    I was already in a bit of a humdrum mood before I read this. Reading that just made me feel ever so sad, and I do feel like crying. I had goosebumps while reading it. I am not much of a people person, so it makes me sad when people don't try and consider their pets. The only time I have had to have my dog put to sleep was because he had cancer, and we took Attila to the vet to get his vaccinations so he could be flown interstate because we were moving. We unfortunately had him put to sleep before we moved...it was a devastating time.

    I just logged onto DOL and noticed an update to the Rosie thread there. Rosie has been found finally! Great news.

    Humans will always be the most cruelest being on this earth. I adopted my baby molly at the age of 2 1/2 years & this is very much her story - family didn't want her anymore, her cost of living was more than they could afford , , so she was surrendered the pound. Then i met her & she has been my heart & soul ever since. I hate to think what may of happened to her if i never came along... My heart feels heavy after reading this story, but i try to do my part by suggesting to people i know searching for animals to head to the pounds and shelters, even if we can just save one more from such fate...

    Oh my goodness. Tears upon tears. I work at a no-kill animal shelter, I still am deeply disturbed by the way in which people can surrender their dogs and not even look back. The day that I am no longer upset by this is the day that I know I am no longer fit for the job! ADOPTION, THE ONLY OPTION!

    OMG! How could you? This made me sad, honestly. It's so sad to think that there are people like these.

    That's so true, Kuri. I also suggest people asking for the cheapest breed to adopt rather than buy one. Come to think of it, they don't just save money from buying, they even save a life.

    I was basically crying from the start I knew where this story was going. Its even sadder because of the ignorant people that allow these story's to be written. Its made me realise I need to spend more time with my own precious puppy. It is hard being at work or uni all day to find the motivation to take her for a walk to the park at night.
    Thanks for posting the story though.

    A no-kill shelter? Sounds fantastic, but how does that work, in a practical sense? This is going to come off as callous, but how do you deal with the dogs that nobody wants to adopt? Wouldn't that get cost-intensive pretty quick?

    I ask because I genuinely want to know how that works: if it can be set up more often, I can only see that as being for the good.

    I'm in tears as I've just recently lost my mate. And when it mentioned the needle I was gone,
