THOMSON - For Kathleen Fervan, all it took was seeing a mother dog eating her puppies to survive. She knew something had to be done about stray animals in McDuffie County. During a trip to the public fishing area near Dearing, she picked up a mother dog and puppy - both starving and covered in mange. "I took them home and those devils must have ate about four bowls of dog food," she said. Although the mother dog did not make it, the puppy - now named Culberth - did.
