I'm literally sat here crying over a dog I dont even know
all I had to read were the words 'dog' and 'died'
yet another dog sacrificed itself for pitiful humans
he could have been saved
he could still be happily frolicking around right now
but no, he had to save disgusting humans.
sure, i'll feel remorse for a human baby.
but i just read any post about animals and it takes only a few seconds for me to cry my heart out. it hurts so much to sit here not being able to do anything while innocent animals die. none of them ever even deserved this. my main point is that this world is so damn cruel.. it has me crying right now and i can't move a muscle. my heart feels too heavy and hurts so much right now. everything is just so fucked up. humans make everything worse. it's so annoying that all i can do is sit here and sob until it hurts too much. please dont tell me to stop being such a wimp or to just accept that this happens. it wouldn't help at all. i mostly needed to just vent about this.. but if you have any advice, please.. it hurts too much to keep on hurting.

If you love animals it's never pleasant when you read about one dying in cruel or unpleasant circumstances. I love dogs and so I too struggle to read about any particular cruelty involving dogs. The world is not cruel in itself, it's just that some human beings can be cruel. It's important to remember the word 'some', because for every person harming an animal there is a person loving or trying to save an animal. You can't only focus on the bad in the world, you have to also give time to the good in the world. There are plenty of clips available on Youtube of human beings risking personal danger to save animals in distress.
Also, sometimes those who commit cruel acts are the products of cruel acts. Not always, but sometimes. We are quick to condemn evil acts but often we don't see the whole chain of events. Suffering doesn't justify suffering, but if we had a better handle on why people turn out to be cruel then we might be able to prevent more cruelty in the world. If an abused child turns into an animal abuser, we as society failed that child long before they ever failed society.
Death happens in life, every day and across every species. More insects, plants and trees die in the world every day than animals. If we start to discriminate about which forms of life are more important then aren't we just as bad? We cannot let every death stop us from functioning because we'd be emotional wrecks. Try and remember that every death is met by new life in most cases. Nature has a way of balancing things out like that. Focus on the positives and use your energy to make a difference to things that upset you. Getting upset in itself serves nothing unless you get up and change something.1
