Things that make me go OOOOOhhhh Nooooo

Puppy with ucky dragging injuries being dumped at animal shelter.

I guess this shows whoever did it had SOME conscious, although obviously didn't want to be culpable.

My brother had a dog, a kind of beagle / basset hound mix, that had been dropped off at a shelter in Vermont, dead of winter. Rather than taking the dog to the building, somebody had just tied her to the mailbox at the end of the long, rural driveway. Luckily somebody spotted the shivering dog as they were leaving.

Of course why the dog thing gets to me when this stuff happens to PEOPLE all over all the time... that bears thought for sure. It is true, though, that at least once a day I read a story about some person or see something on TV that makes me just go "Oh, noooooo..." (And no, I don't mean stories about Bush. That count is up way higher than once a day.)

Sorry, rambling. Must go bed. Night.
