    Wow… wow … wow wow… I got the same here with the local farmer and his dogs – I watched him beat a dog to death for disobeying orders … not humans, only dogs. But nonetheless, thanks for the horrible story… I crap on with my silly daily bits… thanks for the reality.

    The beauty of this is how succinctly you managed to convey the horror in one family. Excellent.

    Loved this. So much packed into so few words. I enjoy most all your stories…they tend to be on the good side of creepy or weird or haunting, right up my alley. Keep ’em coming.
