A Tragedy For 100 Dogs

I'm a cat person even though I had two dogs when my children were growing up. I can enjoy other people's dogs but I'm glad I'm not the one who has to walk them or clean up after them but I was saddened and angry about a story I read concerning 100 dogs.

These dogs were used by a Canadian company that offers outdoor dog sled rides. This company along with many others was hit by the economic down turn of the past few years and chose a very despicable way to help their financial bottom line. After the Olympics, many of the company's dogs were killed! The owner of the company is now trying to explain his way out of this alleged cruelty.
