7.28.12 Good Dogs Start With Good Owners

28 Jul

I do not know who created this poster but I love it!!  I am not sure how we get the message out that animals are so influenced by how they are raised.  It is the same with children, you live what you learn.  When a dog is loved and cared for he/she grows into an animal that understands kindness.  When a animal is tied to a post all day, beaten, used as bait, starved, experimented on, or just plain neglected, the animal will not understand how to be in the world.  I know that I am “preaching to the choir,” because if you are reading this, you already love animals or you wouldn’t be following my blog.  Let us teach kindness everyday, and maybe someday, we will have all good dogs. (I can dream, right?)

(Getting on a plane now for the 22 hour trip back home. Can’t wait to see my zoo, human and furry.)

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

        You must have been north if the weather was wonderful! Although we have had beautiful days here – even if for us they’re cold 🙂

    I love that poster too – it says it all, and I have taken the liberty of saving it.
    Everything you say is true about how we treat animals, and hopefully the message will get through one day. As you say, we can dream – hopefully, it will become a reality.
    Have a good flight home, back to your zoo!

    Travel safely. Your zoo has been waiting patiently. ….well maybe not patiently, but they’ve been waiting!
