I had an unexpected reaction to someones comments on Facebook this week and I don’t know why it got too me so much. Breaking it down, my state has this incredible public Facebook page (well two at least) where people from all over the state can make public posts about if they have pets go missing. There’s one page that’s for any pet and another specific for dogs, cats, etc.
Now I am sure if you are a pet owner, you know around New Years it can be dangerous for pets when it comes to fireworks. They can scare them and make them so scare they will just go for it and run. These two pages are just FULL of missing pets around this time every year, some end up being happy stories, some not so much.
There was one story I was reading and my heart broke. Now I must say apart from the owners saying that the dogs had dug under the fence, there was no other mention about things like, if the owners were even home, if the dog had ever suffered from fear of fireworks before. The only two things for certain was that the dog dug under the fence, and the fireworks would have gone off illegally. There was this one poster though that made a comment about how selfish the owners were for leaving the dog outside.
And it made me SO mad! I couldn’t help myself, I tore into this person, as well with others.
What is it with me and animals? I cannot help myself. I also could not believe this person couldn’t see how inappropriate their comments were. They were just so unnecessary.
I think that I found my weakness!
