Taking a break from the norm.0
This is Guardian, my neighbor’s dog. For those of you who don’t know - My neighbors (a man and woman, and their 18 month old daughter) were the victims of a violent home invasion last Tuesday (June 26th), held at gunpoint and robbed. When the intruders fled the scene, the family dog raced down the street to catch them. He got one good bite in before the thieves were able to shoot him. Eight shots were fired in all (practically in my front yard) and three hit the dog.
The dog was shot THREE TIMES. (once, straight down into the back, and twice in his legs) He spent the night in an emergency vet clinic and was transferred, later, to our neighborhood vet. Our neighborhood is a historic landmark and a safe, quiet place. This event scared the living daylights out of every one of my neighbors. So, that’s why I’ve set up an online fundraiser to help offset some of the costs. If you can help, please do: even a couple dollars helps .. If you can’t, PLEASE share this link. These people have been completely violated, and their dog was very nearly killed in the process of protecting them. They’re wonderful people with a very sick dog. I am doing the very best I can to help alleviate some of the stress from the bills. They've been robbed, violated and terrorized; Please consider helping!

Here are some photos of him with their little girl from last night - He's home now, but still far from healed:
