Hellowie! Licks and Kisses to you.
Just writing to let you know that I am one proud Mutt!
Yes, I'm a mixed breed pup, and I'm so blessed God, that you created me this way... I am unique!
There are still a lot of people who seems to discriminate mutts and native dogs. Here in our country they are called “asong kalye” or “askal” (meaning dog on the street).
I can see and I can feel that they are treated differently compared to our purebred relatives. I feel sad about other native and mixbreed dogs, they greet their owners with wagging tails but often are shooed off. They are given “panis na kanin” (spoiled rice) to eat, eeeewww, don’t this people knew that it could make us sick and it give us worms! They are not groomed or brushed and worst they are not given a bath. They allow them to stray regardless of the weather. They do not have a veterinarian to check their health or for vaccines at least. They are caged or tied most of their lives. They are not even petted, can’t imagine myself like that, that’s terrible. Our local PAWS said that native and mix breed dogs like me are often the most abused and neglected pets. That’s the truth Lord and it makes me sad.
I’m so blessed that my owner loves me, she said that I am just as cute, just as loyal and just as affectionate, and I agree we all are! You create us God, intended to be ruled and nurtured by humans.
I pray Lord, that our society will have a changed perspective on this simple matter, Japan is proud of their Shitzu, China is proud of their Chowchow, France is proud of their poodle… I pray that Filipinos will also be proud of the native breed.
I am a Mutt? So What? Lord, help People to see beauty beyond the breed.
Your wonderfully created dog,
