Mom sitting down, getting up in the morning (can't I stay under the cover just a little longer?) The sound of a goat - he freaks!! The words "Pookie Bear" - he goes nutz over that one!!

Floppy Frisbee, indestructable ball, mom

Best Tricks:
Jumping over 6' after his frisbee. Being handsome by looking stupid.

Arrival Story:
Turner was at a kill shelter 3 hours away. I found him on Petfinder. Someone had adopted him and didn't show up at the vets office to pick him up :{ Their loss!! We drove 3 1/2 hours to get him (2 accidents along the way) and 3 hours home. While at the pound we took him out to see how he was. He bee-lined for a toy doll that he had played with earlier. Thus the passion for his frisbee and indestructable ball. Turner has had his share of ups and downs. He was bit in the lip by Max and received a puncture wound. Now he's afraid of other dogs getting into his space. We consulted a positve reinforcement trainer with wonderful results. Live with Turner has been crazy since day one and we wouldn't change it for anything!!

Bio:
Turner has ALOT of energy. We took him to a dog event when he was around 1 1/2 and he found lure coursing. He loved it so much that he was hurting himself to get the baggie on the line. He dislocated his back toe, chipped the cartlidge for his toe socket and twisted his back. With 4 months of chiropractic care he is back to normal. However, no more lure coursing. He will chase his frisbee until he drops. The latest joy is rolling his indestructable ball until he drops. We've made the front page of the local newspaper for Best Kisser at a dog event, I swear he tried to clean out my nasal cavity! He won these cool medals in the picture for Best Kisser, High Jump, Frisbee Catch and all around dog. He goes with me everywhere, flea markets, post office and of course the dog stores. He reminds me of how young he is and how old I really am!! But I love him no matter what!!

I actually talked to the prosecutor on your case!!! Next month it will be 3 years that I filed my complaint against the vet that didn't do your biopsy. She's a spitfire of a woman! When she asked for basic info about the case I told her a bit and she said. Your dogs name was Turner right? Shivers went up my arms!! She knew your case so well! She stated that she had alot of issues with your case and that it was in fact moving forward. Your case is at the point where the expert has reviewed and they are awaiting the report. Then she will make a list of charges. LIST OF CHARGES against him!!!! When I told her today was your third anniversary of passing she said she felt so bad. We talked about your case. When I asked her if they found more charges than I alledged to would the punishment increase. She said yes. I'm so relieved. I informed her that I would be available for a hearing if necessary. That I just needed heads up to get the time off. She said she was relieved to hear that. I told her like I told the investigators my dog is dead and I'm mad. I've got nothing but time to see this through. She did mention that there was alot of problems with lack of information on the vets side. That my information and photos were very solid. I told her that she put me in a better place mentally knowing that she's focused and determined to see the right charges applied and stick. I feel so much better after talking to her. I know that it's just a matter of time and this monster will be held accountable for not only you but every pet he has harmed.

Love you Turner!

Mom

You left me peacefully. My life hasn't been the same since. When they say a piece of you dies they were right. Only it was a big piece of me when you died. I miss you so much Turner. Our case still isn't over, it's still pending. I'm starting to wonder if there will ever be closure. I think of you every day. Thank you for sending Grunt to me. He's so opposite of you - which you know I needed.

Love you Turner!

Mom
