The Obama Dog Controversy
Dear Mr. President Elect
In this day and age of extremely busy professional and non professional families with or without children, you have within your power a chance to enact some meaningful change. By not adopting or buying a dog. You will be taking the lead which hopefully millions of Americans will follow. This in turn will be our first small step as a nation, toward reducing the unwanted homeless pet population.
You and your family simply do not have the available free time that is required to properly raise a dog. I realize that first family pets, always present a good photo-op. But lets face it and correct me if I’m wrong, didn’t you just win the presidency rather easily without owning a pet.
By not buying or adopting a dog you will be making a presidential precedent, and sending a powerful message to all Americans and maybe even the citizens of the world. By simply saying ” our life is a little too busy at present to own an animal”.
I cannot even imagine what can only be a staggering amount of emails, your staff must be handling in regards to what breed of dog you should consider. I am sure that they are all telling you the virtues of their particular breed, and why you should choose that breed of dog as apposed to all other breeds of dog.
Regardless of what I say here, your still going to get a new puppy for your girls. So my only real advice on the subject of what kind of dog you should get is, a small one.
THE SPIRIT DOG
MORE PUPPY STUFF
If you have children, I would suggest you buy a breed of dog that your kids can easily handle. That means get a small breed of dog only.
Buying puppy’s online. Buying dogs online. If you can’t visit the breeder, don’t buy that puppy.
The notion that with better shelter management. They can somehow stem the tide, of the millions of people abandoning their dogs every year, is absurd.
In the perfect world there wouldn’t be any kill shelters or any animal shelters for that matter, because nobody would give up their pets.
Unfortunately at present we will never accomplish a no kill nation.
