Ignorant dog owners

Hi there, how’s your summer going? Mine is smauldering hot, I’m melting under the sun and wishing we were in November.
Now, let me explain about the post title.
First I must specify I love dogs and cats; my family has always had them—at one point we had two of each—and so I think I know about them.
Now, the people who live in the house in front of mine, just across the street, have recently taken in 2 dogs: one dog came around the same time as Rambo (last summer), the other is a puppy they got not even two months ago; these people have a big house and an even bigger garden…yet they keep both dogs locked in a small separated yard in front of their house. As far as I know, the only contacts the dogs have with the owners is when they receive their food, otherwise they’re always alone; they have food and water, a roof for when it rains or weather’s cold, toys to play with….but barely any human contact at all, as those people work all day and, when they’re home, I’ve never seen or heard them play with the dogs let alone let them interact with the family in the garden or within the house….and in fact those dogs howl and cry pretty much all day due to their loneliness. These dogs aren’t being physically abused; they get food, water, toys, a roof and all the basics, but neglect is none-the-less a form of abuse.
Which is why I’m very appalled and angry at those owners’ ignorance and irresponsibility.
Even children know dogs are pack animals and that their pack are their human owners; they like and need to be close to their owners, not just to be petted but simply to enjoy their presence and feel like they’re part of the pack, part of the family. Those people knew they had not time to dedicate to their pets….so why the fu*k did they got them!?
These type of dog owner is the worst, completely irresponsible and with no brain salt to see dogs are like us and need to be close to the ones we love; those people took those two dogs in, only to neglect and basically abandon them; I often wish some of my neighbours one day will report these people to the police—I don’t do it because I cannot adopt those dogs, because of Rambo—over the neglect they show to their dogs. It’s what they would, and do, deserve.
Sorry for the rant, but I couldn’t keep this inside any longer; it makes me so mad—now that I let it out I feel a bit better, though.
Sorry again, and see you on next post; take care, guys, and have a great week.
