I KNOW this is a horrible photo. I KNOW it is a horrible story. But all of us need to stand behind this dog and the Facebook movement to bring the highest penalty to the man who perpetrated this dispicable act. This poor dog, who cannot speak for himself, died a miserable death. I cannot even imagine what he must have suffered. PLEASE, go to the Facebook page and lend your support. STAND UP FOR BUDDY. PLEASE! It will only take a moment of your time. I can't stop crying - I just can't stop...~Mimi

Jill Rosen A huge movement is building online to make sure that a man accused of dragging a dog to its death in Colorado is convicted and serves maximum jail time.
a German Shepherd named Buddy was tied to the back of a pickup and forced to run behind the vehicle as it climbed steep and snowy slopes -- for three miles. Buddy was found dead in the park last week, dumped there.
A Facebook group called Demand Justice for Buddy has attracted nearly 25,000 supporters, as of this morning. They want Romero to get the maximum sentence, which is three years in prison, a $100,000 fine and a year of mandatory parole.
According to officials at the park, tracks in the show Buddy initially walked behind the truck and then ran, and was then dragged when he collapsed. Park officials found him with a silver and blue rope around his neck.
