Thinking of adding a dog?

I rarely pass along links such as these, but I feel this one is worthy of consideration before you add a dog to your home and family:

Saw that last week and was saddened/sickened to hear the "reasons" people gave. Hopefully it gets the message across that folks need to think through the decision of bringing a puppy into their home before they actually do it. Thanks for posting it, Kimberly.

I definitely teared up watching that, and snuggled Roscoe really close. NOTHING could ever make me give him up, it absolutely sickens me that people can just dump their wonderful pets who love them so unconditionally.

I will pass this video along for sure, as I know plenty of people who shouldn't get dogs (who prob will at some point). Maybe this will make them think twice!

I can't watch the video I would sob for weeks. I have always had a soft spot for animals and it makes me so sad that they have no control over their fate. I am so protective of my guys and lately I keep the name Hav to myself as I so hate to see this sweet breed become popular. The love that my pupsters give me is so unconditional and I feel blessed to have them!

Thanks for posting this Kimberly. It amazes me how many people buy a dog without considering everything that goes into it. They buy a dog on a whim and it's sad and irresponsible.
