Marigold the boxer

marigold-3I was going to write a late night post, but then this happened. This dog was apparently left laying on the side of the road for 2 days before a Good Samaritan stopped to pick her up. While I am disgusted with the people that passed her by, I am more appalled by her condition. She has had multiple litters of puppies, her nails are beyond redemption, she is bald, emaciated, partially blind, her ear is split in half and you will notice that she is missing a leg. She is dehydrated, her blood chemistry is way out of whack and she is unable to walk at the moment, but the vet thinks she will walk again.

marigold-2If you want to be rid of a dog, for the love of God, don’t be a douchebag* and leave it to die on the side of the road where you dumped it. I am so incredibly tired of the irresponsible and absolutely soulless monsters out there whose solution to an unwanted dog is to dump it as if will stumble into some magical fairy kingdom where it will live out its days with Tinkerbell and the lost boys.

Marigold the boxer is in the hospital tonight and will be for a while. If you would like to donate to her care, you can do so here:

*Yeah. I said it.
