The Bad and the Good

There have been two pup stories in the news lately that have touched me. One is about the horrible situation that happened at High Caliber K-9 Kennel in Youngstown, Ohio. The story (with graphic pictures at the end, so don't scroll down all the way if you don't want to see) is here. For a more personal approach to the story, you can also read a webpage made by the family of one of the dogs that was starved to death at the Nitro Foundation.

The other story is one that I just saw tonight and that nearly made my heart leap out of my chest with it's adorableness. It is about how a stray pit bull saved a woman and child from a knife-wielding attacker. As the woman made her escape in her car, the dog jumped into her back seat. If he is not claimed as a stray in five days, her family plans to adopt him. I think that's so amazing. Read it all here.

Wroo! We've missed reading about you guys! Hopefully, we'll be keeping up better now.

We didn't read the first story, because it sounds really sad and The Girl is fragile today, but we heard about the second one! It was so wonderful to hear a positive story about a Pit Bull, and what a brave and courageous act!
