Something from us, some of the world ... (stories, articles, pictures, emotions ...)

First, a little food for thought:

How could you?

When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh. You called me your child and despite a number of shoes and a couple destroyed "murdered" throw pillows, I became your best friend. Whenever I was bad, you'd shake your finger at me and ask, "How could you?" - But then you always forgave me, he invited me on his back and scratched on the belly. My housebreaking took a little longer than expected, because you were terribly busy, but we did it. I remember those nights when I was nuzzling you in bed and listening to your confidences and secret dreams, and I believed that life could not be better. We went for long walks, running around in the park, car rides, to stop for ice cream (just gave me a cone, ice cream because he is not good for dogs) and I have naps in the sun while I was waiting for you to come home at the end the day. Gradually, you began spending more time at work and in your career and more time searching for a human mate. I waited for you patiently, comforted you through heartbreaks and disappointments, never chided you about bad decisions, I always warmly welcomes you to come home and I enjoyed with you when you fell in love. She, now your wife, not a "dog person" - still I welcomed her into our home, tried to show her affection and obeyed her. I was happy because you were happy. Then the babies came and I was excited along with you. I was fascinated by their pinkness, how they smelled, and I wanted to mother them. Only she and you worried that I might hurt them, and I spent most time in a closed room or in a cage. Oh, how I wanted to love them, but I became a "prisoner of love." As a grown up, I became their friend. They clung to my fur and pulled themselves up on wobbly legs, poked fingers in my eyes, investigated my ears and gave me kisses on the nose. I loved everything about them and their touch - because your touch was now so infrequent - and if it were necessary, I would defend their own lives. I would sneak into their beds and listen to their worries and secret dreams, and together we waited for the sound of your car in the driveway. There was a time, when others asked you if you have a dog, you pulled the wallet from my picture and told them stories about me. In recent years, you just answered "yes" and changed the subject. I'm not "your dog" to "just a dog" and you resented every expenditure on my behalf. Now you have a new career opportunity in another city and you and they will be moving into an apartment that does not allow pets. You made the right decision for your family, but there were times when I was your only family. I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the animal shelter. It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear and hopelessness. Filled out the paperwork and said, "I know that you will find a good home." Shrugged their shoulders and give you a painful sight. Understand the realities facing a middle-aged dog, even one with "papers." You had to pry your son's fingers from my collar as he screamed "No, Daddy! Please do not let them take my dog! "And I worried for him, and what lessons you had just taught him about friendship and loyalty, about love and responsibility and respect for all life? You said goodbye to me whack on the head, avoided my eyes, and politely refused to take my collar and leash. Rushed you are, You had a deadline ... and now I have one too. When you left, the two nice ladies said you probably knew about your upcoming move months ago and made no attempt to find my new home. They shook their heads and asked "How could you?" They pay us here at the shelter so much attention, much as their busy schedules allow. They feed us, of course, but my appetite has disappeared days ago. At first I jumped up and hurried to the door whenever anyone passed my pen, hoping it was you - that you changed your mind - it was all a bad dream ... or I hoped it would at least be someone who cared, someone who saves me. When I realized that I can not compete with the frolicking for attention of happy puppies, oblivious to their fate, I retreated to a far corner and waited. I heard her footsteps as she came for me at the end of one day and I walked along the aisle after her to a separate room. A blissfully quiet room. She placed me on the table and rubbed my ears and told me that I was not afraid. My heart pounded in anticipation of things to come, but there was also a sense of relief. Prisoner of love had run out of days. As is my nature, I was more concerned about her. The burden which she bears weighs heavily on her, and I know just how I knew your every mood. Gently I pulled the front leg and a tear runs down her face down. I licked her hand just as I used to comfort you so many years ago. Expertly slid the hypodermic needle into my vein. I felt the sting and the cool liquid coursing through my body, I lay down sleepily, looked into her kind eyes and murmured "How could you?" Perhaps because she understood my dog speech, said: "I'm so sorry . "She hugged me and hurriedly explained it was her job to make sure I go to a better place, where I will not be ignored, abused or neglected, and where I will not have to defend - a place full of love and light so very different from that point on earth. And last the rest of my energy I tried to convince shake my tail that my "How could you?" Was not meant for her. It was for you, my dear sir, I was thinking of. I think of you and wait forever. I wish everyone in your life has such fidelity. The end.
Author's Note: If your article "How could" fetch tears to my eyes as me , when I wrote it because it's made up story of the fate of millions of animals die every year in animal shelters. Welcomed the efforts of all who would like to redistribute article for non-commercial purposes, if attributed with the copyright notice. Let the public know that the decision to add the family pet is an important decision in life, that animals deserve our love and sensible care, that finding a suitable replacement home is your responsibility to that animal protection associations can give you good advice and that each life is valuable. Please add your efforts to stop the killing, and encourage the campaign for sterilization in preventing the proliferation of unwanted animals.
Thank you, Jim Willis

Believe it or not, the montage is not, although at first glance it looks like. It is a fact. This dog really exists. It is a genetically engineered dog race "whippet". Her name is Wendy and lives in America. The genetic mutation caused an enormous increase in muscle mass and size of organs and the skeleton has not changed.
