Prince Harry

See if you can wrap your brain around this: You have to move. Maybe your mortgage gets foreclosed on, maybe you have to duck out from under a loanshark, possibly you don't want your local law enforcement to know you have skipped out from under your bail, but you have to leave your home. You pack up your things, you load up the car, you buckle the kids in and you lock the door. You drive away. You leave the disposables you aren't going to need or don't have room for in the house for somebody else to clean up and dispose of: old clothes, food in the pantry, the dog.

Yep. The dog. Meet Prince Harry, a dog who was driven away from. Fortunately, he was found before he starved to death or died of dehydration.

Just when we are convinced we've heard the worst humanity has to offer, we learn of a new low for humankind to sink to. Isn't it good to know there are folks out there striving to be first at something, even if it's the race to win the Sleazy Human award? Move over, Michael Vick. If we ruled the world, you'd be sharing a cell with Prince Harry's former people.

Prince Harry's foster mom sent this to us shortly after Prince Harry arrived:

Here is my very first little foster Frenchie, Prince Harry. He is indeed a Prince of Frenchies. I am in love with this little guy. He is only about 1 yr old and the perfect little dog. Found as a stray... he had been abandoned in his house by his previous owners. He was neutered and micro chipped, but they just did not want him. Horrible. But his future is bright because he will find a great new home. My whole family loves this little guy and he gets along with the other big and small dogs in my home. That is such a blessing. So happy to have him right now even if it is only for a short time. It will be hard to let this one go. He is so precious. I can see why folks are nuts about this little breed."

He is a precious boy. And he was left to rot by people who were unworthy of him.

We have a bookmark with a rather ugly sentiment on it. The remark is attributed to Mme de Stael, but there are many days we think most rescue volunteers could heartily agree with these words: "The more I see of [humanity], the more I like dogs."

Who calls 'em like she sees 'em?
