I could just cry.
I think about how those of us here keep our dogs, and it makes me so sad that we seem to be in the minority. I am sick right now and barely slept last night, but set my alarm to 6:30 so I could feed Hans on time because he vomits if I don't.
I look at him all the time, I make sure he is clean, exercised, fed the very best, and I adore him. I miss him when I can't be around him.
I simply can't imagine taking such a noble, intelligent animal and keeping her on a heavy chain in a dirt pit, using her for repeated breedings. Makes me feel nausea. Really.
