How could you (dog's view) (warning -- real tear-jerker)

this one is a real tear-jerker but i think its a good eye opener to people who think that pets are disposable. This is a story from a dog's point of view:

Sad Poem. And too many people just can't be bothered to look for a loving home for their pet..it's just easier to drop them off at a shelter. Seen tooo many people come in and surrender their dogs, cats, or small animal, for just because.

Maybe you should print this out and stick it up on the board so those people could give it a read.

Yeah, I don't know why i thought I'd be able to read without kleenex. Thankfully they were close by!

I agree, this should be posted (with some extra so people can take them home) on that petsmart bulletin board.

I've read this several times and it makes me cry every single time. I didn't read it again this time, but I'm already tearing up.
