I will miss your helicopter tail that never stopped wagging, your fake sneezes, you sitting on my head and your yelling foot stomping demand for chicken treats. I will miss watching you take in the morning sun and you bounding towards people you loved seeing.
Dogs and kids are both innocent, helpless, vulnerable and rely solely on us for absolutely everything. They love, trust, whine, have needs and should be treated with love and respect. Sadly, both are victimized daily by our species.
I don't do this to make friends, for approval or a pat on the back. You don't like dogs? I don't care. I do this to save dogs, and if this notion is unfathomable or difficult to understand, then I suggest you take a good long look at yourself in the mirror.
