    She said "it's just a dog" :mad:

    Let's try drowning her while saying :"oh, it's just you"

    The woman sounds mentally unstable. Hope she's found guilty and levied with the stiffest punishment allowed.

    It breaks my heart to read about so many instances of animal cruelty this summer. :guilty:

    If there's any justice in the world, these abusers should be treated just as cruelly if convicted of these heinous acts.

    I know that will never happen, but a girl can hope.

    I felt so awful when I heard this on the local news. I was thrilled to hear the dog was ok.

    It is an extremely crowded beach in the summer. I can't believe nobody stopped it when it was happening.

    That poor dog. What is wrong with people?

    I sort of wonder, why didn't the eyewitness step in? They said they witnessed the whole thing. If I saw someone drag a dog into the ocean and leave it underwater, I wouldn't just stand there.

    After being in rescue for many years and hearing stories like this I just really can't stand most humans. How can you intentionally hurt something that is living and breathing. :confused3 I will never understand. Thank goodness for the lady that stepped in!

    Yeah same here. We have weiner dogs and they get underfoot a lot so I sometimes might step on them or bump them with my shoe. I feel bad all day.

    According to one commentator on the story (from the link in the OP)...

    Here's hoping that they find a decent foster home for the remainder of this dog's short life. One of my cats had kidney disease and became incontinent. We ended up putting a diaper on her (which is something I NEVER thought I'd do, but she honestly didn't seem to mind).

    As for why the original witness didn't step in personally and instead chose to flag down the state trooper... for all we know, the woman trying to drown the dog was large and intimidating, as well as being drunk, and the witness was small and afraid. Certainly, based on the short video I saw, there may not have been anyone else close enough to see exactly what what was going on, on that stretch of beach (and besides, who pays any attention to strangers, when you're having fun in the water with your friends and family?).

    That just makes me very sad :sad2: I hope that dog is able to live out his life in peace and quiet. Diapers, pee pads one can do it with a incontinent animal. What is gonna happen when those ex owners loose control of their bladders? Are they gonna start beating each other. I swear people are the animals!
