Well, this is just gross. A man in North Carolina has apparently taken it upon himself to tattoo his tiny, innocent puppy's belly ... and then of course post a photo of it on Facebook. Ernesto Rodriguez is a disabled army veteran and father of three, and he says his 4-month-old puppy, Duchess, has the intricate tattoo to help ID her. His other dog, Duke, is sporting the same one.
"They both have it. They both have their tattoos on them just in case anything happens to them," Rodriguez said.
But he's got animal lovers all up in arms, many of whom are calling what he has done animal cruelty and demanding that the dogs be taken away or that he should be banned from buying any more pets. Still, it seems that Rodriguez has no regrets. But you gotta ask, hasn't this guy ever heard of microchipping?
