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.
