The dog who was left behind


This is a photo of a one dog being rescued from its cage at the pound while the other looks on with great sadness. I made a screen shot of it off of a short video from DODO on Instagram. 

In a short sequence, for barely an instant, it reveals that terrible pain of some living being being left alone, incarcerated at an animal rescue shelter. 

The look on that dog's face is so,,, well, human! I don't know why it struck me so viscerally but it did. There you have it. We all live in a prison of sorts, and we are all left behind somewhere in that particular part of our brains. No matter whether we are all dogs, babies or small children. Life is suffering for us all.
