And we think WE have reason to be depressed ...

I don't usually cross-post between my two blogs; frankly, I prefer to keep the depression-related stuff in one place and the "lighter" stuff in another. But since my most effective anti-depressants came from puppy mills and not Wyeth, I've been tuned into this Michael Vick thing from the beginning.

Reading about Georgia and the abuse she suffered at Vick's hands is so similar to what many puppy mill dogs go through. And now his rescued dogs, the ones in good enough physical shape not to have been euthanized, are suffering mental health issues including depression and PTSD. That's Georgia, in the picture above. One of the volunteers is trying to help her learn to trust people.

Yet despite it all ... dogs have a capacity and an ability for forgiveness that we can only aspire to. Read the article. Look at the pictures. And if you can do something for them, do it.

Here is the link to the article:
