I know, I'm starting to want to get the heck out of here! I hate this. She tried to turn me in for abuse to intimidate me out of telling people about Badger as I rehome him myself (??? how's that supposed to work?). Luckily we'd had the person in charge of animal control AND agriculture in our town out just last month to do a barn inspection so they didn't bother to come out and just called me on the phone to ask me if I was beating my dog (and the phone let the message through in a timely fashion by some miracle). He met the dogs last month. Beaten dogs aren't happy and outgoing and in Badger's case, somewhat rude attention hogs. That lady is rotten to the core.

Telling our ag commission and animal control guy a fish story about beaten dogs on the weekend and leaving your name (I think you have to own complaints like that) is a great way to get the word out in town that you're a terrible breeder though. I don't think the police are going to bother me again unless she makes good on her threat to call the state police too and they bite. I'm a little concern she's going to sue us now, but we'll see. Lawyers are expensive. But so is being rotten.

About now I wish I never got Badger. Dog parks are fun, right? Bailey's got lots of dog parkin it in her future so she doesn't wind up down because my nerves can't handle this.

Holy Crap - I guess she thinks the best defense is a good offense. What a b...witch! What can she sue you for though? You bought a dog from her that has a seizure disorder. That's the truth and she can't change that. She may very well be all bluff and trying to scare you into being quiet because if it goes to any kind of legal action she can't fight the vet's findings. Have you been able to get any of his seizures recorded?

Not sure. Planet New Hampshire, hopefully not too rich New Hampshire. I'm sure she can claim her non-OFA certified dogs are healthy(if i could turn back the clock...) and maybe because I didn't do all the expensive tests at a specialist I'm not allowed to say anything to anyone ever. It doesn't make sense for me to do those tests. I'm not going to breed my dog. I want to get rid of my dog. He is unfit to do the work he was sold to be able to do (or even to live with my kids) and I don't want to put thousands into him right now. I'm settling with taking good care of him until someone else takes him (or until I get him euthanized). It was her job to do the tests with her breeder dogs, not my job on my dog that was meant from the start to be neutered as soon as he stopped growing. The dog has epilepsy, as per the vet.
