Reggie The Egyptian Rescue Dog is Back: Why Do (some) Humans Hate Us Dogs?

In Egypt I was cursed, kicked, spat on and shot at. In human eyes I am a simple beast. Why was I thrown out in the street like an old rag? Why did animal control try to shoot and poison me? I can say you are mean fucking bastards. You are lowlife scum and yes you are.

I mean as a dog we are companions to humans and in Egypt guardians of the tombs of the pharaohs! I have the blood of the ancient pharaohs in me but I was treated as some low life scum. You know all we dogs want is to be cared for and if I can be sappy, to be loved.

When I have to go out and pee at 5 in the morning and bark to wake up Bob to take me out that is care and love. And to be taken up in the cold winter to snuggle under the covers that is love. So simple. So very simple but ignored all over the world not only in Egypt but in Canada and the United States.

What have we dogs done to deserve such abusive treatment? We are in your control and you hold our destiny in your hands. We are needing your love and compassion so why do some of you treat us so very badly? By doing so you show us and other caring humans you are not above the animal kingdom. You are scavengers and scum.

So why do you hate us you humans. Is it because we are animals you think are stupid? Excuse me humans. Those of you who abuse us are stupid and cruel. May the curse of the pharaohs visit your house! Those who abuse us are weak and seeking to exhibit power over us dogs.

But listen to me! There are those humans that love us dearly and treat us as a best friend and a precious soul. There are some of those in Egypt that are dedicated and caring so please I am not singling out Egyptians as canine killers. This sub strata of humanity lives throughout the world. For goodness sake in China, Vietnam and the Philippines we are treated as meat.
