Thread: Self Defence I Guess ?

  1. #1

    Default Self Defence I Guess ?

    Sorry DA but I feel I really need to answer to just one or two of the things I have been accused of,I do not want this thread to be a free for all and if you have anymore slandering to do I ask you kindly not to post.

    Di ; I never ever once asked for one red cent. Why the hell would I ?
    That is a blatant lie and you know it.
    As for River i didn't have a roof over my families head,how on earth could responsably take on another dog?

    In fact I have never asked anyone for money (apart from one close friend and the 30 was paid back promptly).
    If you would care to do a search on DOL you will in fact find the threads where I was blown away by a group of people who got together without me knowing and donated money to myself and Shane.A sum of money that we both strongly said no we cannot accept it.It was a done dusted deal we were told.
    It was a group effort ,done purely without my knowledge.
    I did not ask for any money off anyone.

    As for the accusations about the dogs. Firstly I find it the absolute hight of bad taste to bring them up in such a manner. The absolute heart ache I went through with those dogs was something I would not wish on any of you.I actually thought Clea could understand that considering her situation.
    It seemed I was always ending up with the too hard cases,the dogs no-one else would touch.And when it came time to be the one holding them and crying softly saying I was so sorry over and over again as I sent them to the Bridge , no-one else was in sight and later I was accused of being cruel ? That I didn't try enough ? Well you were quite welcome to step upto the plate yourselves you know.

    I am not going to apologise to anyone for anything.
    I've always tried to do the best I could with what has been dealt me and I will continue to do so for as long as I'm able.



    In the end I'm not even sure I should post this but but the rumour mill is working over time and the stories just keep on continuing to grow and get further from the truth so this is my say and my final say.

    To those who have shown their support and emailed me and called me I thankyou from the bottom of my heart.

    I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be.
    I am not some monster though either.

    I'm not going to shoot you Kye...........yet

    I do understand what you are saying which is perhaps the biggest problem of all.
    An awful lot of assumptions were/have been made regarding me in the last month or so and we all know what assumptions are likely to do.


    I would think that after my mistakes 3 years ago now that I would of thought to of learned a little from them.
    Perhaps an email to me would of been more acceptable then to other 'strangers' who do not know me or my situation.


    Once again,not sure if I should post this or not but I guess it cant be any worse than what is being said through the rumour mill

    Yep I hear what you're saying Kye but that is what I tried to get across last post. Rescue dogs are desexed.

    The other stuff is not an issue right now ,it was a matter of making things a tad more simple (hopefully) as I was not in the area of the pound. I have a wonderful vet here who is on board with this as is the local Ranger and Co-ordinater at Council,both who we've known for years and we are obtaining our own clause and registering the org.

    Anyways,I've had my say and at least I feel I've done all I could

    I didn't know Benny was back with you !! What happened there ?

    Bullyt I don't think the main upsetting things were borne out of folks raising genuine concerns, but out of some of the really nasty stuff written in emails and sent to strangers and apparently even pounds (?) as "warnings". Stuff that genuinely disgusted some who received it.

    Some people involved in rescue are very quick to attack others for whatever personal reasons they have at the time. Personal attacks and defamatory emails are often sent under the guise of "warnings" and "in the best interest of dogs" etc etc when they are nothing short of schoolyard quality backstabbing and bitching.

    Some people need to get some spit polish onto their own halos before they wave them at others. Everyone is human, to err is to human. I've seen some rescue folks go after people before, it's not pretty and this one is far from an isolated incident. Sadly this behaviour puts many people off involvement with rescue, leaving more dogs in the lurch.

    People working in dog rescue should be embracing new people into what they do. It's not an exclusive club like some people treat it. Whether those new people are people who've never been involved or people returning after whatever has gone on in the past. Mentoring and assisting is a far better option than slandering, and works out for the dogs which is the whole point.

    Anyone putting their hands up to assist with rescue of bull breeds and their crosses should be embraced and nurtured within rescue as so many groups are unable to help such dogs.

    Yep, REALLY well said Natty....... Far too many egos in rescue at which the loosers are sadly the dogs.

    I am not interested in ANYONES politics, what I am interested in is saving dogs from the green, applying medical and surgical solutions and finding the perfect home for these orphans-simple

    This has nothing to do with your situation Choppa, but I have seen first hand the bitchiness between rescue groups.
    I don't understand it, if the main priority is for the dogs, then why does it seem to be more about who has the best reputation and brownie points? Who has been doing it longest and better at it etc etc
    It's pretty sickening actually.

    Oh and Chop, all rescue dogs need desexing why wouldn't you make sure they are fixed before taking them?
