Yeah, well, CFno5 - I posted on that thread too. And just because I believe some unusual things doesn't make me a Freak Rescuer unworthy of respect.

You should be allowed to have whatever convictions you want religiously and ethically, as long as you provide good animal care and make a positive difference on the rescue world. I really hope she wasn't saying what it sounded like she was saying, or I might get offended.

Hey, my post was supposed to be a joke poking fun at myself.

I'm sure if Lynx wants to elaborate on her statement, she won't be at a loss for words to do so.

But she wrote, "there are... many strange people out there (think 'aliens')."

Maybe she meant you are strange.

Maybe she meant there are aliens impersonating real people out there.

Maybe she meant there are crazy aliens planning to take over the world and end human existance as we know it by pretending to fight for the rights of animals by infiltrating PETA and other non-profit and government organizations.

Maybe she meant none of those things. I can only take her words at face value. She said "strange." She didn't say "unworthy of respect."

So you're a freak. So what? Wear it as a badge of honor! I do.

:D

Seriously, I know you posted in the alien thread and your views are unconventional. But I think anyone who conforms to all of society's norms and expectations is a weak follower who can't think for himself. I'd use the word "sheep," but that's a touchy subject right now, ironically enough, in that very thread. Don't be mad when people call you weird and crazy. It simply confirms that you have a grip on reality.

Just had a thought on the Responsible Rescue thread. I would add as #2: Does not show. and somewhere down around #23: Does not attend shows.

Paravati, it was not a reference to you at all. I think sometimes when we meet people we don't understand at all, we think of them as aliens. Like I said in another post, if Michael Jackson doesn't prove there are aliens on this earth, nothing does. You are a genuine, believable, honest person I certainly admire. And I hope you do rescue for as long as it is right for you.

You know, Lynx, that comment makes me think of MIBII.

Slinky, Josephine won't be going to her house because pitbull person never sent her an address.

I feel pretty safe saying that if Josephine had an address, she'd be on it in a New York minute.

Ha! No, both because of the lost contact and the story that has holes in it. Around here you can get shot by those backyard breeders. But I could always let loose my hounds. As I stated before, I know just about everyone in the veterinary community and animal control in Oroville and Butte County. Our clinic in Chico takes care of several K9 officers and their partners. It wouldn't be too difficult. As it is, I can make some calls.

There are a lot of backyard "pitbull" breeders here and many dog fighting rings or show persons of your standard "sell them to Japan" variety. One person I used to work with (she was a client), sanctioned and ran local shows and had a breeding operation. The puppies were kept in crates all day in their own waste. Highly parasitized puppies (usually whips and roundworms--sometimes coccidia). They had the parvo protocol down pat, but we didn't treat all of the positive dogs. We saw a puppy in cardiac arrest (which was resuscitated several times) due to the high parasite burden. Real winner.

I'm not sure what attending shows really says (I think I'd go if there were one nearby purely out of curiousity, to see what it was like -- and I'd pass out some care pamphlets). There may be different motivations for doing so. Showing is another matter.

P.S. Not going to change it now. I'd have to change all those darn numbers (you didn't use the list function which would number automatically -- I think).

How about in a week or two, when you're happy with it, send me the exact copy you want up and I can edit it then.

To attend a show does not necessarily contribute to the profit of the show. That's a good point, Lynx. Are there any rescuers out there who walk in to pet stores that sell animals to check out conditions (and possibly chase around the manager)? I would think that to be similar.

It is the showing that is not a good idea. I even knew a "guinea pig rescue" who had never bred cavies, but showed some of the showable rescues (doing fairly well--not wonderful, but enough to continue showing for a while and be competitive). She's really a collector and I have known other "rescues" to do so. It does make the reputable rescues look bad. Anyone can print off a few pamphlets, business cards, and a sign or two and call themselves "Guinea Pig Rescue." There are but few out there that I would consider true rescues and I like the idea of a printed list to help inexperienced members of the public distinguish the characteristics.

OK,
I did not read every line of bullshit you people put up, but I dont really care what you have to say. I had to leave yesterday because my sister needed me. I am sure you guys dont care about people just guinea pigs. What the hell does spelling have anything to do with guinea bigs? nothing you just want to be fat ass bitches. I came here and was totaly nice but not any more. I am leaving this board and yes Josephine I will be e-mailing you to give you my address just to prove to you that my animals are just as well taken care of as yours. None of my puupys have any health problems. I am a registered kennel and not a back yard breeder.OH, and I pay for my own house thank you I work hard for it and the government gives me no money so you can all just [expletive deleted] off.Josephine if you are interested e-mail me.

I wasn't aware that 17 year olds could sign contracts, which one would need in order to buy a house. Unless you paid cash up front, which isn't likely.

How many people are actually begging you for puppies? Why are your dogs kept in back yard kennels if you are all so fired up about your love for your pets?

It has been my experience that pits are nearly impossible to GIVE away, so I really am curious as to who is buying them.

Signed,
A Fat Ass Bitch.

One more inconsistency in her "truths". In the beginning of this thread she says she likes to use the same name in all messageboards and that name is American_pitbull13. Well, at CM she started using that same name but then used an unregistered name of bacardipitbull when she responded to her own thread. She then logged in and submitted the same reply a second time under the name of American Pitbull13.

This is a definite troll in my eyes. Too many lies and inconsistencies.

Are the studs on your tight leather pants, or are you implying that YOU are the stud?

Implying, but not achieving. I turn 50 in a few months and Jim's threatening to put me out to pasture. Sigh. It's no good to get old. My genetic clock keeps chiming Florida, Florida, Florida....
