We’re busy people. Work, school, domestic duties, families, social lives, etc. When you become a caregiver for a pet, the responsibilities for your furriest family member become a top priority. Unfortunately, in this busy world we live in, many people tend to rush some of their dog’s most basic needs. It’s common, it happens, but we can make changes that will improve the lives of our dogs, as well as our own. To really emphasize the importance of this, “Saturday Night Live” alum, Molly Shannon teamed up with PETA for a new public service announcement reminding us that our dogs need and deserve our attention and time.

In a video titled, “It’s Their Walk,” Shannon pairs up with comedy writer Mike White to show that our play time and walks with our canine companions can be so much better. The video is cute and funny, but definitely gives the viewer some perspective on how those rushed, leash-yanking, distracted walks really are for our dogs.

PETA says, “When we don’t make the time for them, our dogs are the ones who suffer. A walk is often their only chance to explore and sniff and roll in the grass. So let’s put down our phones, stop yanking on the leash, and give our dogs the time to enjoy being dogs! Can we do that for our dogs? After all, it’s their walk.” Check out the video and share it with your fellow dog lovers.

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
