My heart goes out to the poor child and his family and I along with many others I’m sure, would like to see some measures put in place to control strays.

A Dog’s LifeThis is my country, a beautiful place, a haven of life and love…unless you are a dog… My name is Brown… and this is my storyabout people and life This is my friend, the only one I had left. He, like me, survived… We were once friends of four, now we are only two This is the food that people left for us, in front of our home That did this to my friend… We were once strays, those that nobody wanted, those that people neglected, those that people hated But we came here and someone gave us a roof to live under, food to eat, a place to feel safe We are dogs… we do not know school, we do not know money, we do not know religion We only know to live… to protect our friends, to guard our master’s home We know not evil, we know not good We too are God’s creatures Why do you hate us? We only want to be loved Why do you throw stones at us? Why do you hate? We are dogs… we only do our jobs, to protect the ones who take care of us We bark at people to warn our masters of possible dangers, and warn thieves to go away, but you don’t understand, and you don’t care… This is my story… for today I am no longer alive, because you have MURDERED me, like you did my friends… Goodbye…
