Dogs are farking awesome and humans that hurt them should be castrated and branded.

The branding should be done on their faces so that everyone knows what they did.

The castration would be done just because it is farked up.

Years ago, one of my cats tore through a screen and was missing for three days. I spent the whole three days walking the neighborhood calling him, putting up signs, crawling under bushes to look for him, checking the pound... nothing. Then I got a 3 a.m. call from my neighbors down on the ground floor. "We think we've got your cat. PLEASE COME GET HIM NOW!"

See, Iceberg Slim had never seen stairs (or been outside) in his life, and was unclear on the concept of multi-story dwellings. So he found the right apartment to come home to, only on the wrong floor. Turns out the people down there had a little dog-door insert for their sliding glass door, so Iceberg slipped right in -- and was immediately cornered in the bathroom by their terrier.

As soon as I appeared in the bathroom doorway, he let out a piteous wail and literally *leaped* into my arms -- right over the dog. (He also pissed all over me, but, well, he'd also never met a dog before.) He didn't usually like to be picked up, but he wouldn't let me put him down for an hour. He just clung to me purring and nuzzling.

I'm pretty sure that was gratitude.

/I had to finally put him to sleep a month and a half before his 20th birthday. Saddest day of my life. No one has EVER loved me the way that cat did.

My Shih Tzu's, Kira and Pongo, (brother and sister, actually), started out with some lady who thought they were cute, kept them for a while, but when she was going to have a baby, she gave them to my Mom. My Mom loved and adored them for 8 years, then she got sick and died. They lived with my step father and (half) brother for a year or so, then my step father died. I moved them and my now destitute, disabled and diabetic brother in with me. Those dogs stayed with Chuck all day in bed, Kira would cuddle under his chin, and they did what they could to comfort Chuck. Then Chuck died after a year with me. So those two friendly, smart, adorable dogs lost two Mommies, one daddy and their Chuckie. They got me now, and they have me wrapped around their little furry paws. Gotta take care of Mom's dogs. I do my utmost to spoil them rotten. At 13 for Kira, and 11 for Pongo, they are begining to make their transition to being walking vet bills. I don't care. They are the most awesome dogs ever, Kira the Diva, and Pongo the Stud Muffin. Later this year they'll go up to my hobby farm with me when I retire, and become my froo-froo farm dogs. I'm sure they'll do their best to keep the bears away.....

twomutts: This fearsome brute is Rufus. He's half American bulldog, half Shih tzu, which makes him a bull shiatz. Not sure what his former owner did to him, but he has a definite distrust of women, but he's great with kids. I do know she tore out his inner eyelid with her fingers because she didn't want to pay for a vet to have it removed properly (he had some sort of infection).

His sister is at the same rescue facility where I got him, and she looks almost identical to him. Sadly, she is so messed up she'll probably never be adopted by anyone.


What the farking fark is wrong with people?    Everytime I hear these rescue stories I just realize that at least 30% of people walking among us have to be complete and utter sociopaths.

Cute dog, BTW

A year later, I adopted my rescued girl's foster brother, who was all over me with kisses when I got her.

I brought her with me. It was along ride.

I was curious if she'd choose her old foster daddy over me with, "Well that wa snice. Thanks for bringing me home again."

It turned out that she was very familiar with the nice people and their home and gave them lotsa kisses.  But she stayed near me.  They were amazed by how much bigger and healthy she was.

Brother and sister romped like old times.  She had no idea her life was changing again. He was still happy to kiss anything that moved.

When I took her brother out to the car the rescue folks all marvelled that she just stared at the door until I came back through it.

I had my answer.  She lubs me.

The new little bro lubs me, too.  He still pushes her out of the way in jealosy.

It amazing how fast they will adjust to new home.

Baroness, our big, dumb, goofy rescue Great Dane.  A guy bought her as a 3-mo-old puppy & threw her in his backyard.  Never did anything with her except put out food & water in the morning--no shelter, no toys, no interaction with another living thing for 9 months before we rescued her in late November.   She was terrified of going into the house the first time--took us over an hour to coax her in.  We've been working with her for almost 6 months and now she follows us all over the house, loves being around people, and plays well with other dogs.

Found her after she'd been heavily abused by her previous owner and been found in a duffle bag on the side of the road. Best dog in the world and I'd love to throw the previous owner in a duffle bag and toss it in a cement mixer.

Rescue dogs rock. I've had fantastic luck with all our rescues. I swear they do feel gratitude.

Yay for resues!
All our dogs, and there are plenty, are either pound puppies or owner surrenders. All of 'em are awesome in their own ways and really do seem to be grateful for getting a 2nd or 3rd chance at a happy life.

Its a one-eyed dog, and its eye socket looks like that because it contains no eyeball.
