I'm sorry. I just read LadyMiko's post about PETA and watched the Penn and Teller's video and I have to make amends for abusing my dog.
Warning, these photos are graphic in nature.
Here is Neena, named after that bitch at Petsmart who gave her a bath, the day I found her. She was so covered with fleas who were doing what they should be doing. Sucking the blood out of her. Yes, I killed all those 1000's of fleas.
I know I should turn her out on the street. Keeping her hostage in my truck is such a cruel thing. I hope she will forgive me.
I do let her out of the truck when we go home. But I live on a farm. What could a puppy find to do? Maybe she should do us both a favor and run off and save herself.
And with grandkids at home. They just chase her and are so mean, I think maybe somebody should call her a lawyer. Don't animals have rights now?
And now she is getting bigger and there is just nothing for her to do.
Shouldn't she be running wild and free? I mean her mother was running wild and free when she left her baby laying beside my truck to fend for herself at 3 weeks of age. Shouldn't she be sleeping under the stars or something?
Who would want to just lay around all day and do nothing?
My kids got to bring their toys to bed and they had snuggley blankets to lay in. Maybe that is what she needs.
She doesn't even have her own bed. Look, here she is sleeping with my 16 year old son. You know how boys are with their dogs. Their best friend. The one they tell all their secrets to.
PETA is right. Tomorrow when I hit the road, I'm just going to leave her in this parking lot. When she chases my truck down the street, I'm not even going to look back at her. She will understand it's for her own good.
