Thank you so much for sharing that story mx3, I really needed a pick-me-upper today

As I was reading this story all I could do is picture this pup and his wiggly bum . What a sweetheart.

and, finally, to snug the cuffs firmly on your wrists as I arrest you for your thoughtless act of brutality.

So well put and BM!! my thoughts exactly!

wow.I have tears! I don't know who abandoned my bundle of joy, but I do selfishly thank thank them.

She has a temperament just like Charlie, with the added bonus of looking very intimidating when facing what she sees as danger. Just perfection.

I doubt he will ever find that brutal person, but it's a nice thought.

They're around! I can't count the number of times I've seen coppers drive up to the 24 hr emerg clinic carrying an injured animal. Nothing in their job description or Standard Operating Procedures requires them to do that ~ but, they do, they do and bless 'em all.

It does bring you to tears but then the more I see of (some) people, the more I love my dogs. I've had 3 dogs that I considered to be rescues of sorts, one that was shockingly traumatised and never got over it, so I am very glad to read that this poor pup is fine. Of course that was a short term trauma for it, whereas my dog had a year of Hell before I got him.
