I'm happy i could help the dogs across the street, but where does this abuse end! I can tell you what i saw, the gate was left open and the dogs got out! they even came over to my house to eat old bread i had left for the birds! the father gave his 5 year old a belt to chase the dogs back into their yard, when back in the yard, the litte girl wacked both dogs on the back, i could hear it over here! The father stood there laughing. thats where it all starts, the parents abuse and teach their children that it ok to hit, kick, or poke your animals! But this has to end somewhere! These people, and all abusers should not own, or even be around any animal at all!!! This is just my opinion, but i think alot of people will agree with me on this one! Thank You!
