Animals for Adoption
February 23, 2009
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. - Gandhi
Our Sis, being the animal lover that she is, is volunteering at the Humane Society in Pittsburgh to walk dogs. We wish she were walking us, but if she can’t be, we are happy to share her with dogs in need. She was really sad when she was reading the papers of a dog named Duke because under reason for surrender, it said that Duke’s family had gotten a new pet and the new pet didn’t get along with Duke! What? Throw out the old when you get a new? The new dog better watch out if the family gets tired of him too. Now, we don’t know all the circumstances, so perhaps we are being harsh, but it just made us sad too. Duke is kind of a cousin to us because he is part Akita, the big brother dog of the Shiba Inu. He’s also part Pit Bull, is brindled in color, and is just over a year old. If you’re in the PGH area, and are looking for an awesome dog, go visit Duke. You can read more about Duke and the Sis’s experiences at the Humane Society at her blog.
Lots of Luv,
