Just read this story in my morning paper and its my first chance to comment. My first comment, I think the rescuers going on Ellen is cheesy as all get out. Many people do great unselfish things and expect no recognition, they wanted thier 15 minutes, whatever, I hope thier happy, and the gift cards, that makes it even worse, thats profiting from a deed, they should have donated those cards to a charity.
I lossed my dog of 11 years last month, I rescued her when I was living in Colorado springs. Its hard to say what we would do in a similiar situation but Ill try. IF and thats a big IF, I had to leave my dog, my ass would have been back up there the next day with help to get her, that is a fact pure and simple. As far as this dude goes, he's been jacked around enough, Ill leave him be.

Dog left to die on Colorado mountain; owner defends actions
"... He said he had paid almost $5,000 in vet and boarding bills. ..."

Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

The more horses there are, the faster the beatings seem to be:

And yet never mentioned/posted/linked as the Ellen show seemed to be the focus and that was same date of the last post. Hadn't read much of a version of the owner's side of the situation, only the reaction. Take from the article what you will.

...at some point the horse is going to come back to life just to ask you to stop beating it.

This story explains why so many people asked if my dogs paws were ok when we did the Sawtooth in mid September.
My fat old dog, Kia, was diagnosed with diabetes 2 weeks ago.
So how fat was this dog, if my overweight 10 year old diabetic mutt has no problem with that route?
