    Im sorry, but I just cant stand reading about the pets and dogs left behind. It just kills me to see that. And the rescuers arent letting people take their pets. I dont know why. Some guy shut his dog in a room with a months worth of food because he didnt leave when he had the chance. Left their to die. It sucks so bad. I know the human suffering is bad. But humans had a choice , the dogs are a victim of the owners choice. Such a shame and very very upsetting.

    Agreed--the magnitude of the sorrow and damage is still not fully comprehended---and all this poison gets pumps to where?? To hurt more living things.

    I too really feel for the animals that had no choice.

    They had an interview with a family that had to leave their dog tied to a tree in order to get on an evacuation shuttle. They weren't allowed to take the animal...

    I think I might have just stayed and walked.

    The reality is there is room for one-----a person or an animal. Choosing to save a human over an animal in not a sin nor does it indicate that someone has no feelings whatsoever for animals. It's another part of the tragedy that no one needs to take the blame for. Shit DOES happen.

    I'm just saying, that I personally, rather than leave my animal to starve, would more likely walk to the destination of the buses. If they are going to the Astrodome, I'm healthy enough and we'll make it.

    Why would they leave the darn thing tied to a freaking Tree ? What are they stupid ? Animals can survive. They will find a place to nest up. But tying it to a tree ? Why dont you freaking shoot it first ? At least free the animal could swim somewhere or find someone to take the dog in. If I had to leave I would have left the front door open and the dog can make the choice. At least that way he has a chance.
