I am writing to The Star instead of C.W. Gusewelle, because I want my writing read and not thrown into the trash “at warp speed” (12/14, Local, “New litter preserves the Rufus pedigree”).
My parents bred, raised, showed and sold Pomeranians. My sister bred, raised, showed and sold pups. But that was long ago. Today we fight and speak for those who cannot fight and speak for themselves — the strays, the neglected and abused, the hungry and the sick ones.
To help control the pet population, all cats and dogs should be spayed or neutered. And then, just maybe then, we can begin to rid the world of animal cruelty and abuse.
Too many cats and dogs are born, and there are not enough good homes to care for them. Millions of cats and dogs are euthanized every year. Visit any city’s animal control shelter or, better yet, volunteer there for a few days. You will see all breeds of purebred animals waiting to be adopted or euthanized. There are even beagles and Brittanys waiting.
And yes, C.W. Gusewelle, I do have better things to do than talk about your dogs. .
