Grandmom's Defense of Stray Dogs



The saying "The Apple Doesn't Fall Far  From The Tree" is quite applicable to me. I have a lot of both my wonderful grandmothers in me and from one trickled down  not just the love, but the activism for dogs.


Beginning in the '50s   I believe, grandmom was a member of animal rights group like the Anti Vivisection Society. She dearly loved dogs all her life and in 1967 wrote this letter to the editor of the Pittsburgh Paper. I had never seen it until recently when my aunt mailed it to me. I'm so proud of her  , and reminded so many years after her passing, what a great lady she was.
