A large percentage of Fly Fisherman out there owns a 4 legged fishing partner and the thought of something happening to them makes anyone of us a little disturbed. What most people out there don't realize or pretend not to focus on is the sector of society where there is an ongoing battle against not only abuse, but also abandonement with Fidos. This is not a rant in anyway but merely a subtle reminder of what exist out there and a little awareness.
There are thousands of Pet's out there that enjoy a good life but there is also a few that aren't so lucky. One Organization that has done an amazing job for the support of of the less fortunate is the Best Friends Organization.

Here is a new Pet in the FFA family named Boca, she was rescued from a local dog park that was abandoned and now is living large with weekend trips to the Mtns chasing trout.
This thread is not geared towards the idiot Michael Vick at all, this is geared towards Pet's of today and the care needed to protect them against ongoing issues. I promise to start talking fishing again and this was my token Pet Thread for awhile.
I thought this might bring some insight as to Pets of today and issues to look at. Glad you enjoyed it.
It took me a long time before I was willing to own a pet living in a city but eventually I gave in so my son could have a dog like I did as a kid.
The only thing is that Shadow became my dog as he obviously wasn't ready to take care of a pet that wasn't a gold fish. :)
We had Shadow for 7 years and she helped me through 4 years of heart problems but she died from a stroke. Broke my heart.
I can't stand seeing any one abuse their pets in any way.
My son grew up and finally decided to get a dog of his own and he went to the SPCA where he found the dog he wanted. A big black pitbull who had been abused and came with a bit of a bum front right paw.
It took my wife and I quite a while to come to the point where we didn't fear being eaten in our sleep. But she turned out to be the most loveable dog.
I am very proud of my son, Steve, for getting is dog from the SPCA without any prompting from us.
Thanks for sharing your story. Yes Pet's play a very vital role is most people's lives, whether as a child's companion or like most of us as we get older, another family member.
Sorry to hear about what happened to Shadow, that's never an easy thing to go through. Your son Steve sounds like he's matured quite a bit and it's great to hear about others adopting Pet's from local shelters and animal rescue groups. Pit's have always been given a bad rap, but as you all found out they can be as loving as the next dog. Thanks again for sharing again!
