I find myself just sick with sadness today. I woke up and checked Facebook and saw that two friends are trying to find homes for abandoned dogs they have found. The past few week have been full of similar posts on numerous sites I follow. To top if it off, some one posted a picture of a dog with the upper part of its face blown off. It was the result of kids putting a high-powered fire cracker in it's mouth!! I can never unsee that image and I have been thinking about it all day. I know that sometimes people cannot keep the pets they have brought into their lives. I will not condemn anyone who needs out of the life-long commitment they agreed to when they brought those pets home, but why the abuse? Why the sheer abandonment? Why would anyone throw away life so easily. God gave us dominion over the land and animals as a blessing to us. Why would we abuse that blessing so flippantly? You can probably tell how heartsick I am today. I am trying to remember all of the good people I have met on this site and others who give their time, give their money, open their homes to animals in need. Today I will have to hug my dogs and my sweet family who love them as much as I do. I will have to pray that animals abused are taken out of their suffering. I will have a very hard time not asking for those that harm them to begin suffering. I am not their judge.
Thanks for listening. Cindi
