There would be times when you would come across incidents where a dog has been abandoned by a family. The reason may be because of an injury the dog suffered, a disease that he caught, re-location of the family because of job changes etc. If you divulge into the deeper details, all these are merely lame excuses. If you get a dog, remember he is family! And you don’t really shun a family member on the above accounts. It’s rather better to not have adopted a pet than to treat him as a commodity destined for the same fate as that of a tawdry fashion item. My nostrils flare when such gross news is reported. Please understand that it’s a beating heart full of love, loyalty & a friendship that you have adopted. There are responsibilities that you must live up to. Please, remember that you are the harbinger of joy and the elixir of life for the muted species.
You are the hope and he is the heart!
Some websites regard the following as the rules for dog lovers while others quote them in the Biblical lines as 10 COMMANDMENTS. Consider it as the voice of the dog.
