I cried when I read this. It is so true. So many people throw away pets for their convience. We have 5 dogs and 2 cats. We have always been a family that ends up with hard luck cases. One cold, snowy Jan. day a stray dog showed up at our barn. She was begging for help. She was due to have a litter of pups. I made a place for her in our hay room and she immediately laid down and had 7 puppies. She had a collar on but no license. Well after 1 week, she was very sick, our vet wasn't sure why other than the fact that she wasn't in very good physical condition and we eventually had to put her to sleep. We bottle fed 7 pups, raised them, found them all homes and kept one for ourselves. She died of old age at 12. If people would just realize what some of these animals go through. Anyone who wants to own an animal should read this story first. When you own an animal, it's for life.
