When was the last time you took a break from a busy, hectic work day and stopped to take a stroll around a park with a furry companion? I bet it's been a while. Working in an office all day can take a serious toll on both our mental and physical

Thanks for sharing Cher. See? There are people that think what ever to help dogs, somebody else..........I received right not the following terrible news:

'Despite the protests, in Yulin, China, Saturday, June 21 back to the festival of dog meat, in which thousands of four-legged friends are killed mercilessly every year and hung from hooks on the street before being brought to the table. The inhabitants of the city of Yulin hosting the macabre event began last weekend to eat dog meat and lychees (tropical plant also known as cherry China) to celebrate - there's a worse way? - The summer solstice on Saturday. According to local media, residents groped wanted to avoid the controversy and protests by activists for animals every year are hurled against them. In recent years, the festival has been the subject of campaigns by animal rights activists, willing to fight it more and more on the media and on the internet with online petitions, but also showing off the slaughterhouses and markets where dogs are sold.
There is a precedent: the pressure of public opinion has managed to stop another dog meat festival in Zhejiang Province, canceled in 2011, although andesse on for hundreds of years.
The fact remains that the accession to the protests in China reflects the change in the point of view of the people, who always have more pets and are changing their traditions. Although, unfortunately, still not all. The state media broadcast pictures of the people around tables laden with dishes of meat and lychees. But the microblogging sites showed the other side of the festival: the dogs crammed into cages in the markets, skinned and piled up to be cooked, cooked and hung on a hook in the streets.'

what a great idea - !!!! I am sure city parks would not mind the occasional adoption drive - and it should be paired with workers who give dog care info -
ie
do NOT get a dog if you are stuck at the office all day and he has to be at home alone 12 hrs per day

I am sure it has great adoption success
