If you choose to watch the video below, I want to warn you that it’s sad. Really sad. You’ll cry. I did too. But it’s kind of a good cry.

This is a beautiful piece that a friend shared today about love for a dog. I don’t care if the non dog lovers out there think I’m nuts. Frankly, I think they’re nuts too.

This video allows me to segue into an issue I’m extremely passionate about – pet adoption over pet purchasing. If it makes you sad to watch this loss of life, pause to think of the 4 million pets that are euthazined every year. Oden lived a long and wonderful life, but many pets don’t get the same chance.

4 million. One every eight seconds.

That is insane.

These pets don’t ask to be born, yet often die at the expense of human selfishness or irresponsibility.

Pass the tissues.
