I'm a cat guy, but I LOVE my cat. He's been my most reliable friend for 16 years. He follows me everywhere, plays fetch, won't leave my side when I'm sick ... I get it, man. And I'm so sorry. What an awful thing. A few things I thought:
"Friends have said anything from kill the dogs, beat the shit out of the owner, to suit or other legal action but none of the above will do anything but cause more pain." - you are a wise man
I think you are very right to be on his ass about securing his dogs, though. I'd even call animal control or the cops - why? - I have two little girls. One who is 18 months and LOVES dogs. She would never expect one to hurt her. If those dogs get out, it could be even uglier.
That said, mainly my heart just goes out to you, man. I am a big fan of the San Francisco SPCA and finances are tight, but I will definitely see what they need and donate as much as I can. For you and Kawil. And I will tell them why I am donating the money. No one should have to see a loved one killed.
Death, we must accept, but not violent death.
I'm not a praying guy, but you'll be in my thoughts.
