My mother likes Miniature Toy Terriers
In the mid 90's my sister was dating a guy who was quite sick, but at the time we did not realize just how sick.
They happend to be fighting which was quite normal.
One day he went over to the house, (probably to argue some more), and no one was home.
He went inside the house.
Now, I can imagine that the puppy went up to him to greet him.
He grabbed the puppy and threw it down the cellar stairs smashing it. Blood everywhere.
His punishment. A slap on the wrist.
No fine. Two years probation.
How is that for justice?
