    things people throw away

    As most here know i live in the woods in the middle of no where.(that's a good thing) Well folks have a tendency to drop off unwanted animals out here. This is what happened to show up at our house the other day.Click image for larger version.

ID:	72406Not sure why anyone would drop off two boy pups, nor sure what they are. There well behaved and seem to have been inside a lot, as there well behaved, and are in good shape. I guess the wife has become attached to the little white one, and as our big dog passed awhile back she is gonna keep him. Our son is gonna keep the other. Why would folks do this to a couple really cute pups, i'll never know.

    That really is sad, but I'm happy the pups found their way to your home.

    I think some people are just stupid, in fact I know that some are but that seems more like a cruel thing to do than a stupid thing. I wonder if someone had the pups and they just got away, maybe they got scared and ran off? Maybe someone could not afford to keep the pups, things are rather tight for too many out there these days, in the end, the pups are very lucky they found you and your family.

    All they had to do was drop them off at any humane society or fire station. Some people are just heartless. Makes me sick.

    They sure are cute. Glad they will have a nice home

    Yea a cash cow would be great right about now. A couple years ago some one droped off a pure bread pug, on christmas day. The only thing wrong with it was it had 6 toes on one foot.

    I have no idea why people do that. I'm sure it's just easier for them to do that than have to answer any questions at one of the humane societies.

    One of our little furballs was a drop off on Christmas eve.

    It's very risky for the animals. Just glad they found a good home! Congrats!

    He has taken right up with us,and even likes the cats. Now the cats ain't real sure why we'd bring in a pup. O well the cats live out side and the dogs live inside, so they'll get over it.
