Pets

There was a really disturbing photograph in one of the Sunday newspapers today of two pit bull terriers attacking a cow somewhere outside New Orleans. They were starving and despite being tossed in the air, sometimes as high as 15ft, they kept at it because they were desperate. The photographer flagged down a Highway patrol car and got them to shoot the dogs. It took two shots to kill one of them.

That is such a sad story. There was another one about a guy with his little old daschund dog that he'd saved and they were both in a tree and the rescuers came along and said he couldn't take his daschund with him, so he had to kill it because otherwise it would starve. That is just awful. Really upsetting. A little old dog, he could have carried in his arms, it wasn't going to live that long anyway. The man's just lost everything except the thing that was most important to him, his dog. And some stupid jobsworth wouldn't let him take it with him? I know there's loads of people to save, blah blah blah, but surely you could use your discretion? I don't know. It's just sad. I know there is no way I could have left Lottie or Tag (our doggies). I just couldn't do it. This is Lottie...

She wasn't lovely this weekend when she pulled my housemate's tupperware full of nuts off the kitchen counter and ate them all! She was farting all night, stinking out my bedroom, and then pooed nuts all over the garden the next day! I had to pay my housemate a tenner for the expensive nuts she'd lost!

Dogs are worth it though... aren't they?!
