Right now I am both angry and saddened by yet another lousy sign of the times.
Someone posted a notice on our bulletin board here at work on behalf of a friend. The friend very recently lost their job and their house and has to move the family into an apartment. The posted problem is that they have two three-year-old labs that have been together since birth, and they simply cannot take them with them. They really need to find someone who will take both dogs, which will be as easy as finding a diamond ring at the city dump.
The posting includes a photo of the dogs, and they are truly beautiful animals. I would gladly take them but I can barely afford the two dogs I have now.
The whole thing is heartbreaking, and I'm sure it's not an isolated occurance. It just really sucks big ones that things like this are happening to innocent animals, through no fault of their own or their owners. I feel so helpless...
