T he community is raising $4,000 so your 13-year-old dog can get surgery and ACUPUNCTURE? I get it, you don't want to let go. I feel bad for your pain, I really do. But what about the elderly animal whose pain you are cruelly extending? Perhaps I'm more angry at the people putting money in the chip-in account. Imagine the amount of poor kids who could be fed, the number of sick people who could be helped. An elderly animal is more important than your fellow man? I'm ashamed of you, Seattleites.
