I can't believe they actually gave the woman's name in the article and news report. I also can't believe she is only getting a $414 fine. She also said it was an accident...seriously? Does she really think we are that stupid?
A star is born.@Christy -- see local Fox news story from a few days ago (maybe link a few blogs ago.) Apparently, the court system is that stupid.
Unbelievable. How can this woman be so ignorant to say this was an accident? Accidents happen. What?? I do hope nothing serious happens to her - accidentally, of course. Do I? So happy Sweetheart is on the mend. Keep going, baby!
edit: and oh yes - why did she only come out at night to feed the dog? isn't this animal abuse enough to keep a dog in a cage/on a lead/even in a house for 24/7 and just come out to "feed" it? and what did she feed her? air? send someone in to sort this woman out, please!
How unbelievable is that Story coming out of her Mouth. How could she not see the Condition this Dog was in? Unintentaly, does she think we are all stupid. Send her my Way, I will feed her only in the Dark outside , tied to a Tree and see what she will look like in a few Weeks??How heartless can you be.
To all who watch the newscast and view the blog: Please try to refrain from posting anything that could be construed a remotely threatening to her former owner. This blog is meant to be about Sweetheart only, not her former owner. If anything were to happen to this former owner, this blog would be looked at first. I know that might sound silly and I know what happened to her is really upsetting but I do not want anything threatening towards the previous posted on this blog.Thank you to all of you who have stuck with 'us' through this. Tomorrow is the three week anniversary since she was rescued from the shelter. She is doing fabulous and is getting stronger each day. Please stayed tuned in the weeks and months to come for more Sweetheart stories!
And no, she doesn't think we are that stupid, she just knows that if she said that she meant to do this to the dog she WOULD face felony charges and should would look even worse than she already does. She knows what she did and she is the one who has to live with it. We are better people and get to give our love to Sweetheart and watch her grow fatter and be happy, even if it is just through the blog that some of you can do this. :)
Speechless overhere.But not over Sweetheart, she looks so much better!
Sadly, she probably WON'T live with it. To go on camera and say it was a mistake is someone who isn't taking responsibility for her actions.There needs to be a change in the laws that make all animal abuse felonies.
