Go, Phoebe, go!



The talented John Pendygraft of the Times with the pictures and the words:

On a quiet Wednesday night a little more than a year ago, Mike DeWitt turned on the evening news and saw a picture of a pit bull buried up to her neck.

She had been shot twice and left to die. Trapped.

It flipped a switch.

"It was instant. It was profound," DeWitt said. "I get that."

DeWitt had been trapped once, too.
