John Visconti I think this must be a typo.
Should read, Please share if you "DISAGREE." It should also say "If you want your kid to be seriously injured, please share."
Let's see. We have a dog wearing a shock collar. We have a kid kissing the dog in the face (75% of the bites inflicted on children are to the face for this very reason) Based on observable body language of the dog, at best we have a dog who is tolerating the kiss in this picture. We have a child holding the leash of a dog that is clearly way too big for her to keep under control. And hey, for bonus points, let's do it in the middle of a road.
*bangs head repeatedly on desk* What on earth are people thinking? Are we SO in need of believing that every dog is Lassie that adults are willing to post pictures like these on FB, with hundreds of shares?
Here's how it works. The two innocent parties, the child and the dog end up paying for the irresponsible and yep, ignorant behavior of the adults.
The jackets are made of Polar fleece which is easy to wash and very warm. They come in a variety of colors and sizes ranging from xs/s/m/l/xl. Orders can be placed on the Facebook page or via e-mail: email@example.com (Please state Boston Terrier Rescue when placing your order)
What a wonderful initiative this is! How it all came about:
"The Chelsea-Bean Winter Project came into being when my beautiful furr baby Chelsea-Bean became ill with cancer.
I felt the need to perpetuate her legacy and what she has meant to me and in so doing also offer a meaningful contribution towards animal welfare in South-Africa.
We noticed the lack of warm winter jerseys for rescued animals in Gauteng.The Chelsea-Bean Winter Project will strive to provide as many home-made winter jackets to all rescues in need of them free of charge"
Sweet Pumpkin is a Boston Terrier cross and is looking for a home. She is a friendly, good natured dog who loves children, dogs and cats. She is healthy and sterilised. If you can offer Pumpkin a loving home please contact Candice. Pumpkin is in JHB but Boston Terrier rescue will assist with flights to other cities. Please share
