A Shocking Before and After

This is the same dog. Really. This is Grace, who was rescued from Dead Dog Beach in Puerto Rico and is now in the loving care of Katie Block, a Baltimore-based activist whose Island Dog organization is working to bring awareness to the plight of dogs in the U.S. commonwealth. P.R. is getting lousy PR for a pet-massacre scandal, and Katie joined Emily and guest co-host Dayvid Figler on "The Petcast" to discuss the situation. You really should take 20 minutes and listen to that show, Episode 115, by clicking here or save it to your computer by right-clicking here. Or, better yet, subscribe (free) to the show via iTunes here.

Either way, when I received these pictures in my e-mail yesterday, I felt compelled to share them. That dog was hit by a machete, we're told. Amazing.

What a sad story. Yet on the other hand it is good to know there are people out there that are willing and able to help.
