Recriminations tend to focus on   how Americans pay for health care , and on   our hospitals and physicians . Surely if we...

When the owners of dogs die they frequently leave behind a pet that has no where to go and no provisions are made for it. It's a very sad situation.  One of the dogs wants to tell you his story.  Hi, my name is Zeus and I'm 11 years old now. I'm a pretty big fella, around 95 lbs and I'm a iron colored Pit Bull.
