Justice for LBD ( Little Brown Dog )

2 1/2 years ago, Oct..2009, a man named Jimmy Lovell tied a Little Brown Dog , who belonged briefly to his girlfriend, to his truck bumper and dragged her down the street intending to skin her alive. The good citizens of Knoxville, Tn. stopped him . Lovell got out, cursing at them, threw the dog in his truck and drove away . A few blocks later, he threw her out the window and she landed on the side of the road. A passerby picked her up and took her to the hospital.
That Little Brown Dog, or "LBD" as she was known nationally,  lived and flourished with the love and skilled care she had the entire time she was at UT Vet School.  They were the only place with the ability to save her! In spite of the reality  of a $5000 cost, they did everything they could to ease her pain and help her heal. Athena, Ginger and I started a Facebook group to make him famous and send him to prison,  We also wanted to raise $$ to compensate UT Vet School for their expenses.In a little over 4 weeks, the Vet School said they had "plenty of $$ now and people should donate it to their local shelters for their LBD's."

On Feb 21st, Lovell is finally going to trial , after postponements &delays. We presented a petition signed by over 5,000 people in a couple weeks  I printed the whole thing and  a good facebook friend, Angela Jordan, personally handed it to the DA's office for our group, on TV.  Last year a judge said there as enough evidence to hold this trial for one count of  Felony Animal Cruelty. This crime can be punished by prison time.
Read abut this on the group wall, share it with your friends. LBD is living the life of a princess now !! She was the Mardi Growl Queen in this years parade. You can see many photo's at the group. We are asking for any donations to go directly to the UT Vet School,  marked "LBD" fund.  These Dr.s work miracles every single day for many LBD's and all the rest brought into those doors.  Let's give them the "discretionary" funds they deserve to have.   Donation instructions on the UT Vet school web site and links at our group.
