Sometimes I have a hard time believing I live in a place where people love their dogs more than other people's children.
Where schools close on days too cold because there are children who can't afford warm coats, while I see countless dogs don down jackets (with fur-lined trim).
Where abortion is considered a contraception, but undying efforts are being made to make humane societies "no-kill".
Where animal-testing is a sin to be abhorred, but we gladly buy products that are made using slave-labor.
Not that I don't believe in taking care of animals (I really like animals and I would love for humane societies to be no-kill)... but perhaps we have our priorities a little mixed up?
