    Reason #6,849 why dogs are better than cats

    And why some humans overflow with compassion while others leave small dogs in a box by the roadside

    I hate human

    One of our dogs who passed to doggy heaven last year had a similar story. Found on the side of the road with is litter mates who were run over multiple times. The vet tech's boyfriend found him and they cleaned him up and took care of him until he was about 6 weeks old. Unfortunately they also had multiple cats who like to annoy the puppy. The wife brought him home for the weekend, we had two other dogs at the time, and he stayed with us for 14 years. RIP Gibbs.

    We have a couple of rescued pups now.

    #27 – I survived a coma, so that I can be dressed like Santa. Sigh.

    #14 & #26 are definitely desktop background material.

    Sometime you just need to put them down. How much money do you think this cost these people. Personally, I could find a better way to spend it.

    Amazing story. Francis looks to be part Great Dane, an awesome dog in itself. I hope the person who abandoned this dog burns in hell.. I got my dog from an animal shelter, he's a hyper little dip shit but I love him.

    As someone who has three rescue dogs, a one-eyed Shih Tzu, a no-eyed Pekingese and three-legged Chihuahua, I love this post and all good recognition for Animal Rescue and Adoption. Chive On!!!!

      Congratulations, you almost have one full dog!

    Just awesome. People sicken me. All dogs want is to be loved. If they get that they're forever loyal. I can't imagine just leaving a puppy to die. I hope whoever did gets hit by a bus while crossing the street.

    I hope there is a special place in Hell reserved for someone who would leave an animal in a box by the side of the road.

    Love how this post was narrated like a children's book. Perfect fit.
