Me and my little brothers were getting off the school bus One day, when we saw a dog on the road she had twine around her neck in a noose, and her skin was growing over it, my mother took her in after cutting the noose out, and the dog stood still the whole time! We named her Penny, and she is a healthy, chubby dog now.
