This is Tammy.. lacey's mommy.. i want to write this as a story to ALL animal lovers..
Cindy-rella was a rescue from a kill shelter in VA. she had one eye that due to an attack from another dog she lost the use of it but it didn't cause any pain and was left (*as for amount of actual use she had of it i don't know)..
she was only 4 months old when they caught her living wild in VA and through emails and making a new friend that despritely wanted a home for her i took her and the others (5 total) in. all but one was found to be able to place in a home.. the large male was found to be extremely aggressive and was put down.
cindy was never found a home due to the eye injury.... no one wanted a special needs lab mix (labs are a dime a dozen these day's ya know).. so she stayed here with us.. she had came in a VERY shy lil 12 lb weekling and grew into a very trusting / loving (to family only) lil 20 lb girl.
a "friend" came to live with husband and I and with CONSTANT persuasion from her i took cindy and 3 other's to our local animal shelter. this is a prodominately NO kill shelter and with all the dogs being spayed and up to date on all vacines and very sweet i thaught that they would be fine.
now i can't honestly say that i lost all ability to THINK FOR MYSELF but as we all have i'm sure experienced atleast once in our lives the time where we're swayed to think one way over another i let the dogs go..
since taking in the dogs i've written the shelter several times to check on them to make sure NOTHING happened to ANY of them.. my main concern was for cindy due to the eye and for chi-baby due to aggressive tendencies.. well a woman called me 2 day's later and said she had adopted chi-baby so that worry was off my brain atleast..
still NOTHING about cindy.. the other 2 dogs were posted on their site but nothing on cindy.. no returned emails NOTHING...... i finally called and they told me they didn't have or get a lil girl dog as i described!!
i finally HAD IT.. i wrote one last email to the head person at the shelter.. i included pictures of cindy and PLEADED with her to atleast TELL ME what happened........
i got an email this morning.....about 2 weeks later!! saying that they were NOT in the habbit of telling people what happen's with their dogs that are turned in but wanted me to know that cindy was PUT DOWN (*euthanised) 3 day's after being brought in.......... :(
i have sence written her back for an explanation as to what caused them to think this lil girl needed to be euthanised....... was it that she bit someone? had she become aggressive? had she became sickly and needed to be put down? and as i'm sure you're all guessing NO response yet..........
with all this being said..........
from now until my dieing day i have to deal with my decision for putting her life in jeopardy!! that decision will haunt me for now on..... my heart doesn't ache for a life lost.. i could about live with that.. it aches for a life TAKEN due to my stupidity!! and that is something that i can't forgive myself for......... and to know that she didn't deserve that!!
so in closing.....
REST IN PEACE my dear friend!! PLEASE forgive me for my cowardest act and please know that i love and miss you!!

its been a LONG time since me and mom have had a free minute to get on here and update my diary.. I have just had 5 COUNT'EM 5 babies!! I had 3 girls and 2 boy's...... mom is VERY PROUD of me.. she tell's me that this is my very last litter because she say's i'm an OLD girl.. i don't think going on 5 is old... i mean how would she like me to call her OLD at 39??????
Anyway's.... mom has just had a family meeting with all of us and told us that uncle Todd is paying for them to go to the beach (him to) for 3 whole day's and we aren't allowed to go.. HOW WRONG IS THAT!! i mean really!!
only good thing about it is that mom and dad will be gone for 3 day's.. can everybody say P~A~R~T~Y!!!! break out the dog milkbone!!

my mom and i were looking on petfinder today and she starting giggling when she found another site for dog lover's to chat on..
My mom is crazy about me and all other dog's so i'm glad she get's to meet more people like her to write to.. me i don't see what all the comotion is about..
mom say's that we get to go "rescue" another little baby tomarrow, and i'm looking forward to it.. i like meeting new doggies and having a new playmate arround the house even though sometimes its not for very long. My mom say's that we rescue because alot of mommies and daddies don't get to keep their babies anymore or don't want them.. why is that?
I want to tell you about my family.. there's my daddy.. he is a parts supervisor what ever that is.. all i know is that sometimes he comes home grouchy and doesn't want to hold me.. there's my mommy.. she is the love of my life.. we go everywhere together, my favorite place is anywhere with great smell's coming out of the little window that my mom's car pull's up to.. then they actually hand you food through the window.. i think that is just great.. we need that at home!! then there is Jenny.. she is my mommy's neice that lives with us.. mom want's to "adopt" her too, but we're having to find out how.. then there is my doggy family.. Amber she is 5, Samantha she is 1.5 - she's a foster dog that mommy fell in love with and kept.. Beasty boy is a 2 yr old.. he's another foster / rescue that momma kept. then i have 3 kitty brother's but don't tell anyone i like them.. you know how that can give a girl a bad reputation..
well, i'm gonna go.. my mom's foster kitten's (oh their new.. only about 2 week's old) are crying so mom and me have to go feed them..
i'll write again soon!!
