Animal abuse CANNOT be tolerated! I don't believe in cruel or unusual punishment, but the slap on the wrist abusers get is pitiful. If anything really gets my blood boiling it`s animal abuse. I grew up having to watch my father beat our family dog on a quite a number of occasions. I remember feeling helpless to save him because I was afraid of my father. It was always over the smallest things like getting in the garbage and begging. I can never forget the sound of him kicking him in the ribs so hard it lifted a pretty large dog off the ground. When he started suffering pretty badly from doggy-dimentia me and my mom took him to get put down. I remember feeling his head go limp in my hands. It felt like I betrayed my best friend. He trusted me so much and I had killed him. We took him home and buried him in my back yard wrapped in his favorite blanket. I still have nightmares that he`s alive underground stuck in that hole and I try to dig him up, but never get there.
