Death of family dog...

To the Editor,

About “death of family dog” - January, 13, 2014 - I hope that in the last month the person who murdered their dog “Tyson”has been caught and brought to justice.

Thirty years ago our family had a Springer Spaniel. One day he escaped from the house as our sons opened the front door on their way to school. “Greco” ran into the street. A young man in a jalopy deliberately ran over him gunning his engine and smiling he took off. My 10 year-old son picked up Greco’s broken body and carried him into the house, laying him on the sofa. Greco turned his head, licked Eric’s cheek and died. His ribs were crushed.

The life of our family had centered on Greco. He was included in camping, walks in the parks and woods, swimming. He was the center of our laughter, he was the glue that brought us all together. When he was gone, we dispersed and went our separate ways. Being born human does not give us value. Our dog understood what it was to love and be loved. It is hard to understand that there are people who get pleasure from hurting others.
