I'm not sure exactly why I find this photo/situation to be quite so sad on this mother's day. A couple of days ago, this sweet little dog was found leashed securely to a fire hydrant in a community near Green Bay, Wisconsin along with a backpack filled with her favourite toys, food and a note explaining that her name was "Baby Girl", and that her owner, due to severe medical conditions, was no longer able to care for her.
She was left in a highly populated neighbourhood, in the hopes that she would be found and taken in... and that was indeed the case as a caring individual did find her, sat with her for a while, thinking that her owner might return, and when that didn't happen, contacted the Wisconsin Humane Society who picked up Baby Girl, and has taken her back to the shelter.
Baby Girl is being put through a series of exams, and will eventually be put up for adoption. She is about 6-years-old, very affectionate, loves to please, knows how to "sit" for treats, and enjoys a good belly-rub (who doesn't?).
Happy Mother's Day y'all
