I am a lover of animals. I have six cats and three dogs, an assortment of fish and birds. Today, I witnessed something horrible.
My 60 lbs dog Chris attacked a stray 5 lbs chiwawa hours ago. This stray had no home and got into our backyard when my dog Chris took him by the neck and shook him like a toy and made him scream. We came running out to try and save him but it was too late.
When she finally dropped him, was breathing hard, not moving, his eyes wide with panic. I sat out there with him for hours, stroking his head until his breathing finally stopped. I wrapped him up in a towel and sat with him until he stopped moving all together.
Animal control arived and took his body away, but I would like to say this:
If you see a dog or animal that is without a collar or without a home on the streets, please, I beg you, alert Animal Control. I have always thought that this was the wrong thing to do, that by doing this, you take away their freedom, but they could get hit by a car or trapped, helpless in some backyard, and attacked by something much bigger than they are. Please, if you can help, do so.
I don’t want to see another dog or animal get tortured like that again, only to die alone and in the cold with some stranger stroking their fur until they stop breathing.
Help them. They have lives just as we do.
