Wouldn’t it be nice if every story we heard about regarding dogs included something warm and fuzzy enough to be used as a child’s bedtime story? The adoption of a lost pup, the rescue of an owner from drowing/ fire/ stroke/ whatever from his faithful canine friend—these are stories we all like to hear, and why not? They make the endless supply of darkness we see every day a little more brighter.
Plus, we like to make baby faces at dogs and scratch their ears.
Unfortunately, most of the news we hear about dogs these days has to do with violence—abandonment, dogs left to die of heat stroke, neglect, abuse… And then, of course, there’s dog fighting, which you would think be over and done with by now.
