to those of you have gotten your companions from shelters, huge amount of respect for saving an animal when they would have been put down because they weren't adopted. giving them another chance at life is really heartwarming.

I got my lab off the street. Wh found her and her sister when they were about 3 months old. They were all skin and bones. We took them both in. Lilly and Daisy. Sadly Daisy was in to bad a shape and died a few days after. Lilly is the best dog I have ever had. I thank I could tech her to pee in the toilet if I wonted and flush. We even bought her a BOB. We bought Tyson. I have wonted a purple ribbon pit for years. And your just not going to find one of those in a shelter. But me and the wife agreed that every other dog we git will come from a shelter.

In some cases it might be bc you just flushed and its fresh water. Lol our cat drinks from the toilet.

Sad story. I just got home from work. (I work off shore so no guns) went to my moms before going home. There was a cat under her car. Looked like it was there for days. I thought it was dead. I walked up and nudged it with my boot. It did not move. I pulled it out and it tried to walk but fell over. It was in unrecoverable state. I thought the right thing to do was to take it out of its misery in a fast painless way. I dug a hole in my moms backyard and told my brother to git a gun because I did not have any with me. He brought me a 12ga with some number 8 I thank it was. I said no I need something bigger. I did not wont to take a chance on the first shot not taking it out. So he brought me a 3 1/2 OO buck. I said a little to big. He told me that's all he had other than hunting rifles. Of corse I wonted it to be as clean as possible. So I put a towel in the hole and laid him in it. I aimed just to the side of his head so that all the shot did not hit him. 2 pellets hit the right spot. No pain and no more suffering.
I draped the other 1/2 of the towel over him. My brother barred him. Even made a head stone.

I hunt a lot. And my brother dose to. But neither one of us wonted to take that shot. He did not even watch just turned his head and walked away. And I'm not a big fan of cats. But I still hate to see animals suffer.

You did the right thing. I hate animal cruelty and suffering. I can't watch those commercials with all the shelter pets. I will never understand how someone can abuse an animal. On a lighter note here is my Boston Terrier/Pug. Her name is Laila and she is the sweetest dog I have ever had the privilege of being around.

Great fun to be around. They love to play in the Wilderness.

2nd photo is near Flat Tops Wilderness, where I went hunting this last Fall.
Taz looks EXACTLY like my female Kaya that adopted me and my wife in Utah. She is an amazing dog and I have never seen another that so closely resembles her. My male is a Red Heeler / Cattledog mix named Fred. He is an awesome dog too but I am biased...of course. I have attached a picture of them both. Kaya on the left and Fred on the right. Ignore the guy in the middle.
