    23 million = underfed dog.... wth???

    I saw this and can't for the life of me figure out how the heck someone can make almost 23 million in 3 friggin years and have his dog taken for being malnourished???? Especially AFTER being warned! The guys got enough money to HIRE someone to take care of him full time, what a joke!

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,250780,00.html

    And why is it only on Fox news that I find all the really weird stuff.... lol



    I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter... the cast-offs of human society
    I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
    And I was Angry.
    "God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"
    God was silent for a moment and the He spoke softly.
    "I have done something," He replied.
    "I created You."

    I hope he doesn't fight it and get the poor thing back, thing is, people will be lining up to adopt this dog if he doesn't get it back, just because of who's dog it is... makes you wish that all the dogs in the shelters came from a famous home, they would all be adopted. I just can't wrap my mind around the fact that he was warned about it... it's not like he was on the road and whoever was supposed to be taking care of it didn't and he didn't know about it, he was warned and the conditions didn't improve... the sheer callousness of that is beyond me...

    Just goes to show that money doesn't make you smart, compassionate or good, or immune from the law.

    Maybe that is why I never see this kind of stuff. I avoid Fox News like the plague. They claim unbiased reporting but after just five minutes of watching, it is obvious that they slant decidedly to the right. And I cannot stand Bill O'Reilly. just looking at him ticks me off. My favorite uncle thinks that if it wasn't reported on Fox, it is either inaccurate or didn't happen at all. This same uncle thinks that Bush will go down in history as one of, if not THE, greatest president we have ever had. Goes to show you can love a man but you don't have to love his politics!!!!

    My Mom adores O'Reilly even though she disagrees with alot of what he says, she likes that he's a jerk and doesn't fake nice... I dunno... never said she made sense. Although I DID enjoy seeing him take on Micheal Moore who ought to be locked away in a room with Cheney somewhere and forgotten about.

    LOL---I cannot tell you how much I love the idea of Michael Moore and Dick Cheney locked in a room together! The deserve each other.

    Picturing that scenario totally made my day.

    My parents feel the same way. I just tend to avoid the news like the plague, I have enough to stress about as it is. And believe me I get filled in by my parents every time I visit. That's all they ever talk about

    But back to the dog thing. No excuse for it, I doubt they'll give him the dog back considering there was absolutely no reason for his dog to be starving. Also, the fact it's a pure bred great dane, this dog will get adopted out FAST (and it belonged to a famous dude).

    Almost? That is obnoxious, and bad for its health... whether or not he can afford to take care of the dog makes no difference if he's not going to anyway... it's sad how people can be so selfish with their money, even when another life depends on them. D:
