Please spread the word

Pete will get killed in two days from now. If nobody wants to adopt him by then.

Yahoo!/AP report about a site called 'Dogs in danger!'. This site runs countdowns on the lives of dogs in animal shelters across the USA. Those dogs are due to be put to sleep within a few days' time if nobody wants to adopt them. Dogs in danger! does not ask you to buy a dog; it asks you to, if possible, adopt a dog that has been abandoned by its former human for whatever reasons. If you cannot keep a dog, maybe you could consider donating a bit to help save those dogs' lives.

I've got six pets myself. No animal deserves to die just because some §@!*%& human doesn't want to take care of it anymore.

Damn, I'm crying..

Stray dogs can pose lots of problems and be threats to people (particularly if they're not regularly fed and caressed - they afterall are highly social animals) and traffic, but the way we handle it over here is that even dogs nobody wants are given the dignity of living at the shelter till they die. There are many people who like pets but can't keep a pet themselves because of time and / or space restrictions, so they "adopt" a pet by e.g. visiting it / playing with it / taking it for a walk every other day.

What is pink? A rose is pink

By the fountain's brink.


What is red? A poppy's red

In its barley bed.


What is blue? The sky is blue

Where the clouds float thro'.


What is white? A swan is white

Sailing in the light.


What is yellow? Pears are yellow,

Rich and ripe and mellow.


What is green? The grass is green,

With small flowers between.


What is violet? Clouds are violet

In the summer twilight.


What is orange? Why, an orange,

Just an orange!
