all the time

Great story, and so so so true!

Who hasn't seen a dog like this.

People don't realize nor do they want to admit that a dog needs love , caring, and attention,,,, time.

SAd to see a pet thats not really PART of the family.

My Pop was a farrier in the Carmel area on the coast where you're just not a good parent unless your daughter has a horse, a riding habit, $600 riding boots, and riding lessons. Whenever a customer stopped calling for the horse to be shod, he knew the girl had a boyfriend. When she didn't, she'd start riding again and the horse would need trimming and shoeing again. The horse was just a toy to be enjoyed and then neglected when something more interesting popped up. Sorry for the bad pun!
