Love dogs, wonder about people

We were watching the news tonight and they showed an almost grown dog that a person shot with a bow and arrow. They claim the dog growled at them. The owners of the dog left the arrow in the dog's chest/leg area and just broke the stick part off. The dog was like that for TWO DAYS and someone stepped in and called our local news and they went out and filmed the dog and took it to a vet. The vet did the surgery to take the arrow out free and is also going to board the dog with him for several weeks until it's healed.
The dog was something else. You could see the pain it was in and yet when people walked up to him with that arrow in his bloody body, the dog was wagging it's tail. A person shot that dog, it's owners didn't do a **** thing to help the dog and yet that dog still loved people.
Dogs are amazing, people on the other hand..........

Jan that is so sad! I too sometimes wonder about people. There is so much wrong with the world, sometimes it's overwhelming how bad people really can be.

What a sad story, it sounds like the dog will have a happy ending though. I bet thousands called in wanting to adopt him.
I too often find myself saying what the #@*! is wrong with people...

Hopefully those people are in jail and that wonderful dog will go to a deserving family that will take care of it. I hate to hear stories like that. You see it all too often now.

That is sad.....I think people are losing their compassion towards animals and each other.You see it all the time......

On our news last night,was the opposite story--and kinda funny in a way.....a hunter was out of course hunting with his hunting dog and had shot a pheasant and went to get it.The dog had come back to him where he had layed down his rifle.As the man started to climb over the fence(to retrieve it)the dog stepped on the rifle and shot the man......the man was shot in the ankle and is in the hospital doing fine.But can you believe it?A dog shot the human.....

Someone needs to give that dog a bow and arrow! Our dogs are so sweet and forgiving, he will probably never use. The good thing about the news stories like these-there will probably a great forever home waiting to bring this guy home and really show him love and compassion.

My grandmother found a cat in her woods that had a bb pellet between its eyes. The cat was able to see fine but when the pellet was removed, the hair never grew back. So there was a black spot, and my grandmother just called her "Indian princess," I just like to think it was an accident.

I get so mad when I see someone being mean to a dog/puppy. Some people are just ignorant..... I wonder why they get a dog in the first place?????

Humans can be so cruel. In so many ways. We hold grudges over the stupidest things and yet an animal can forgive something so painful and awful. Sometimes I think the human race needs to be wiped out and begun again. We've lost our perspective, our compassion and so much else. When I start to think that though, I remember all the good, like how the folks on this very list came together for a complete stranger who lost her home. Maybe only half the population needs to be wiped out and begun again....

Whoever said animals are the lower species needs to take another look.
