Strange title, isn't it? I just want to share some insights about this issue.
A few days ago, my Mom went to a government agency and saw this puppy in the parking lot. The puppy, a mix dog with beautiful light blue eyes, was playing with everyone that arrived to the parking. Mom saw that she was running with some children and was jumping around to meet everyone. In short, she was a happy puppy... because she was too young to know what had happen to her: she was abandoned by her former family. One of the agency's employees told Mom that the puppy was dumped there like two or three days before. Mom though of taking the puppy and find her a home, but the puppy was gone when she came out of the office.
I think that some people misunderstand the importance of having a pet in the family. And I will talk particularly about dogs now. For many people, human relationships are hard to maintain in peace for long periods of time. Some say that love declines through the years and even some people end up hating each other. So, many decide to have a dog for a reason: they need someone that gives them unconditional love no matter their looks or age; someone that waits for them even an entire day and receives them with a party; someone that fully trusts them and remains devoted to their master even if mistreated. Many people can't find some or even most of those characteristics in many human relationships; but they can find all of them in a single dog.
People that dump their pets, specially dogs, don't realize that they are throwing away maybe the only opportunity to have a perfect relationship in their entire life. Those people are throwing away a furry symbol of faith, devotion, forgiveness and, specially, love.
The people that dumped the happy puppy will never know the meaning of real happiness. I just hope that the happy puppy will find someone else worth of her.
I have been blessed, every time Mom moves from place to place, she always bring us with her no matter how difficult it have been for her and for us. We appreciate her unconditional love, and that is why I often think about this issue.
Can you, my friends, share your thoughts with me about this issue?
