We will never understand the nature of people who harm animals. There is no excuse, even animals destined for slaughter should be treated humanely. In parts of Asia, even where it is illegal, dogs are still consumed for food. The slaughterhouses are run in back alleys to avoid detection. The way they operate is simply barbaric.
This story is tragic. However, one animal rescuer proved that with love, anything is possible. A slaughterhouse ’employee’ separated a pregnant dog from the pack. Then he did the unthinkable. Without going into too much horrific detail, he killed the mother dog and cut her babies out. One was still alive. He took the surviving pup and threw her out into a puddle, and left her to die.
The rescuer heard what happened and came as quickly as he could. He knew helping the premature puppy would be a tough battle, but he couldn’t just let him die. So he took it and took it to his house. The rescuer asked a friend to come with a baby bottle to feed him all the time.
He called the baby “Blu” and loved to call him an angel.
The rescuer didn’t mind waking up all the time with his whimpers. He kept him warm and fed him. The next day he took him to the vet. The vet gave him a dar foresight. The pup was so young and premature that it was unlikely to survive. BUT… this was his opportunity to teach others about the cruelty of the dog meat trade.
Blu could be a lawyer.
Blu didn’t just become a lawyer; He became an inspiration. Rescue friends heard all about him and came to find him. They were impressed by his tenacity. They were also horrified to hear about his birth. It motivated them too!
Rescue friends, who have never been involved before, were inspired. They joined him in the fight to close the slaughterhouses.
To this day, China’s cities still hide this dark secret. In smaller villages, the laws are not even enforced. The dog meat trade continues. Small lives like Blu’s are lost every day.
Although, yes, it is easier to close our eyes and remain happily unconscious – yet it does not help the needy animals at all.
Raise your voices to dogs like Blu. Animal abuse will not be tolerated! The dog meat trade needs to end! And the callous butchers who continue to operate to keep their pockets MUST be held responsible.
Our part is to continue sharing these stories and talking about what’s still happening! Every animal matters, whether they are in this country or in another part of the world!
Just as the butchers intended, Blu eventually lost the battle. He became very ill and the rescuer felt it was inhumane to suffer. He died without pain in the rescuer’s arms.
Blu is now officially an angel. The rescuer continues to fight in his honor. Blu reunited with his mother across the rainbow bridge.
God bless you, Baby Blu.
