My mommy was just looking at a website of a shelter in Illinois, and she got sad.
She looked at some of the doggies who were visiting the shelterhotel and she saw their eyes peering through the steel bars, looking into a camera lense for hope. They look into the camera lense and maybe see their families, maybe they hear hope in the voices of the photographers, who use praise and cooing to focus their subjects. They peer into the glass eye with false hope - it is misleading. Pictures can't do them justice.
It is like looking through a dating service and hoping someone catches your eye.
It makes my mommy so, so very sad. It kills a part of her each time she looks, because she wants to bring every one of them home with her (well, mostly the retrievers) and let them live with no bars, no jail.
She hates cages!
