I can’t unlove you, I can’t unthink about you, I can’t unremember your touch!

When you drop off your dog or cat at a shelter, does it bother you that they may die?  How do you one day just decide to unlove your pet? Do you think they unlove you?

I watched a dog at a shelter once that sat with her head in a corner of that ugly grey prison of a room, she only looked back when I coughed, and she looked defeated, sad and lonely, she looked heartbroken, and that old Kenny Rogers tune I can’t unlove you came to mind, I though to myself, I think she misses her family, the family that gave her up because they had a baby, my favorite loser owner reason.

I watched a documentary on the effects on animals being abandoned, it scars the psyche in a deep and profound way, and yet we still do it to them, we create a disconnect that allows us the guilt free drop and run, I think about these animals sitting in a shelter wondering whats going on, and why they are there, where did mom go? Or why did dad stop loving me? don’t fool your self they feel all the same emotions we do. Love, fear, grief, joy, etc. So they must feel completely betrayed when that cage door slams shut and they accept that you are not coming back, Or do that ever accept that?

I don’t know I guess in a throw away society it becomes second nature to some, “the disposable pet.”

Think about those animals when you want to bring a pet into your life, be sure it is for the right reasons, and please consider a shelter or rescue dog first!

Thank you!


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!
