    As a friend of Arlene’s reading a couple of these posts was very upsetting and I can only imagine how here husband and children would feel if they came upon those messages.

    Of course it’s okay to want to find out more information – but thank you for showing others how it’s done, with kindness and compassion – interest in more information and heartfelt compassion for the family. Also, I noticed a huge thing that your message did NOT have that the others had – BLAME. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.

    • You are very welcome. So sorry for your loss. Compassion is a human and humane trait that is sorely lacking when emotions take over. One can be passionate and compassionate at the same time. These victims of dog violence, are just that, victims.

  2. Argh. Dogs as fashion accessories. Again.

    And THAT ladies and gentlemen, is why dogs are being ruined.

    That’s not a disposable pile of flowers–those are living, breathing animals that will likely live longer than the marriage.

    Thanks for news article, Debbie.

  3. All the news articles are the same because their only basis is what police released — the police statement that we also linked too.

  4. Do any photos of the attacking dogs exist ?
    The shelter the dogs went to refused to release pictures .
    Untill there are photos of the actuall attacking dogs I do not believe these were Coonhounds , especially as the family were known to own Pit mixes .
