Ruby was a dog who showed up in my yard one summer day in 2000, dragging a heavy chain attached to her thick neck with electrical tape, hopping on 3 legs- skin and bones, obviously mother to many litters. Abused she had finally escaped. She died in the early hours of May 28th. I hope I did right by her. Please give a thought for Ruby and all like her, there are way too many like her. Q.
