Wildman A dog is the only thing on earth that will love you more than you love yourself.
A quote from Abe Lincoln ,"I care not for a man's religion who's dog and cat are not the better for it."
That is exactly why Tennessee is one of the worst states for animal cruelty. The dogs cannot speak for their selves and the mindset of the people here are that the dogs are just a piece of property, to do what ever they want with instead of creatures of God and to be treated as such. After all is this not called the so called "Bible Belt"?
