    I cried, too. I was even more impressed when I read that this family adopted him 3 years ago knowing he had terminal cancer. What unbelievable people to want to give a dog a beautiful last, few years!

    I have 2 suicidal OTTBs. They are, of course, my competition horses. My vet and I joke that they hide razor blades in their haynets and lead pipe in their water buckets. It's inexplicable how they...

    I read that it's the more dominant ones that have the problem when their "subordinate" is taken away.

    It's been a bazillion years, but I remember it. I believe it received quite a bit of acclaim. I know Graham Greene was wonderful, and since it was right after his Oscar-nominated performance in...
