This is sort of out of the blue , but I felt the desire to rant about something that happened a couple months ago.
My boyfriend plays in a co-ed outdoor soccer league and I went to watch one of his games one night in December. No one else watches their games, so when I go it's pretty special for him. It was absolutely frigid outside, I was wearing two pairs of pants and at least 3 or 4 layers on top.
I got to the game a little late, and they had already started playing. When I got closer to the benches where all of their bags were piled up, I noticed a little pug tied up to the bench. As I got closer, he got all excited that a new friend was approaching and I squatted down to say hello.
As I petted him, I realized that he was shivering like crazy and it made me cry a little inside. This poor helpless creature was tied up to a pole with no blankets and no way of escaping to find someplace warm while his mom was out running around and not paying any mind to the little guy. He was really fortunate to have me that night because I sat on the bench and he just hopped right into my lap. He had a warm lap to sit on and I tried to keep my arms wrapped around him the whole time to warm him up. I'm fearful that there were or will be other games that I don't go to where the poor dog will have to freeze all night.
I'm frustrated with the owner... she could at least have the decency to give the dog a blanket. :(
