Not sick jay. I have two very young girls. You tell me the difference. Because a kid can tell you what happened?
I realize some people haven't been brought up with animals. A dog to so many lives outside and comes hunting once a year. If you have been brought up your whole life that they are just animals, and you have never known the unconditional love of an animal, than you can never know the deep connection that can develop between an animal and a human.
My last dog, I adopted when she was 8 years old. She was a puppy mill dog. Don't tell me they don't remember life in hell as she was the most gentle dog I have ever known and followed me around to make sure I was never going to leave her. All she wanted like all souls, was to love and be loved. She couldn't resist saying hi to people and didn't understand why some people couldn't be bothered with her. Especially people from foreign countries who are used to animals running around rampant and were afraid of my gentle soul.
I understand why you would think it sick to compare children and animals, but I have been around animals since a baby. My children will always have animals in their childhood lives as well, and hopefully they will appreciate these souls as much as I do as more than just something to pet and put food out for.
And why Pit Bulls in caps? Because they are banned here in Ontario and aren't as cute as labs or poodles or...
There is a reason a 'Pit Bull' was the RCA Victor logo, why 'Petey' from the Litlte Rascals was a Pit Bull, why when old family ads that used a dog in their add campaigns used Pit Bulls. Because they weren't put on this earth to be guard dogs or protect your drug stash. They are great family dogs and very good with children.
Because these dogs were bread to fight that is ok? You don't think from the images you see of these abused animals that they don't feel pain? Before they were old enough to fight they were a cute little puppy that just wanted to play and have their belly rubbed. I am sure many of these dogs never knew that love or the joy this earth could hold.
I don't expect you to understand where I am coming from, but think outside the box a little. Perhaps what society has told us all our life isn't necessarily the way it should be.
Life is Life.
Kind of a serious topic for this forum, but I am sure everyone has been thinking about it since the news broke that the NFL was re-instating him. Or even just when the news broke that he was being released.
