No, this isn't a Photoshop Disaster, Sasha and Malia's new dog only has three legs.
The above photo shows Obama with "Baby," a three-legged dog that lost its fourth limb following years of mistreatment at a California puppy mill. The toy poodle spent much of its life locked in a small wire cage. The breeders cut out Baby's vocal chords so that they would not have to hear her cries. In cages next to her, other dogs literally went insane, spinning repetitively with blank stares. Still others were gravely ill, maimed and had filthy, matted coats. A number was tattooed on the inside of Baby's ear, marking her as just one of many dogs at the mill.As an animal lover and rescuer myself, and one who cannot bear to hear Sarah McLachlan singing over photos of shelter dogs, this story mad me cry my own tears into my coffee.
