I am a fan of dogs. I do not know why. But I love dogs. They have an innocent nature that I cannot resist. So when I see a dog badly treated and neglected I get so upset. Dogs have such trusting souls that it is unbelievable to me that anyone would hurt them. While growing up and going through graduate school my my mom and dad had two dogs. The first was Elgie (1975-1987) and the second Alfie (1987-2006). Both were wonderful dogs with very distinct personalities. I miss them both.
Over the weekend the Humane Society held their annual Mutt Walk. I participate every year. I go. I walk and socialize with my canine friends. It is wonderful to see.
