Was njchism bannned or what??? I was just wondering, as I've not seen her name on the list of who's on the forum just now for a few months now. Has she been banned or does she just not want to come on to the forum anymore?????
It amazes me what some people "can't do" for their pets. My husband and I over the years have actually canceled 2 vacations because one of the pets got sick and needed medication while we would have been gone. And it's not even that we couldn't afford both the vacation and the vet bill. We just thought it wasn't fair to the pet to have someone else take care of them at a time like that. Like seabreeze said, pets are family.
She is young, and poor. I would give her a few years to get herself straight before I would judge her too harshly. I am 45 now. When I was 18 I can see things that she and I had in common, nothing that I am now proud of, things I regret, that when I got older, I realised there were different ways to handle than how I did at the time. Not everybody has money. She seems to have common sense. She will find ways to afford the things the dogs need, I did. It helps a lot when people give you advice that helps make you better, and does not just put you down. What she said about living poor in SC being a different world is so true. It took me YEARS before I realised that it is absolutely pointless for poor folk to have a conversation w/ landowners, and people w/ jobs that make real money. We live in completly different worlds.
Oh, I was reading the stuff that Cschimizzi put up, it was interesting. Lots of info on the girl. Reading between the lines, and having been there w/ her in a way, when I was that age, makes for a deeper understanding of the whole untidy pile of info.
Cricket I noticed that in the old post that you were stressing that she may not even have a dog. At one point I didn't think she did either. I guess we know different now that she has puppies for sale listed on two different sites.
Kitty being poor and 18 years old does not excuse ignorance or cruelty. And she show both in several post not just that one. She has money for things that she needs but puts her animals on the back burner. It is obvious that she is a byb. If she knows enough about breeding than she should know how to care for a dog. At one point she had 30 dogs in her care.
Well if she didn't have money to take her dog to the vet when he was dying of something totally preventable, how is she going to afford to care for and vaccinate all those puppies? It really frustrates me to think of poor little pups coming into the world in the hands of someone like her, someone who would sit there and let a puppy die right in front of her when it could have been prevented.
