The Homeless Man and the Dog
I am always moved when I see the special bond between a homeless person and his or her dog.
How they share what little they have with their pets. And how their dogs are oblivious to their miserable surroundings, and are just glad to be with the ones who love them.
Because I share a special bond with the homeless. Their condition makes me sad, and ashamed. And the cruel way they are often treated makes me wild with anger.
And of course, as you know, I love dogs eh?
So I found this story both sad and beautiful..
I'm glad that poor man was treated kindly before he died.
Because that's the way all human beings, whether they have a home or not, should be treated all the time.
And I'm happy his last wish came true. Because homeless people have dreams too.
As for the dog, I wonder as she sleeps in her fancy new home, whether she dreams of waking up in that car next to her friend.
Knowing dogs as I do.
I'm sure she does...
