There are a number of things that pull at my heartstrings – an old couple still in love, a dad with his kid bouncing on his shoulders, and anything that has to do with an adorable puppy. When dogs are sad though, that’s just the tip of the ice berg. When I came across these pictures of dogs and their owners who have no place to live, they really upset me, as I’m sure they have before and will still upset other people. It’s bad enough that homelessness is such a large issue in so many countries in terms of humans, but when dogs and other pets are involved it makes the whole situation even more devastating.
Part of this situation is almost beautiful – that man’s best friend is always man’s best friend, no matter what the situation – but it’s also just so tragic. It really makes you think about what you have and how lucky you are to be where you are. With the pure innocence that only children and dogs possess, I hope that less and less of these types of pictures will be taken in the future, until finally they will be impossible to take.
