Default Neglect is Abuse Too!

Too many people think as long as they feed, water and shelter a dog, thatís good enough but itís not. Abuse takes many forms and neglect is one of them and probably one of the most prevalent. Living creatures require more than just the minimum basics to live. Sure, they can survive and exist but in what kind of condition, what kind of a life is mere existence?

The following letter says so much and illustrates so clearly that existence is not living.

This letter is inspired by a chained-up dog that I drive by every day. Nearly all dog owners understand that their pets need love, affection, exercise and veterinary care; that they need to feel like part of the family. But some people, and I mean very few, treat their dogs as though they were nothing but lawn ornaments.

I hate having to watch a poor dog tied to the end of a chain rotting away and suffering from boredom, loneliness and isolation. I mean really, what is the point of having a dog when all youíre going to do it is give it a miserable life? Dogs are social animals. When they are forced to live their entire lives chained and alone, they suffer from severe psychological, emotional, and behavioral effects.

ANOTHER STORY....................

A dog sits waiting in the cold autumn sun,
Too faithful to leave, too frightened to run.
Heís been here for days now with nothing to do
But sit by the road, waiting for you.
He canít understand why you left him that day
He thought you and he were stopping to play.
Heís sure youíll come back,
and thatís why he stays
How long will he suffer: How many more days?
His legs have grown weak,
his throatís parched and dry
Heís sick now from hunger and falls with a sigh.
He lays down his head and closes his eyes
I wish you could see how a waiting dog dies.

Animals should have the same rights as any living, breathing creature, not just 'basic rights'! All animals should be protected from being exploited and abused by humans and their abusers should be punished to the fullest extent that parallels to the abuse they have inflected upon any animal. Laws protecting animals are AS GOOD AS " N O N " and are in dire need of restructuring! The 'time' must fit the 'crime' in all cases!
