I hate this part. UGH!

I hate days like today in rescue. WHY?? Because someone was a total asshole to a dog that it made him not mentally stable and who pays the price??? the dog! Oh and the kid with scratch and bruise on her FACE!


This is the part I wish I could avoid but when you take in stray dogs this happens sometimes. As my dog warden has said dogs are always in the shelter for reason. The reason could be because the owners are stupid and just didn't take care of the dog or pay attention to the dog or because the dog is well not adoptable. Sometimes people don't want to deal with the "issues" their dogs has and so they just let the dog RUN..... so that is how I end up with the ones that can't be adopted out. 90% of the time the dog is able to be trained and adopted but I can only give so many chances and when the last chance resulted in a KIDS face being injured, there are no more chances. Next time it could get an eye or scar a kid and I couldn't live with myself.

UGH! I hate this part of rescue... so don't mind me I will be crying the rest of the night because people suck!

Some days really do suck in rescue. But every day you make a difference, even if it is only one dog at a time. (((HUGS)))

It's tougher everywhere right now. Not that it makes it better, but it does mean you are not alone. ;)

I am sorry to hear Amy; I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Totally sucks! I get sick to my stomach just thinking about it... it is hard when there is nothing you can do and it makes me physically ill when I can't help them.

Amy... was it Dante? I guess it does not make it any easier no matter who it was. This is such a brave and difficult thing, I am so proud of you for making the toughest decision. Nobody works harder or tries any more than you do! You ARE helping, even in this hard time. Giving a troubled dog some peace and keeping people safe IS helping!! It is the kind of helping that most people don't have the guts to do. Big bear hugs to you!!

No wasn't Dante. Dante is actually with another rescue that wanted to work with him.

It was a dog named Dover ;-(
