    This is the saddest article I have read in quite a while. I hope the dogs soul can forgive the man that did this. I said a prayer for you little dog, may you rest in peace.

    I firmly believe that all animal and child abusers should be required to have the same thing done to them that they did to their victim. I am so sickened by this.
