Lately Aunty Tooki has been feeling as hot and exhausted as this poor chap. I decided to give myself a break and go find a cool place to chill out.
Off to the mountains I went. Thick clouds and rain and mist. What more could I ask for! Lovely!
Henri Matisse said, "There are always flowers for those who want to see them." How very true.
Aunty Tooki says....there are always dogs for those who want to see them. I saw lots of homeless dogs up there. This one was waiting for customers to throw her some food. Look at those scars.
This one slept in the middle of the road. He didn't care if a car ran over him.
This one slept under a car. Look at that horrible wound/growth. Isn't it pathetic? No one bothered with them and Aunty Tooki felt so, so sorry.
This one tore at my heart. It was running all over on three legs trying to look for food in the garbage bins. There was none. Aunty Tooki bought him a packet of rice with chicken and gravy. I am so sorry I couldn't do more. That was probably the only decent meal he had ever had in a long, long time.
Once upon a time, I was a cute little puppy too. I fed on my mother's milk and I grew fat while she grew thin. Then she left me to fend for myself. Where to find food? From the garbage. Toxic food that humans threw at me made my body rot. I was too hungry to resist.
They live near humans but not many will give them food, even leftover food. Some are killed in a cruel manner. Hey, dog killers! Do you know it's like killing an innocent toddler? That's the IQ of a dog, a toddler's IQ.
It could have been me.
