When I look up at the moon and wonder if God looks over the helpless and lonely-I think of the dogs I look after in a shelter. The face of a dog who has been hit by a car and now only has three legs, yet he is so excited to see you’re there to see him and take him for a walk. There is no pity for their situation, no sadness in their eyes, only love. To me, seeing animals willing to forgive abuse and neglect and injury, and to remain open to love, is so humbling and sad. Sad that there is not enough love for people to take these animals in and care for them the way they deserve to be cared for. Sad that people cannot look into the eyes of a forgiving animal and see the hope and love they bring. Does God see this? And will God help the helpless and innocent?

My Dog is the saddest thing I owned, my Dad used to pickup injured or astrayed dogs that my brothers and I now refer as family memories; them and their injuries funny how they moved about in their handycapped twisted ways but they all were faithful and loving even if they had been abused. Then one day i decided to get my own Dog, got him for $75.00 a pure (pedigree and all) chow-chow (food in china about 500 years ago, you know?!) beautiful and not vicious at all!! named him “tylo” after my husband’s favorite childhood movie (about a dog that had been granted to be human for a day) and now I have this dog in a prison(my house) I leave him all day alone, watch his behaviour via internet from work , he is lonely sits by the door most of time , sleeps 78% of the day since I’m too tired to walk him when I come home at nite (my husband and I carpool) and yet he’s there…old faithful, it’s sad, sad how we turned animals into possessions and victims of slavery.
