    Mouseandchicken:

    on behalf of my dog, a rescue dog, and myself and all those other dogs who can't say this: Thank you. A million thanks and more.

    Thanks, don't get me wrong I like doing my part, being involved in the dog world is fabulous, i do sometimes get a bit disheartened, I think I was feeling that way when I posted that ridiculously post.

    I don't know how people like Shar do it to the extent they do. She deserves a medal.

    I also get an enormous amount out of it and have made friends for life.

    That is so sad, but unfortunately happens way too often I can't imagine ever giving a dog up, they are for life, no matter what. But so many people I know don't feel the same way and would give their dog away if it was too much of an inconvencience. It makes me so mad but what can you do apart from trying to change their mind.

    MAC you sound like a wonderful, caring person, please don't give up because without people like you there would be no rescue.

    I've completed courses and worked myself until I'm red in the face earning a pittance so I can gain more knowledge to do my part.I breed less than I'd like to and offer life time return and cash back on de-sexing and volunteer my time at clubs and shelters where I'm sick of taking in puppies from oops litters, or adults because they are no longer puppies, or they grew too big or they chase the children or they dig holes in the lawn and all the other reasons they come up with because they are ignorant, uncaring, selfish, heartless or just plain have their head in the sand.I can't imagine ever giving a dog up, they are for life, no matter what. But so many people I know don't feel the same way and would give their dog away if it was too much of an inconvencience. It makes me so mad but what can you do apart from trying to change their mind.

    Tears pouring here....


    Why I cry so bad is I know a family in sydney who are repeat offenders to this.
    They are trying for another baby I hear... so after their great dane is older I'm sure they'll get bored of it to. Keep your eyes out for a fawn people!
    HAHA and now they might be fostering (well I guess novelty will wear off about the time a new home is found). The thing I worry about is the beatings their dogs get.

    I cry because there is nothing I can do.. I cry because this is a true story daily.. pups being abandoned for SIMPLE STUPID reasons.. not enough time!
    well damn well make it.. I'll be working night shifts while OH works during the day
    If our dogs need training we'll PAY for it. I am soooooo sick of $$ being the excuse when they go out and buy expensive items, have their nails done etc..

    I guess I'm just different, my dogs eat before me.. my dogs get toys, treats, jackets, beds etc before a new outfit for me or whatever.

    I was sooo excited for Marmaduke to hit our screens.. but then re thought it..
    I feel sorry for the breeders out there now.. and all the BYB that will flood the market even more. Our breed/ your breeds all get ruined by events that us owning them should be enjoying

    This said family will be ecstatic "their" dog is "famous".. daaahhh! has been for sometime.

    Funny how they didn't know what a Dane was before they caught onto my dream breed.

    And what's sad about this, is it happens every day of the week thousands of times over. People that treat their dogs like this will meet their maker and their day of judgment will come.

    I think as people's life's get busier, they have a responsibility to look beyond their own selfish needs and realise that it's quite simple, know matter how much your children pester you or how lonely you are. If you don't have the time to exercise your dog and spend time with them, just don't get them.

    there goes half a box of tissues...hardly got half way, some people don't give the dog enough credit, for the amount of dogs that are loved, how many are not? I really feel for the dogs in that position, and sometimes for some people who physically can't take care of them, as much as some of those people want to love them.
