There are times when I'm ashamed and embarrassed to call myself a "human"... because what was done to you up until today was definitely not humane. Your people let you down, and I know you suffered for quite some time before someone finally released you from your misery.
I bet you never held your crappy treatment against anyone.
I bet you kept wagging your tail whenever anyone showed you the smallest kindness, or paid any attention to you.
I bet you forgave all... dogs always do.
I hope someone loved you, at least for a little while... and I hope that you knew in your heart that you weren't the one who failed them - they failed you.
I am so sorry that people continue to do what they do.
Animals are most definitely the better "human(e) beings" in this world.
