It is Christmas time which should be a time of good will toward all men and animals. I am sick at the thought that there are other dogs out there just like Elijah but without someone to speak for them and care for them, dying alone and unloved in some misbegotten place. I am unspeakably sad to know that there are people capable of such monstrosity and I am amazed at the grace shown by this poor dog toward people whom he has no reason to trust. These pictures were taken after he was bathed to remove all the blood he was covered in. I can’t bring myself to post what he looked like when we got him Thursday. This is what happens to dogs in rural areas in the South when they are left to fend for themselves and we should all work toward ensuring this never happens to another dog. I am sickened by the thought of what this dog suffered and I am deeply ashamed of my fellow man. Say a prayer for all those lost souls not in a home or a rescue and alone and scared on this cold December night.

I included this letter in my blog today because I must admit I am blown away by how cruel and inhumane that people can be to not only each other but to us helpless dogs. This story just deeply saddens my heart.
