This is Patrick.  He is a dog who was rescued from untold abuse and neglect in New Jersey just before St Patrick's day (hence the name.)  His owner tossed him in a trash bag down a 22 story garbage chute, but only after starving him for months.  I have been following his fight on facebook.  Donations poured in, and the vet hospital he is in had to stop people from continuing to send money!  That is LOVE- over 30,000 people joined his facebook page to watch his progress.

Thanks to Patrick, there are many great things stemming from his community!
