I raise and did breed rat terriers, so I almost became physically ill when I read that. They are the best dogs and if it was barking, it was more than likely trying to warn that man about something. I cannot begin to understand the behavior of people that I read about everyday.
Well, there was not much to the story... short and to the point. I can not tolerate any type of animal cruelty. It pains me to walk by these homes that keep their dogs in the backyard day in and out with the only attention that they may get is when the food or water comes. I have made a few friends walking to class everyday and I hope that my encounters with these animals helps their day as much as mine.
On the way to class, there is a beautiful doberman that comes to greet me at the fence. I always pet and talk to him on the way there and back. I think he waits for me. Then there is a neighborhood dog named Callie that is a treat to encounter as well. Just a fun, happy dog. Someone takes care of her, yet to figure out who tho! Also the blood hounds that squish their heads through the slats of the fence to say "hello" to me. OH, can't forget the pair of boxers that love to bark at me. There there are these two german shepards that are locked away in a kennel away from the house. They are in that thing all the time.... now that irritates the crap out of me!!!!
People who commit crimes againsts animals truly have some issues to be addressed and need help. I can't stand the thought of animals being hurt or abused and often times I stand out side and listen to all the animals crying out and my heart gets heavy. I know there are soooo many animals out there suffering and I wish there is more that I could do.
I also did not read link but I would like to give this man a beating. I will never ever understand what makes people like that do what they do. As I have said many times is I ever caught someone doing this I have a lot of pent up anger at these kind of people and would unleash it all to that person.
