Total RANT ahead.
It seems that evil happens every day to our beloved pets. The tragic story of Bear Bear was so awful that it brought a community together to seek justice. Sadly, stories like this are all too common.
The photos below are of Muppet, my cousin Jennifer's dog. On August 16th, Jennifer opened the door and found this...Muppet with an arrow through his body.
Now remember, Muppet is a tiny little dog and was in his yard. Why would someone do this? They know who did it, but there is no proof. A 20 year old punk from down the road who has been known to practice with his bow and arrow. Of course, the fact that his mother agreed to pay the vet bill, without any admission of guilt doesn't mean anything. Thankfully, this little guy is going to make a full recovery.
There is Muppet and Bear Bear...also, a beautiful Husky boy named Kobe that was tied to railroad tracks and died a horrible death, and a pitty dog that had his nose hacked off. These are all just recent stories, but they are not the only ones. There are hundreds and probably thousands of dogs and cats out there who are tortured and abused each day; killed for pleasure.
I do not understand this world today. Women who smother and kill their children...people who go to their work place and shoot coworkers...and people who kill helpless animals.
Stupidity, yes. Evil--you betcha. Now, I know that there are readers of many different faiths and beliefs on the dog blogs. We are brought together by our love for the animals in our lives. We share stories and heartaches. And whether we are simply crossing paws or down on our knees in prayer, we are there for each other. I am so thankful for each and every one of you.
This is a place of encouragement and laughter, heartache and understanding. Whether in the same town or across the world, it takes only the typing of a blog to bring us all together in one place. I wish there was some way to hug each and every one of you, to stroke the furry heads of your best friends and children...
I was so angry today at reading the horrors being committed...and yet now, that I have "talked" it over with my dear DWB friends, I feel a comfort. An ease that there is understanding at my anger. How amazing is that!
You all are the best people in the world. I am blessed and thankful to be part of this community. And I urge each blogger to never take for granted the pawsomeness of our DWB friends! Take the time to comment and let the humans know that it all matters...that WE as a community matter!
Thanks for taking the time to listen. I will be down on my knees in prayer for each of you, your pets, families, and to the ones that we have lost.
