My mind immediately jumped to shelter dogs and how sad, lonely, and confused they must feel sitting in their caged rooms. Modern dogs have mostly been bred to be companions to humans so it must be especially heartbreaking for them to be stuck in these cold rooms filled with strange dogs and with no affection. My sister rescued a pug from a high kill shelter once and I remember her telling me about how the pug sat facing one wall and leaning against another with her eyes closed, almost like she'd given up. That image has stuck with me since then. So for all of you who have rescued a pet, Sunny and I thank you!
Sheesh sorry I didn't mean to get all sad Sarah McLachlan SPCA commercial on you! I promise I have a happy drawing coming up later today!
