No Sam!

No, I’ve not gone crazy. I cannot handle the scene from ‘I Am Legend’ when Sam the dog gets hurt. I cry like a baby every time.

I find myself trying not to have a full on fit about this, sweet natured dog going through what she did.

When Will Smith’s character Robert Neville has no choice but to kill her, I die a little inside ~ no matter how many times I watch this movie. 😥

I simply love animals, and hate to see them get hurt. Movie or no movie, this is no exception.

What Is Wrong With People?

only the weak

“Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong.”

Today, I heard on the news there was a terrible fire in Manchester UK, which involved a Kennel for stray dogs. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the fire was started on purpose by a teenager. The fire has claimed at least 40 lives (all dogs), and counting.

I then went on to watch a programme called “The Dog Rescuers”. I’d never seen it before, but it disturbed the crap out of me. Two cases really stood out.

The first involved two pit-bulls and a husky. The owners had left them alone in the property for God knows how long, but the police were called by a neighbour. The police then had to call the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), because the dogs were fighting. Anyway, to cut a long story short, one pit-bull was pretty much OK; the other had a few scratches. But the husky… There was blood and holes all over him from bite marks, the underneath of one paw had almost become detached – it was an awful sight. No one thought he would make it.

His recovery was slow and painful, but he lived! I tell you, my heart was in my throat. I felt helpless, but obviously, I couldn’t reach through the TV screen!

The second was just as disturbing… the RSPCA was called to a property, where there were a number of dogs. There was also a shallow grave… When part of it was uncovered, a puppy was found – alive, gasping for air. They dug some more and found another puppy in the same predicament. The f**king ‘owners’ had buried the poor puppies alive because they were of no use to them.

Unfortunately, they little pups had to be euthanized to put them out of their misery.

All the owners got was the pathetic maximum penalty of six months in jail and a ban from owning animals for life.

What the hell is wrong with people?
