You know how I love good dog humor, being such a fan of the canine species and all. I came across a website that insists dogs deserve a better life than to be chained and penned up.
The site distributes a series of posters that criticize the practice of chaining up your dog(s). Some of the slogans are:
"If you think I want to live life like this...think again...I deserve better than life on a chain or in a pen."
"Your grandfather did it, your father did it...isn't it time for you to BREAK THE CHAIN? I deserve better than life on a chain or in a pen."
I do think choosing to keep a dog as a pet makes little sense if you have to keep it chained up for most of it's existence, but that's not what caught my eye on this site. The above poster depicting Jesus petting a chained dog with other pathetic victims looking on is what did it for me. It poses the question:
"Would Jesus Chain His Dogs ?"
Hmmmm.... I wonder.
