The puppy got a life sentence and you ask if Boyd should be given the maximum sentence?!? This women need MORE than the maximum sentence and it is time that the Law recognized to coralation between anima abusers and child abuse, molestation and rape. This womens defence was that she merely "TOSSED" the pup accross the room and I ask you this......why would you impose you over controlling behaviors and "TOSS" any living creature (human or animal) accross a room? No matter how much time that she gets, she will get her punishment when she goes to Prison as they despise child & animal abusers. It will be done to you what you did to that poor pup. Lets see how bad you are then lady Boyd. You get what you get when you do what you do. Good riddence and so long!
