t-frahms: Dear friends,
My brother’s beautiful husky died last Monday, September 1st, and not all of you may know the story of Kholton’s death. I share it now only as context for why I am asking for your help.
On Sunday, August 31st, my family was out in their backyard doing yard work with their dogs playing outside in the yard. After a while, Kholton came back from a run down by the river with a gunshot wound in his side. Since they were using chainsaws to trim trees, they never heard a sound. They spent the next 24 hours in the animal emergency room fighting for the dogs life. Sadly, the trauma ended up being too much for him and his heart gave out…leaving my brother, Dominic, with an unbearable loss and a $3,000 vet bill.
Kholton was a kind dog and loyal friend to everyone that was fortunate enough to meet him. He was a blessing to our family for four amazing years that we will never forget, and taught us so much about life and love.
In order to help him work on recovering from this tragedy emotionally, I and my family want to make sure he does not have to worry about the crippling financial burden it has also put him in.
If you could find it in your hearts to pitch in what you can to help alleviate the strain this has brought upon our family and to help a grieving pet-owner in need, my family would be forever grateful.
Thank you so much for your help and we love you all.
Ugh, so sad.

Jeez, I hate to see things like this happening in Milwaukee.

Spitz Dog by Thomas Gainsborough, c. 1765
People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
This shit pisses me off
How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
Not rs but this one of those things that’s just important enough. Animals depend on you, they love you, their entire world revolves around you
It’s a commitment. Once you make it, see it through
