You ever read something that just hits you in the chest? Words that move you so intangibly that it's hard to describe? Well, that just happened to me.
I was browsing this Great Dane message group that LuckyRescue recommended to me, and I read these words in someone's post. I think they should be printed and handed out to every new pet owner:

In the great words of Antoine de Saint-Exupery in "The Little Prince", you are responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.


WOW.

(And amen!)

So true, but now the question is, who tamed who? :D

Hope you are enjoying the group! I didn't read in detail, but it's seems pretty good.:)

you are responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.

Yes, my 3 feral cats concur and already gave me that message! :D

Yes Lucky, I am enjoying the group immensely! A wealth of info on Danes- including a terrific Dane library!

THANK YOU so much for sending me that way!!!!!!!!!
