If You Only Knew How My Heart Breaks for You

Paw Print copy

They used to keep the back porch light on for you. For several months, you’ve been in the dark as soon as the setting sun darkens the sky. The days are growing shorter and now you’ll be in the dark longer.

There are mornings when I know you’ve made it through the night at about 8 a.m. Then there are the times when you let me know when I’m playing in the backyard with Azrael. Often a bubble will make it over the fence and I wonder if you see it.

When it got really cold after my trip in October, my heart broke for you because I knew you were cold. When it’s been raining I know you must not be dry but soaked to the bone.

I’ve often wondered if you have fresh water. I know you certainly don’t get feed even near the right way.

Your owners never go out in the backyard to see you, play with you, or even bring you into the house. Their kids are never in the backyard playing with you as kids should be.

The one time I saw you in person you slammed into my legs with so much puppy excitement, ran on into the garage, passed up sniffing the bison skulls I was restoring and immediately went to Azrael’s dog food. You were starving.

The time I saw one of your puppies it was so deformed from being kept in small confined space. It was the first time my stomach wretched due to the cruelty it had suffered in its short life. Another time two of your babies crawled out from under the fence into our backyard and I was able to grab one. Sadly, that puppy’s eyes instead of showing curiosity and love, only were vacant and scared.

The other night you barked for nearly an hour straight and then the coyotes started yipping and howling. I know most people would say I have no heart but you being attacked by coyotes would end your heartbreaking life.

You almost had a chance at a loving life. Almost. Then it was ripped from you because you were considered property. I didn’t let you down. My friends did not let you down. It was the law officials that let you down. It was the lawyers who let you down. I cannot do anything more to rescue you or else I might wind up in jail. It is because of those asshat officials that I’m constantly reminded that animal cruelty doesn’t mean a damn thing in Texas, especially small-town Texas. I’ve seen it before with hundreds of German Shepherds and Collies. All you are is a piece of property who is used to make a quick buck with your puppies.

Just know little babe my heart breaks a hundred times over when I see you’re in the dark at night. My heart breaks every time you bark because it tells me your still confined to a small pen or tied to a damn doghouse. All because of asshats and fucktards. I’d give anything to move far away from here, maybe even to Alaska, and take you with me. Because then you’d never have to know what the dark is like ever again.

 

Personal Outrage Note To the Dog Dumper

Warning Graphic Language!

It’s not often I rant, but today calls for me to rant.
This goes out to the frigging asshole who dumped their dog between Slaton and Lubbock, Texas. How dare you dump your dog? How dare you not take care of your dog? How could you not to even attempt to take it to the shelter? How even more careless of you to not at least even consider putting a bullet in its head if you didn’t want the dog anymore?  Either of those options would’ve been a helluva a lot better fate for your dog than what happened to it today.
Because of you being an asshole – I hit your dog today doing 75 MPH; the speed limit. By the time I saw something crossing in the road it was too late for me to even slow down, because you see your dog ran right in front of a motor home I was passing on the left, before slamming into my car and going underneath it.

My heart skipped more than a beat when I looked in my rearview and side mirrors because I saw your dog struggling on its side to get to the median. In that instant when I hit your dog its mind reeled and its heart stopped for seconds. In that poor dog’s mind, it had no clue what it had done wrong to cause its pain.

Then to make matters fucking worse when I was about to turn around to pull your dog off the road another car ran right over your dog causing its instant death. No more flopping. No more heart beating or breaths. Dead. Your poor dog was out of its misery, but you being the asshole you are made its life end in the most tragic of ways. It was more than my heart could take.
What an asshole you are to put my animal loving heart into that position.  What an asshole you are to not even care enough about your dog to give at least a better chance at a shelter for a life you never gave to it. You are simply a broken, depraved person without a heart.
Your an asshole. It’s people like you that make the world a terrible place. Your dog deserved better from you as its owner for however long it was in your life. Your dog deserved a chance at a life – not die under tires.
No dog deserves to be dumped on any road, in any part of the country or anywhere for that matter. Dogs have hearts as well that are big, loving and strong. When they are dumped by assholes like you-you are leaving them to fates they don’t deserve.
I wish there was a better word than an asshole to call you.
