Perhaps I just don’t understand people. In
, the senate has voted to overturn Proposition B, aka the Puppy Mill Law, aka SB 113. They felt we were mislead and didn’t understand the initiative as stated. Missouri
I have blogged on this topic before, so I won’t bore. But really. I do not appreciate the implication that I am an uneducated fool who cannot decipher the initiative..
I do understand the bill as written. Stripping out the “adequate cage size”, the “adequate water” and the “adequate food”, among others, is ludicrous. All about the money.
Then, a beautiful handful of a greyhound, who was adopted out, was returned. He bit the male authority figure. He’s not a mean dog at all, by the way. Just rambunctious and in need of authority.
Well, not knowing the facts, I can only offer my experiences.
Did I ever, in 6 years, think of returning her? Never! I made a commitment as an adoptive parent to care for her, to give her a loving home and to make her remaining years the best years of her life. The commitment I made meant through thick and thin.
Thick arrived at the end of her earthly presence. I dealt with poopy potty pads and urine stained hardwood floors. 2 destroyed orthopedic beds.
Through thick and thin. You agree to love them and care for them, then that is what you do.
And I was blessed.
I just don’t get people.
