    Tonight I came back home from the gym. There is a dog staring at me at the exit of the subway and she was soooooo cute and my heart was melting.icon_smile.gif

    She stares at me politely, wanted to be patted but wasn't approaching me aggressively. Just kind followed me a bit and was waiting something from me. I can't stop staring at the dog and I gave the homeless guy 2 bucks and ask him to feed her.

    It's not he first time I feel this way. For some reason homeless ppls dogs are always cute in my eyes. They were mostly well trained, quiet, a lil blue sometimes in their eyes.

    I just have the mercy right away when I see a cute & well behaved homeless dog. Some ppl told me they were starved a lot so they tend to have the blue/mercy thing with them.

    Anyone else felt the same?

    There is this one area where the homeless guys in their 20s/30s just hang out with their dog off the street, and I hate driving through that area when I hit a red light because I think of my little monster at home in the air conditioning and I have to give them money ... bottled water ... half of my Taco Bell order ... and one time an extra bag of dog food I had bought.

    I know how much my dog means to me. Anything I can do to extend their ability to keep their companion around them is worth it.

    Without a dog: the indigent get the 1%'s stiff upper lip from me. One of my friends tried to make a meme of me based on the Everlast song "What It's Like" after being in the car with me at the stoplight one afternoon and he changed the lyrics to "get a dog you fucking slob" when I normally get accosted for change outside of a liquor store or taqueria icon_lol.gif

    I have never seen a homeless person beat their dog though, they all treat them like a stuffed animal when I watch them. It is really cute.

    Personally, I find nothing "cute" about poverty in a nation of plenty.

    I feel like a horrible human being saying this, but when I see a homeless person with a dog, I feel worse for the dog than I do the person.

    I wouldn't feel bad thinking that way. Most of the homeless people made some choices and did some things in their lives that brought them where they are. The dog had no choice and is completely powerless against his condition.

    I don't feel bad for the homeless guy, I head to work at 7:00 in the morning and got home around 7 at night. A lot of them are young and capable to work but chose not to. Homeless guy was actually holding an alcohol bottle if I recall correctly.

    I do feel very bad for the dogs that's probly why I fell in love with them because they are adorable and well behaved yet they don't really have a good life, or even a bone to play with.

    I think its sad for both of them. The dog has no home and is living with a person who can't really take care of it properly (vet check up, frequent meals, cleanliness, and a home). That is just my opinion, usually when I see a homeless with a dog and look at the dog, it is usually sad looking or depress looking and lying there looking hungry. However, I have seen some homeless people that take care of there dogs better than people who have a home and the money to do it.

    Many of these replies are moronic. Dogs are social animals and love being outdoors. Why would they be worse off with a homeless person than someone who is around and awake ~5 hours out of every weekday? Too much food and maybe 2x30 minutes of outside time per day... I couldn't get a dog unless I moved to a farm or something similar. Or changed careers to something where I worked from home or could take the dog with me.

    There 2 kinds of homeless people with dogs , you have the one that use the dogs for sympathy expecting the people to feel bad for the dog and give them the money , and you have the ones that have a dog because they really care for their company ..Volunteering in an animal shelter that specialises in abused animals taught me a lot during these past 10 years .
    I always carry bags of dog food in my car ( the small kind ) , when i see a homeless person with a dog , if the dog look malnourished , i give them a bag of dog food , if the dog look nicely fed , i give some money . Sometimes i do both after observing how is the bond between owner and dog . I also have my regulars that i visit , the shelter i volunteer at help them when it comes to their dog care .
    Guys , stop sending money to these egotistics politicians and channel money towards you local animal shelters , they so need it !!!

    And that should solve his problems right? Every homeless person in the world is a lazy alcoholic idiot who just doesn't want to work? I guarantee you that guy has other problems in life that MAKES you sympathetic to him even carrying the bottle of alcohol. That you have practically no idea about because you're stuck in your safe bubble of gym, tan, laundry, gay subculture to even realize it. Read up on the Occupy Protests and get a clue to what even a small percentage of people like him and others are fighting about.

    And Chainers, you should feel like a horrible human being. Because, well..you are.

    I was watching the documentary "the Human Experience" and they were talking to a homeless woman and this is what she said.

    "You can't say everyone is bad. we've all had something happen to us and if you don't have a good family and friends then you're in a lot of shit (laughs)...When this first happened to me there were 4 dogs on the street with me, a dog. And everyone was on their cellphones saying oh I'll take this dog and I'll take that one. And they all helped the dogs. They all helped the dogs and they took the dogs home so they wouldn't freeze to death and they let me stand there."

    As much as I love dogs I feel worse for the people. At least the dogs have the tools and natural instincts to survive.

    Excellent. This is what I see every weekend. I split my time volunteering at a church soup kitchen and an animal shelter associated with my job. I love animals, that's a given. But there's people in this world who think they are "genuinely good people" because they are willing to help an animal but they have no empathy for their fellow human being. That's sick.

    Tears bitch. For someone preaching such a sad song for how good of a person he is, you sure don't mind being a headless (and I'll assume fugly) troll. For someone being here since 2006 you sure show how hard you work at the gym with 0 progress pic bitch! How about you try and prove you belong here instead of being a total bitch whore. Nuff said.

    guys, I didn't start a topic to fight so calm it down plz.

    I was just saying oh, shit, she was cute, and I helped her indirectly by giving the guy 2 bucks.

    so stop fighting and start handing a small bag of dog food to those who needs it, and buy a muffin/a small meal to the homeless guy/gal. maybe not give them money in case they can't control and spend it on alcohol or drugs.

    I have seen too many homeless people with dogs...and on one side, it breaks my heart, but on the other, I'm glad they at least have each other.
    My heart is most definitely on the side of the dog...they depend on US to take care of them. I rarely give money to a homeless person with a dog, but I DO carry dog food around in the trunk of my car....just for the little guys.
