I read this, and I had to get up and walk away for a few minutes. OMG...
So heartbreaking. RIP poor doggy, may you never feel alone, hungry or thirsty again. Be happy and free over the Rainbow Bridge. I hope whoever did this has a long, unhappy life and pays each and every day for this!
Noted with tears.
Thanks Susan.

I debated as to whether or not to even post this here. The actual dog's body was shown on the local news, with one of the workers explaining the indicators. It looked much worse than this dog from the center. It was very emotional for me to see it. The St. Croix Shelter staff tries so very hard to fight this battle. I don't know if you clicked on the link to their site. I am guessing the party who brought the dog there was at the very least culpable(SP?) to what was done. Dog fighting is VERY big here! Also, the courts are not prosecuting based on the new animal cruelty law, even though we had to leave "cock fighting" legal to get it passed. Thanks for your comments, Kathy.
