BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A shelter in the Belgian city of Liege has opened its doors to dogs this winter to persuade their homeless owners to come in from the freezing cold.

The city's social welfare agency has agreed to house about eight homeless people with their pets at a local soccer club when it is freezing outside.

I have this thing about dogs:

The way I see it, is that we (the humans) have made a pact with them (the canines).

It goes like this: You (canines) promise not to eat us and we let you sit by our fire (come inside). I'm also a fan of anti-chaining laws.
