On a recent day, having trouble focusing while working from home, I begin scrolling my way into the abyss known as Facebook.  You know you have been there too.  Not expecting more than political smears and cute kid co-workers, I happen across a post by an artist offeri...

Cintia Salazar Juarez pointed her camera left then right as she approached the heap of plastic bags vomiting trash from their overstuffed mouths where among them laid an unconscious dog.  Having received word and pictures via Facebook that a dog had been left to die in...

Having spent three years in Bolivia (1997-2000), I remember scenes of stray dogs scouring neighborhoods for something to eat, hanging out near restaurants hoping for a scrap to get through the day and generally moving around the city of La Paz attempting to avoid cars...

The next morning the little dog lay quiet but alive and when I touched his head he seemed to lean towards my hand.  In spite of what humans had or had not done to him he was still eager for contact.  Having fallen into the safe harbor of Cintia’s care, he would want fo...

A couple of hours off the plane from Boston and I was carrying a dog up the steps to Cintia’s house.  Placing his limp body on a blanket in the bathroom, we gave the pup a meal, water and a space heater (It’s Argentina’s winter).  Lacking the strength to lift his torso...

The dog was in real bad shape and not able to move, probably the result of a broken spine.  From his head to his rib cage he looked somewhat normal, but beyond his ribs what remained was a shriveled balloon.   A trip to the veterinarian would confirm a diagnosis but it...
