There's a good reason that dogs are known as "Man's Best Friend," so it is hard to imagine how someone would feel if they had to give up their best friend because they can't care for them.


That is exactly what happened to the person who gave up their dog outside the Delaware Humane Association last week.

The dog, whose name is Sky, was found roaming on the shelter's property wearing a harness with a small bag attached that contained a note from her previous owner.



The note read:

Please take care of Sky she is 6 years old and friendly. I couldn't take care of her I became homeless and couldn't feed her. She is not sick just hungry very friendly. Please find her a home please.

Delaware Humane Association posted pictures of Sky on Facebook:



The caption reads:

"With each New Year comes new challenges and on our second day in, we welcomed one of our most heartbreaking souls yet. This skinny-mini's name is Sky and she was discovered yesterday morning by one of our easy-going dogs, who barked alarmingly at one of the normally uneventful corners of our property."
"This blue and white chocolate dipped girl was roaming freely with an incredibly oversized, spiked leather harness with a bag attached and a note inside saying, 'Please take care of Sky. She is 6 years old and friendly. I couldn't take care of her, I became homeless and couldn't feed her. She is not sick just hungry, very friendly. Please find her a home. Please.'"
"While we have all the questions in the world, we are just thankful this sweetheart made it to us before it was too late. We can't imagine this was easy for her former owner, so please refrain from expressing any negative thoughts you may have. Also, without further information, we have posted her as "found" on DAS in case there's a chance she was stolen from someone else. We are hopeful Sky's condition improves and her spirits remain high. The most important thing is, she is safe with us."
"If you are looking to start the New Year off in the most special way and want to help care for Sky and other animals like her, please head over to delawarehumane.org/donate/donate-now/#helping-hands, select restricted, and enter the note "Sky's the Limit" to ensure your gift is designated appropriately."
"If you are looking to help Sky get to a proper weight and safely, head over to our Amazon Wishlist (link here: smile.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/1GGJ22D04KQX7) to have items shipped directly to us such as Sensitive Skin & Stomach dry food, wet dog food and a variety of enrichment items, many of which will slow down her eating to help prevent further medical issues. Thank you all for your ongoing support! #SkysthelimitDHA"

Delaware Humane is seeking assistance in taking care of Sky, as well as any information about her owner. They would like to try to reunite them if possible, and are concerned about her owner's wellbeing.

Facebook users were both compassionate and understanding of Sky's former owner's circumstances.

Several people expressed a desire to help Sky's owner get back on their feet so she could be returned to a loving home.



Some pointed out all of the other dogs that are in desperate need of forever homes, in addition to Sky.


Many expressed thanks for the work that Delaware Humane Association is doing.



If you want to help dogs like Sky find happy forever homes, consider donating to the Delaware Humane Association, or to your local animal rescue organization!

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
