When Eldad Hagar from Los Angeles-based Hope for Paws came across Cadence in a dark alley, she was covered with bloody wounds. Her injuries and their various stages of healing, veterinarians believed the pit bull had been used as bait in dog fights.

I could not stop the tears from flowing, that poor sweet little girl. I HATE each and every one that abuses animals! I pray they die a tortured painful death and go straight to hell. To see Cadence being so accepting and full of love for every one she came in contact with. Bless all the rescuers and doctors for all the kindness and care that was given to this beautiful dog. I wish I lived close by, I'd take her in a second! Bless you, baby, may you find your furever home with people who love you and will show you kindness, which you deserve, Cadence!
Thanks, Elke. Thanks for forwarding, Debbie.

As I sit here after reading the story, watching the video and sharing it with my Facebook friends list, I am still in tears and had to take a brief break to blow my nose so I could continue to breathe. This is as touching a story as it is angering. I've seen enough of these kinds of stories to take an educated guess that poor Cadence was most likely tossed aside after having been so abused -- left to die unless and until someone came along to rescue her. I'm touched, but I am so damn angry at people! People who think it's okay to do this -- who think that they're "just animals" and they can be "tossed out" like trash when they're no longer "useful" for their (meaning the @$@#$# people!) purposes. These kinds of people ought to be taken out and given the same treatment they gave this poor dog. and others like them. Because you gotta know that where's one, there have been and may continue to be others. It truly peeves the heck (self-censure) out of me! We human beings who despise this kind of thing (and the people who DO it) need somehow to convince our politicians to levy hefty fines and jail sentences on these jerks of human beings (I don't like calling them "human beings" but neither do I like calling them "animals" because we've seen how one wonderful animal treated his fellow creature). AARRGGHH is all I've got left to "say"!

We must find some "cool" celebrities who like dogs and who teens want to emulate- then find some fun thing that kids can do with their dogs like agility, flyball, doggie dance, whatever- and have the celebrity endorse the event, have prizes, etc. We must find a way for it to be cool to do the fun thing with their dogs and NOT dog fighting.....
