Here is Row, May 8, 2010, still waiting. He is blowing his coat and could use a good brushing - that will never happen. He will not feel a brush through his coat while he is at this "shelter".
Row has had his hearing continued to May 20, 2010. He still has not been outside. He still has had NO HUMAN CONTACT beyond a food bowl being put into his kennel.
His owner whined and complained that Row was going to have to be in a metal dungeon. Well what the @$#% is this? At least if he were taken home, his kennel could be outside so he could see the sun, yes, it would need a cover of some kind - but that cover could be made of the same chain link as the fence. He could see the sun, smell fresh air feel a little rain on his coat. He could be confined to his HOME inside a HOUSE with his people - if they gave a rat's ass.
But they don't, so my heart continues to bleed for this dog who is waiting, happy to see people when they pass his kennel...until the day that they stop.
I received this email from the state of Missouri today:
This email is to inform you of an upcoming court event involving the defendant MARY WILD and court case number 09JECR02236. A(n) Pre trial Conference has been scheduled for 5/24/2010 at 8:30 AM. This will take place in Jefferson, Division 11 Courtroom located at: 300 Main Street in Hillsboro, MO 63050.
I have not forgotten Jersey and the torture she went through as she lay dying in an overheated van during a heat wave in Mary Wild's yard. Mary slept in air conditioned comfort inside the house, while 8 dogs suffocated in that van with no water, no air...7 died. Jersey was one of them.
Mary Wild is showing again, people have seen her - breeders have paid her - have THEY forgotten?
I love to cook, it sooths me. I hate to clean. I eat chocolate everyday – it sooths me too. I hate the gym, but I love the way it makes me look. I love to grow things. I cry when they die. I talk to my plants. They don’t talk back – how rude. My desk at home is a mess. My desk at work is immaculate. I have too many shoes. I don’t have enough cookbooks.
I love my house and all the beings in it; my partner in life, love and crime – the fabulous M; my Akita kids; our new little lady Kat, and Jazz who is all that! And last but never least; the grand dam, Miss Penny, the alarm cat.
We mourn the loss of our Princess Niki and handsome boy Oso the best friends anyone could hope to have.
