Nothing says love like……..

I find myself inundated with images and stories about dogs in shelters waiting to find homes, before paying a breeder, please consider adoption, there are many wonderful dogs just waiting to be saved, and they just might be the best decision you ever made.

Since I feel that there are many wonderful breeders out there that are respectable and honest, I will say there is absolutely nothing wrong with them, just be sure you do your homework and get references. However with that said as I say consider that there are millions of dogs in shelters all over the globe, in every state or province, not all she;ter dogs come with baggage, Dolly the Pit Bull is a shining example of what love and commitment will do for a dog!

I originally thought that we would get our next dog from a breeder, and maybe we will but only if we can’t find our match at a shelter and I find it hard to believe that there is not one dog, thats is perfect for our family already and waiting to come home with us. I will keep everyone posted as to the search. We do want a Pit Bull, hopefully 1-2 years old that is happy and loves kids, so we will see, any suggestions?

I see the things that go on for animals in our society and it pains me on the deepest levels, we consider pets as disposable, they are not! We see them as a burden, they are not! we see them as a creature without feelings, incapable of “our” emotions, they are not! Elephants can cry years after the loss of one of their heard, they will pass by where their loved one died and roll the bones under their feet and cry, that is not emotionless.

Monkeys will cry over their dead babies, and refused to let them go for days, letting out the most heartfelt and pain filled cries of anguish, so much so that you want to cry for them. Animals are not meant to be here solely for our entertainment, they have the right to be, just as we do.

So to me nothing says love like going outside to collect your mail, only to return to a dog greeting you as if you have been gone for months, that’s love people. I remember when hurricane Katrina rolled in, thousands of people forced to leave their pets, One man took the shirt off his back and tied it to his dog and wrote his cell number with a sharpie on it.

When the dog was found, it was months later, the shirt was ripped to shreds but the number remained, it was called and the dog returned, they showed the reunion on the news and even though all that time had passed I have never, ever in my life seen a dog so happy to see his “Daddy”. so remember when you decide to open up your life to a pet make sure you can give them the commitment they deserve, and love them.

Nothing says love like a wet sloppy kiss from a dog!

don’t all those wonderful dogs end up like this

Your new best friend is waiting, check out those shelters for some exceptional dogs, cats, birds!

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
