The dog on the right is the mom of our dogs. She was pregnant when this picture was taken. I don’t like images like this and told myself I’d never share them on this blog, but I think this is a powerful image, especially when compared to the hundred that I have of our happy littermate puppies.
I can’t stand the sound of Sarah MacLachlan’s voice. I the song “You Are Always on My Mind” makes me cringe.
I know that the ASPCA does a lot of great work, but those commercials just KILL me and don’t encourage me to donate to them at all – WHY? – because my donation doesn’t guarantee that I won’t see that sad commercial in the next 60 minutes. Obviously these commercials send droves of people to their phone, credit card in hand, ready to rescue animals. They just make me change the channel.
The ASPCA knows what their doing, because those commercials work!
It cracks me up and I imagine that the ASPCA is run by some brilliant people. WHY? Because I donate money to a local rescue group, Furkidz911 Connection (they rescued the mom of our littermate puppies) every year. I won’t donate to the ASPCA, because those commercials are awful, but I still support rescue work and isn’t that the point?
Everyone time I see one of those commercials, I think of the image you see above and the image you see below. Two generations of Australian Cattle Dog mix canines. I’m so thankful for what we’ve been able to do to give our dogs such a great life.
I wish the ASPCA commercials looked like this image below…
It would be so nice to see some more happy endings.
This is Sydney and Rodrigo playing in our yard. I love watching them play from a distance, because they truly love each other and play together today just like they did that first week we brought them to our home.
The ASPCA is a little bit brilliant!
