O Anna Niemus (US)
German Shepherd: Collateral Damage
Her human companion was sent by
the unelected to Iraq.
With no other options, the soldier
gave her to a family which doesn't
She lies in the back all day, with no
her rope twisted around rocks or
young trees, her water pan
never filled. She is skinny.
She moans in loneliness all
She's just one more victim
of the family busting regime,
the one supported by
some 'family values' pastors.
