Compassion for people
It’s important, I think, to keep pets in perspective. I hope I never risk my life to save my dog or my cat. I hope I never put my dog’s life before a human’s life, even a stranger. I hope I never keep an aggressive dog that is a danger to others. I hope I never put my family deep into debt to save a dog or a cat.
I’m not saying these decisions would be easy or that I will always pick the right answers. I’m not saying my choices should be yours.
My love for animals is very powerful, but my love for people should be even stronger. Of course, animals, in many ways, allow me to find that compassion.
