This made me very sad.

I died today. You got tired of me and took me to the shelter.

They were overcrowded and I drew an unlucky number. I am in a black plastic bag in a landfill now.

Some other puppy will get the barely used leash you left. My collar was dirty and too small, but the lady took it off before she sent me to the Rainbow Bridge .

Would I still be at home if I hadn’t chewed your shoe? I didn’t know what it was, but it was leather, and it was on the floor. I was just playing. You forgot to get puppy toys.

Would I still be at home if I had been housebroken? Rubbing my nose in what I did only made me ashamed that I had to go at all.

There are books and obedience teachers that would have taught you how to teach me to go to the door. Would I still be at home if I hadn’t brought fleas into the house? Without anti-flea medicine, I couldn’t get them off of me after you left me in the yard for days. Would I still be at home if I hadn’t barked? I was only saying, “I’m scared, I’m lonely, I’m here, I’m here! I want to be your best friend.”

Would I still be at home if I had made you happy? Hitting me didn’t make me learn how. Would I still be at home if you had taken the time to care for me and to teach manners to me? You didn’t pay attention to me after the first week or so, but I spent all my time waiting for you to love me. I died today.

Love, Your Puppy

This was on Facebook, I've copied and pasted it to my status, which I never do.

One pf my rescue crowd shared that on FB today. I just sobbed and sobbed. Guessed you might have seen the same when I saw the link, didn't want to look at it. sad

Thing is, often it's true. sad So you can't just close your eyes to it and carry on, can you?

Can you?

And sobbimg won't help these dogs. Tears mean nothing, action is everything.

Talking of action, who can I report a small scale puppy farm/backyard breeder to? I don't want to call the RSPCA, I'd like someone who would take appropriate action. Any ideas?
