St. Francis (Frannie) was first reported to our group – Val’s Pals GSD and Large Paw Rescue – via another rescue named Forgotten Dogs of 5th Ward (in Houston). They are a group who has volunteers go into the 5th Ward area and feed the enormous number of homeless dogs. We were alerted to her on the evening of Wednesday, December 16th. The person who saw her noticed her eating on the carcass of another dead animal.

I’m at it again. Sorry; can’t help it.
Hey, I don’t post here at AB just to trash pols, journalists and judges/justices! There’s method to my madness.
ADDENDUM: And then there is this, posted this morning on the Washington Post’s website:
The dog, a brown and black Yorkshire terrier mix, only had a purple collar on its neck and could be heard faintly whining when a couple found it last weekend, abandoned and covered in urine and feces inside a crate outside an apartment complex in Alexandria.
They took it to a nearby veterinarian clinic where it ultimately had to be euthanized because it was in such poor health.
The incident happened Sunday, and authorities in Alexandria are offering a $1,000 reward for information in the case that leads to a prosecution of the person or people involved.
