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.
