OMG..I am so thankful that little puppy made it! Also, thankful that people are finally getting the light lit in their brain that this type of behavior must end.

People are so mean!!! This world and the people in it, sure are not like when I was growing up! Children need to be taught the difference between right and is as simple as that! If one hasn't had the proper upbringing, one doesn't know or care. Poor didn't need to be
this way for that little sweet girl. How sad!

I almost made it a whole day without crying , and then I read this story :( Setting a puppy on fire . For LICKING his son ! OMG !! SHE'S A PUPPY YOU ASSHOLE !! PUPPIES LICK !! And this jerk's a FATHER !! I fear and pity his small son .. Setting a living thing on fire seems an especially horrific form of cruelty , which can only be committed by somebody with a BLACK SOUL !
