This is a very special post. It was written by a Dodo Contributor, a member of our animal-loving extended family.
It was the week before Thanksgiving and my kids and I were volunteering at Animal Haven shelter in New York City when a precious puppy named Christopher Robin was brought in. Days earlier, someone had cut off Christopher Robin's ears with scissors and left him for dead in a garbage can. It was surmised that whoever had done this probably hadn't been happy with the results and considered the dog dispensable. I'd have to use too many curse words to describe what I think of this, so I will just go on from here.
