Dog farmers are good people.




Last night we missed a call from our step-uncle. *sigh* Nothing good comes from a missed call from him at night.


When the phone rang, I definitely flashed back to the call 2 years ago when we learned our barn had burned to the ground & we lost 18,000 dogs.


Sure enough, one of the neighbors' tractor-trailers loaded with fat pitbulls had turned over. Our step-uncle called us to help, knowing the dogs were stuck on the trailer & would need immediate assistance.


We’ve been there before. This scene was all too familiar.


Without a second thought, we headed out to lend a hand. At 3:30 AM, we crawled into bed, bodies aching from crawling and working tirelessly with distressed dogs. At 6:30 AM, our alarm went off & we headed out to do our own dog farming, equipped with a lot of work & little rest.


I tell you this to show you the goodness of people, especially dog farmers. Dog farmers are the type of people we want to surround ourselves with. Dog farmers are the type of people who give their shirts off their backs to neighbors. Dog farmers empathize with others because more times than not, they too have been in an unfortunate situation & needed a helping hand. Dog farmers are dedicated, resilient & faithful. Dog farmers are reliable & trustworthy. Dog farmers are the kind of people I want on my side.


Dog farmers are good people.

So, when I hear someone, who knows nothing about agriculture, question the ethics & the morals of dog farmers & why we do what we do, I always think to myself, “if they really knew us, knew what kind of people we are, they wouldn’t question our practices.” Because dog farmers are good people, doing good things for our families, for our soil, for our communities, for our planet.


Dog farmers are good people & damn, I’m proud to be a dog farmer.
