(Buyer beware, not all the dogs are rescued and live happily ever after. I didn't realize this when I bought the book so my heart leaped when reading their stories and I got to the ones that had been euthanized. It's very heartbreaking to see such a beautiful living (when the photo was taken) being and know they are gone.)
I wish this book was in every library, school, store in the country, it would make a difference. I got my pooch from the humane shelter 5 1/2 years ago as a 2 month old puppy that had been tossed out on a freeway to die. She is my best little buddy and better than any human friend I've ever had.
Thank you for such a beautiful book!
I agree with the MANY who said that the people who REALLY need to read this book will NOT. Rather, those of us who are already aware of the huge pet overpopulation problem, the unnecessary deaths, and the need for spaying/neutering are the ones who will read this book and simply be reminded of the terrible situation many abandoned pets in America face.
And that is too bad.
Because the ones who NEED to read this book are the lowlife, pathetic excuses for human beings who dump their dogs at a shelter and never look back. The losers who tell shelter workers "I am moving and can't take him with me." And yes, even the heartless pregnant woman and her husband, who decide that since a baby is on the way, the dog is on the way out. These very situations happen a lot, folks. We live in a throwaway society that's simply to lazy to do anything other than abandon our pets without a care in the world. It is far too easy in our country to just pawn off out pets and let them be someone else's problem. These people deserve harsh punishment, and they should NEVER be allowed to have a pet EVER again.
I know I sound furious, and it's because I am. 'Furious' isn't even the word, as how I am feeling is even far beyond that.
This book is amazing, to say the least. I wish I could force every idiot out there who has abandoned or abused a pet to read it. But they just don't care enough. And I guess that that's the real heart of the issue.
Great country we live in, ain't it?
