People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves
you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This. This is honestly so true I cannot even deal with it. My aunt and uncle have two kids, that really wanted a puppy. They didn’t spend much time looking for the perfect one that would fit their family the best. Well a family friend had a bunch of puppies, Goldendoodles. Well, with out knowing how big the dog was going to get or how much work a large dog is they bought her.
Today, she is 2 years and she is the sweetest thing when I go over to visit. But, when I do she is always in a cage. Because the second that she gets out she goes crazy. Only because she is never exercised. I find it so heartbreaking. We are trying to convince them to let us have her and take care of her. But they won’t, which has caused a family fight.

There are many other resources like this online - use them and answer honestly to determine what energy level suits your lifestyle, and what each breed’s temperament and needs are. If you really must get a puppy or want to rescue a particular breed, make sure you know what you’re signing up for. Ask questions of the people at the shelter - they will be able to tell you about the dog’s behavior.
I have a soft spot for Jack Russell Terriers… I visited a particular dog at my local shelter three times in two weeks, each time unable to bring her home because I didn’t have a yard, I didn’t have loads of spare time, and I didn’t have anyone to help me provide her with enough exercise and entertainment. She was adopted by another family and it was a joyful relief - she needed a family with children and a yard, people who could be around the better part of each day. I still wish she was around sometimes - but not at the expense of her happiness.
Consider these things when you head to the shelter as well - dogs get adopted and returned, which is twice as heartbreaking as their first surrender… Make sure you get the right fit, and understand that you may need time and patience with your new family member as they adjust to your home and you learn about each other.
Recognize and honor the commitment that you are making.
(Footnote: If you are too embarrassed to buy condoms, you are not ready to have sex.)
Two: Kissing is not merely foreplay. Spend entire evenings making out on the couch while fully clothed. Believe me, dry-humping rocks.
Three: Sex is not just about friction. It’s about emotion. Stop trying to find her clitoris and find her heart. Because then she’ll help you find her clitoris.
Four: If you really wanna know how to please a woman, ask her how she masturbates. Then do that. A lot. If she claims she doesn’t masturbate, offer to take her shopping for a vibrator so you can both learn the vocabulary of her body together.
Five: Don’t put anything in her butthole you wouldn’t want in your own.
(Footnote: Try a pinky finger, it’s kinda awesome.)
Six: When you go down on her—and you will go down on her, and if you are my son, you will be amazing at it—tell her how good she tastes. Stop in the middle and kiss her deeply so she knows how good she tastes. Do the same when she goes down on you.
Seven: A simple Google search will yield 1,327 euphemisms for male masturbation, yet only 23 for female masturbation. If guys spent less time jacking off and more time jilling off, this world would be a happier place.
Eight: Everything you need to know about the importance of the clitoris is in the movie Star Wars. You are Luke Skywalker piloting your penis-shaped X-Wing Fighter deep inside her trench. Remember: seventy percent of all Death Stars cannot be blown up through penetration of the trench alone. It must be through focused contact with that little exhaust port at the top of the trench. Otherwise, any explosions you experience will be merely Hollywood special effects.
Nine: Just because you come doesn’t mean she has, so don’t you dare come before her. Focus completely on your partner. Don’t worry about gettin’ yours, you’re a guy. You always get yours. Your job is to make sure she’s gettin’ hers.
Ten: If sex with your partner lasts no longer than this poem, you are not making love. You are masturbating with her body instead of your hand. Shame on you. Go back to step one. You’ve got a lot of learning to do.

Remember back in 5th grade, when everyone vowed not to ever do drugs
