This was sent over the Bouvier e-mail list by rescue buddy Margo Illing of http://ontariobouvrescue.net. It's about all the animals who need and deserve our compassion and help. An implicit plea to celebrate Christmas by saving a life. If you celebrate Hannukkah, perhaps you might consider saving eight lives. Give life back to an animal. To me it's a bit reminisent of Willam Blake saying "A dog starved at his master's gate predicts the ruin of the state" or Gandhi saying that a country's greatness could be measured by how it treats its animals.

The lighted window shows the room
The baby monkey in the lab
How can we speak of peace on earth
Come join with us at Christmas time
The lines about the baby monkey almost certainly refer to Harlow's experiments with Rhesus monkey babies given choice of a barb wire wrapped dummy that holds a milk bottle versus a warm fuzzy wrapped dummy.
Leghold traps are illegal in some areas but still used in others
The other instances of animal suffering are all too common and too ordinary events.
