It's a Cruel World

I'm watching Animal Rescue on my favorite channel, Animal Planet before my bedtime.

It's a story of Marty, a GSD. Marty has both his front legs inflicted with injury and was deprived of medical attention by his owner which could have saved his legs.

As a result, Marty has to endure untold amount of suffering for the past years as he could only crawl in pain until the injured front legs were almost detached from its deformed elbow joints.

Whilst the irresponsible owner was brought to justice for animal cruelty...

... but justice came too late...

... as Marty's condition was so bad that he has to be put to sleep to ease his suffering.

Dear God, when Marty comes running over the bridge into your arms, please give him a big hug and let him know he can now run free... free from this cruel, cruel world.

What a sad story. Aunty Diana just can't bear to even read about it and she's getting blurry eyes. She thought she saw a gleam of tears on your face too.

Hi, Hero!
I don't like to watch those tv programs. I always cry! Even when they have happy endings!
Sure is sad to know what happened to Marty.
Humans can be very cruel sometimes!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

First before I comment on this post, I just looked at the last post that I missed somehow. The glasses are awesome dude, you can wear the crap out of them. You are one cool dude!

Ok now on to this sad post. Mommy watches that all the time. She always cries but she feels like it is important to watch and for people to see how cruel animals get treated,it might help someone to help in some way. In a town nearby there was a news report that people are just abandoning their pets because they can't afford them and they are dying. We were so sad, but we are going to donate food to the organization that rescues them. People need to know so the good people can help.

Thank you for showing that.

licks and sniffs, Sasha
