Share on Facebook Share on Twitter A Craigslist ad began with the simple title “Free to Good Home,” with an opening paragraph that read “My girlfriend doesn’t like my dog, so I appeal to you,” the statement continued, “She is a purebred from a wealthy area and I have had her 4 years. She likes […]
My name is Max, and I am a boxer. This is my owner. She likes to be called “Mama”. When my human family tells me “….go see Mama,” I know I have to go see what she wants. I had other siblings, 11 of them to be exact. I do not know where they are now, but I do know my human family loves me and takes care of me, as I take care of them.
My human family is pretty cool. Actually, they let me lounge on the couch all day long,they give me baths when I am stinky, feed me when I am hungry, give me shelter, they buy me toys so I won’t chew their shoes or the furniture. They take me out for walks so I get exercise and take me to the Vet so that I am always healthy.
I also love those wonderful car rides. I have even become somewhat of a celebrity at my human sister’s school. I try my best not to bark too much but sometimes I can help it because I get too excited and I want to share my discovery or alert my family of danger, even voice my opinion on something I just might need or don’t understand. My Human Mom is very good at understanding what I am trying to say. She never beats me or hurts me when I am bad. They love me as I love them and they trust me as I trust them. They are my family.
I am not asking you to be like my human family, all I am asking is to please stop hurting my fellow friends. They are not to blame for your anger or cruelty you are giving them. They don’t deserve to be mistreated or abused. All they are asking is to be loved, respected and taken care of properly. If you can not do this anymore, there are places for free that can take them in-no questions asked. I promise you, you will feel much better about yourself.
So please think before you act. Walk away if you must. Animal cruelty is a crime, and you will be punished; it is also morally wrong. I believe it’s better to be known as an animal lover than an animal hater.
