    Silly dogs! You are passing up a fortune in insurance compensation. You must delete your above post if I'm going to help you win this medical law suit (the kind with the most $$$). Trust me on this.........I have inside info. The Big Guy, after he retired from law enforcement (34 yrs) went to work for the District Attorney's office......and what did he investigate?!? Workmen's compensation insurance fraud! (OK - so you're not exactly workpersons but we'll work with it). He will tell us if there is an investigator spying on you looking for fake injuries......limp ALL the time! ALSO - daughter #2 worked in the office of a chiropractor for 15 yrs! I'm sure she can coach us in the right terminology to use.....or not to use For now.....don't give any more statements or post anything else on the internet. We will at least get you a new Lexus SUV out of this.

    Mum had a car crash!

    Jasmine: Loss of appetite? Don’t fink so! That would be AWFUL!!! Mum had stiff neck stuff but that meant more snuggles and stuff, but the appetite thingy sounds like I could die! I think I need more treats! And a second dinner. Just to be sure. Appetite stuff could be sneaky, couldn’t it? Need sausages to see. Can we claim for weather? It has been raining for AGES! Cato: Its OK Aunties. Mum did have a stiff neck, but she could still do important stuff like bending up and down with our food bowls, and carrying me up and down stairs. And lap snuggles. So she is fine. Mrs Insewrance phone lady asked her lots of questions, but unless her head falls off in a few days, she is fine. I would know if Mum was poorly. Tara: Oh no! Jasmine, you made Mum’s head fall off!!! Mum: Calm down everyone! No heads falling off, now or in the future! Toys, snuggles and dinner will all be there as needed. I did have a tiny neck twinge, but it is All Better now, and I will go and see Mr Chiropractor, and get him to check me over, next week. Not that Mrs Insurance needs to know that. I go to the chiropractor regularly. No point in supporting Insurance profit margins and retirement plans , is there? Now, who wants a brush? Cato, Tara, Jasmine: Me!!!

    Oh dear! Jasmine - do you have a whiplash? "Everyone" gets whiplash after being rear-ended and then they sue for medical (vet) costs, pain and suffering, lack of appetite, increased appetite and loss of libido, an inability to concentrate and many, many other dreadful injuries. Oh wait! How about Mum.......she might have whip-larue-lash too and you can add "loss of Mama snggles" to your complaint. But of course, lack of transport to daily mental health exercises is the BIG one!

    I'm glad everyone is ok. Cars can be fixed or replaced!
  13. Tara: Mum and Jasmine had a car crash! It woz all Jasmine's fault! Mum: Now Tara, you know that isn't true. You can't blame Jasmine for what happened when she was a passenger sitting peacefully in her crate in the car, can you? Tara: Yes I can! You woz only in the car cos you were picking Jasmine up from her sleepover. If you had been safe at home with me and Cato then your car wouldn't have been crunchified. And we could be going on nice trips to interesting walks. Mum: Hmmm. Well I kind of see a bit of twisted logic there. But it really wasn't Jasmine's fault. She was asleep in the back, so she doesn't deserve any blame at all. We are both fine. And the man who drove into the back of us was very nice and polite, and accepted that it was all his fault. It was just an unfortunate little accident, and now the car has been sent to be mended and we have a different car for a bit, but dogs are not allowed inside it. So no car trips to the park, or the beach, or the woods. Which is a pity. We are stuck with daily treks round the streets and to the cemetery. Maybe the beach on the weekends. Sorry chaps. Shall we show them the pics, so they can see what happened? Cato, Tara and Jasmine: Yes!!!

    Tara: Oh, HUMPING is silly-Cato-boy stuff. I don’t do that! Cato does though. But he prefers cushions. He looks very silly when he does it. Mum says she is going to steal Puggy AND yellow python and Pink Piggy to give them all a b*th!!! How mean is that? B*ths are horrible!

    Bless you for the great work that you do. I would love to do this kind of work one day when I am retired.

    It's going to be a sad week-end

    The Mom passed last night. I didn't realize she was so close to the end. She was only 44 . I expected to pick him up on Saturday....but have offered to get him immediately. He can hang out with us until the week-end transport. I imagine the household is in turmoil. At least this was in place so quickly and it's one less thing for the family to take care of.

    So heartbreaking! You are so compassionate to be able to do what you're doing. Such sad situations for both people and pups.

    Oh my goodness , how very sad indeed. My heart goes out for the little boy. But this dog must be so confused too, at least he’s got another sweet home to go to. I have to say Marlene , You are a treasure, doing what you do for these paws.
  28. A sad story.....but it's the best we can do. About a year ago one of the Boxers in our rescue went to a "forever home". Nice family with a little boy about 6. He was a senior who had been in foster care for 2 years and although he was treated like their own - he was waiting for a real committment. We have been kept up to date, seeing the little boy and the senior dog becoming best buddies (he's an only child). Pictures of camping, going to the beach, sleeping together, going places in the car. We were thrilled. Today I got a call asking if I could pick him up.....they are in my town. The mother is dying of breast cancer and the husband (who was never a part of the dog's life but tolerated him) wants him gone. Who knows why......maybe he is just overcome with the near future. But one has to feel so sorry for the little boy....losing his Mama and his best friend and buddy. A senior who probably doesn't have that many years left. So I'm going to pick him up tomorrow morning, keep him a few days and then drive him to his new family. It will be a good home, older couple, one home all the time, one works 2 days a week, no other dogs. He will be well cared for and comfortable. But my heart hurts for his boy. I've had to do this a couple of times before. Once when the mother in a family died and shortly afterwards the dad died suddenly. A boy and a girl were going to live with their uncle who could not take their 2 Boxers. The kids cried, we hugged, took pictures and I promised I'd let them know their dogs could stay together and we would find them a home with another kid(s) to take care of. The other time was a woman who had a back injury and had to be hospitalized - her dogs were boarded (for an expected short time)with her vet. After months in the hospital, surgeries and attempted re-hab her doctor told her she was going to be in a wheelchair the rest of her life. The dogs were young and required a lot of exercise as well as being a danger to her because they were typical boisterous Boxers. I went to the vet hospital to pick them up and was surprised to see the very disabled owner in her wheelchair. She cried and made me promise they would not be euthanized. I assured her we would find them a happy home where they could run and play and get lots of exercise. That was another painful transport of good dogs who had done nothing wrong. It is what it is and at least I'm grateful to work with rescue where everything is done to keep tabs on our forever homes and to "be there" when our dogs need us - again.
