Today, we're joining the Boys from the Bayou and M.K. Clinton in celebrating Remember Me Thursday. We lit a candle for today and you can as well if you click the link. M.K. Clinton wrote a fantastic piece about this organization and I certainly don't need to repeat her words.
Everyday, you see the stories of the dogs and cats who are in shelters with little if any chance for a better life. So many are euthanized because they aren't placed. I believe most if not all of them understand what is happening and it breaks my heart that they leave this world feeling unloved and unwanted.
I know there are purposes for having purebred dogs and certainly support those responsible breeders as well. Responsible meaning they take responsibility for the offspring they produce and do it for the improvement of the breed and their ability. The ideal purebred is going to excel at a specific job (think hunting, herding, etc.). Not everyone needs a specialized dog.
Many of us are looking for companionship; a friend. So many of these dogs and cats could be that friend if given a chance. I would love for people to at least CONSIDER adoption before they buy a from a breeder.
