It Breaks My Heart

I saw this commercial awhile back, and it tugged at my heartstrings:

I just saw on the news how the police broke up a dog fighting ring, and they even found a dead dog, wrapped in a plastic garbage bag, in a freezer!!!!!  WHO DOES THIS!?!?!?!?!?!? Detroit has quite the reputation for dog fighting, and even having possession of paraphernalia relating to it is illegal (not sure if that’s the case in Tennessee or not).  The saddest thing is so many of them have to be euthanized because they’ve been trained to be vicious.  I have two dogs in Michigan, and they couldn’t hurt a fly…it’s just not in their hearts to fight!
