True story or urban legend?

    Somebody told me something that has kind of bothered me ever since. Sounds plausible, but I honestly don't know if it's some sort of urban legend or the real deal.

    The story involves shallow gays who will purchase or adopt a dog (almost always breed) to show off during the summer at popular locations like Fire Island and, once the summer is over, they will abandon the animal somewhere.

    I'm sure it's happened, but I cannot imagine this being a common occurrence? At least I hope not.

    I don't think it's just gays.

    Gay, straight, male, female.. I hate it when people buy pets as fashion accessories. I especially hate the hood rats that get pit bulls as an extension of their masculinity. Ridiculous.

    It's sad, but a lot of people get dogs then abandon them when they realize that it actually involves work and they actually have to put effort into training them and taking care of them ... or they leave them home alone all day long ... or outside in the heat and cold ... makes me sad icon_cry.gif

    That pretty much sums up why I haven't adopted a dog. As much as I want one, I can't because I work crazy hours and the dog would be alone at home all day. I can't do that to a dog. Thank god I have friends who have dogs that I can play with from time to time.
