rescue so sucks sometimes..it sucks in so many ways that no one even knows....it sucks so big sometimes that i truly wonder if it is even worth being in it at all.
i just got off the phone with a nice man who's dog was stolen last week. he wants his dog back. he is not getting much help from the police so he is trying to do it on his own.
the problem is (sorry sir, if you are reading this..no offence intended but it is true)...he sucks at it too.
he found out that it was a carol who lived in mission who had a bunch of dogs living at her house and drives a volkswagon, who stole his dog. he did a web search for carol's who do rescue and live in mission and came up with me. i don't steal dogs (i am too busy) and i don't drive a volkswagon but the other stuff fit so it was an honest mistake.
he came here last weekend posing as a potential adopter and had a tour..his dog was not here, but he correctly has learned that dog thieves do not keep dogs they have stolen on site (cuz that would be stupid in the extreme) so he called me to ask me if i have his dog..i said no..he wants to believe me but he is not really sure he should.
during his investigative work, he googled searched my daughter jenn and said he found out where she lived in burnaby. jenn does not live in burnaby but that does not mean that suddenly jenn's mother is not really upset and actively nervous that some unknown man is googling my daughter because he thinks her mother stole his dog.
i can handle that he came here without disclosing who he was and why he was really here...this has happened in the past, it happens sometimes., it is a real risk in rescue. i accept this...but it happens to me..it does not happen to my family.
so i would like to say here publically...please leave rescuers families ( especially much beloved daughters,) out of rescue underground activities...i may just have to get a gun and shoot the next person who tries to google search the address of one of my children...mothers are funny about that kind of thing.
and secondly...whoever has this man's stolen dog (PB german shepherd, female 10 years old with a breeders tattoo, stolen about a week ago from his yard, i think in burnaby.)....give him back his god damn dog because neither myself nor my daughter should be subjected to the very real and not nice consequences of other people's decisions and incompetent actions.
give the dog back or i might get a gun and shoot you too because you are obviously too stupid to be an even remotely competent dog thief...leaving half assed trails that made the mistaken and incorrect quantum leap right to me and my family.
the more i think about this, the more pissed off i am...on very many levels.
