TOPIC:  Rescue…

I think most dawgs at shelters get worried about their situation, and some even harbor deep-seated anger issues.  I tell them they need to be patient waiting for the right human to come along and rescue them from their temporary hoosegow.  I also tell them they shouldn't necessarily choose the first one who comes along.  One needs to consider the human's disposition, religion, political party, and especially if they're vegan or vegetarian.  I don't think most dawgs would like to be placed in a live-in situation with some angry, atheist, tofu-loving, socialist-democrat.  Keeping chewy bacon in your diet is more important than that!
