I respect and love animals. Some of my best friends are animals so I hope that other animal lovers among you have been following the story of Herbie, the abused dog, in Lorain. For me, this is not the story of an abused dog as much as a story about the friendship and love between a fine man and a noble animal. My friend Rick “Doc” Broz one of Lorain’s finest has shared a very personal and moving part of his life and the life of Herbie, his dog. Their story has moved thousands around the world. It was a story of the evil that men do against these beautiful and innocent animals and how one person at a time, it is possible to make a difference. Please read Justice for Herbie on Facebook and if you are so inclined, attend a memorial for Herbie this Saturday, 3/23. Stand up and speak for those who cannot.
