Here is an open letter to all of us humans from the dog.
I’m almost six months into this being a big brother thing, and I have to say, it’s not at all what I expected.
You being pregnant was the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. You spent extra time on the couch (read: cuddling). You even grew a perfect pillow for me to rest my head on. You told me you loved me, your firstborn, that you wouldn’t love me any less when my perfect pillow gave way to a squishy, smelly, screaming, tiny human-alien hybrid (oh wait, I didn’t know that part yet).
Black rescue animals have less chance of finding homes- even at our shelter.
Cats or dogs that wear a black coat are less likely to be adopted and if they are adopted it takes much longer. Is a little superstition really that influential?
A photographer set out to address this issue.
It was a summer day at the dog park when Fred Levy, a professional pet photographer, overheard a conversation that he couldn’t shake off.
A woman was talking about “Black Dog Syndrome” — a theory that black dogs are less likely to be adopted than those with lighter coats, perhaps because of superstition or a notion that black dogs are aggressive. Experts debate whether it’s a myth or reality, but it struck Levy.
“A dog shouldn’t be overlooked just because of its coat,” Levy said. “That’s a minor element when it comes to the dog.”
