Westminster Says "Shelter Dog" Ads Were Just TOO Sad For Their Audience???

 Seems that the Westminster folks don't REALLY care about dogs... oh, unless they are perfect.  Well, their idea of "perfect".    They've pulled Pedigree as a sponsor because they felt ads like this one:

were just too "upsetting" for their audience.  Can you imagine? They said people actually felt like they had to turn their heads or change the station because it was too upsetting. to see dogs behind bars.
 What kind of lame reasoning is that for not supporting these dogs who find themselves homeless through no fault of their own?  Turns out that they are in the shelter because their lameass  irresponsible human owners failed them, now it's going to cost 'em their poor little life......who wouldn't want to help a dog in need?  The folks at Westminster turns out... it wouldn't have even cost them any more money to do the right thing.   

We thank Pedigree for the work they do and the cause they support.  They are doing the "right" thing and it should be celebrated.  FOUR MILLION dogs and cats are killed with our tax dollars each and every year.  Our throw away society and our throw away pets---that should upset the lazy boy recliner folks watching the Westminster circus...... Just sayin'

We see this day in and day out and it breaks our hearts to know how many dogs that could be helped if we banded together to help solve this problem.
