Re: “At last, an explanation of How Dogs Love Us

Unfortunately it is not illegal in my State to chain a dog.
I am trying to create awareness, and tug on heart strings to change the laws. I hope to someday see it be illegal to chain a dog. It is so cruel! With colder than normal temperatures this year, there is a lot of suffering going on because of this!
Please share! Thank you!
"Dog On a 10 Foot Chain" on You Tube

Nothing to look forward to
Watching cars go by all day
Nothing to play with, nothing to do
Shivering in the cold hard rain

They forget to bring me water
They forget that I am here
They don’t know how smart I am
They don’t even see my tears

What did I do wrong, what did I do?
I just want someone to love me, because I love you
Whatever it is I did wrong, maybe I can change
No one knows how hard it is, how hard it is to be………. a dog on a 10 foot chain

Sometimes it’s hard to stay cool
On a blazing hot summer day
I dream of crossing the stream
And catching a fish as the sunlight fades

It’s hard to stay warm in the winter
Some nights it’s hard to be strong
I dream of chasing butterflies
And rabbits all day long

The world is big and beautiful
But I’ll never see it all
Maybe when I go to Heaven
Someone will throw me a red ball
