Hello, all you Princess devotees. The Princess Consort here stepping forward to give my blushing bride a day to catch up on paperwork. I wish I could be funny and glib today. But I can’t. I saw something today that tore my heart out and I have to share it with you all.
During my career as a journalist I was exposed to some pretty ghastly things. I was witness to the horrors that people will inflict upon each other. I saw the devastation and death that nature unleashes on us. Through all those years I was able to compartmentalize those images so I could objectively report the stories. But I could never do that with stories that involved animals suffering. I guess I never considered it a failing. I’ve always had immense admiration for people who rescue and foster animals. There is a special place in Heaven for those kind souls.
That’s why I urge you to visit this blog today.
There is something so sad about feeding cheeseburgers and chicken to that little pup. It’s nice to think the last moments he had were spent with someone who cared for him and showed him tenderness.
If you’re a regular reader you know that our English bulldog Tilly came to us from a bulldog rescue group a couple of years ago.
Bach was a big, sweet Giant Schnauzer. If you’re not familiar with the breed I can tell you that they are smart, strong and can be jesters. We had him for a very short time before he went to a good (forever) home and took a small part of my heart with him. Here’s just one place where you can find out more about Giant Schnauzer rescue.
So what’s the point of all this? You’ve all heard of the shady dog breeders and puppy mills out there. Dogs that should never be sold are being dumped on the marketplace. If you’re considering a dog (or cat, or horse, or…) please put some thought into a rescue. You’ll be taking on a challenge but what you’ll get in return can’t be measured.
Sorry I’m not funny today. I’m going to take Tilly for a walk now. The Princess will be back tomorrow. Thanks for sharing your time with me.
