This man is insane, and not in a funny, harmless way.
Romney Dog Story.
That poor dog. What rational person does this? Is he so frigging cheap he couldn't have rented a trailer for all the crap they were hauling so the poor dog could ride inside the vehicle? That poor animal, a family pet, went through hours and hours of terror, strapped to the roof of a moving vehicle on the highway, so terrified he had diarrhea, and all his master did was hose him off and put him back up there. It's so bizarre it sounds like a joke, like a story from The Onion, but it's cited in several publications. I hope it's a fake, but at this point it appears to be true. Anyone who would treat a helpless animal, a family pet, like this...words fail me. Sick. I hope the story is a fake.
Edited: More here. Apparently it's for real, and I'm not the only one who finds it appalling.
