The Heart of a Dog

I wish that the heart of mankind could be like a dog’s. Today my friend Steve Dale, who appears on WGN Radio, TV and writes a column is an animal advocate. The story he posted today shook me up in regard to a law President Obama had created to protect defenseless animals. Here is the story http://stevedalepetworld.com/u-s-will-support-killing-defenseless-animals.

It has made me crazy all day after reading it There is no reason to be able to go kill innocent bears and their cubs as they sleep or any other wildlife as the new administration wants to allow Whether this is to appease the gun lobbyists as Steve guesses, or to allow trophy hunter killers like #45’s sons, it is wrong on every level.

Animals love unconditionally.  They occupied the earth long before we did, so in my mind, they should have the upper paw. Their hearts are pure unlike those of mankind and it is obvious that the “man” who is in the WH, does not give a damn about animals, he doesn’t even have a dog or cat. There are 32 presidents, including President Obama, who had dogs in their lives. That means that ONLY 13 have not, in our entire history!  I am actually glad he does not have a dog because it would probably be treated poorly. I am only trying to illustrate that there are people who love to share their lives with animals and others who kill them for fun. While he is not a hunter himself, his sons are and I doubt he ever had an issue with it or his youngest son would not be posed for a photo shoot while sitting on a stuffed bear in an article that once appeared in People Magazine, let alone the gruesome “kill” pictures his sons have so proudly shared with the world.

I can only believe that karma will take care of this in some way soon. If you love animals like I do, please share Steve’s story with everyone you know and call your congressman or congresswoman today and demand this bill not be overturned. I cannot ever imagine killing a bug let alone an innocent animal. My dog Joy would never hurt a fly, she just wants to herd things around and play because a dog’s heart is better than man’s, especially the one in the WH.
