White Dog could tell from the steely look in my eyes that this post was an important one. She nodded to Quinn and they both sat back and let me unleash my sword of justice. "You go,momma" White Dog whispered.

There is no more despicable creature in the Universe than an animal abuser...and one who trains dogs to fight and kill each other as wagering entertainment...well, I can think of no punishment extreme enough for that crime. But after seeing pictures of Shelby and reading her story. I know now that the lowest of the scum is the "human" who takes a weaker, more vulnerable dog and uses it as "bait" to instill bloodlust and "killer instincts" in fighting dogs. It is "people" like that who make me ashamed of my species.
Shelby had the good fortune to be found by Mona and the Mommy; people who make me proud of the potential of our species. These women are Angels who counterbalanced the horrors this pup had been subjected to by taking Shelby home, nursing her, getting her veterinary care, and just loving her. The physical damage done is great and so are the expenses. If possible, could you visit their blog, Mona and the Mommy, too! and read Shelby's amazing story, and make a small donation to help toward Shelby's long term medical issues.

Mack and his sisters are holding a Comment-A-Thon through Wednesday and are donating $1 for every comment left ($2 if you can figure out the answer to the mystery question). They are wonderful generous souls who are counting on the Power of the Paw to come through. They are so right to put faith in our incredible community because we care and rise up to protect each other. This won't strain the budget (because we know many are hurting these days) but it will help Shelby. Please at least leave some words of support, encouragement, and healing. Thanks.

P.S. Quinn's skin tumor pathology came back as "all clear!" It was simply a fatty skin growth.

What happened to Shelby and so many others like her is truly despicable. But she is one lucky pup to have come to the right home for help. We have pawed our comment already.

Great news on the results.

Glad Quinn is good to go - we will head to the blog. Animal abuse is so very horrible. Abusing those who can not protect themselves... makes me angry.

Great news for Quinn! As far as animal abusers, don't get me started! Animal and child abusers are the WORST in my book!
