Did you know that one in every 4 dogs are neglected and abused by their owners after the month of October because of the owners own inability to deal with time change and shorter days? The dogs are left to sleep, eat, and sleep some more without the hint of a walk or playtime at the tennis courts or dog parks. And did you know that dogs are 87% more likely to become depressed and withdrawn if their owners become obsessed with TV series such as: Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, and Mike and Molly? Oh! And... Did you know that 72 3/5% of all owners of dogs get head injuries from aggressive dogs lunging for their toys after owners have kept said toys in seclusion...(after assuming dog wants to chew squeaker out of squeaky fox but in reality all dog wants to do is get a rush from the squeak-y tail...)
Just some info I needed to get off my chest. Though Max and Maggie were wishy-washy about their answers for this survey, Mutley's confidence brought home every truth that I've known for years. And now... What to do. A protest maybe? I've a lot of time to think about it. Gracie.
