Please read the following before you pick up or buy that cute little puppy.  If you are unable to make a commitment for the lifetime of the dog, please do not purchase him.  Leave him for someone who can.  Please take in to account all of the changes your life may go through in the 10-15 years (if not more) that he will be with you and make provisions today for what may come tomorrow.
I Died Today
I died today.  You got tired of me and took me to the shelter.  They were overcrowded and I drew an unlucky number.  I am in a black plastic bag in the landfill now.  Some other puppy will get that barely used leash you left.  My collar was dirty and too small, but the lady took it off before she sent me to the Rainbow Bridge.  Would I still be at home if I hadn’t chewed your shoe?  But I didn’t know what it was, but it was leather and it was on the floor.  I was just playing.  You forgot to get puppy toys.  Would I still be at home if I had been housebroken?  Rubbing my nose in it only made me ashamed that I had to go at all.  There are books and obedience teachers that would have taught you to teach me to go to the door.  Would I still be at home if I hadn’t brought fleas into the house?  Without anti-flea medicine, I couldn’t get them off of me after you left me in the yard for days.  Would I still be at home if I hadn’t barked?  I was only saying “I’m scared, I’m lonely, I’m here, I’m here!  I want to be your best friend!”  Would I still be at home if I made you happy?  Hitting me didn’t make me learn how.  Would I still be at home if you had taken the time to care for me or to teach manners to me?  You didn’t pay any attention to me after the first week or so, but I spent all my time waiting for you to love me.  I died today.
Love, Your Puppy
It is time to stop animal abuse.
