My partners best mate's girlfriend (got that? did it make sense, lol?) has a dog that is 20 years old. I asked how the dogs health was and she says this:
"He is the most stupid dog ever, you literally have to kick him to make sure he is alive. I kicked him so hard once because I thought he was dead, then he was limping around for ages trying to get sympathy"
I was so shocked. She then proceeded to show me videos on her phone of her poor dog. You see her slowly walk up to him and tap him hard on the head, and because he is blind and deaf he didn't see or hear her coming, so he jumped and fell over and had difficulty getting up. I said to her that her dog clearly is getting too old and that they are being very selfish and cruel by not putting him to rest to let him rest in peace and feel no more pain. She said:
"Oh my parents aren't going to pay to put him down, they said they payed way too much for him to get rid of him that easily".
How can someone be so cruel? So heartless? I just ... ARGH!
