Responses of the Weird

Responses of the Weird

Sometimes in the course of human events it becomes necessary to give away a few pit-bull puppies. I, being of sound mind, am reluctant to give them away to someone such as the writer of the letter in the June issue of online Ink 19 [see last month’s “Weird Letter of the Month”].

Finding homes for puppies is a double-edged sword. I am, in principle, opposed to the selling of flesh. On the other hand, I tend to believe that if someone has an investment in an animal, they are more likely to provide it with the care that it deserves.

When I determine a price for an animal, it is not based on greed or a profit motive. The price is based on what a decent piece of meat would cost. I feel that this would assure me that the animal would not find it’s way to someone’s dinner table. This is why I refused to give the writer a puppy.

I hope this settles that controversy.
