What I'm Thankful For

Before we eat, I thought we could go around the table and each say something we are thankful for (I saw this on Dexter). I'll start.

I'm thankful for Good Samaritans:
BURLINGTON, N.C. -

Jennifer Mann said at first she didn't see anything wrong with Sadie, a chocolate lab, when she found her Thursday.

"When I got up to her, her whole left side was completely ripped back like a deer carcass. It was terrible," she said.

Mann recognized the dog and went to her owner, but the owner said he didn't want to help the injured lab. So Jennifer took Sadie to veterinarian Dr. Sharon King.
Ms. Mann is now trying to raise money for Sadie's vet care:
The "Saving Sadie Fund" has been created at MidCarolina Bank locations in Greensboro, Graham and Mebane. For more information, you can contact Theresa Vernon at 336-538-1600.
There is video of Sadie at the vet clinic at the link.

He didn't want to help? Uh, is there a way to get him on cruelty charges? Or, at the very, very least, let every media outlet - and put signs up everywhere - print his name in the story or all the appeal posters, so that people can know what a scumbag he is. Community condemnation - he'll pay somehow. (Yeah, I'm mean. Tough.)

Wishing you and yours the most blessed of days as we break bread with friends and family or spend our time as a volunteer with any one of the numerous charities in need of our time and talents.

Peace, plenty, prosperity - my wish for the United States of America.
