Re: PICTURE POST!

That's not my point--the guy in that made up story did have an option. He could have found a home for his dog or asked the kennel to find a home for his dog. Instead he leaves the dog there for potentially years and the only way the dog can have a home again is if the guy dies. I'm sure you wouldn't leave your dog in a kennel for years because you might get to have her again some day.

Re: PICTURE POST!

Hell, I wouldn't put her in a kennel in the first place. Not unless all of my friends and family suddenly vanished off the face of the planet leaving me no other choice. Kennels are jails. Jails for innocent animals who've done nothing but in some cases be inconveniences to their masters. They're preferable to letting an animal roam the streets or countryside, but they're not anything to applaud. I knew a guy who once bragged about leaving his dog in a kennel while he took his girlfriend on some whirlwind tour of the American West and California. The guy positively bragged about it and beamed about not having to take care of his pet the whole time.

Why did the guy even have a dog in the first place?!

Of course they never knew what happened to their masters, they are dogs. It's not like explaining it to them is going to make them understand.
They understand their owner is gone. Dogs form emotional bonds with their owners. Take that owner away suddenly and they never return, and that makes for a sad situation.
Yes but you're lamenting that the dogs didn't know what happened to their masters.
and those poor animals given to new owners, never knowing what happened to their masters.
It's true, though. All they know is their old master is gone. They don't understand what happened.

Re: PICTURE POST!

So how it's different for them if their owner is killed in Iraq, got run over but a school bus in Cincinnati, or simply died of old age?

But it doesn't matter: bottom line, the "story" is a piece of fluff intended to rouse the spirit of people at home about a meaningless, continuing war in which soldiers are killed by the hundreds and civilians by the thousands.

And all that some people think is about a non-existent pet and go "aww that poor dawggie". Bah.
