Cute dog. The article states the pup had some anxiety upon adjusting to the new home, but once he reliazed how great a soft couch & a warm blanket is that quickly changed.

I was scrolling through the reader's comments on the story and noted how one guy was talking about helping homeless people instead of worrying about a dog.

I think of this sometimes, how I can see a homeless person and a homeless dog and almost invariably, I feel more pity for the dog.

I think part of that is due to the fact that I can TRY to do something for the dog whereas it's not so practical or safe to help a homeless person on the street.

Anyone else struggle with this feeling of blocking their pity for homeless people simply because you can't do much for that specific person at that moment?
