…to say I haven’t fallen off this flat earth of ours and that I hope to be back to regular blogging very soon. I’ve attempted to get a post started several times but nothing happens. I think I just don’t have the stomach for writing about pets being needlessly killed by people who are supposed to be sheltering them right now.
We’ve had to euthanize three beloved family members in the past year and I guess I just need a little break from writing about people who do it for a job, despite the proven, lifesaving alternatives available to them. If there had been any proven, lifesaving alternatives available to us when we’ve been faced with euthanasia decisions for any of our pets, we would have been all over them. I find I am grieving for the loss of my own pets and all the others whose lives were snuffed at so-called shelters – pets whose owners wanted them back, pets who were in between owners, pets who had the right to live and love and be loved.
I’ll be back. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe next week. I will continue to tell the stories of those who deserved so much better than to be put in the dumpster. I can’t bring them back of course, but I can raise hell about it. More.
