so i hike on out to chilliwack to pick up our three new little guys (saints welcomes: may, bruiser, and snickers …now known as nicky cuz we already have a snickers…at least for a little while more..) and i am pretty pleased with them all. may has some skin, eye, mouth problems but is a cheerful and happy girl and she is a senior shitz…. bruiser has ear, eye, mouth problems, a not so great tumour on his butt and probably cardiac issues..and while he is not exactly of the sunny personality persuation..he is most definitely a nice little guy..maybe a senior cocker/schaunzer cross? and nicky is just too funny…mr little busy butt and already my bestest little lap buddy with mouth, eye and ear issues plus his skin might be a tad yeasty for some reason….and he is a shitz/maybe terrier cross?
both may and nicky were adopted. nicky is in a great home and doing well the last that I heard, may became dawn's greatly loved Trudy who has sadly already passed away. bruiser is jenn's beloved foster dog bru, who drove me around the bend with his pining for her during her three week European honeymoon.
today was bru and may's day in court..2 years after their arrival here as spca cruelty seizures..they finally were given their chance to seek justice for the neglect and suffering they had endured.
I don't know if they will get it, our animal protection laws could be a lot better. what I do know tho is...all three of them left their painful, neglected, shitty lives behind them and had the chance to live something so much kinder, better, and happier.
thank god for the SPCA cruelty officers who have the strength and courage to do their job!
we fostered some dogs from a puppy mill situation once,
wire cages stacked 5 high and in a cold garage. We saw
the pictures the cruelty officers took. Poor dogs had
a lot of issues but did get better, enough to get loving
homes. We went to the trial of the terrible monster
who had done this, and you know what? She looked like
an ordinary housewife, no horns or crazy eyes. She
tried to give an explanation for what she had done, and
place the blame on others. She lost the battle to get
these guys back, but I always wonder what she is doing
now. Has she got more dogs? The spca only found out
about her from a tip from a disgruntled employee. Hope
Marcy Moriarty beats these guys up.
