Commence dramatic text post about dogs
Upon meeting up with Taylor, Lamour (my puppy standard poodle) and I were happily sitting and waiting when a group of older guys walked past me and one had the audacity to say "I feel sorry for your dog" not only was I not only was I facing the opposite direction so my reaction time was delayed but Lamour was happily jumping up and down wagging her tail.
This comment definately hit a nerve. I've had some people say "oh that is so wrong" or "why would you do that to your dog?" but this comment affected me the most. How about I feel sorry for the dogs that every day are poorly mistreated, starved, beaten by their owners, all the stray and homeless dogs on the streets, or dogs that are put to fight for human entertainment or just breed for money.
As I work part time as a dog groomer with my mum, I have seen some pretty sad things when it comes to dogs. Dogs that have been neglected for months and coming in for a hair cut once a year matter solid to the skin, infested with fleas and big sores and irritated skin. I have had dogs come in and probably with a mix of an inefficient diet and lack of exercise too over weight to stand up without their legs shaking and collapsing on the grooming table.
So the next time you want to make a stark comment direct it somewhere else because my happy dog that you see wagging her tail furiously and jumping for joy is nothing to feel sorry about. Every second person that she walks by she puts a smile on their face. End of over dramatic rant. Also Taylor and I decided some profits from our sales from our future clothes we are going to sell will be donated to the RSPCA as well and I couldn't be happier.
