patrick the Miracle dog. I have followed this and his site that has now saved so many in his name, since this first hit the news.

Its completion "would eventually wipe the criminal charge from her record. She has previously rejected the state's plea offer that calls for up to 18 months in prison, a $5,000 fine and 30 days' community service," reports the New Jersey Star-Ledger.:thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown: mind you he was thrown down that chute in a trash bag and if he hadn't weighed no more than a dried up leaf, the fall alone would have killed him.
