearly been starved—she was a pile of bones and had raw, mostly hairless skin with absolutely no body fat. A veterinarian later told us that Big Girl's stomach contained nothing but dirt, leaves, a piece of corn cob with two kernels on it, and a piece of dry, caked fecal matter. Big Girl had been left to suffer for so long that she had begun to decompose. Four different generations of maggots were eating away at her body. When we gently peeled her off the ground, she moaned. She could not see us or hear us, but we hope she knew that we were there to help her. We sent Big Girl off to heaven with kind words and a gentle lethal injection. We wished we could have ended her misery much, much sooner.

If these reality photos are disturbing, and you don't believe such things should be done to dogs, then set the proper example by not doing such things to any animals, and by not supporting those who do.  Stop eating or wearing animal products or supporting any activity that exploits animals, and tell others why you stopped.
