Mets Blob urges Blobbers to help stop animal abuse.
Forcing this dog to wear a Wright jersey is just wrong.
Normally Mets Blob is full of jokes about the NY Mets, the players, and the Wilpons. And though the photo above may at a quick glance seem like a set up for a big joke, it's not. In reality, it's a terrible form of animal abuse that hopefully all of us can help bring to an end.
Her name is Coffee. Many of us have seen her outside of Citi Field and Yankee Stadium in cute getups. She is almost always found in a fixed seated position with a pipe in her mouth and a plastic panhandling jug. We have even seen her in the opening of a Met game telecast on SNY. We've heard Gary Cohen chuckle and say, "How do they get that dog to do that?" Gary is a good man with a big heart, and if he knew the truth about Coffee and how her heartless dirtbag owner gets her to do that, he wouldn't be laughing.
At first glance, a dog hanging out on a nice day and dressed in a team jersey doesn't appear to be that bad. People think it's funny, and kids find it cute. Maybe nobody thinks twice about it, and throws a dollar in the plastic jug. But Coffee's book reads darker than the cover. What most are not seeing is the shock collar hidden under Coffee's bandana. If she moves off her set spot, she gets a quick zap from a remote control, and she quickly goes back to holding her place without food, water, or rest for hours on end.
In this photo, you can see that Coffee is able to hold the pipe in her mouth because her teeth have been removed. The device seen in the dirtbag owner's left hand is the remote to the shock collar.
From "The Sky Mall catalog for the Sick and Twisted," the evil, yet basic set up for the shock collar.
PLEASE HELP COFFEE
We all wish for Coffee to be free from her abusive owner and live out the rest of her life with love and kindness without having to get electrically shocked ever again to earn a buck for an inhumane, soulless scumbag.
Please sign the online petition and join the Facebook movement to help free Coffee from her suffering.
Mets Blob (and Coffee) thank you for the help.
