Saving Lettie from the no kill shelter was one of the best things I ever did. So when I saw this video today, I was laughing like a fool and had to share it.
It comes from Best Friends Animal Rescue out in Utah. These are the folks had a TV show on a while back that may return that shows how they're doing The Good Work by rescuing dogs from all over the country that are on "death row" because they were violent or mistreated. They are also the ones who took in the pit bulls from that disgusting Michael Vick's fighting house of horror Bad Newz Kennel. The dogs didn't all survive and now that low life is a Philadelphia Eagle, showing just how money talks and the animals lose out.
If you want my opinion, and since you are here you do, Michael Vick should be sentenced to cleaning out kennels for the rest of his life. Karma's a bitch ain't it?
I won't put those pictures up, they're too shocking. Needless to say, there are many dogs and cats that will be bought from pet stores, which means they most likely came from a puppy mill. Better to not support that business and give a pet a second chance.
One other link to share. If you really are thinking that you need a new friend for the holidays, hit up Petfinders. I did and found Lettie out in North Dauphin, PA at Angel Pet Rescue. I was bored at work and let me tell you once you get hooked reading the stories of these Dogs, Cats, Birds and even Horses, you may end up like I did - with a new friend. She saved my life more than once and if she'd tolerate another dog I'd adopt one. For now, we're a one dog, one parrot home.
Enjoy the video and adopt if you're going to get a pet. Make a day of it and take your loved one to meet the deserving dogs, cats and other animals at the rescue center. You'll be happy you did.
Oh and a style note. I know that the video blew out my formatting. I was going to resize it but I decided to leave it as it is. Its so CUUUUUUUUUUTE! :)
