Having watched many of these heartbreaking youtube videos of dogs cats and other animals being rescued by kind people - and when you watch and see how pathetic they are at the start after majopr abuse at the hands of humans in the first place, it breaks your heart when the dog or cat turns to their saviour and licks them or cuddles up to them and share their thanks and love in gratuitude for being saved. Later when all fed and healed and time has passed to see them running around with the other dogs or cats and to see them back in good ehalth and so full of joy compared to before, truly makes me cry.
I donat each time to these various organisations as £50 is not much money but if enough people donated then thousands of animals could be / can be saved from the hands of appalling people who treat their animal as a commodity and not as a living loving creature who loves us in return - and it is beyond me how anyone could be cruel to any animal.
I am strict sometimes with my dog when she misbehaves and she will get a smack occasionally or even put in a nose guard to stop her constantly stealing food absolutely everywhere she goes, and she knows she is loved and cared for and sleeps on / in my bed with me and we cuddle up and while she tries to put her paw down and be the boss, she knows who really is in change despite her actions to the contrary... for as I tell her, she can be the boss any time she can open the door - go to the cupboard, get her food down and help herself - which clearly she cannot do, so therefore... I am the boss, the dad.
When I see how other animals are treated and how mine is so so spoiled, it does make me cry for how so many sweet and loving animals are so cruely treated.
