I don’t mean to be offensive but I am just so fed up of people referring to me as ‘Just a street dog’.
Doesn’t vilification amount to misbehaviour, racism and abuse?
I think it does.

I think you're beautiful, Shadow. Don't pay any attention to what folks say. After all (shhh..don't tell your siblings), very often mixed breeds are smarter and healthier!

Even though my favorite breed is Rottweiler (we've had three), we currently have six dogs, all mixed breed "strays" that found us. Their stories are all on my blog. In some ways, it makes them all the more special.... just as I know you are!

Shadow, you have to be the BIGGER dog in this situation.

The ones that call you names must not have been rescued, are not in a loving home, don't have loving siblings, or have a special snuggle bed! They also son't have furiends ALL over the world like YOU!!!

So I agree with you, poo poo poo on them!

Have a Grrrrreat weekend!

woo woos, Tessa

Shadow, to me, you are also so much more!! When I first read your story I was so taken by you, and hoped and prayed you'd find your way to a family that would love and care for you...And that prayer was answered by the very family that looked into your eyes and heart seeing something that others unfortunately do not and perhaps still don't...You are indeed a special boy who has a world wide fan club that also includes the rest of your family, who I admire and think are pretty terrific too!! :-)))

Bocci said...

We agree, Shadow. We can tell that you're very special:-)

Minna Krebs said...

Shadow, you may have come from da streets.....butt you are all around wonderful! And we imagine there are lots and lots and lots of poor street dogs that are wonderful too, they just are not fortunate to find a loving home, like you did!

You are an inspiration for Street Dogs Everywhere!!!

Love that sign!

Hi pal. Can't blame you one bit. I'm a moggie and sometimes I get called a "barn kitty." I don't even know what a barn is!! Guess you showed them.

Who on earth would be so rude as to call you "just" a street dog! We love your response, which is just the way to treat rude bullies.

Loved the Asterix comic in the prior post! Mama hasn't seen any Asterix comics in decades and it was nice to see it again.
