nowwown Posted August 20, 2007 Report Share Posted August 20, 2007 We were vacationing in Cancun and took a side trip to Chichen Itza (Mayan sacred grounds/pyramids). We took a local highway back to the hotel and went through many small villages. It's sad enough to see little children hawking fruit and vegetables at the roadside. It was even sadder to see all the pregnant, or just pregnant, lethargic, skinny mongrels that laid in the street, the sidewalks, wherever. The people can't afford to feed themselves, let alone these dogs. So most looked half-starved, and just hanging around while the people near them just totally ignore them. What an awful life for these poor dogs. It made me grateful for all I have and for being able to give my family and dog a safe, secure, heated/cooled home, with ample food and water, plus all the activities and fun stuff we can do. We saw hundreds of these dogs in these villages. They're ignored and just treated like the landscape. How awful. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
