Would you abandon this doggie?

3/18/2010:

Dog ownership is a serious commitment!

This black Lab apparently was chained to the fence for many hours this morning – and Hoboken411 reader Caroline said:

“Dog appears to be abandoned, shivering and frightened. Cops were called. Corner seventh and garden.”

In fact, if you’re listening to the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel – they’re trying to figure out what to do with this pooch as we speak!

My brother-in-law did this with his dog once overnight. But he and my sister had a new baby and rarely slept at the time. He ran out to get something at the store on their corner just before it closed, took the dog and forgot about him until the he got up the next morning to find the dog not begging to go out. A woman by the store took the dog in late that night and told the people at the store when it opened and all was well. My b-i-l and sister felt terrible and the dog was given many treats and forgave and forgot. Sometimes s@*? happens.

It’s only March, but I think this pair is a lock for the “Douche of the Year” award.

I’m right there with you Nacho. Douche of the decade award for sure. Wonder what the presentation was about? Guy probably wrote a book and was pushing it, the title is “Why does everyone I know call me a dumb ass?”

That scene kills me every time. Some friends of mine watched it for the first time before hosting a party, and spent the first ten minutes of the party crying and holding their dog.

It’s based off the true story of a Japanese dog named HachikĊ, which was recently adapted to a movie with Richard Gere. A professor has a heart attack while at work, his dog waits for him for nine years, returning to the train station where he used to meet him, every evening. There’s a statue dedicated to the dog at the train station, who was idolized by the nation as a symbol of true loyalty.

Thanks for embedding the video, H411. I tried just including the link numerous times, but the comments just wouldn’t go through. That’s the only reason I tried to embed it.
