this really breaks my heart... I couldn't just take the picture and leave the poor soul like that. conversely, i can't bear to spend much time in places that treat animals this way (and that goes for my hometown too, i never go there anymore, it's just too sad and people annoy me because they see nothing wrong with this and miriyad of other social problems) excellent picture, really made me think (and cry)
A sense of abandon, lonliness, an owner who rarely fed him, a walk to the park or pat on the head would be a dream trapped in the his mind. A welcomed home is the cold tile, of a granite stair way. Mothers pull their son away from petting his cold head, an business man in a rush steps on his tail and keeps walking like it was a dead leaf on a cold autumn morning. He laid until the day of warmness would enter his heart. (sorry this just came to me when i saw this great picture, didnt mean to brake the copyright rules...if i did. You can't just delete this if you don't like it.)
Buhuu, the dog looks so unhappy! It makes me want to cry. Very beautiful shot thought, showing the sad truth for so many dogs, and other animals, and humans too for that matter.. the picture looks perfekt with that indistinct background and the clarity of the dog.
