People toss unwanted dogs from cars onto the road, leaving them to their fate. Sounds crappy but it happens more often than you think.
The Brewers' camp is in a neighborhood of Phoenix called Maryvale -- one of the more run-down sections of the city.
The residences are about 80% apartments, mostly low-middle class, mostly Hispanic.
Milwaukee Brewers’ MVP (Most Valuable Pet)!
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
One of the best dogs we ever owned was a cock a poo, that someone left by the side of the road out in the middle of the sticks. We went out to check on some property we owned and there the little fella was, just waiting for us to adopt him into the family.
Good for Hank! Guess this means that Ryan Braun is no longer the clubhouse dog.
