They didn’t just stop at dogs.

Well, the Earth is definitely a place filled with all sorts of people. It’s saddening to see how people treat the animals we love this way. I’m pretty grossed out by now. But we may be booing at what we deem as unethical behaviour, but who knows? Someone else may be booing at us for eating chicken and carrots. This does not mean I would eat those animals mentioned above. Can’t, I just can’t.
