  1. This is just terrible. At least she could have given the dog up to ASPCA or something.

  2. It’s terrible when we read that a women has just thrown herself off of a 45 story building that we all walked by and all we can say is sorry the dog had to die? Are we that removed from human compassion / frailty that No one cares about anyone anymore? It’s too painful too true
