If this were my dog no amount of cash for GOLD would do. And I wouldn’t have them laying on those hot metal steps. Felt a little sorry for this guy but you can’t judge one image and get the whole story. He may be very loved and well cared for and I hope that is the case.

How people take care of pets is a wide-ranging picture. Hell, how we take care of each other as humans is deplorable sometimes so we shouldn’t be surprised about some animals. Even though it’s no less cruel and brutal and wrong whether it’s a pet or person.

Some gold can’t be measured.

Animals are a responsibility that has as many interpretations as there are people taking care of or not of them. I love animals. I probably have spoiled a few in my lifetime. I get great joy from my family pets. And we gladly take care of them when they are away. My friend’s pets are just part of “The Boys” gatherings. Well, one of the dogs is a girl but she more than holds her own with the boys.

And they follow our lead. They get a little rowdy, loud and excited. Maybe some wrestling and then falling asleep in basement chairs. It’s only a matter of who gets to the good spots first.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I get to stay dry today even if the sky’s do open up again.
  • Pain gives pause. Well, maybe it insists on pause.
  • Only two days till I get to make my granddaughter laugh.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
