Many times, myself and others have wondered how someone could give up a dog for rehome or worse abandon him in the wild or at a shelter. I know I could never do that. I would feed them before I ate. They would be happy to live in a cardboard box if they were with me.

When I was 19 to young 20's, I had a beautiful Samoyed named Chrystal. There were many times I was broke. I remember one Thanksgiving when I was alone in Daytona Beach, Florida. I lived in an $8.00 a night motel, no job (yet), and an old Ford Pinto on it's last leg. I was able to buy a Turkey Frozen Dinner that I shared with Chrystal. It was so sad and lonely, but we had each other. Never once did I think to leave her or abandon her.

Life did get better after that, I found a waitress job, Chrystal stayed in the tiny motel room while I worked. We spent days off on the beach, together, and I learned how to support us.

Dogs are so loving and non-judgemental and they just want to be with us.

Every dog deserves a loving home and people who love him.

Lynn, you are right. Dogs are the most forgiving creatures. Lola has been with us for 12 years now and thru some rough times and was always absolutely happy as long as she was with us both. I don't understand people giving their animals up either!
