Coffee and Provocation

Most Heartwarming Story You Will Read This Week
I will not tell it, but just say it read it (and yes there is a dog element) and then pass it on.

Florida, of Course
Luis Brignoni, 41, rushed out to his fenced backyard with a gun and killed his caged wolf-malamute dog when it bit the finger off this son, cut its stomach open, and retrieved the digit, carefully sending it with his bleeding son aboard a helicopter to a St. Petersburg hospital where it could not be re-attached.
