know your limit, stay within it.
i am not necessarily talking about just numbers, i am also talking about knowledge, committment and responsibility.
limits protect you. limits protect the animals. limits prevent broken promises that just cause more pain.
animals require the same dedication and concern as human children...so whatever you are about to do or not do..better stand up to the same measure.
it is not ok to chain a child or make them live alone in the yard, garage, basement, a pen or a crate 24/7 or even gasp..10/7.
it is not ok to not provide a child with proper medical care or to play witch doctor with them yourself.
it is not ok to give a child away or leave him/or her tied to a fence of a child shelter somewhere.
it is not ok to not seek professional counselling if your child is having emotional problems.
it is not ok to euth. your child because he/she has become expensive, a pain the ass or you just do not have enough time.
it is not ok to allow your child to grow up without a decent education and some basic social skills.
it is not ok to remove body parts from a child so they look like the breed standard for children or so they don't damage your furniture.
it is not ok to defend your neglect or abuse or stupid decisions with the words...."it's only a kid."
and it is not ok to have a cute little baby and then give it away when it is a bothersome teenager.
it is not ok to re-home your child because the condo you want to buy does not allow kids over 15 pounds.
AND it is not ok to witness the miracle of birth of a child or to create the "perfect" line bred child specimen and then sell the excess babies to strangers for money to help cover the costs.
how hard is it to understand the word "responsibility?"....how hard is it to figure out the difference between the words "right and wrong?"
