but am definitely relieved that what's done is done!
We had the autumn festival here over the long weekend (sat, sun, mon) and GSD Breeder put in 2 dogs one in Puppy and one in Open Bitch. Have been having some major trouble with her.......hard to explain but I was feeding, cleaning, grooming the dogs etc. I had been training the dogs (12 OF THEM!!!) every single day (minimum of 3 hours training) and in the last 3 weeks have received $10!!! yes thats right..........I have been paying petrol out of my own pocket etc and have not been getting paid for EITHER training or handling in the ring. I have even been buying HER lunch!!! ..............yes I am too nice, Ive already come to this conclusion lol . Anyway I told her this weekend I wanted at least $30 for the 3 days (which I think is fair?!)
Anyway took mum with me to the show yesterday and grabbed some gloves out of breeders glovebox. Well sure enough at the end of the day when I ask for the money she tells me it had been in the glovebox of her car and then had the audacity to ACCUSE ME of stealing it!!!! She abused my mum in front of everyone and yelled and screamed that I was a thief etc. Well to put it nicely she coped a mouthful, loud enough for the entire group to hear. I chucked her gloves in her face and told her to have fun finding another handler and that I should have listened to the stories to start with............they weren't lies!
Anyway walking away (quite upset because I very much enjoy showing the GSD's) another breeder approached me. Offered me TRIPLE the money for handling and it would be just that........HANDLING!!! NO TRAINING ETC ETC.
Oh and she only has 3 dogs lol! She offered to take me to the nationals and pay for all expenses if I would still like to go. I would only be watching however (which would be great anyway) I met her dogs.........GORGEOUS
And to top it all off...............I found out today from someone that the breeder (one I used to handle for) had borrowed Bailey's water bowl to give her dogs a drink (on a few occasions) and one was ill and has SEVERE diarrhoea.
Sure enough who do you think is ill today with severe diarrhoea?????
My poor baby girl
I have some pics to add soon............ oh and I didnt get paid of course lol
