I LIVE the DREAM
Today is Martin Luther King Jr day and it is a day to reflect on who we are as a nation, as a people, as a PUG.
So I did some reflecting and came to the conclusion that I AM living the DREAM of many many pugs and PETS out there. I am talking about those in Shelter/Puppy Farms/Abused situations. . . and really, what makes me so special? Yes. . . I AM a princess pug and all that. But I could have just as easily ended up at the Humane Society looking for my FURever home. Instead, I was born into a privileged situation - a show family of champion PUGS - with a future as bright as the sun. I was BORN gorgeous. If it weren't for a LITTLE personality quirk (I kinda like to do things MY way) I was destined for the show ring. Instead, I became the ruling PRINCESS of a wonderful family of a Mother and Daughter who happen to also live with a couple of Aunties, Cousins, cat, birds and now - another dog. BUT I AM THE RULER, make no mistake.
Oh DOG!! I totally digressed from my appointed topic of FREEDOM and EQUALITY. Well, as Dr King said. . . .
"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."
We, as a nation, can no longer ignore the situation of mistreatment of pets UNDER the guise of ignorance. Pick today to join one of the many groups trying to make a difference in a pet's life. The rewards will be legion.
