Today the Toronto Star reported that a Toronto woman has spent thousands of dollars bringing seven puppies from China to Canada. Our country (continent actually) has enough rescue organizations which could have used that money to save a few cats and dogs. Perhaps a few fractures could have been repaired on a few Canadian rescue dogs (who will now have to be euthanized)? I am certain that this woman could have expended the same energy to find them a home in China.
Of course, most of us are gaga over the (never-ending) sensationalist Star coverage: adorable, happy little puppies in their recent Canadian photo-op. This story and photo likely turned thousands into doting, sniveling mashed potatoes.
This woman thought with her heart, not her head.
Dogs that could use a few bucks.
