Simpatico: Furiends... Be thankful.


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Furiends... Be thankful.

Yesterday morning we had new neighbors begin to move in to the house 2 doors up. They left their dog, looks like a pitty/boxer mix, in the backyard, in the sun, in a small wire carrier cage, around 2 pm. The dog has been stuck in that carrier since 2 pm yesterday, with no reprieve, and as I can tell no one has been back to the house.

All food and water that had been left, and what we have given to help it out during this weather, has been knocked over repeatedly because it is scared and alone. It is now hoarse from barking.

I called Animal Control this morning.  I didn't want to call as we have a kill shelter in Lexington. But I had couldn't see any other options left.  This poor baby will die if the temperatures get to 90+ like anticipated.

Be thankful, my furry friends, you have a owner who cares about you. And say a little prayer that something positive happens for this poor dog. 

****Update: Animal Control came and removed the dog just a bit before the rental people showed up with their truck filled with couches and boxes. (Safe to say they are just mean people and not in an accident or something...) AC left a note on the door. I do not know more than this, my friends. But I do know that even if placed at Lexington Humane Society it is a better existence than being left in the sun in 90+ heat with no food or water.

That poor woofie. I hope those stoopid humans get locked up out in the hot!

From the mom - as a caring animal lover, you had no choice BUT to call AC. The new neighbors didn't leave you any alternative - PLEASE let us know what happens, if anything. What the new neighbors did is a crime and they need to know that. Have they returned yet? I really don't understand stupid people who are deficient in common sense.

Sometimes there's no choice but to call AC. Poor, poor baby. I'm sorry you have to live near such people

NO! We won't stand for that. We'll go get that pup ourselves if needed. Who do we call?

You did the right thing in calling Animal Control. They were the only ones who could help that poor doggie. You saved his life!

You did the right thing. Poor woofie. We can't stand people who are mean to animals. Be warned: if they're mean to animals, they'll be mean to people. Stay safe and alert. xoxo

You get the Gold Medal for the impawtant rescue! Thank you from all of us in Blogville for helping that poor little puppers. I hope they get a hefty fine for being such Knuckleheads. They don't deserve the love of an animal!!! Let us know if the dog is returned to them.

We'll keep our paws crossed for the little doggie. Maybe instead he will be re-homed to a GOOD home.

How distressing that your new neighbors are so mean! Thanks for looking out for the poor feller.

I am responding to a comment you left on richellas blog ( imparting grace)saying that promiscuous people got punished with stds.. I was unable to post on that site, I don't know why, but felt strongly enough to find you on this site... I am a 54 yr old christian woman who has had two sexual partners in her life... By no standards am I PROMISCUOUS, but I have an std... I am hiding in shame, afraid to date because of the assumptions of people like yourself... Please do not judge... You really upset me

Awful and shame on them. Have a good day and hope you are enjoying the Olympics both animal and human.
Best wishes Molly.
