COMMUNITY VOICE: Unfortunately, a true story

By Karen Robertson

Halifax County Humane Society President

The children are playing with a fat little puppy and over in the corner a contented cat lies fast asleep. But looking is all I can do. You see, I’m what the humans call an old stray dog. My ribs are showing, and I’m dirty. My paws are cut and bleeding, but I’ve no choice but to keep on walking. I don’t belong anywhere.
