    Why?

    Why people hurt animals is such a mystery to me, I just don't understand.  They are so helpless.  Animals are such beautiful creatures and deserve to be treated that way.

    Be kind not cruel.

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. Be kind, not cruel. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
