    Better to light a candle for one lost dog than to curse the darkness of man's indifference. Saving just one dog won't change the world but it surely will change the world for that one dog.

    This totally had me crying at work! Note to self: don't read poems on this board while at work!!!

    It is really sad to know that people out there treat their dogs as a matter of convience instead of one of the family. I can't even imagine doing this.

    I've read this before and was sobbing, now I can't even bring myself to read it cos it upsets me so much. You can really imagine the dog feeling those feelings and wondering what the hell it did wrong.

    Wow, if that doesn't bring the tears you'd better check your pulse.

    Thanks so much, I know just who to forward this to. We know a couple who we've been friends with for years. They have two adult black Labs they've had since puppies but are now considering giving them up for adoption because they want to move into a Condominium that doesn't permit dogs.

    We were shocked and appalled when we learned of their intention and argued against their point that the dogs were well cared for and shouldn't be a problem finding a new home. Our point was of course that it's not the physical health of the animal that's critical here, rather it's the emotional damage done to the heart and the soul. It's our (my wife's and mine) opinion that once you damage the spirit, the deterioration of the physical health will follow.

    If you can raise them, then look into their eyes later and have no problem walking away, you were never a dog person to begin with IMHO.

    Oh dear that was toooo sad I couldn't finish reading it once I knew what was happening. I was hoping for the happy ending. That one definitely should have come with a warning.

    DoggyDad,

    I couldn't agree more with that sentiment. It fair broke my heart when I had to let my last foster girl go. I'd rather live in a tent with my dogs than give them up to anyone.

    Hubby and I always used to joke that in the event we should divorce we'd fight over who had the kids - each making the other take them but we'd both want to keep the dogs

    So, so true... It was one of the most diffucult things I have done in my life to say good-bye to Bono and Nóra
    I cryed, not just tears, but I was sobbing in the car on the way to the airport for an hour! I cryed more when I left my furry babies than my grandparents! But how could I not? The way they looked at me, theire eyes saying: "What? Are you going in the car? And I'm not coming with you!?" Oh, that just broke my heart
