PUPPIES

Lily: A Hero For Mill Dogs

Posted on

I was browsing through youtube for more videos about puppy mills when I stumbled across this video about Lily, a Italian Greyhound who was rescued from the puppy mill.

Just like any other puppy mill dogs, Lily had a tragic story of her own to tell, one so filled with despair that it has left her in shambles. What brought me to tears was what Lily‘s rescuer, Theresa, had to say to Lily‘s breeder.

Read the letter here.

AN ANGEL

Posted on

I wish I had your pair of wings
Had them last night in my dreams
I was chasing butterflies
Till the sunrise broke my eyes

Tonight the sky has glued my eyes
‘Cause what they see is an angel hive
I’ve got to touch that magic sky
And greet the angels in their hive

Chours:
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

All the sweet honey from above
Pour it all over me sweet love
And while you’re flying around my head
Your honey kisses keep me fed

I wish I had a pair of wings
Just like last night in my dreams
I was lost in paradise
I wish I’d never opened my eyes

Chours:
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

But there’s danger in the air
Try so hard to be unfair
Danger’s in the air
Try so hard to give us a scare
But we’re not afraid

Chours:
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
I wish I were you
I wish I were you

My Thoughts on The Puppy Mill Link Exchange Project

Posted on

You know, I have been contemplating about starting this entry because I do not want to push down the Puppy Mill Link Exchange Project post.

I have been going around, begging people to join my project (falling short of going down on my knees) but despite the effort put in, I am afraid to say that results have not been very encouraging. 

Still, I would not say that this project is without it’s merit. At least, bloggers like Mylongkang and ECL have been ‘enlightened’ about the existence of puppy mills through this project.

One issue which disheartened me was the out-of-sight-out-of-mind attitude of certain dog owners. Some cited that the puppy mills are far away from us and there is nothing that we can do but where do you think all the ‘imported’ puppies in our local petshops came from?

Then, there are some who claims to support me which I am very grateful for, but, all they do was to curse how evil puppy mills are. Well, as if cursing would close them puppy mills down for good! They can go on whinning for eternity but the dogs will still be stuck inside the cages if we do not do something concrete to help them.

As Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step”. Take that first step out and we will be one step closer to our aim.

You have seen from the video footage how dogs were cooped up like chickens inside the puppy mill. Do you seriously think dogs in such inhumane conditions could probably give birth to healthy offsprings?

See what I mean?

As mentioned for the umpteenth time, my aim is to reach out to those people who do not know anything about the existence of puppy mills and share with them what goes on behind closed doors. The dogs can’t speak up or fight for their own rights thus, it’s up to us to help them.

Through this link exchange project, I was hoping to achieve the ripple-effect where by words of mouth blog, we could spread the truth ‘far and wide’ however, there is only so much people that I could reach out to. Therefore, I really need all the help I can get to reach out to your circle of friends and the readers of your blog.

I would like to thank skinergy from Hardwareforum for sharing this:

The Animals’ Savior
Copyright Jim Willis 1999

I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter…the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry.
“God,” I said, “this is terrible! Why don’t you do something?”
God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly.
“I have done something,” He replied.
“I created You.”

The PUPPY MILL Link Exchange project

Posted on

The Puppy Mill Link Exchange Project is my personal project to help raise awareness towards the atrocities that happened in puppy mills.

A puppy mill is really a dog factory, where dogs live in horrendous conditions with little care, exercise, or social interaction. There, they live out their lives churning out litters after litters of puppies for the puppy mill operators who sold them for a profit to unwitting consumers including petshops. 

Being confined in a tiny space most of their lives, these dogs became ‘neurotic’ – bouncing off walls or spinning round and round endlessly. The only day that the puppy mill dogs get to leave the tiny crate was when they couldn’t produce any more puppies and had to be taken out to be destroyed because they can no longer make ‘profits’.

To the puppy mill operators, these adult dogs are nothing more than inventories and the puppies, products. Thus, this Puppy Mill Link Exchange Project was initiated to inform and to share with these unwitting consumers about the horrifying truth behind puppy mills.

Heartwarming news from Taiwan ChungHwa Telecom

Posted on Updated on

This is a heartwarming story of how Taiwan‘s ChungHwa Telecom dispatched manpower to rescue four puppies who were trapped under tonnes of cable pipes (and at risks of being crushed to death).

If this were to happen in $illypore, do you think our local telcos would have bothered?
