Guaranteed, you’ve seen a dog living like this. Most likely, you’ve seen it many times, in many different homes. I’ve seen so many dogs cooped up in a cage all day and they only go out to go to the bathroom. Why bother having a dog if you don’t love them? If you don’t run with them. Play with them. Lay with them. LOOK at them. Anything!
Now, i’m no adopt an animal commercial, but seriously, people should reconsider owning a dog if this is how they live their short life. You shouldn’t own a dog to OWN it. To tell your few acquaintances at work how you have a pure bread mini whatever from Germany like it’s a status.
On a related note, i’ve even been scolded for letting my dog run free around my yard, even if she doesn’t set foot near the road or attack dogs when they pass. I’ve had people come onto my lawn to return the dog as if she was lost (You know, ALL the way from the front yard and all.) People make me sick. I’m done.
(PS- The dog in the picture actually isn’t one of those dogs. That was a setup. Doesn’t he look so sad? Nope! I lied! But he can’t like that pink kennel!)
