Okay, that made me lose it.
In the past few years I’ve seen homeless men [often vets] with signs asking for help...with their dog loyally sitting at their feet.
Sometimes I gave money but more often, I bought a hot meal for the man and a bag of food and treats for the dog.
One guy, when I gave him the bag of dog food got weepy-eyed.
I had to go before I started crying, too.
Life is capricious and there’s always a chance it could be me on some corner, begging for food for my dogs.
Some jackass ratted out another guy who had makeshift trailer attached his beat up bike, in which he hauled and housed his Rottweiler.
They claimed ‘abuse’ and took it from him so it could have a “better life”.
The dog was well fed and healthy looking...much more so than the guy...and it obviously worshiped him
He was obviously feeding the dog *first*.
I hated those people.
That dog was all he had.
