There was in England, a fire in a dogs' home, most of the mutes
were rescued, but money was needed for a new kennel home.
So far 5 million pounds have been collected. I like animals, had
a dog, she lived till she was fourteen, my best friend and it knew
my moods before I did. Yet I can’t help thinking that there are so
many destitute children in the world, in some places they starve
to death, as we have seen on TV. But it appears we will not think
of them. To be sorry for a homeless puppy is less taxing, easier to
cope with and less demanding. All we have to do is to let a dog
never grow out of puppyhood and needing us forever.
A sweet baby, on the other hand, has the irritating tendency to
grow up and become a sullen adolescent.
